SWATCHES: Mineral bronzers and some more brown stuff

 What we got here:
Silk Naturals Cider (blush)
Silk Naturals Mousse (eyeshadow)
Silk Naturals Eu-taupe-ia (eye shadow)
Lucy Minerals Glow (blush)
Silk Naturals Beach Bunny (bronzer)
Silk Naturals Tahiti Sweetie (bronzer)

All photos were taken in daylight. Swatches are done on bare hand (no base).

Mousse and Eu-taupe-ia look almost the same in real life...
more comparison later in this post

Tahiti Sweetie is my favorite matte bronzer right now...
( Shouldn't it be called a "tanner" instead? )
this photo shows their lovely sheen

 blended out

 Mousse and Eu-taupe-ia totally look the same in the jars...

From SN website: Mousse is "matte medium chocolate" and
Eu-taup-ia is "matte medium taupe"
See their own swatch here

So I want to try to show the difference, so here are more swatches:
On bare hand again (I've tried with a base too, but got the same result because they are really pigmented)

LEFT: Mousse RIGHT: Eu-taupe-ia

 So basically Eu-taupe-ia is just slightly more ashy, taupe toned brown
and kind of lighter than Mousse as well
(I love them both!)

I love Eu-Taupe-ia! It's one of the best crease colors ever.
