I finally have the Silk Naturals Spring 2012 swatched for you. I really love the glimmer shades!
Hi-Res is a raspberry red with lots of deeper red glimmers.
Sparkly raspberry red.
Wild Child is a bright orange with lots and lots of sparkles.
Bright, rich sparkly orange.
Rattle is essentially a “lime yellow” tone- with lots and lots of glimmer.
Sparkly yellow with green undertones.
Ruffian is a stunning blue with lots and lots of glimmers.
Sparkly bright sky blue.
Kick is a bright purple with lots and lots of purple and blue glimmers.
Sparkly purple with blue, purple and violet glimmers.
Driftwood is a medium deep ashy brown color with a Mattelight finish.
Soft brown that will make a perfect soft crease shade.
Kind is gorgeous light warmish taupe with a smidge of coppery highlights.
Pale light taupe with subtle shimmer.
Berwick is a deeper blue purple with golden bronze shimmer. It has sort of a suede finish- it’s essentially matte but with pebbly flecks of shimmer.
Deep bronzed brown with slight gold shimmers.
I’m not sure if Airy is supposed to be Calm, so I don’t know the official description for this one.
Soft, pale blue with subtle shimmer.
Hey Baby – Kissable Cream
Hey Baby is a sheer nude tan lip gloss with a creamy smooth texture, and a light cocoa butter scent.
A sheer nude tan describes it perfect.
Twirl – Kissable Cream
Twirl is a creamy peach coral shade with just a tiny little bit of shimmer added to the creamy finish.
Light creamy coral with peach tones. I actually love this one and think it’s a perfect ‘nude’ lip color for me. It reminds me a bit of MAC Blossom Culture.
Grenache – Kissable Cream
Grenache is a sheer cool red tone with a hint purple and dash of shimmer.
Cool red that leans pink.
As you know, I recently did a Rainbow eye on Memorial Day with the glimmers. It was pretty much effortless because of how easily the colors blended together.
So I must tell you how awesome Kick looks. It’s such an awesome purple! I love purples like that
As usual, I’m thrilled with the quality of Silk Naturals. The lip products are hydrating and they have a nice creamy finish. The eye shadow colors are clear, bright and cheerful. I think they’re lovely.
What do you think of these colors?
Some products purchased by me. Some products sent for consideration. All opinions are my own.

Every time I see the rainbow eye look, I think about how amazing it looks! I’d try it myself, but I think I’m missing a few shades.
I still need to pick up up Kick and Ruffian! I got Rattle as the freebie with my last order (MOAR yellow green EEEE!)
I love love love love love Silk Naturals. I find myself continually using more and more of their stuff. A good percentage of my skin care comes from SN, my foundation and brows are always SN, and I of course lurrrrve their eyeshadows. I love their blushes too but I don’t have any full sizes yet so i tend to get distracted by my Meow Cosmetics stuff! (SN lippies are of course also amazing but I tend not to do lip products most days!)
I love that I can put in an order to replenish all of my skincare and foundation supplies and then get a bonus free eyeshadow or balm, because I always make sure I spend $30 or more.
Eeee!! I think I might need to put in a little order Actually, I think I want them all!
I love SN, their shadows seem like they’re getting a bit more interesting too now
When you previewed the glimmer shades earlier, I wound up placing an order because I am just that susceptible to rainbowness ;D I also bought Twirl and Grenache (and the Panache blush, on your suggestion, which I wore the other day and it did work pretty well with the theme I was going for!). I have no regrets, because everything is just so gorgeous.
They’re all purrty, but Kick is especially breathtaking *____* mmmm glitter…
All of these colors are pretty but oh my… Kick, Driftwood and Berwick look like must-haves for me.
The eyeshadows all look awesome!!
