Make Up For Ever Fall 2013 Blue Sepia Palette Swatches & Review

by - 05 November

I was instantly drawn to the Blue Sepia palette because I'm a neutral hoor. Plus, half the shades are matte, so it obviously had to come home with me. I've been using it for a couple weeks now, so I think I know how I feel about it.

128 (satin), 28 (matte), 152 (shimmer), Petrol Blue, 04 (matte), 17 (matte), 127 (satin)

Petrol Blue is supposed to be the star of the palette, but I actually haven't used it on my eyes yet. I think it would make a nice pop of color on the lower lash line, but I wouldn't wear on my lid because it's a bit too garish. Anyway, onto the swatches.

I already owned 28 and 128 before purchasing this palette, so it's no surprise that those two are my favorites out of the bunch.. I've used all the shades except for Petrol Blue more than once, and they all blend really nicely and last all day over my NARS primer. The texture on these is pretty decent. Soft and a little powdery, but no fall out. 04 swatches kind of patchy, but it's actually a nice, buildable black.

Overall, I don't regret the purchase but would probably just repurchase my favorites individually rather than buying the whole palette again.

Here's a super simple look I did with this palette.

  1. to see your face on here my dear :) I think that's a great-looking palette, I really like the neutral theme with a pop of color for fun. THIS I might actually purchase, for a palette-phobe :P

  2. Do it! It's a nice palette at a decent price (42 USD). I love palettes that don't have too many highlight shades, and this one fits the bill.

  3. You look flawless!!! I'm glad that you are doing makeup reviews again.

  4. You're so pretty! I love your brows and lip color!
