5 Gorgeous Matte Brown Eyeshadows

5 Gorgeous Matte Brown Eyeshadows

There are SO many brown eyeshadows on the market! I know that sometimes it can be a “boring” category, but browns can be incredibly versatile and even though I love wickedly bright hues, I have a major soft spot for browns and beiges and the like.

  1. Inglot #360 — just slightly gray-tinted medium-dark brown
  2. Make Up For Ever #162 — rich burgundy-toned brown
  3. MAC Swiss Chocolate — warm, chocolaty brown
  4. Bare Escentuals Foreshadow — dark brown with red-burgundy undertones
  5. Inglot #329 — dark, barely warmed over, chocolate brown

What’s your favorite matte brown eyeshadow? What do you pair with it?

5 Beautiful Cool-Toned Brown Eyeshadows

Cool-toned browns tend to lean just a little gray, but not gray enough to become taupe.

What’s your favorite cool-toned brown eyeshadow?

Inglot Matte Eyeshadow Palette #3

This next look at Inglot’s Matte Eyeshadows ($4.50 to $7.00 each for 0.09 oz.) is all about some neutrals–these were cooler browns and slightly odd shades that seemed to belong more to neutrals than a particular color.

  • 329 is a chocolate brown with a matte finish. It’s not warm, more of a neutral brown.
  • 378 is a dark, cool-toned brown with a hint of burgundy. It has a matte finish.
  • 326 is a dark, cool-toned brown with an even subtler hint of burgundy than #378. It also has a matte finish. Both #378 and #326 are extremely similar, and it is hard to distinguish which is which.
  • 363 is a taupe brown with a matte finish.
  • 358 is a subdued mauve-gray with a matte finish. This just seemed so neutral when I was arranging the palettes, but it swatches rather purple.
  • 344 is a pink-plum brown with a matte finish. ┬áIt’s totally the definition of a neutral, though – soft, natural.

Overall, these are true to Inglot’s matte formula and are easy to work with. I had a touch of sheerness with #378, but the other four had nice color payoffs and smooth applications.
