My Eyeshadow Collection #3: Darker Browns

Hey guys!
Today I have the 3rd part of my eyeshadow collection for you, my darker browns :) Hope you enjoy it!

Essence Soft Matt - 03 Silky Smooth
This is a unfortunately discontinued matte chocolate brown that is pretty warm-toned. It has a nice texture and is quite pigmented, but not too much, so you always get the right amount of product.

MNY 602A
This eyeshadow was part of an LE, but I don't remember which, sorry. It's a cool-toned brown with some silver shimmer/frost. It's not too pigmented, but still nice for nude looks. It was even once named to be a dupe for Satin Taupe from MAC, but I don't know if that's true. 

Alverde Zauberwald LE - Magic Spirit
Magic Spirit is a greenish brown shimmer color, and quite pigmented. It was part of Alverde's Zauberwald LE, and I like it a lot, especially in fall.

Catrice Velvet Matt - 050 Sweet Mauve
Another discontinued color. It's purpley brown shade, and matte. It's nice to apply, but you have to be careful that it doesn't get patchy.

Rival de Loop Duo - Mocca Beige
I already showed you the lighter part of this duo here *click*, and now here is the darker side. It's a shimmery neutral-toned brown, not too pigmented but still nice.

Essence Into The Wild LE Duo - 01 Mumbamumba
Today I'm showing you the brown part of this duo. It's a frosted cool-toned brown with some silver hints in it. It's okay to apply, not perfect, but not bad either.

Well, that's it about this part of my collection :)
Until next time,
xoxo, Misch


  1. Nice e/s. I don't think we had Essence here when those soft matte eyeshadows were available. I'm tempted by the new matte e/s in stores. Do you have any of them?

  2. @marox: thanks :) no, I didn't try them out, but I'll have a look at them soon :)

  3. I have the Essence duo and the matt from Catrice. The one from Alverde looks very nice too :-)

  4. @Salander: that's really cool :) we seem to like the same shades ;)
