The categories are getting harder to figure out at this point! It’s easy to tell what’s blue or purple, but distinguishing brown from bronze is difficult! Here’s my best try.
I have three bronze eyeshadows. The Sleek Original Palette contains a gorgeous, sparkling bronze. It’s super smooth and almost creamy – very pigmented. The picture I took doesn’t quite capture the amount of sparkle it has – it’s very pretty.
Urban Decay Deeper, from the 15th Anniversary Palette, is a deep brown-based bronze. The finish is really interesting; it’s a shimmer, but it’s a low-shimmer, sort of velvety finish. It is very pigmented and applies smoothly.
Urban Decay Smog, from the Naked Palette, is my all-time favorite eyeshadow. It’s somewhat subtle but really beautiful on my skintone. It applies really smoothly, and is pigmented – the texture is just perfect. I can’t recommend this shade enough!
I have two copper eyeshadows of varying intensities.
First, there is a highly pigmented, vivid copper in the Sleek Original Palette. It applies smoothly. This is a really lovely shade, and although I haven’t worn it much, I plan to wear it more in the future!
Second, the eyelid shade from the Wet n Wild Dancing in the Clouds Trio is a pale copper. Although it looks pale next to the Sleek copper shade, it’s not for lack of pigmentation – it’s just a paler shade. This eyeshadow also has a great texture.
Do you have a favorite bronze or copper eyeshadow?
