meet Royale-
a limited edition MAC eyeshadow that's been out for a few months already. Its well pigmented and gorgeous. Though its hard to capture the shade on camera, the color is described as "clean violet", having violet tones in the blue (more apparent against the sky blue background). Blue eyeshadow can be tricky to pull off for a skin tone and eye color like mine, but with the violet tones, matte finish, and the deep color, it is quite easy to wear without looking clownish. I think its a fun color (yet sophisticated) and a departure from the normal nudes and neutrals.


  1. I really wish I can pull off blue eye shadows.
    I need to experiment away from neutrals and nudes.
    This shade looks so pretty on your eyes!
