Pale grey matte eye shadow?

(12 Posts)

I've been looking for a pale grey matte eye shadow for ages to replace a used up much loved but can't find one anywhere. Everything is too warm and browny. I've tried Boots, Superdrug and all the department stores.

Any suggestions?

MAC Copperplate?

Nars was one of the few that I found that do a matte grey. Most others were too sparkly.

Nars looks good - not looked at that brand

Oo, that Nars looks good. Watching this thread with interest as I struggle to find the right greys too and they always seem too brown. I can't do brown at all, I just look like I've been punched!

I struggle finding the right greys too. So many browns, creams and neutrals, but no perfect Matt grey. Back in the 90s I had a light grey/slightly mauve shade that I loved. Still looking for a replacement...

yep - loads of matte neutrals but vast majority are too warm. I can get away with cool taupey browns but anything else looks muddy on me.

I like this palette. Was just contemplating it earlier!

No 7 do a matte grey palette.

Have you tried Bobbi Brown? They have quite a good variety of grey shades. The matte ones are lovely and blendable.
