I have dark hair and brown eyes and freckles and I find the MAC contrast is a perfect blue for the liner and corners. It gives that touch of “cool” to counteract my warm tones.

Nice combination of shimmers and mattes here! I often have a hard time finding a good blue eyeshadow that’s not too bright or too “glittery.” These are some nice mattes and shimmers. I find that with blue eyeshadow, the trick is too have a matte lid accessorized with shimmer, but not chunky glitter.

ROCK ON MARLENA!

I’m surprised to see Rated R on here. I was soooo excited when I got this a few years back- more for the acid green than the blue. I’m not arguing a bit that the shades are stunning, but I’ve been grossly disappointed with the staying power of Nars shadows- no matter how I apply, what brush I use, base or no base, I find myself having to refresh the color several times before I’ve even completed the look. Surely I’m not the only one???
