Cassis – plum black-brown
Vert Bronze – complex, hard to describe, it has olive, bronze, gold tones
Marine – shimmering navy
Ébène – matte black
Tweed (Aqua Crayon formula) – warm golden taupe
Note that Marine goes on the eyes a bit more subtle than when swatched on the arm. At least on me. If you want a brighter blue, check out Bobbi Brown’s Denim Ink (new from her Denim & Rose collection).
Although I don’t own all the shades, I have tried every single color. The bright teal green color included. One of the national artists applied it on me and it was so gorgeous. But knowing myself all too well, knew I would never be brave enough to use it on my own.
I’m waiting for a pretty brown shimmer color to be released or a black gold. Their Black Shimmer isn’t really black at all, it’s really more grey.
I cannot swatch compare these to other brands as it is extremely time consuming and tedious. I have already done an extensive smokey eye series that I highly recommend you check out if you want more eyeliner options other than your basic black or brown. There is a black/grey post that will show you how many different variations of black eyeliners there are. Click on the Smokey label on the side bar for those posts. I do ask that you please do not republish those photos even though they haven’t been watermarked. It can be extremely frustrating to put time and effort into something that gets stolen and put on other blogs and websites. All my work is copyrighted.
*Update* if you like these colors but want a gel formula instead I recommend checking out these options:
Cassis – Bobbi Brown Black Plum
Vert Bronze – no dupe!
Marine – Bobbi Brown Denim Ink
Ébène – Bobbi Brown Caviar Ink
Tweed no dupe!
