Silk Naturals Soho, Gotham, Blackout Swatches

Nothing to disclose, I purchased the products shown.  Link is not an affiliate link.

I purchased three of the new cream shadows from Silk Naturals new Hot in the City Spring 2013 collection.  These are in 4.5 ml tubes with doefoot applicators, $4.99 each.

Shadows were swatched on bare skin.  Photos taken inside, no flash.

Soho is "a medium taupe with very slight glints of gold. It has a full coverage luminous creamy- almost powdery finish that's perfect for daytime office looks.  It's great by itself, and made to match with Gotham.  Soho looks "too dark" when you swatch it on your hand, but it's not.  It brings light, and a sexy simmer to your eyes."

Gotham is "a  deep, dirty grey with a hint of brown shade with a shimmery finish.  It blends beautifully as a crease color, is a fun liner- and just a gorgeous complex color."

This had a sort of rosy copper sheen on me.

Blackout is "jet black Chromatic Cream Shadow that dries to a matte almost powdery charcoal color.  It's fantastic as a liner- just use a brush to grab some off the wand, and apply.  Richly pigmented for a bold black color."

It does dry to the powdery charcoal color, for those of you who are still afraid of black shadows.  I'd like to see a shimmery version of this shade!

These are some really nice shades, and I think I should've purchased Ozone (sheer cool highlight) and Metro (brushed silver) to go with them!

I hope you've found the swatches helpful, and thanks for looking.
