5 Great Brown Eyeshadows

These are five brown eyeshadows that I really love — as requested by reader Sarah! ┬áThere are a ton of amazing brown eyeshadows (probably one of the easiest shades to do well, from my experience), and these are just five of many.

What’s your favorite brown eyeshadow?

Becca — The Stealthy Shangtung

Becca Shantung Eyeshadow ($24.00 for 0.03 oz.) is a beautiful warmed-up molten brown with bronze shimmer and golden sheen. It has subtle red undertones, and it’s such a gorgeous bronze shade. The texture is smooth, soft, and almost buttery, but without any powderiness. It almost feels like it melts onto the skin (but it’s not a cream, it is a powder).

What a great first shadow for me to try from Becca! However, the higher price point accompanied by the below average quantity has me a bit jarred. Really, 0.03 oz.? Most high-end brands at similar price points put at least 0.05 oz., which is nearly double.
