Hey Ladies,

I was wondering if you guys could give me a list of your favorite neutral eye shadows for black women around C7 or darker? I recently purchased Saddle and I want a few other neutrals to add to it.

I'm interested in seeing some of the neutrals WOC used. I'll add to the list:

Woodwinked
Soft Brown (I use this all the time! Excellent for blending!)

I bought Soba and Texture today. Can't wait to add on more colors to my collection this weekend. The MAC artist recommended Soba as a highlighter color? What do you ladies use it for?

How do you find Samoa Silk? Does it appear more like an orange shade on your skin?

Soba, Era, Cork, Woodwinked, Satin Taupe, Shale, and Sumptuous Olive (hints at green but still pretty neutral).

Haven't played enough to tell you about placement really but Woodwinked or Era are almost always my lid colours so far.

NC50 for reference

(Non MAC rec's: Hawaiian Coffee and Brown from NYX)

I thought Ricepaper would be too light for a highlighter color for C7 or darker. Have you tried Soba or Saddle?

I love Somoa Silk. It does appear like an orange shade on my skin, but not as orange as Rule.

So I went to the Mac Pro store on Oak Street in Chicago and picked up a quad which included Bronze, Hepcat, Coppering and Amber Lights. I've been looking at Coppering for a while and I absolutely love it. It's a must have girls! Any experiences with Coppering?

I absolutely love brown script. I used it with a little amber light in my inner corner of the eye with a little Coppering and Bronze in the crease and it was so pretty. Brown Script is more reddish brown than red, so if you are looking for a neutral that is really brown, Brown Script wouldn't be a good choice.
