"Beautiful In Blue"

The color of the day is absolutely blue!  Most of my blue cosmetics are for the eyes, and I do occasionally enjoy wearing blue nail polish.  It was hard to narrow this collection down to a manageable amount, since I have a ton of blue products.  So, I tried to mention my most used blue items.  The list could have easily been twice as long!

Pictured Items:
NYX Candy Glitter Liner in Disco Queen
Victoria's Secret Lustre Eye Shadow in Wanted
Jesse's Girl Baked Eye Shadow in MoonBeam
Benefit Bad Gal Blue
L.A. Girl Matte Nail Color in Matte Blue Twilight
Rimmel Lasting Finish Polish in Fuel
VS Eyeliner in Midnight
Wet n Wild Idol Eyes Shadow Pencil in Distress
Stila Smudge Pot in Cobalt Clutch
Spell Cosmetics Mineral Shadow in Sublime

Eye Shadows:
SC Sublime, VS Wanted, Stila Cobalt Clutch, JG Moon Beam
  • Spell Cosmetics Sublime is a newer product for me, and I have been reaching for it every day.  It is a finely milled mineral shadow, and can be applied wet or dry.  I love the depth and intensity of this dark blue. It initially goes on very dark navy blue, and is very buildable to a blue-black color.  Not only is this a fabulous shadow, it is also a great liner.  It has true color payoff, incredible staying power, and has a subtle, slight shimmer.
  • Next is the Victoria's Secret Silky Eye Shadow Wanted, which is a pretty, shimmery midnight blue.  This shadow goes very sheer initially, and builds to a brighter more vivid hue.  I love the velvety smooth consistency of the VS shadows, and with a proper shadow primer, the staying power is decent.
  • Third from the left is Barbie ♥ Stila Smudge Pot Cobalt Clutch.  It is a gel liner, with a subtle shimmer to it.  I have found it works brilliantly as both a liner and as a brightening shadow base.  It performs well, and is a fab color, but it doesn't build well.  One layer is best, as additional layers cause flaking.
  • Last is the Jesse's Girl Baked Powder Eye Shadow MoonBeam.  It is a pretty, sparkly blue with pink veining.  It is a vibrant blue when applied dry, and a brilliant metallic blue with a pretty sheen when applied wet.

NYX Disco Queen, Wet n Wild Distress, VS Midnight

  • NYX Candy Glitter Liner Disco Queen is a multi color glitter, with blue, green, yellow and orange glitters.  It looks overall blue in the tube, and goes on a silvery, coppery, blue-ish color.  It is a dramatic and sparkly! 

  • Wet n Wild Idol Eyes Creme Shadow Pencil Distress is a metallic navy blue, and works both as a shadow or a liner. 

  • Victoria's Secret Liner Midnight is a deep blue, and the liner pen has a smudger on the end to smoke out the liner.

Benefit Bad Gal Blue

Benefit Bad Gal Blue is a brightening blue mascara.  It has a large plumping applicator.  The blue tones on your lashes help the whites of your eyes stand out even brighter!

Rimmel Lasting Finish Polish Fuel is a pretty blue with a pearlized finish.  It lasts about 3 days until it chips, unless you apply a protective top coat.  One coat is very opaque, as it is here in the photo.  Please excuse my cuticles :( 

L.A. Girls Flat Finish Nail Color Matte Blue Twilight is on the lighter side of blue in comparison to the above mentioned products.  I enjoy this line of polishes, but it is prone to premature chipping, and to apply a top coat defeats the matte intentions.  It is fun for a novelty, short term polish look.

This concludes my take on the best of blues!  I hope you enjoyed.  Please share your favorite blue products, as I am always looking for new things to try out. 

Thanks for reading!
