I’ve had no sun in my part of Florida for the past several days. It’s been raining on and off every single day. While I love the rain, this makes swatching a pain. I finally said ‘ah well,’ and ended up swatching my entire Silk Naturals eye shadow & blush Collection (except for Cougar, missed grabbing it from the drawer) for you.

Thanks for this, Phyrra. The swatches look gorgeous, especially Flame (you don’t know how long I’ve been on the hunt for a good red.) Must hunt for a review on this company. How big are sample sizes? Is international shipping expensive? Thanks
You’re quite welcome! I’ve reviewed them, I like them
Which are you favorite colors? I haven’t bought from them yet, but I’d really like to. I just like opinions to go off of while purchasing.
the swatches are lovely by the way!
Just added my favorites up there for ya And thank you, it’s so hard to swatch without direct sunlight.
Wow, lots of gorgeous colors there! Very nice swatches.
Yay, which are your favs?
I’m really digging Scandal, Sizzle, Go, Charmed, Vida, Aubergine, Cherry Blossom, Retro, Cabana, Mojave, Slick, Metero and Flair. I wish they offered samples, but I can understand why they don’t…I just feel like I have so many full-sized jars already. urgh. It’s hard for me to convince myself that I really, really need ANOTHER one. (But, somehow, I usually manage to do just that…)
Thanks so much for the list!!
You’re quite welcome
Apparently I cannot find how to order samples . . or I can’t find their eyeshadow sample page. Everything I found easily
They don’t do eye shadow samples.
But I think they have a good return policy.
“Because we like to provide you with reasonable prices, and quick order processing times we do not offer samples of eye shadows and lippies. We used to offer them, and they were so time consuming to produce that we decided to just accept returns on the colors that weren’t working for you, and spend our time processing your orders quickly and taking good care of you.”
Ah okie dokie. Thanks so much for letting me know. I was looking around wondering where they were.
That’s really awesome that they make MAC clones.. I’m gonna have to put them on my future orders list.
Phyrra, you have to be swatching your entire back to show these! That is a lot of work you have done here. Thanks for sharing it.
It has been cloudy for an unusual amount of days for FL, hasn’t it?
I like Pretty (pink!), Verde (great alcoholic drink and you can find it at 7-11….lol), Slick and Bewitched.
I just put in a huge order for Aromaleigh. Looks like this company will be next.
I swatched this on my thigh – on my good leg – as it’s easier when doing a lot of colors than my arm.
It’s been constantly raining here, yeah.
Glad you like SN
Thanks for the swatches. I really like Silk Naturals, although I haven’t placed an order recently. I think they have some great lippie products.
I’m loving their skin care products.
Which are your favorites?
What do you recommend?
The Apricot Cleansing Oil has my face baby butt soft. The Green Tea & Aloe serum is really nice for the summer heat. Nice and light, good for layering.
I’ve had both products for a month & have barely put a dent in the bottles. So it’s great for the price.
I recently started adding the Super serum & it’s been doing amazing things as well. It’s brought under the surface zits to the surface, but treated them in the same breath. I wake up with smooth looking skin.
The Eye Lash Conditioning gel has been working for me as well. It’s seized dramatic lash loss. I lose some lashes here ‘n there. Length has increased. It’ll probably take a couple more weeks to see volume difference, but I honestly don’t want to be without this.
I’ll have to do a review on zee blog.
I would love to read your review
Sorry to butt in here But does their cleanser emulsify well when you pat water onto it? I know most companies with a natural bent, their oil cleansers are really…eh-hem…cruddy in that department. So basically I’m looking for a quality one that turns creamy white and rinses relatively clean? I see they actually have a real, honest to gawd emulsify ingredient listed, so that’s very promising!
Ugh… correction: honest to gawd emulsifYING ingredient. *facepalm*
It does have an emulsifying agent and washes off clean. Dries me out like crazy, but I’m used to doing a true, non-emulsifying oil cleanse that I don’t fully steam off. (My skin leans towards dry!)
It kind of does. It’s hardly noticeable. I don’t use a toner, so I couldn’t firmly tell you whether it rinses clean. I just know my face is ultra soft when I rinse & removes my makeup, even without using a cleansing wipe.
I’ve heard MAC’s Cleanse Off Oil does turn milky once water is applied.
Silk Naturals is on my list of companies to try…great swatches, these will be my point of reference
Yay glad I can help
Ohhh, ahhhh. My eyes immediately went to Scandal. I love Planetary,Sizzle, L’chaim, Retro and Pop too. Adding these to my shadow wishlist.
Yay! They’re lovely. I especially love Pop and Scandal.
I love all of my SN goodies. That’s pretty amazing because I have a lot of it. LOL I am really impressed with the lash gel and the facelift serum. I think I have mentioned several hundred times Stellar is my favorite blush from SN. I always like to split orders with a friend and we can sample more of the shadows. That would be one thing I would like to see her do is offer samples of shadows. I am not the type of person who likes to return things. You did a great job swatching all of those!
I know what you mean about hating to return. And thanks I only forgot one shadow, Cougar, which I found AFTER I’d taken all the pix >.<
Well, you know what that means. You have to start ALL OVER from scratch just so you can add the one you forgot! hehe
This is great. Thanks for the swatches, Phyrra. This will come in handy when I order from SN. I am really liking Papyrus and Cabin Fever. Did you have to use your whole leg for the colors? LOL.
Hehe, nope, there was room to spare!
I love most SN products I tried. I got all of my SN eye shadows for free (1 with every $30 you spend), love the blushes (especially the cream blushes though they don’t have many shades yet), glows, finishing powders and lippies. The only product I don’t like is foundation.
It’s a good thing they have free international shipping (orders over $125) as I also love the skincare which makes shipping quite expensive.
Yeah I like the fact that they do freebies like that!
I need to put together another SN package. I have a bunch of their eyeshadows and lippies, and handful of blushes, and a bunch of their skincare stuff (LOVE!) I’m a little hesitant to make an order though, because I’m in the Mystery Adventure Club and already am getting all of the GWPs. I use eye stuff seldom enough that I really don’t need dupes!
Oooh how do you like being in the adventure club?
It’s nice to get to try out all of the GWP eyeshadowss. I’m always curious what they will look like when I see the names up each week, but I doubt I’ll ever get to where I order weekly and get every one. It’s a nice way to actually get to try all the limited fun goodies Karen makes. (This one also included a wild berry lip lube. A prototype maybe? I don’t know. But it was a nice balm, thin, but moisturizing!)
Thanks for the swatches. So many pretties in there. Did you have to swatch them on your thigh? I’ve actually done that before.
Yes, I swatched on my thigh sometimes it’s easier than the back of my hand or my arm.
Shit, if I swatched shades on my thigh someone would probably want the purple-ish red shade, only to find out it is a patch of spider veins. :p
HAHAHA That’s so funny! “Oh look at that pretty shade!”
Nice swatches! I want them ALL
Aww, which are your favs?
Pretty, Swamp, Cabana and Safety all look beautiful. I’ve been on the site but the product pics all look quite muted. Thanks, your swatches are always helpful!
Glad my swatches can help
