Silk Naturals Neutral Swatches

Nothing to disclose, I purchased the product.  I received "Race" as a gift with my purchase.  Link is not an affiliate link.

I purchased a handful of Silk Naturals shadows a while back, but just haven't had the time to swatch them until now!

Shadows are applied on bare skin using a dampened wet/dry brush.  All photos taken inside, no flash.

Normally I take close ups of each shade, but for some strange reason all but this one turned out looking strange.  My arm was a little red but in the pics it looked extremely red, and not usable.  Sorry!   These are the two shades that made me want to place the order in the first place, aside from the cream shadows.

Here's Silk Naturals' color descriptions of each shade:

Vanilla - shimmery cream
Frenchie - vanilla velvet
Miss You - light tan matte
Tru Luv - brown rose semi matte
Platinum - neutral silver shimmer
Race -  not listed on the site.  It's one of those colors I can't quite figure out what it is.  It's sort of a gunmetal shade on me.

While Miss You and Tru Luv aren't really dupes for the UD Naked Basics - they do have shades that are dupes for many of the colors - these are colors that I felt would work for me as similar shades, but not dead on dupes.  I wore Miss You paired with Frenchie today, and really liked he Miss You.  Frenchie is a bit too shimmery unless I put on the barest dusting, but a very pretty color.  It's much more pink tinged on me as well!   There's a few other colors that I'd like to try, so another order isn't far off.
