3.jpgOK FELLOW EYESHADOW JUNKIES!

 

I've been seeing a lot of pictures of fall eyeshadow colors using copper and burgundy. I like shimmery colors and want to create a fun look. I already have quite a few palettes and none really have the colors I want.  I am looking at the Laura Mercier Terracotta baked eyeshadow. I also saw some good options with Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics. Any advice??? Any other great Fall eyeshadow looks y'all have seen lately???

 

Thanks Smiley Happy

Re: Help needed.... cooper/burgundy eyeshadows

Would love to hear some updates to see what great burgundy shadows people have discovered. Smiley Happy

Re: Help needed.... cooper/burgundy eyeshadows

OK just found 2  swatches I liked, not even sure if these colors are currently sold. (Last 2 on the image)

 

Inglot Pearl 452 (i like 423 too; somewhere exactly in the middle would be perfect)

 

Mac Heritage Rouge

I'm loving MAC Heritage! Smiley Very Happy 

Re: Help needed.... cooper/burgundy eyeshadows

ok, liking mac cranberry.  I can't even describe the color I want.  I want like a deep brown/red/purple haha.  But not too much of any of those colors.  I'm going to look up some swatches on the cranberry.  Pigalle looks possibly a little too red for me.  Ugh, i don't know.

Re: Help needed.... cooper/burgundy eyeshadows

I have been looking for a deep color like that as well. but like...more red. but not enough to look completely red so it's got to be a little brown/purple too. haha I have not found it yet I actually bought MAC cranberry hoping it was it, and sadly it's a little too pinky/red when I put it on! Why is finding the perfect wine shade so difficult! lolSmiley Happy

Re: Help needed.... cooper/burgundy eyeshadows

My favorite that I've seen has been Stila's new metallic foil eyeshadow. The formula is so innovative and the color payoff is pretty unbeatable. I forget the name of the shade, but it's a gorgeous wine very similar to the second pic you posted.

I should also mention I have Stila Pigalle and Twig shadows on order, which look promising. Smiley Happy

Re: Help needed.... cooper/burgundy eyeshadows

oH! I have those, too. Pigalle is a really good cranberry color, and twig is much more brown.

Eeeek! Now I'm excited about the cranberry one!! Smiley Happy 

 

I suspect Twig is like the Bobbi Brown Cognac 13 I swatched today, while it looked promising it swatched brown.

Wow - that looks super beautiful and perfect for winter/fall. Smiley Happy Gorgeous! 

Re: Help needed.... cooper/burgundy eyeshadows

My problem is I don't want something too purple.  I still have yet to find the perfect burgundy shade i have in my head

Re: Help needed.... cooper/burgundy eyeshadows

so are you looking for more of a deep brownish-red, rather than a deep purple-red?

 

Have you looked at Mac Cranberry?

Love that color! I just got it two weeks ago after coveting it for several months. 

Re: Help needed.... cooper/burgundy eyeshadows

I feel the same way! I was just looking up "rust" - that had some possible leads.

Estee Lauder pure colour eye shadow duo in Raisins! 

Love this burgandy color!

I also really like Urban Decay's eyeshadow single in Last Call.

Re: Help needed.... cooper/burgundy eyeshadows

Ooooooooo, Last Call! I looked up swatches, sweeet!! Smiley Happy Thanks vanillammm!!

Re: Help needed.... cooper/burgundy eyeshadows

I am on the hunt for a good burgundy shadow too...today I swatched:

 

Bobbi Brown Cognac 13 (seemed to come out brown)

Bare Minerals READY The 15 Minutes duo (niiiicce!)

NARS Blade Runner (a burgundy paired with a striking dark green)

 

I think the Blade Runner one came out a bit more rusty which is fine. Really liked the Bare Minerals. Am hoping for a shimmer too. Then I saw NARS Surabaya when looking at the online duos - does anyone have any of these to swatch, or other wines/burgundys etc.? I do have Lorac Garnet but it's not quite what I have in mind on this particular quest. Smiley Happy

 

THANKS!!

 

Re: Help needed.... cooper/burgundy eyeshadows

Pretty sure I have a few shades similar to these from Inglot.

Those eyeshadow colors are so pretty! Smiley Happy

 

I have a few suggestions (in no particular order):

  • Make Up Forever Diamond Shadow in Diamond burgundy 311 - burnish mauve with copper shimmer.
  • Laura Mercier Baked Eye Color in Terracotta (vibrant warm copper) and Aubergine.
  • Stila Magnificent Metals Foil Finish Eye Shadow in Comex Copper (brownish copper sheen) and Metallic Merlot (deep red wine sheen) .
  • Make Up Forever Aqua Cream in Plum 17 - burgundy plum with shimmer

oooh, i really like that MUFE Diamond Burgundy! Might have to try.

 

I am digging all the different swatches I have seen of the Laura Mercier Terracotta.  Its in my basket right now.  

 

I checked out the Stila ones. I've heard mixed reviews on the foil finish.  Have you tried? Do you like?

 

I'm scared of cream shadow for some reason!
