Peach eyeshadow

I'm looking for a peach eyeshadow but couldn't find one yesterday in the shops I looked in - any ideas? I want it to be more orangey peach than pinky peach IYSWIM.

Estee Lauder do one. I wear it with a dark grey eye shadow, and its really nice. I know that I'm not describing it as looking nice, but it does! It may be part of a duo set with another colour - I had mice as part of a gift set.

MAC Paradisco or Arena are both nice peaches. Look great on green or blue eyes.

Second the Mac rec. And looks great on brown eyes too ; )

Brill thanks - my eyes are green smile I use big beautiful eyes by benefit but wanted something more peachy.

I can't find the estee lauder one but the peach ones look nice!

I have a peachy coloured Estee Lauder eyeshadow, its Nude Fresco.
That may be the one Happy is on about.

Thats it, Bear! I wear it with a khaki/green colour and with a grey colour and it looks very nice with my green eyes., so it should look good on you too Maggie. I know I'm not making it sound that good, but it really is nice on, honest.

Body Shop used to do these shimmer bricks in a quad and one of them was a very pretty metallic peach with other tonal shades. Very pretty and easy to build up the colour too.

Just checked, they still do them. They are called shimmer cubes and the warm one has the peach I have wiffled on about. HTH.

I once had a benefit girl put 'pistachio' sparkly eyeshadow on me with a green colour - that doesn't sound good either but it looked amaznig!

I think I might have that quad- will have to check if its on the right lines but even if not thank you for reminding me about the body shop! Completely forgot about them! Will have a shopping trip and try all these out!

BTW it's because I've taken a shine to coral this year that I wanted the eyeshadow!
