Brown Eyecolor - null
(FYI: we need to make sure we leave the exact color we're reviewing since there are lots of different colors on most of the pages (BE you guys should add a field for the color in the review section) - the review doesn't just post to the color you bought; it posts to the page the color is on which almost always has a variety of other colors as well so if you don't identify the color you're reviewing we'll be confused and not know)
I bought the Wearable Brown Medium and the Wearable Brown Dark and love them both (and will be purchasing the Brown Light because I love browns and need all of the shades!)
The brown medium can be lightly applied for a medium shade or more heavily applied to reach a slightly darker shade. It glides on gracefully and it's fabulous.
The brown dark is a great dark and is fantastic to use as a liner as well - use it dry for a soft liner and use it wet for a more bold line (using it wet it's just like a regular liner). This is my primary intention for the brown dark because it is def dark and I don't like too much dark on my eyelid itself but it's the perfect color to use if you do like dark colors on your eyes and it's amazing as a liner (as a crease color too).
If you're into browns def get the medium and the dark brown - and I'd say get the light brown too even though I haven't tried it yet. I have complete faith in it due to my experience with the other two shades and it will be one of my next purchases.
I love this shadow it is the perfect color and a little goes a long way. It's a mixture of browns with a little golden shimmer. Enhances brown eyes to the max! Very beautiful!
I wanted a taupe-like color that worked well with fair skin tones. It's beautiful and understated, and the shimmer is not overwhelming. For winter, it's great because you can just apply a light 'wash' of color over the whole eyelid, and I didn't even have to worry about 'staying in the lines' because it just fills in perfectly. For summer, I suspect it will go perfectly with tanner skin. Overall, I highly recommend this shade if you are searching for a versatile taupe.
HARMONY - perfect neutral med-dark matte taupe
I recently purchased HARMONY looking for a darker taupe and I have found it! I have medium reddish brown hair, medium brown eyes, a fairish/medium Irish skintone with pink undertone. Harmony is the perfect neutral medium-dark taupe matte shade that is my daily go-to eyelid & crease shade when I'm wearing red tops & sweaters. In fact, I purchased it specifically to wear with red. But it works great with brown, black, green, blue, turquoise, plum and everything else too, I just happen to usually reach for Sure Thing when wearing other colors. I use it dry, just a light, even coat with either a stiffer crease eyeshadow brush or a sponge applicator wand over the entire lid and crease to give a smokier, defined eye without being too dark (I'm not into scary Goth dark). Brown eyes love taupe!! I also use it dry with a sponge applicator wand along the lower lash line as a liner and the color is soft & perfect, again without being too dark. I love this shade and will keep re-ordering as long as they offer it.
Note: as with ALL of the BE eyeshadows, you need to use a light, neutral light shadow as a primer over your entire eye area first. NEVER use BE eyeshadows directly on the skin, it ends up very splotchy. I have used Estee Lauder Sandbar Beige Matte for this purpose for years and highly recommend it.
Heaven in an Eyeshadow
Grace is a heaven in a container! I love the wear a light layer of Grace for everyday/work day. I have light to med skin-tone. On my skin it likes like a creamy golden tan. I love to pair it with cultural pearl (inner eye) Grace (center lid) & Queen Tiffany (outer/ crease) (browns)or heart & devotion (purples) for a more finished dramatic look. Grace bends will & wears well over the time. I have had nothing but complements on it & everyone I know I have using this color! My Tip: When In doubt wear GRACE!!!
This eye shadow is great as far as if you want rich, vibrant colors and light weight and crease resistant BUT IT IS VERY MESSY. I have to drape a tissue below my lower lashes because the color will fall on my foundation and then smear. I'm a little disappointed.
My favorite eyecolor!
I have had this eyecolor for about 2 years now, It has lasted me quite some time because you only need a little! I use it as an eyeliner, or a shadow, to create natural looks, or if going out a smokey look with browns. Recently I combined this with captivate as my inner lid color, and i mixed harmony with healthy radiance, and it made a beautiful brown, for my crease and outer lid. It have in a grand collection, so I am so happy to see that it is sold individually as well!
The perfect nude shade
Its slightly brown and slightly warm pink. I can wear it alone for a subtle shade or paired with a darker pink or brown for something more dramatic. This is a very versatile shade.
Clay - the wonder shadow
When I first tried Clay, I really didn't have much luck with it and it sat in my drawer for over a year until, on a whim one day, I decided to give it another try. I AM SO GLAD I DID! This time, I started with Bare Minerals primer (the original, sheer "nude" primer) and I used an eye shadow brush with slightly stiffer and more densely packed bristles.
I think it was both of those changes, but particularly using that specific brush, that led to my falling in love with Clay -- as another reviewer mentioned, the color seems to become more luminous with each brush stroke. A stiffer brush with natural hair (as opposed to the softer-bristled synthetics) is better for this one, because Clay needs to be "buffed" into the skin in order to truly appreciate it, and the softer brush I was using last year wasn't doing that.
I know Clay is listed with the brown shadows, but on me it's a light, very neutral-toned dove gray. The color is soft to start with but builds easily to get a striking, opaque look if you want something more noticeable. Absolutely gorgeous and would flatter many skin tones. Don't hesitate to pick this one up :)
This is a very pretty Neutral Glimmer that almost any age can wear and is a favorite I have used for many years! Great for every day or dressing up.
