thanks parita. :)) typographic is fab btw for black. embark, humid, shadowy lady, amberlights, to name a few
U are a sweetheart Pari. I know you are my co nc 42 from imbb. Btw I tried face and body foundation from Mac in shade C5. Suits perfect to nc 42.
good to know..ill def get a sample of it 🙂
Holy Cow. This is amazing. Awesome job Rati di 🙂
thanks rashmita. all the deeper tones would work . May be just ask the shade names for me and I’d be able to help better.. 😐
thanks harman. hope you got your pink eyeshadow swatches. 🙂

OMG!! Awesome compilation Rati 🙂 I am falling in love with amberlights, bronze, antiqued and twinks. I HAVE to pick up one of these. I wanna start practising with single eye shadow first, would that be a good idea? Which one shall I pick in that case?
guess pick up expresso or twinks ..actually twinks would be a special one. 🙂
I feel like I died and went straight to heaven!!! brilliant post!!
rati di i will adore and respect you for my lifetime for your passion and hard work! Even mac wouldnt have such an elaborate guide book on their eye shadows! I fell for all the pinks and browns. I am getting twinks and wood winked right away as i know they are un paralleled! Will try to look for inglot dupes for the pinks! i guess a whole pack of imbb reader husbands are going to write mails to you reg the sudden and unprecendented shopping modes that their wives have gotten into!!!!!!!

Seriously thanx a lot…. Gonna refer these for life….
Its an amazing and extensive list, painstakingly made, lovingly enriched 🙂 Its gonna help many, as sometimes MUA and sometimes I am clueless.. The other day i asked MUA in Dubai, as what shade according to you will suit, so she was like, “that’s for you to decide”! No doubt, i will decide, but its confusing many-a-times seeing so many shades.. This guide is gonna help me.. 🙂
Whoa whoa…I think I can rock about 15-20 of these shades max, but I can drool over all of them!
This is just amazing *pompom* …. m getting married next month and i was going crazy with what to buy n not stuff..Thanks Rati…u made my day by posting this article….i regularly read your blog and it is extremely useful for me… *thankyou*
