Here's a selection of a few of my antique gold brown shades. Apologies about the crappy lighting in this photo.
Now, here they are all swatched side by side. Fortunately, for the swatches, where colour really matters, the lighting is much better. Yay! There were more, of course, but I thought that it may be best to keep the swatches to colours I felt were more similar to each other.
We have here:
1. MAC Patina
2. Stila Wheat
3. Superdrug MUA Eyeshadow Trio in Innocence (Middle colour)
4. Mimididi Eyeshadow 05
5. Stila Sparkle
6. Stila Golightly
MAC Patina needs no introduction. It's a great gorgeous neutral antique gold brown, and has a slight pink shift to it that makes it really pretty. The pink shift is slight, and doesn't really show up in my swatch, but it's there.
Stila Wheat is a light, frosty golden brown with shimmer. This is a great neutral barely-there lid colour for most skintones.
I've actually blogged about the Superdrug MUA Eyeshadow Trio in Innocence before, and I liked the eyeshadow. I did note in my previous post that it was similar to Patina and Wheat, so it's great to have it swatched here.
Mimididi Eyeshadow 05 has also been reviewed on my blog before. I liked it then, and I still like it now. It has a very frosty finish,
Stila Sparkle is in the same vein as Steila Wheat, but a bit darker and more brown.
Stila Golightly is similar in finish to Stila Sparkle and Stila Wheat, but it's the darkest of all the shades. It's also leaning a little bit more bronze in colour.
There you are, a swatch of some of my favourite gold brown shades. I should have swatched Urban Decay's Ruthless too, but I forgot about it until after the photos (oops). Just goes to show, you can find great colours at any price point!
