Please also state what your colour your eyes are.

Right now I'm loving MAC's greensmoke. Its a greenish, brown, grey colour....goes great with brown eyes I always use Urban Decay's primer potion as well.

I love the eyeshadow Ulta makes. Stardust, Cognac, and Mink I tend to use pretty often, for brown smokey eyes. I also use Sin City, Tempted, and Envy, but usually not together.

My eyes are blue hazel.

The label on my usual is so worn that the lettering isn't visible anymore. But it's a MAC solid powder, in a sort of muted eggplant-purplish color. I use it when I want a little hint of a smoky look, or just to give the illusion of less squinty eyes. My upper lids have fallen and I'm not into cosmetic surgery so makeup is the great fixer, for me.

I tend to use a lot of MUFE (star powders and eye shadows.) As for shades, I gravitate towards browns, but I don't use them exclusively.

Eye Color: Dark Brown (almost black) with gold flecks. Very pale N skin. Some lines are not light enough for me. I have hyper pigmentation on my lids so the yellow comes out more a cream because its sheer. The white is not a thick white but more towards the sheer side too when applied lightly.

Shadow: Figi Twist on lower lid

Pfloof! by MAC. (I think that's how you spell it.) It's a pale, pale pinky-white with a bit of frost (but not too much).

I call my eyes green; other people have called them blue.

Love the Ulta shadows, I wear stardust and safari for day, add molten at night for a smokey look.
My eyes are very dark green, pale skin, brunette hair.

I love Sephora dual shades. I have gray eyes and use the gray/silver dual and it seems to work really well. Also a dark emerald works too.

I'm a fair skinned redhead with blue eyes. My absolute favorite shadow is an Ulta shadow called Golden Olive. If they ever discontinue it, I'll be devastated!

I am a fair-skinned redhead with hazel eyes.

My favorite shadows are MAC's Pfloof all over my lids and in the lower corners; and then Satin Taupe on the lids and creases. Brings out the green in my eyes. I will also occasionally use MAC's Bronze on my upper lids. It is a shimmery coppery bronze that I get lots of compliments on. (Not sure if they still make that color, since mine is several years old).

Unfortunately, I have yet to find an ULTA shadow I like. They don't stay on long enough and make my eyes burn. I'll have to continue paying $14 per shadow at MAC.
