Spotlight On: MAC Deep Truth

Finish: Frost / True dark blue

Deep Truth is a dark blue shade that is matte in consistency with a small hint of glitter. It is beautiful on brown eyes and even blue eyes, because it is a darker shade. I like to use this one sparingly and in more striking areas of the eyes (crease and outer corner, for example). It is harder to blend than most other MAC eyeshadows, but with patience and persistence, eventually it blends out beautifully. I especially like the way Deep Truth looks with other purple shades.

  1. Hi-I just did look 6 only I used Plumage instead of the pigment which I don’t have & used blanc type instead of Gasso (don’t have that either). It came out almost as nice as yours. Except i am a lot older than you so have to make adjustments for not so smooth eyelids. I like it-just not used to using blues on brown eyes.

    1. That sounds beautiful! Plumage would definitely look great in the crease for that look. Glad to hear you’re experimenting! Blue eyeshadow is the best on brown eyes – pinks and purples too. 🙂

  2. I have this from the Lady Justice quad and was disappointed with the swatch alone, it turns grey on me. I’m now thinking of purchasing it in a pot just to see how it turns out. 🙁

  3. I did a look with this today using inspiration from your Look # 13 🙂

    I used:
    -MAC Soft Brown (crease)
    -MAC Golden Flurry (LE) (blend/brow)
    -MAC Deep Truth (outer v/outer third of lid)
    -MAC Gorgeous Gold (inner third of lid)
    -MAC Tilt (blend Deep Truth to middle third of lid)
    -MAC Juxt (middle of lid, blended into Gorgeous Gold and Deep Truth)


    -MAC Seasonal Appeal blush (LE)

    -MAC Ravishing (cremesheen)

    Thanks, Z! You’re lovely and I so appreciate your site. I’m excited to try new combos and get the best out of my e/s collection!

  4. Woah, I’m gonna try #4, but I don’t have Brown Script, gonna check my stash and see if I found something else that might works. 🙂
