Project Swatch #26: Brown and Neutral Eyeshadow Swatches, Comparisons

It’s been a while since my last Project Swatch post! It’s really difficult for me to categorize my last few eyeshadows; they’re sort of all neutral-y and brown-y.  For today’s post, I have two sets of eyeshadows for you.  They’re sorted by color family – but I’m not sure what to call each color family.

 First up, the bronzy brown-ish darker neutrals.  Darkhorse and Hustle are from the Urban Decay Naked Palette; MIA is from the Urban Decay 15th Anniversary Palette, and Truffle is from the Smashbox Softbox Palette. (All my high end eyeshadow is from palettes – it’s just much better value!).

All four of these have exceptional texture and color payoff – they are soft, smooth, and buttery. Highly recommended!

 Next up, we have two sort of warm rosy colors, and two champagne-colored glitterbombs.

The middle shade from the Wet n Wild trio Sweet as candy is a surprising almost-dupe for Urban Decay Toasted (from the Naked Palette).  Both are great quality – the Urban Decay one is softer, but the Wet n Wild is also smooth and has great payoff. If you love Toasted, consider picking up Sweet as Candy; for $3, it’s definitely worth it!

Urban Decay’s Sidecar (Naked Palette) and Midnight Rodeo (15th Anniversary Palette) are both excellent quality shadows, though due to the glitter in them, they have tons of fallout. I recommend using a sticky base with these, and all glitter eyeshadows.

Do any of these shadows look like something you would wear?
