Help needed.... cooper/burgundy eyeshadows

1.jpg2.jpg
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

Check out Kat Von D's Shade Shifter eyeshadows- there's a beautiful purple that leans heavily burgundy and a multidimensional copper.

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

Oooooh, I do like that copper color, Devotion!  The other one may be a little too purple for what I'm looking for.  I have some similar colors already. Although maybe I need to go to the store and swatch it.   Thanks for the suggestions!

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

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

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

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!

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

The MUFE Diamond Burgundy is my favorite of the bunch. I'm glad you like it!

I haven't tried the Stila foil eye shadows, but they look really cool (esp the picture on the Sephora Stila page). I have heard mixed reviews as well, so that is something to think about. On the Sephora YouTube channel there's a video about the eyeshadows. The title is: Magnificent Metals Foil Finish Eye Shadow by Stila.

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

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

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

@SydBristow colourpop makes some beautiful burgundy shades! Drift, Paradox, Porter, Stereo, going steady and get out are all gorgeous!

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

Thanks @unfungirl! I actually have quite a collection now, should do some new swatches! 

 

Thanks for the CP recommendations!

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

You're welcome @SydBristow! Burgundy is my jam too Smiley Wink

 

edit: oops! I just realized your post was from 2014 😂😂😂

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

In 2014 it was much harder to find good burgundy eye shadows! We are lucky now to have some great choices. Smiley Happy 

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

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

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

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

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?

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

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

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

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

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

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.
