5 Rich Brown Eyeshadows to Savor

I think richness isn’t just a really dark shade–I think it has more to do with intensity, vibrancy, and how much depth a shade can have.  These shades look so luxe to me!

  1. NARS Surabaya — two rich browns–one more yellow-toned, one more red-toned
  2. Make Up For Ever #14 — dark brown with coppery-red undertones
  3. MAC Embark — deep, dark matte red-toned brown
  4. Inglot #409 — deep brown with a golden-bronze sheen
  5. Tarina Tarantino Dreamy — deep, dark chocolate brown with ruby and gold sparkle

What’s your favorite rich brown eyeshadow?

Inglot #422

Inglot Pearl Eyeshadows in Inglot #422, 409, 402, 421, 406 (Browns)

We continue exploring Inglot’s Pearl Eyeshadow ($4.50 to $7.00 each for 0.09 oz.) range by taking a look at five of the brown shades.  Inglot’s Pearl Eyeshadows have a very fine shimmer with a brighter, pearly sheen.   I had a good experience with these five eyeshadows–they were easy to work with, nicely pigmented, and had the soft, smooth textures I’ve come to expect from Inglot’s Pearl eyeshadows.  I really appreciate the consistency of Inglot’s eyeshadows, though, because even if you’re unsure of a color, at least you can anticipate the quality still being high and familiar.

  • 422 is a medium-dark chocolate brown with a pearl finish. It has a subtle red undertone.
  • 409 is a dark, bronzed chocolate brown with a pearl finish. This is a cooler-toned brown compared to #422.
  • 402 is a muted, taupe-ish brown with a pearl finish.
  • 421 is a medium-dark coppered brown with a pearl finish.
  • 406 is a golden bronze with a pearl finish, though it reads more metallic than pearl.
