Blue eye makeup is often thought of as one of the horrors of the 80s/90s, however I personally love blue eye makeup and there are so many pretty products around which have come a long way since that powder blue Constance Carroll moment! Here are some of my favourites...
Collection Cosmetics seemed to have re-hauled their eyeshadow palettes and I picked the Collection Eyes Uncovered Eyeshadow Palette in the shade Wild Flower up a few weeks ago. I think it is a really sweet, petite palette, and even though it is small, there are still eight eyeshadows inside, which for £4.99, I think is a bargain. There is a mixture of mattes and shimmers, including candy floss pink, a bubblegum blue, a matte lavender blue, some neutrals and a few pops of brighter colours. I think this little palette is gorgeous, and there was no kick-back, just lovely, even pigmentation and I am definitely going to look at picking up some of the other colourways, although this one is definitely my favourite.
The Stila Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eye Shadows (£24.00 each) are a cult beauty favourite and they have recently released a new formula, the Stila Suede Shade Liquid Eye Shadow. I have this in the shade Something Blue, a pretty bluebell blue, and I did expect this to be quite matte, however once you apply it to the lids, it is slightly pearlescent and slightly sheer. I would have preferred something a little bolder, or fuller coverage, but it is still a beautiful shade. A shade I adore from the original formula is Freedom, which is the most beautiful slightly mint green/sea foam green shimmer and reminds me of mermaids. It isn't technically blue blue, but I wanted to include it as it is one of my favourite shades from the collection.
My final two blue eye products are from Colourpop, who released a rainbow selection of eyeliners and mascaras, which I think was last year. However, the Colourpop Creme Gel Liner ($5.50/£4.41) and Colourpop Creme Gel Colour ($6.50/£5.22) in Prance are just perfection. They are cheap as chips, and yet work incredibly well. These give off colour like nobody's business and the formula is so smooth that is applies really easily to the delicate eye area to give you the freshest pop of sky blue you ever did see. The Creme Gel Colour does look like a little pot of gel eyeliner, but I also like to use this all over the lid with a swipe of my finger.
All the Loves,
