Top 10 Favorite Eyeshadows

I am first to admit that I am a neutral shadow FIEND.That's why for most (ok...ALL) of my choices of top 10 shadows, they are neutrals. Here is my video listing off my favorites and of course I couldn't stop at 10 so I have lots of honorable mentions too!



My Favorites!
Too Faced Silk Teddy- I've talk about this shade a million times both on this blog and in my videos. It's a pinky champagne with lots of eye brightening goodness!
NYX Champagne- As the name suggests, this is a champagne color and also very golden. It's very close to MAC Blonde's Gold Pigment, which is PRO.

MAC Shroom- This is my go to highlight shade for the inner corner and looks gorgeous on the lid too. It's a golden highlight shade.

MAC Grain- This is a peachy neutral shade with just a hint of shimmer. It's a great barely there color that still makes you look awake.

MAC Vex- This shade is very unique, it's a beige-y shade but has a pink duochrome.

Stila's Wheat- I know Stila's Kitten is a cult favorite but one of my favorites is Wheat. It's a golden color that's very...you guessed it, eye brightening.

Wet n Wild Nutty- This is one of my all time favorite taupes. I've raved about this shade a lot and still highly recommend it. It's amazing quality for the low price.

MAC Vanilla Pigment- If I have to recommend any MAC pigment, it's this one. It is a white gold and is gorgeous as a highlight or all over the lid.

MAC Mulch- This is one of my favorite crease/outer corner shades. It's a chocolate-y brown and gives really nice definition to my eyes.

NYX Black- As the name suggests it's just matte black. I use this shadow daily to set my eyeliner. You can also use it as eyeliner or to smoke out a look. If you need a matte black, $3 for this NYX one is a great price for something that will last you a long time.

My honorable mentions!
L'Oreal HIP Duo in Electrified (left shade)-I love this duo in general and I have to thank Nouveau Cheap for recommending it. The left champagne/pewter shade is my favorite.

Bare Minerals Celestine- Though it's a golden neutral shade, this color has a lot more unique dimension to it and also has some pink and taupe tones to it.

Glamour Doll Eyes' Bare Naked- Like Grain, this is a gorgeous barely there neutral. It's more golden than Grain but the concept is similar.

Physician's Formula Baked Sands Trio (top color)- Before I discovered MAC's shroom, I was in love with the highlight shade of this trio. I still use it and love it for inner corner and all over the lid.

Milani's Java Bean- This is another one of my favorite crease/outer corner shades. It has more purple tones than Mulch. I recommend the Milani single shadows over all because they're amazing quality. You can find them on cherry culture.
