With that in mind, I scoured their extensive collection to find some new colors to diversify my collection. Taupe is probably my favorite eye color ever, so I put "taupe" in the search box and bought almost every single color. I also threw in some other neutrals that caught my eye, and a few of the dupes from the Naked Palette collection.
The colors I got are: Sierra, Loaded, Terra, Eu-Taupe-ia, Tailfeather, Aztec, Bareback, Graceful, Earth, Glory, Lurid, Taupetastic, Idolize, Rizzo, Nudge Nudge and Mink. Phew. Went a little nuts, didn't I? Anyways, swatches:
Several of these colors are dupes for mainstream brands. Loaded is a dupe for Urban Decay Toasted, Terra is Bobbi Brown Hotstone, Bareback is Urban Decay Naked, Aztec is Bobbi Brown Mica, Lurid is MAC Moth Brown, Idolize is MAC Idol Eyes and Mink is MAC Satin Taupe.
Overall, I have absolutely loved these shadows. Most have a gorgeous shine, are pigmented, smooth, and have a lot of depth and dimension. I look forward to putting them on everyday, and I have yet to find a bad combination. I like all of them, but my favorite is probably is the Eu-Taupe-ia, a matte color that looks so sophisticated and smokey. It is very versatile and wearable day or night. I also really love Sierra, Tailfeather, Idolize and Mink. Bareback is the best transition color for the crease I have found yet. I doesn't look super exciting, but it really takes your look to another level when you blend out a darker color with it.
I also have to comment on this company's excellent customer service. They ship incredibly fast, and when I placed my order, I realized that it would arrive before I was back in town from vacation. I also forgot to add my free shadows, so I sent a message to the company. I got a quick response saying they would delay the shipping, and add my shadows. It was totally hassel free.
This is definitely not the last you will be seeing from Silk Naturals. I have been building a wishlist, and it's only a matter of time before I place another order!
