Two Ways to Win MAC Love Lace Suave Intentions Eyeshadow

Published in: Just For Fun, MAC Makeup

  • UPDATE: Jan. 9, 2009. The giveaway is now closed, and the winner will be contacted soon. Good luck! 🙂


Fitness! FITNESS!


And nutrition, bluh. Since New Year’s I’ve been trying to watch what I eat and thinking about getting back into shape for 2010.

When it comes to working out, I actually enjoy punishing myself with sweaty workouts (sick, I know!), but the whole healthy nutrition thing has proven to be quite a challenge for me.

At 10:38 a.m. today my tummy was ready for lunch. I know this because it started to growl. Nevermind that I’d only eaten breakfast an hour before, boo!

When it comes to my diet — much like how it is for me with makeup — it seems like everywhere I turn, temptation awaits!

Temptations like this lovely pan o’ MAC Suave Intentions Eyeshadow from the Love Lace collection. It brings to mind visions of yummy Skittles and forbidden (nom nom!) sweets.

I guess it’s good that I didn’t gobble it up, though, LOL! If I had, not only would I have a tummy troubles right now, but we wouldn’t be having a giveaway today. 🙂

The prize

One lucky lady will win a pan of MAC Suave Intentions Eyeshadow (a $15 value), a frosty, silvery blue from MAC’s recent Love Lace collection.

  2. Kris says:

    I love how this is a subtle blue-gray with shimmer.

  3. I have worn an electric blue shadow before for a smokey eye. I also love using dark blue shadow as a liner on the bottom lash line.

  4. Julia Jammal says:

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE blue eyeshadow. Especially teals and navys!

  5. Janelle says:

    o0o, I love blue eyeshadows! Lined around the eyes makes brown eyes pop!

  6. Jen says:

    I love blue eyeshadow! I wore a smokey blue blend just yesterday (using MAC’s Love Lace from this collection, actually).

    I feel you on the needing to get back in shape. I think I eat impulsively. Like, I’m not hungry, but I want to munch on something anyway. Such a bad habit.

  7. Diana says:

    I saw a fantastic blue cat eyes tutorial on Youtube. Blue smokey makes my eyes pop!

  8. maguire says:

    i like blue eyeshadows, but i think they look better on girls with brown eyes than those with blue, like me. still, i think this shadow looks gorgeous and i’d love to wear it with something gunmetal-y…. yum

  9. marivel says:

    i like soft blues & some electric ones. dark ones are hard for me to blend sometimes, but maybe it’s just the shadows itself

  10. Connie says:

    I’ve only ever used dark blues but this shade is gorgeous!

  11. Kelly says:

    I have always loved blue eyeshadow and luckily have the coloring to wear it!
    .-= Kelly’s last blog post… Weekly Poll =-.

  12. Emily says:

    I adore blue eyeshadows, only if you wear them properly. We used to have “White Trash Wednesdays” when I was in college and all the girls would flock on the bright blue eyeshadow, because it’s mostly seen as trashy and trampy. I think it can be beautiful and elegant at the same time.

    I think my favorite is Freshwater.. or Aquadisiac, even though it’s more of a aqua bluish. Love your blog!

  13. Heather says:

    I used to wear blue eyeshadow when I was younger and my older cousin would make me up, it was in the height of the fad in the 80’s though. I think now blue eyeshadow is making its way back into society but in a way that is sassy and sophisticated, and a little edgy. It’s fun and no longer something women are scared to try.

  14. DonnaN says:

    love me some smokey blues, but I also like beautiful aquas too…..heck, just give me anything blue, and I’ll be happy!!

  15. Raquel says:

    I would love to try that! I actually have a hate/hate relationship w. blue e/s. I have yet to find one that works for/on me.

  16. Briana says:

    I used to wear really garish blue eyeshadow when i was really young. Now I still wear it occasionally but in a mored subdued fashion lol.

  17. Supriya says:

    I love blue eyeshadows, and I forget I have them and thus forget to wear them!! I love wearing blue eyeshadows with an all black outfit!! I’m such a neutral girl that I keep forgetting to wear more color 🙂

  18. Anita says:

    One summer I wore Mac’s Freshwater everyday. I grew out of it the instant a bus driver wryly observed that it matched my summer coat exactly.

    My current favorite is the blue in Cargo’s Tahiti quad, which I wear toned down on it’s own or blended out with a muted neutral.

  19. Alexandra says:

    Freaking in love with Blue e/s right now…Deep truth, Tilt, Moons Reflection, Electric Eel, I already have and I just swatched Suave Intention tonight and I know I have to have it !!!

    I’m also in love with Metallic Indigo by Lancôme (Karen get this one, MAC has no dupe for it, or any other brand, it’s a fabulous blue indigo with shimmer !! It’s way better in single e/s than in the quad, which had poor pigmentation) or Adore by UD

    Totally in love !!

    Hypnotizing is a great e/s from Love Lace too. Love it.

  20. Amanda says:

    Love Love Love blue eyeshadow, the brighter the better!

  21. JillyB says:

    I have blue eyes and I do wear blue eyeshadow. Usually lighter shades of blue though, more to the silvery side. This looks perfect! I like navy e/l too.

  22. CC says:

    I love blue eyeshadows, but I still cringe a little thinking about my first attempt at wearing a full smokey eye with azure shades in middle school (when I clearly did NOT know how to do so!).

  23. emily says:

    I like blue eyeshadow as long as it’s not too bright. Like 1970’s bright lol. I have a nice one I like to wear when I go out 🙂

  24. Cassi says:

    Blues have always scared me, but this is such a pretty and soft shade of blue that it seems like a good starter blue.

    I have hazel eyes and I tend to stick to neutral browns. I am trying to experiment more with make up this year. Its just sad how much I spend on make up a year and end up not using it! I have the stylish mauve Dior quint that I bought last year and I have never used it! Colors scare me for some reason, but I want to change that!

  25. amynaree says:

    I love blue shadows, I think they compliment any skin tone!

  26. Vanessa says:

    It took me a while, but I love blue eyeshadow! paired with black liner, it can make a really awesome smokey eye!

  27. Alisa says:

    I love blue eyeshadow. In fact, I’m wearing it right now – Steamy on the lid and Deep Truth in the crease and on the lower lashline.

  28. Stacie says:

    Love me some blue shadows. Back in the day I was scared of color, but not anymore! It seems I end up rocking greens and purples more than blue, though. Must change that!

  29. Molly says:

    Blue eyeshadow is like putting on fake lashes for me: unless I do it JUST RIGHT, it can go wrong very fast. I have blue eyes, so using a really bright blue liquid liner makes my eyes pop in a BIG way.
    I recently found that there’s a whole row of surprisingly wearable blues in the Sephora color play pallatte III- especially w/ a hint of my new favorite, Too Faced’s Label Whore. Have you used that one before? It’s so dreamy and like emerald with chocolate and gold… yum.

  30. Bethany says:

    I’ve never really worn blue eyeshadow but I’d LOVE to give this one a try! I’m trying to branch out from neutrals to some colors 🙂

  31. angela says:

    i dont own any blue eyeshadow, but i love wearing blue eyeliner. i would love to try this eyeshadow!

  32. normajean says:

    i’ve used blue eyeshadow 🙂 never used mac though

    i tend to turn it into an eyeliner sometimes

  33. Gina says:

    I used to love dark blue eyeshadow paired with silver in high school and then hated any type of blues in college. I think I found a happy median now because I don’t love them all but I love love rich blue eyeshadows like MAC Meet the Fleet and Climate Blue.

  34. Andrea says:

    I love shades of blue, I love to wear them with black blurred.
    I tweeted:

  35. Liza says:

    I love light sparkly blues for winter but haven’t tried all that many, since navy blue looks so bad on my green eyes.

  36. Allyson says:

    I love blue eyeshadow… mostly I wear it with a shimmery bark color – complements brown eyes perfectly!

  37. Mary O. says:

    I only have a few blue eyeshadows, and although I don’t wear them very often, I love using them for a smokey eye whenever i can 🙂

  38. jess says:

    I have never worn blue eyeshadow, but Suave Intentions looks gorgeous! I would love to try it on. I might hit up the MAC counter because I need some help putting together a face for my engagement/wedding pictures.

  39. Katie & Zena says:

    I like blue eyeshadow if it’s darker but I still have to figure out how to use lighter blues.

  40. charlie says:

    i was being daring, trying to step outside the box so about a year ago i bought Freshwater from MAC. after about 2 months i went to a concert w my friends and decided it was time for it. needless to say i loved it! i was super scared (who wants to look like a drag queen~ unintentionally that is LOL) but the blue really did complement my dark brown eyes. i’m not scared of blues anymore!! i want more blues!!

  41. jenn says:

    I love blue eyeshadow, electric eel is one of my favorites!

  42. Paula says:

    I don’t think I’ve worn blue eyeshadow in years. It definitely takes me back to the 80s.

  43. Sally says:

    Though blue eyeshadow does bring to mind the mom from the Drew Carey Show AND my grandma, I think it is totally do-able! I love the blues in Kat Von D’s palettes and wear them often. I love the softness of the Mac one pictured above! I would totally wear it!

  44. lexi says:

    Girl – I feel you! I have no problem sweating throw 60mns of spin or 90mns of Yoga but ask me to eat a salad for dinner everynight for a week and I’m on the verge of tears!!

    I love me some blue shadows – I LOVE the Love Lace shadow in my outer corners smudged with Sense of Style pencil on top and bottom lashes. That’s how i tend to wear most of my blue shadows – as an outer v color with a peach/nude on my lid.

  45. Miriam says:

    Even though I never wore makeup in high school, I was led to believe that blue eyeshadow makes girls look like hookers. I now realized how false that is. Blue eyeshadow, or any color eyeshadow for the matter, looks great on all skin tones. You just have to know what shades compliment your skin tone!

  46. Shivotra says:

    lol in high school i loved blue eyeshadow. lol
    no i only wear it to match a dress.
    with high voltage pink gloss, of course 🙂

  47. LauraJ says:

    I love blue eyeliner, but am still not sure about blue eyeshadows…

  48. Sarah says:

    I love blue eye shadows to make a smoky eye!

  49. Natalia says:

    I LOVE wearing blue eyeshadows, i used to wear it almost evryday but now ive been using purples but blue eyeshadows flatter almost evry eye color out there so, why not flaunt them? =) Love Lace reminds me a lot like Tilt which is a really pretty blue color

  50. Danielle says:

    I love blue eyeshadows, but I don’t wear them nearly as much as I would like to! This one looks gorgeous!

  51. Charm says:

    wow!!! That eyeshadow looks amazing 😛

  52. Mary Bearden says:

    I have not used blue eyeshadow in quite awhile but would love to give this one a try. I tend to lean towards lighter colors and this one looks beautiful.

  53. Halifax says:

    I don’t normally reach for blue, but I do have some blue shades for shadows

  54. Jenny says:

    Wow blue shadows? I have the shadowy lady quad, tone: grey quad, etc. I got so many different tones of blues & I love them so much! They accentuate my brown eyes indefinately! 🙂

  55. Lori says:

    i wore blue eyeshadow for the FIRST time this past jan!!

  56. Step says:

    Blue eyeshadow freaked me out for a long time because I associated it with 80s mall girls. I use navy liner sometimes though and it makes my eyes look so bright and white. I’m getting the Kat Von D Beethoven palette in the mail in a few days and can’t wait to play with the dark blue in there!

  57. Rae says:

    I looove blue shadow! Still hunting for “the one,” though — they’ve all been just a tiny bit too light or too dark so far.
    .-= Rae’s last blog post… What if Givenchy and Lancome became one? =-.

  58. Brittany says:

    Haunting is one I use every now and then. I also love Blue Calm–especially over black eyeliner. It creates the most gorgeous, intense blue color!

  59. HC says:

    I drool over blue shadows, but for some reason when they’re on my eyes, they don’t look as good 🙁 maybe I should pair ’em w/ purples but I love purples on my eyes!. I own MAC’s Sea & Sky Mineralized e/s, Strike-a-Pose, Talent Pool, Blue Flame and the tone:grey quad but have failed to wear any of them. Actually, I believe I wore Strike-A-Pose once in Vegas!

  60. Thom says:

    I love blue eyeshadow and I always tend to buy them too. I just don’t use them ever. I guess it is because I am too scare of wearing it outside the house. I do like to line my eyes in blue.

  61. Crissy says:

    I like a nice smoked out blue eye! I also really like navy eyeliner.

  62. Courtney says:

    I LOVE blue eyeshadow-and get criticized by that often since I have blue eyes. Blue is sooo versatile though- sheer wash with doe eyed liquid liner and 1940’s red lips, or bright bright bright blue (sometimes even topped with MAC’s blue liquid liner.)
    Good Stuff.

  63. I wear any color eyeshadow LOL. I have green eyes and blue shadow doesn’t really complement green eyes, but it’s fun!
    .-= Never Enough Nails’s last blog post… Your Opinion!!! =-.

  64. Elizabeth says:

    omg i looovvvveee anything blue. so of course i love blue eyeshadow. i usually wear them in a blue smokey eye with a darker navy blue in the crease and a slightly lighter shade on the lid along with some black on the outer corner.

  65. Jenn says:

    The only color close to blue that I’ve worn would probably be Mutiny Pigment. I don’t think I can pull it off very well, though.

  66. Crystal says:

    I like blue eyeshadows, but prefer the mixed tones that have green, purple, or other interesting interference in them.

  67. cloudburst says:

    Deep Truth is probably my favourite blue shadow – I was going to say Contrast, but that’s kind of purple-blue.

  68. Michele says:

    I love blue eyeshadows! I really love blending all different tones together, and even creating a smokey look with them. Have a good day dear!

  69. Jess says:

    I loooove blue shadows, but I think they stand out a little too much for daytime wear. One of my favourite blues is UD’s Peace that I have in the deluxe palette. Bright and beautiful and soSO fun. I’ve done a gold and blue look with Peace on the bottom lashes, and that turned out quite nicely. A friend told me it looked like a sunset over ocean waters. Haha~

  70. Corinne Ellis says:

    I love blue eyeshadows but i am often very iffy about wearing them because im afraid i might look super trashy :/

  71. Julbra says:

    I love deep blue eyeshadow because it brings out my eyes…but I normally steer clear of lighter shades.

  72. Lily says:

    every since state where the big scary catcher took off her helmet only to reveal sky blue eye shadows and bubble gum pink lip gloss, i have hated blue eye shadow. A navy liner? Sure, they look great. But a light blue. Ew. With a capital E. Although, i bet if someone with a little more skill and a better color wore it, it would look great 🙂

  73. Lydia says:

    i love this eyeshadow! I must admit I like blue eyeshadow when someone else is doing my makeup but it doesn’t look the same when I do it myself! I like that this one is frosty.

  74. Paula Caudill says:

    I am following you on twitter-and I just tweeted!!! @sexyknickers68

  75. Paula Caudill says:

    I love blue eyeshadow!!

  76. Lolly says:

    I have a KATE quad that is different shades of aqua blue and I adore it! I wore it when I was in Japan when I went to a jail theme restaurant! It was really fun!

  77. Ishtar says:

    It’s surprising- but one of my friends managed to grap her hands on the same blue shade by love lace (They were out of stock for a while). It was gorgeous, but my skimpy budget couldn’t offerd it (It’s expensive in OZ). I would absolutly love to win it, it’s my make-up addiction of the moment. I have other blue shades which i rock out every once in a while, but mac’s love lace eyeshadow is AMAZING!.

    I would really, truly-die for it.

  78. Carolanne says:

    I really wouldn’t know how I fair in blue eye makeup since I’ve never tried. But if I won this, that would all change! =]

  79. adinda says:

    first time i learn make eyeshadow is the most hated color for me…but then i learn alot from lots of tutorial how to use blue eyeshadow properly..and now i love it very much!

  80. Lisa says:

    Weirdly enough I didn’t like “the blue” when I was younger. Now that I’m of a “certain age ” I think a small pop of blue on the eye is kinda gorgeous. It needs to be well blended, the right color blue for your coloring and needs to be balanced by your other makeup.

    But all that said, that’s just my opinion, your mileage may vary. :0)

  81. Avianna says:

    love, love, love blues. it’s too bad that a lot of the deep, sapphire-toned shades (which are some of my faves!!) end up looking muddy and gross and completely unlike how they look in the pan. oh wells.

  82. inday says:

    i have recently fallen in love with blue eye shadows, especially darker/inky hues. they make a great smoky eye that isn’t too intense. haven’t tried any from mac (do you have any recommendations karen?) but there is a light/dark combo in clinique’s polar blue quad that i adore!

  83. Alli L. says:

    I love wearing blue eyeshadows, but I’m not sure they always go well with my light skin. My favorite way to wear it is a darker blue all over the lid and I dust a blue irridescent shadow over the dark so you get that duo chrome look. It’s hot!

  84. Jessica says:

    I’ve never tried blue eyeshadow , blue liner yes but I’ve never been daring enought to try eyeshadow. I think it might be time to try some though…

  85. Maria says:

    I like blue eyeshadows for my lower lash line for a pop of color

  86. Danielle says:

    I have tilt by MAC, but I don’t wear it much. If I do, it’s in a wearable blue look with neutrals tied in if that makes any sense? I hope to try to do more with blues one day.

  87. Gracie says:

    I LOVE using any blue eyeliner or eyeshadow as liner for my bottom lashes!

  88. Kat says:

    I’ve always been wary of blue eyeshadow because I’m a blond and I thought I’d look cheap, lol. But this looks like such a pretty blue that I could actually wear

  89. Judy says:

    I’ve always been afraid to try blue eye shadows. I tried a really pretty sea green eye shadow once and it didn’t turn out right on my asian skin tone…maybe I didn’t have the right primer 🙁
    Ever since then I’ve stayed away from blues and greens! I would love to try this though!

  90. MG says:

    i ♥ blue es and have a ton of them b/c blue is my fav. color 🙂

  91. Julia says:

    I *love* works amazingly well for me and my brown eyes 🙂

  92. Katie says:

    I love wearing a neutral brown eyeshadow and then using a blue eyeshadow as an eyeliner and then smudging like crazy!

  93. Pansy says:

    I use to be scared of blue eyeshadow because it reminded me of Mimi from Drew Carrey… but after I saw it on Hayden Panetierre’s ad for Revlon’s Matte collection, I decided to try it. Result: LOVE IT.

  94. Nancy says:

    My girlfriends and I rocked the frosty blue eyeshadow back in high school. LOL I’m not much of a blue, but have a beautiful deep blue by Bobbi Brown called Sapphire that I pull out whenever the mood strikes me. I actually just used it over the weekend.

  95. Jennifer says:

    I love blue eyeshadow until I was playing around with a palette one day and my boyfriend walked in and said “damn! Um no!”. He said that while I had blues on. He got me nervous about ever wearing it again 🙁

  96. Christina says:

    I’ll wear blue but not on a daily basis. I just try to make it subtle.

  97. jeannie says:

    I LOVE blues! Although sometimes I’m scared that I might end up looking like Mimi from the Drew Carey Show! =/

  98. Jessica Lynn says:

    I am actually in a current phase of wearing navy blue eyeshadow! I only use MAC eyeshadows, so this one would be a wonderful addition 🙂 I used to wear bright sparkly blue every single day when I first started wearing makeup in high school, and I still don’t regret it!

  99. Jessica Lynn says:

    retweeted! i’m xpectopatronum on twitter

  100. Cody says:

    When I was little, I LOVED wearing blue eyeshadow, but I haven’t really attempted it since I was about 12. I was pretty tempted by this and the other blue in the Love Lace collection… but funds are tight so I resisted! Yay self-control!

  101. Vanessa C. says:

    I used to wear it and now am wanting to try it again! I am tired of all my neutrals.

  102. NY says:

    Whenever I try to do a black smokey eye it ends up having a blue tint to it somehow so I guess I have worn blue! However, i’ve been wanting to try a steely blue look for a while now but haven’t found the right color in MAC yet. This Love Lace collection shade looks promising!

  103. Lydia says:

    This is pretty!

  104. Jenny says:

    in fact, i just wore blue eyeshadow today =)

    i had always been afraid of it, because my friend always looked kind of like a clown with it, but i realized it can look gorgeous with other colors!

    i wore it in the outer half/v of my eyes with gold in the inner and bronze in the crease =) not scary at all!

  105. izzy says:

    I have yet to find a blue eyeshadow that looks good on me! I am determined to find it, I just love how people look in blue~ *sigh*

  106. Kypris says:

    I have trouble with blues, but I think sometimes I can make them work. I love that electric green-blue on you!

  107. Natasha says:

    I love blue shadow! I wear it all the time. I think it’s easiest to wear with other colors instead of all blue.

  108. JM says:

    I love reading the comment’s everyone made in hope of winning MAC Suave Intentions Eyeshadow. Still, it’s beyond me what I should say to catch the eye of the “cat lady”-you all know who I’m talkin’ bout’!! : P

    I would love to introduce MAC Suave Intentions Eyeshadow to her fellow mates, conveniently located upstairs in my palette.

  109. Heather says:

    I love wearing blue in my crease with bright green in my inner eye just for fun. I end up looking like a Cirque de Soleil performer, so usually I just keep those bright colors to at home in front of the mirror :).

  110. Diana K. says:

    I think most blue shadows are okay. I tend to wear the darker blues if I wear them. But no more baby blue frosty eye shadows from the 90’s please.

  111. Niki says:

    Blue eyeshadow is amazingg… I LOVE IT. my favorite duo is the hip eyeshadow duo with the bright turqoisey blue and the navy blue. AMAZINGG with some plumage in the crease…great going out smokey look
    .-= Niki’s last blog post… I’ve been jammin out… so I’m going to share it with you all =-.

  112. Elisia says:

    I have olive toned skin. So, I usually go for blue when I feel like being playful with my makeup. This shade looks so good!

  113. Cecy says:

    I haven’t found the perfect blue eyeshadow, but I really need one!
    I wish I could afford mac, here in Chile is way too expensive…. (24 dollars each eye shadow, yea I know!) and this blue one looks quite pretty =)

  114. Jean berhow says:

    Blue eyeshadow has always worried me, but I’ve found that pairing it with a cat eye looks amazing

  115. Priscilla Chu says:

    I would only wear blue eyeshadow on top of my blue eyeliner. I put my blue eyeliner on the lower lashline. I’m not really one for BRIGHT colors on the upper lid. It’s a bit too intimidating for me to do. I’m a new makeup junkie (:

  116. Ana V says:

    I have never really worn blue eyeshadow but I have a FAB electric blue eyeliner from The Body Shop that I can see working well will softer shades of blue.

  117. Jessy says:

    hi Karen!

    i love blue eyeshadow, but it’s hard to make it not look out of control, so I brush over any electric blue shadows with urban decay’s half-baked and it makes it perfect for work!

  118. Stephie says:

    I LOVE blue eyeshadows. My FAV is this turquoise matte e/s from MUFE in #72 I believe.
    .-= Stephie’s last blog post… It’s a New Year =-.

  119. bomi says:

    i used to wear a really light blue frosty one in my inner corners but i stopped after getting a haircut.
    the look just didn’t suit me anymore.

  120. Jenny says:

    yes! i love using revlons matte navy blue shadow for a sultry look!

  121. barbara says:

    i like to pair my teal blue with gold to create a look i call “pace”…which i last wore to the magic versus pacers basketball game (my bf is a pacer’s fan)…otherwise, for my non-bold looks i prefer something silvery-blue and very cool toned…

  122. Katrina says:

    I love really pretty blue-green eyeshadows, and I enjoy wearing them when I go out at night….blending them together with really fun colors. Suave Intentions looks super pretty!

  123. Eve says:

    I like blue eyeshadow. I dont wear it much but I like it. I like blue eyeliner too.

  124. Rati says:

    I have never worn a blue eyeshadow but these days I am pretty obsessed with my Revlon’s blue eyeliner. Obsessed with blue these days
    .-= Rati’s last blog post… A Quick Glow Pack =-.

  125. Olivia says:

    I’m always a little hesitant about blue eyeshadow- I think some people really look spectacular in it though- I’m just too nervous and “safe” to buy a blue eyeshadow when I could get something like a warm, bronzy color that will look good no matter what!

  126. Fatima says:

    I love blue eyeshadow and i have a couple (Tilt and contrast to name a few) ,but its not one of my everyday colors.

  127. maureen says:

    i love blue eyeshadow! in fact, i wear blue more than any other color (which is why i need this one…)

  128. Christy Ordonez says:

    I am a lifelong lover of green and purple shadows in any shade. I only have exactly two in blue. A bright, almost teal shadow, and a shimmery mid-tone shadow. I almost never wear them, but I feel that there MUST be a blue out there that can work on my green eyes. If I can regularly rock out orange, yellow, red, fuschia, etc, why can I not find a decent blue? I’m hoping this might be the solution.

  129. Devi says:

    I’ve never tried blue shadows. I’m afraid it will go hopelessly wrong! I’ve just picked up a blue eyeliner though, so I’ll start with that.

  130. Ditte Karolussen says:

    I only wear blue eyeshadow as a liner 🙂

  131. diane says:

    I did wore blue eyeshadow a lot when I was younger, in highschool but I don’t wear it so much anymore, don’t know why, probably because it makes me feel like a teenage again… (which shouldn’t be bad…:P )

  132. jesse says:

    i was first inspired to try blue shadow out when i saw a photo of a model in NYLON wearing a shade that made her lids look like denim. it was wayyyy cool so i got myself to a mac counter and ended up with the color deep truth. not a dupe for what the girl was wearing but close. i don’t pull it out very often but it makes a really nice sapphire liner (used wet on an angle brush) and its nice to have as an alternative to black in a smokey eye. wow that was looooong. anyways this shade is HAWT and i’d love to win it!

  133. Eunice says:

    usually when i blue my eyes up, i tend to go with a bit of caution because it looks utterly dreadful if you overdo it. so i usually go for a pale blue in the inner corner, then some darker, marine blue onto the lid with a light hand. and black liner of course 🙂

  134. Nika says:

    Would love to try this out for a smokey eye look! I don’t wear blue eyeshadow much. I’m always in pinks or neutrals. But would LOVE to have this as my first MAC eyeshadow ever!
    P.S. Seeing all your reviews, pictures, and swatches of makeup makes me so happy <3

  135. Polly says:

    Hi everyone,
    Je suis une lectrice française qui apprécie beaucoup ton blog. Je tente ma chance en même temps que les autres, on ne sait jamais. Cette ombre à paupière est magnifique ! Je crois qu’elle serait parfaite pour souligner le marron miel de mes yeux.

  136. Jj says:

    i always loved blue eyeshadows, actually my first eyeshadow ever was a skyblue with silver shimmer in it… it opens up your eyes and looks really great on very fair skin!

  137. Sarah says:

    A couple years ago I bought a little Boots No. 9 eyeshadow trio with a light blue and a navy blue to practice wearing blue before I invested in “real” blue eyeshadow. I didn’t practice very much, still have the little trio and still have no “real” blue eyeshadow. I’d like to wear it, but it seems so hard to work up to it. I have blue-gray eyes and need to do more research on how to make it look good, not silly.

  138. Grace says:

    When I was younger blue was my goto color. But now I don’t really wear it too often, I tend to pick purples.

  139. aisha says:

    i am suuuppper excited for TARINA TARANTINO beauty line!!!! 😀 serouisly i cannot wait…

  140. Amber says:

    Sometimes I wear blue along my lash line…but this shade is so pretty I’d be tempted to wear it all over the lid and even up into the crease.

  141. Sandy says:

    I’ve been playing around with a Wet n Wild e/s trio of blues and having fun doing a smokey eye with them — much different than this MAC shade, though. Would love to add this to my blue collection. Thanks for the chance!

  142. NINA says:

    For some reason a dark blue eyeshadow ( think MAC Nehru) highlights my brown/green/im not sure what color it is eyes … so YES I do love blue eyeshadows! <3

  143. Toni says:

    I have worn blue eye shadow before and I like it. However, I have to be careful with how dark or bright it is. I wasn’t interested in any blue eye shadows until I saw the MAC Love Lace collection and I came close to getting both blue shadows, but got Hypnotizing instead. I would love to win this to add some color to my shadow collection!

  144. Shadowy lady says:

    I would love to win this colour as I’m a big blue fan. I have to wear blues at least once a week! I have an almost full MAC palette of just blues with only one free spot left and this eyeshadow fits the bill.

  145. happybadfish says:

    I love to wear blue with black and grey. I either do it in the creas with a dark lid, or I put it close to the lash line with a grey lid and dark crease.

  146. Jane says:

    If its a frosty blue..i dont wear it coz am a warm shade skin..but love the dark deep blues..real pretty for a smokey eye too.

  148. Caitríona says:

    I’m not a fan of blue blue eyeshadows because i think with my blue eyes it’s a bit much. I love, however, wearing blue-grey or blue-green eyeshadow because it brings out the gray and green in my eyes. Sweet!

  149. Jessie says:

    I am afraid of blue eyeshadows, hehe!

  150. Kymberlee says:

    I feel blue eyeshadows are best worn sparingly. I have worn them from time to time but they are definitely not something I wear daily or weekly.

  151. Nicole says:

    I used to be scared of blue eyeshadows! Well, I still kinda am…I only own one blue and it is really dark! I would love to have this one because it looks wearable!

  152. G says:

    Have a blue quad from Chanel & old 3 color quad from Chanel in blue – Would love to add to those.

  153. Sylvie says:

    I absolutely adore blue eyeshadows! My first ever eyeshadow(s ) was a blue palette from Shiseido (I still have them, dark jewel blue, frostly sky blue, silver and silver-blue cream base). It belonged to my mother but she gave it to me. About six months ago to a year ago, I was obsessed with finding the perfect vibrant jewel blue, so I got my hands on Blue Storm, Climate Blue, Blue Flame (from Cool Heat), Submarine, Electric Eel and Freshwater. None of them are quite what I’m looking for, but Freshwater is the closest and therefore the one I use the most. I think blue eyeshadow is my bane of existence, I love them but I’m never satisfied!

  154. YadiQ says:

    I LOVE BLUES !!!

    i have many but my favorite is the indigo from lancomes summer collection this past summer

  155. Lisa says:

    I have so many blue eyeshadows, but none this shade!

  156. Steffi says:

    I am usually no big fan of blue eyeshadows but Suave Intentions is so beautiful that it would be a shame to not have it 😉
    I love it because it is not too dark, just the right shade of blue, I like the lighter versions and the shimmer is just fantastic. For me Mac e/s with Veluxe Pearl finish are simply the best 🙂 I simply like how this is a lighter blue with a nearly silver shimmer 😀 I need to have it!

  157. Brianna says:

    I fear the blue eyeshadow. The image of MiMi from The Drew Carey show pops into my head and it makes me want hide under the covers until the scary monster goes away, BUT I’m down for the challenge, 2010 new year, new things.:)

  158. Liliana says:

    Oh man, I LOVE LOVE LOVE blue shades. Blue Absinthe is my FAVORITE. I wish I had back ups of it. I love blue in all its many shades. sigh.

  159. Carolina says:

    Blue eyeshadow’s smoking hot when applied good but I’ve got a bit of trouble putting it on the right places since I think since it’s so dark I’d only put it in the corner of my eye :-S
    Got some good inspiration from your FOTD with Urban Decays Binge eyeliner and shadow in Frigid…oh mama that was fab!

    Btw found a tutorial how to fix a shadows in thousand pieces at or (in swedish but thank lord for Google Translate :o)

  160. Natalie says:

    I think that with blue, it really depends on the shade. I like matte (or very subtly shimmered) dark blues/teals/navy’s, etc. I think that applied in moderation they can look very nice. My all time favorite blue is from YSL, the duo in 19, as the blue is slightly teal-ish. I haven’t really been a fan of really light blues (like baby blue) as they tend to look, and sorry in advance for the harsh words, cheap and unsophisticated. The reason I’m liking this one from Love Lace is because it’s muted and has a bit of gray in there. Anyhow, thanks for the opprotunity!

    And I twittered:

    I am obsessed with MAC blue shadows!

  162. kristen says:

    Blue shadows usually tend to go well with my pale as hell skin tone. I think blue shadow has gotten a bad rap in the past, but if it’s done correctly, it’s definitely a hot hue.

  163. Didi says:

  165. Amanda says:

    I’m an equal opportunity eyeshadow lover, so yeah, I have some blues! Navy ones make great liners, and it is always fun to have a selection to do a smokey blue eye with.

  166. Jennifer says:

    I’ve never worn blue — I’m pretty standard. But I’m starting to venture out a bit — I wore a more pinky tone yesterday!

    I’ve seen my friend wear a bright blue only to match a shirt and it was never really my type of thing but I’m starting to get this whole blending thing…I’d definately use it with other colors.

  167. Rovie says:

    I too have a love/hate relationship with blue eyeshadow because of my coloring (it’s similar to yours, Karen). There was one time I wore this matte dark blue eyeshadow and I looked like a zombie. 🙁 But I’ve had really good luck with blue eyeliners.

  168. amber says:

    I love blue shadows! I love blue-blacks, or steely blue greys also. I once rocked a really pretty blue/grey smokey eye…and yes I wore it to Walmart! My sis said “thats a lil dramatic for Walmart, dont you think?” I said never! I rocked those aisles in style, baby! 😉 Feel free to email me for pics. I love makeup, but don’t have a blog! *gasp* 😉

  169. Jennifer says:

    I wear blue shadow every now and then, but in extreme moderation!

  170. iben says:

    I have extremely light skin, since I live in Scandinavia and my family’s Siberian (They even told me in NARS that their lightest color foundation, “Siberia,” might be too dark for me!), so I feel pretty timid when it comes to blue eyeshadows. I also thought blue would make me look even paler but recently I did see some really beautiful looks on Temptalia that made me wanna give blue a chance.

  171. Jennifer says:

    I’ve never really tried blue eyeshadow but I love lining my waterline in blue.

  172. Veky says:

    I wasn’t into blue e/s before because I have light green eyes, but lately, like a year or so, I’ve find some pretty nice shades of blue among mineral and MAC pigments which I really love to wear. Plus, my boyfriend bought me Strike A Pose e/s which is really lovely! Never thought I would ever wear blue e/s, but, people change. So they say. 😀

  173. VERO says:

    I love blue eyeshadows, especially since they give a boost to my brown eyes. I’ve tried blues blended in to different shadees for work and it looks really professional and still trendy and youthful. I tested suave intentions and loved it but I decided not to buy it because I’m tryting to frugal so I really hope I win.

  174. Shannon Steele says:

    My mother is a gorgeous brunette with olive toned skin. She has always worn a neutral make up palette as it showcases her natural beauty. One of my favorite stories is about when she was dating my father. They were talking about the relationship getting more serious and one of his comments was that he would like her to wear more blue eyeshadow. Now mind you, the blues of circa 1971 were not the same blues that we are so accustomed to having access to now. You know the blue he wanted her to wear! That powdery leisure suit blue! EWWWWW!
    Me personally, I consider myself lucky to have all the greens to blend my blues with.

  175. Katie says:

    I have never tried blue, I guess I just have not found one that I liked.

  176. Jessica D. says:

    I like to have fun with my makeup from time to time, so I have a great shimmery blue pigment eyeshadow by Make Up For Ever that I wear to work to spice up some of the blah black and beige that I wear. Sometimes it’s fun to have the POP in my look come from my face instead of my clothes – plus it looks good next to my green eyes. 😉

  177. vnssa906 says:

    I’ve tried blue eyeshadow ONCE. It was this past summer, the night before my sister in laws huge birthday bash on a boat that circles NYC for a few hours. I bought an awesome strapless navy blue-ish mini dress, and wanted to match my eyeshadow with the dress. My sister and I were testing makeup on each other the night before, to perfect our looks 🙂 she gave me this Avon eye shadow stickers, where the eyeshadow is already placed on a sticker as a smokey eye… awesome idea, but it looked so weird on me!! Not sure if it was the color or the application… but i would LOVE to try some MAC blue! 🙂

  178. Shiny says:

    I’m opening up to blue shadows. Right now I have Deep Truth but hopefully I’ll expand my collection!

  179. Julia says:

    I actually wore blue eyeshadow on my wedding day! I wore what i think is called Blue Suede by LM, right in the center of my eye. it’s a very pale blue. the MA said it would help bring out my blue eye color. I paired this with a medium matte brown shade and Rose, a sparkly mauve/pink. if you use blue eyeshadow in the right way, it can look great!!!

  180. Nadine says:

    I only like blue eyeshadows with gold iridescence because I’m so yellow/peach in skintone. I can’t rock cool blues or gray blues at all.

  193. Petra says:

    I love blue eyeshadows, but i have to be careful with the tones i can pull off, and in what amount. For exc. navys really bring out the green in my eyes, but too much cool toned lighter blue hues will just clash with my rather warm complexion. 🙁
