MAC Bleuluxe Veluxe Pearlfusion Shadow Review, Pictures, Swatches

Hello darlings!
I have to apologize for my absence. I've been really busy and kind of in a funk so I decided to take a little break from blogging -- I think it happens to all of us from time to time :)
I'm back with this beautiful eyeshadow palette from MAC. While my mom was in NYC she bought this for me as a little gift. She's so thoughtful -- and knows exactly what makes me happy! Eyeshadow!
"It’s eye shadow innovation like you’ve never seen before. A versatile powder that brings out the pigment’s pure and true color. The result is a glamorous, creamy and lightweight hybrid offering two distinctive effects: applied wet for a super saturation of color that glistens with metallic brilliance, or dry for sheer coverage with a soft, sparkling finish."
Bleuluxe #1 -- sparkly off white
Bleuluxe #2 -- sparkly cool toned grey-blue
Bleuluxe #3 -- navy with two toned shimmer
Bleuluxe #4 -- blackened navy blue with pearl
Bleuluxe #5 -- neutral black with blue microshimmer

In the swatches below I applied the shadows dry and they are moderately sheer. In the description provided by MAC, that's how these shadows are designed to perform. When applied to the eye dry I prefer layering the sparkly shades over other eyeshadows. The two darker shades were very soft, almost to a fault. They were a bit too crumbly, but with some extra effort I was able to make them work.

When applied wet they are fully opaque, as seen below (Bleuluxe #1-3). Sorry for the incomplete look... I just wanted to show what the eyeshadows look like wet, but wasn't really in the mood to put together full-on drag makeup. I hope you understand :)

When used wet or dry there was a lot of fallout. I think these would be great for a glamorous night out, but not something I would wear everyday.
Although they are limited edition, you should still be able to pick this up if you're interested!
Have you tried any of the Veluxe Pearlfusion Shadows?
Much love,



  1. The middle colour swatches so nicely! I think these are pretty in theory but I wouldn't pick them up since they sound like they're hard to work with :(

  2. the one in the middle is to die for ! omg i love it so so much !!!


  3. What the...fallout even when used wet? :( Sounds troublesome, but colour #2 looks so gorgeous ;-;

    Actually, the whole palette/shade combination looks gorgeous (like ombre!)

    1. Crazy huh! They are lovely colors... just need some extra work!

  4. this looks SO gorgeous! This made me realize I don't have any blue eyeshadows, the swatches look lovely!

    1. These are my only blue eyeshadows... well except for MAC Contrast!

  5. The shades look lovely :) I barely have any blue eyeshadow in my collection, but I'll probably pass on this one. If it was a little more low maintenance I would probably run and get it, but I usually have to run out of the door..so it'd be a lot easier if my eyeshadows were beautifully pigmented already! Still, they are gorgeous colors... now I want blue eyeshadow XD
