Is There A Perfect Brown Eyeshadow?

After reading all about the new Ungaro collection for some strange reason there was only 1 color from it that I was really, truly craving. The brown eyeshadow.

Seriously. And, No, I am NOT off my rocker.

Something about the way Sharon Dowsett, the Key Makeup Artist for the collection, described creating the brown made me want to try it out.
"Like Monet’s Water Lilies, it looks better the farther back you stand. When I visited his masterpiece at l’Orangerie, I was struck by how many colours he’d used to create brown, without actually using brown. There’s not a lot of makeup but a lot of thought’s gone into it.”

It might look like just another brown, but trust me, if you've tried you already know. This is an incredibly versatile muted brown. I'm finding myself reaching for it over and over.

Pick one up while you can!

  1. Ooh,I have been looking for a new one to replace my perfect brown - Bobbi Brown's Sable. It has been my staple for so long, but my Bobbi's basics trio is all finished. Sable was the last to go - pan, pan, pan! Wish I could refill, but I think I need to try this one out now.

  2. I have this color and it is indeed a perfect brown. You're not off your least not about this eyeshadow. ;)
    Seriously, it's an amazing brown.

  3. I'm game. I've longed for a replacement of Cliniques "Perfect Nude" for years now. Why you get rid of a color with that name is beyond me.

  4. i love my Bobbi Brown Creme eye shadow in ??. I'm not sure what the color is, but it is the darkest brown with gold in it. I also love Tiger's Eye by Bare Escentuals and Mac's Mulch. I have to have a really dark brown with shimmer in it--no mattes!! They make my eyes look dead.
