COLOR SPOTLIGHT is a new series on Sifa’s Corner. Every month I will show 10 or more products featuring one specific color or in the same color family. I have actually chosen 2 similar colors for May, these are GREY & SILVER.
Grey is a neutral or achromatic color, which is called a color “without color”. This is the color most commonly associated with conformity, boredom, uncertainty, old age, indifference, and modesty. So to break the boredom of Grey, I chose Silver to go with it.
I have picked 13 products in and closer to the Grey-Silver family. Some of these products may have different colors but with silver or grey undertones.
13 shades of Grey-Silver:
- MAC Objects of Affection- Silver + Blue Pigments + Glitter
- LORAC 3D liquid eye shimmer- Amethyst
- ELF Essential Flawless Eyeshadow- Smokey
- Make Up For Ever eyeshadows in
- Makeup Geek eyeshadows in
- LORAC Pro palette 2
- MAYBELLINE color tattoo- Audacious Asphalt
- MAC pressed pigment- Jet Couture
- LIME CRIME zodiac glitter- Ophiuchus
- URBAN DECAY 24/7 liquid liner- Bobby Dazzle
- LASplash glitter liner- Silver Dollar

LORAC Pro palette 2:
Price: $42. You can buy it online here.
When Lorac came out with Pro-2 palette, I was skeptical if it can compete with the Pro-1. These did not complete, rather created a perfect Pro collection. This palette has got more cool toned shades. I have picked 6 shades from this palette.
Cool Gray: This is a matte grey color slightly leaning to brown.
Charcoal: As a name implies, it’s a matte charcoal grey color.
Black: I picked this black because without a primer, this is almost like a dark charcoal grey color.
Snow: Shimmery silver white
Chrome: Similar to Cool Gray, but it has shimmery silver finish.
Silver: A perfect shimmery silver.
MAYBELLINE color tattoo- Audacious Asphalt:
Price: $4.14-6.99. You can buy it online here.
This is a dark grey with metallic silver in it. You can use it as eyeshadow base, eye liner or even as an eyeshadow.
MAC pressed pigment- Jet Couture:
Price: $21. You can find it online here.
This is a very interesting shade, and kinda hard to describe. It’s a frosted pressed pigment which is described as “Charcoal black”. If you look closely you can see it’s a warm black with silver and gold sparkles in it.
LIME CRIME zodiac glitter- Ophiuchus:
This is a silvery multicolored glitter. You have to use it with a good eyeshadow base.
