Make Up For Ever Smoky Palette Swatches

As you know from my prior post, Make Up For Ever is introducing a limited edition Smoky Palette that will be available at Sephora starting in August.

Don’t worry August is a short time away but if you can’t wait until than here’s a few swatches to get you excited until my upcoming review and the release of the palette later this Summer.


The palette features eight shades of Make Up For Ever Eyeshadow in the following shades:

  • 04 (matte black)
  • 79 (deep plum shimmer)
  • 81 (metallic navy blue)
  • 80 (iridescent peacock green)
  • 122 (metallic cooper)
  • 127 (metallic taupe)
  • 126 (iridescent yellow beige)
  • 07 (white shimmer)

What do you think?

It reminds me of the Kat Von D True Romance Eyeshadow Palettes a little bit!

Review upcoming soon!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Totally excited for your review, Muse! The word “Smoky” just draws me in like a moth to flame. Love the taupe, blue, green, and purple. Not a huge fan of Kat Von D’s line, so I hope this palette is better! Can you let us know in your review whether the palette is cardboard or plastic? Thanks =)

    • the Muse

      hey dovey ;-D it’s actually plastic hun! more coming up soon! :D!

  • Andi

    the 4 darker colors in the second half of the swatches reminds me of the Urban Decay Black Palette.

  • Misato-san

    I don’t like it I have to admit… but I’m curious about the other stuff in the collection ^^
    (my real dream about MUFE is… new aqua creams! I love love love them, I’m not a fan of cream products but I love Aqua creams…)

  • Erika

    I love these, with the exception of the copper (so orange) and the black, which isn’t as deep/dark as I had hoped.

    Anyone know how it compares to MAC Carbon?

  • Soo

    the bottom four colors made me think of Urban Decay’s Black Palette!

  • Sarah

    How many ounces are in each pan? Regardless, that bottom picture is YELLING my name! πŸ™‚ I loves me some MUFE. πŸ™‚ I can’t wait to see what big set they put out this holiday season.

    • the Muse

      um not sure sarah sorry…i don’t have it in front of me at the moment ;-D I’m looking forward to the holiday too! ;D

  • kali

    How on earth did you get this?! I’ve been stalking the site and stores and can’t find it anywhere. =[

  • Mara

    Was this palette ever released at Sephora? Every time I checked on it, it wasn’t in stock. I signed up for e-mail notification but never got one to let me know it’s available, and when I tried to check on the item again at Sephora’s web site, it’s gone! Do you have a contact with MUFE PR Dept. to let us know what’s up? Will they ever sell this palette in the U.S.?

    • the Muse

      mara apparently not. I’ll contact MUFE to see what I find out πŸ™‚

      • Mara

        Thanks, Muse. I’m looking forward to hearing from you about what they’ll say. Keeping my fingers crossed as I think this is a fantastic buy.

        This is an email I received from Sephora on Oct. 27th:

        Dear MAKE UP FOR EVER fan,

        Like you, we were dying to try MAKE UP FOR EVER’s new Smoky Palette. Unfortunately, the brand won’t be launching the product in the United States. We’d like to make it up to you with a free deluxe sample of MAKE UP FOR EVER’s Smoky Lash Mascara, a shortcut to densely lush lashes. Enter code SMOKY with your next online order to redeem.* We also invite you to explore MAKE UP FOR EVER’s latest collectionsβ€”we know you’ll find something just as smoky and dramatic.

        Sephora Customer Service

        Sorry, ladies!

        • Pappetee

          Hi Muse, thanks for the lovely swatches! I was looking forward to purchasing this palette, waiting patiently for a good few months. Unfortunately, I received the same apology letter from Sephora, saying they wouldn’t sell the MUFE Smoky Palette in the US.

          • the Muse

            Hey Pappetee I’m so sorry! le sigh! I sure do wish they did have a shortage on the palette as it was truly lovely!

        • Mara

          Sarah, thanks for letting us know. I’m disappointed we’re not going to get this palette in the U.S., it looked like a steal and would’ve been my first MUFE purchase. I guess it’s time to look for a makeup swap partner from Canada…
