COLOR SPOTLIGHT is a monthly series on Sifa’s Corner. Every month I show 10 or more products featuring one specific color or products in the same color family. The color I chose for AUGUST is BLUE!
BLUE is the color of depth and stability…It calms our mind and also shows loyalty & confidence. The particular shade of blue I am going to concentrate on today is from the darker side of the color spectrum.

This liquid liner can be best described as a “peacock blue” with golden-green fine shimmers. If you want to spice up your liner or eyeshadow game, you should definitely try this out.

Giorgio Armani eye tint fluid eye color film-
This eye tint was released earlier this year. It looks like a lip gloss at a glance, but it’s a liquid to cream eyeshadow. You can apply it with the wand provided or your fingers. This particular color is a deep navy with subtle dark shimmers. It looks like a satin finish when swatched.

With intense color payoff and great formulation, Colourpop shadows are something to try out if you haven’t yet.
Etiquette: This is described as “True royal blue in a Pearlized Finish”.

MAC dazzleshadow- GET PHYSICAL:
This is described as “Purple with light blue sparkles”. I included this color because it’s a very pretty transition between purple and blue. Depending on the base, you can change the intensity of the blue-purple color balance.

This is a rich blackened navy with a pearly finish. If you apply it with a damp brush, the color intensity increases.

Anastasia Beverly Hills eyeshadow-
This is a satin blue, which will perform better with a primer. This shadow performed relatively poor in comparison with the other shadows in this list.

Inglot shadows have one of the best formulations in beauty industry. With or without primer, they give intense color payoff and rich vibrancy.

As I have talked about 11 blue eyeshadows so far, let’s see how they compare to each other in color and finish. These pictures are taken under different lightings. Click on these for better and enlarged view.
YSL couture variation 10 color expert eyeshadow palette-
Released for Spring-2015, this is a really pricey palette. If you are familiar with the allure of higher-end brand products, you can have a look at this palette. Most of the colors are cool toned and they perform better with a good base underneath or applied wet.

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics nail color- TECHNOPAGAN:
Described as a “metallic blackened purple with a blue pearl sheen”, this is a opaque blue-purple.
