My Favourite Eyeshadows - Swatches


Today I uploaded a very requested video - my top 10 eyeshadows.


I figured I should do a blog post with some swatches of the eyeshadows that I mentioned so that you get a better idea of what the colours look like when applied on the skin.

Without further ado - here are the swatches:


From left to right:

Le Metier De Beaute - Corinthian
MAC - Satin Taupe
NARS - Nepal


From left to right:

MAC - Mulch
MAC - Soft Brown


From left to right:

NARS - Demon Lover (usually comes in a Duo, this is the darker shade)
MAC - Blanc Type
Chanel - Taupe Grise


From left to right:

Bare Minerals - Nude Beach
Bobbi Brown - Hot Stone
MAC - Style Snob

It shouldn't come as a shocker that I am a big fan of neutrals. There are a few more shades from MAC that I also love and are worth an honourable mention (MAC Sketch, Brulee, Bronze, Wedge and Swiss Chocolate) but I had to draw the line somewhere. I might do an update on this a few months or a year down the line and see what changed. I am a sucker for bronzy or taupe shades :)

  5. I want to purchase Le Metier de Beaute "Corinthian", but am not sure if it lives up to the hype? What are your thoughts? Do I take the plunge? I dont want it to be similar to anything I have, and I know it resembles MAC "satin taupe". Are you glad you got it?
    Thanks!

  6. I am wanting to get Le Metier de Beaute "Corinthian" and am not sure if I should take the plunge and get it? I know it resembles MAC "satin taupe", is it worth the hype? Are you glad you got it? I really want it, but dont want to get it if it resembles or is like another "taupe" eyeshadow. What are your thoughts?
    Thanks!!

  10. Can most definitely tell you're a neutrals girl! If you had to choose one bright colour, what would it be? There's got to be a purple or something you love?!x

  13. I just bought Corinthian from Dustin at Bergdorf. I looked everywhere online first and couldn't even find it listed, but Dustin said that it sometimes takes as long as 3 months for products to show up online after he gets it in store. Thanks for the recomendation, I can't wait to get my hands on it!!
