I just got this shadow and I love it, but I don’t have much to match with it. I definitely need a lighter shade for the inner corner and inner eyelid area. I think I have a few colors I could wear with it in the crease, but all suggestions are welcome. I have seen some people mention Vanilla and Quartzite and Bittersweet as a trio, but I am not sure it is is too warm for my skin tone. Looking for a neutral pairing. Thanks!

Any of the Taupe-ier shdes should work too. You just need a little depth difference.

That is what I was thinking. Can you recommend a more neutral taupe or less warm (than Vanilla) shade lighter than Quartzite? What about Vanilla or Cream versus Boom or Motive or other shades like Exposed or Goddess. Trying to figure out what is more neutral, light enough, and not completely matte is kind of hard online sometimes.

I have darker taupe shades. I bought Alibi thinking it might work with Quartzite as a lighter shade but the tone, depth, and blue shift was a little off with it (though I did match Alibi with a deep taupe and it looked amazing!).

Thanks for your help!

The Cream is a really good idea!

I also feel like Vanilla in the jar is warmer than it is on skin.

I will look up the others later today, and I defintiely see what you mean about the blue shift in Alibi not working.

I could not find my Vanilla.

Boom and Quartize are kind of close, but Boom is slightly less depth, and slightly more pink.

Goddess is very close to Adorn. It is less pink than Adorn and no blue shift.

Cream is a nice neutral highlight. I am sure it has less yellow than Vanilla. And Oh So Versatile!

I could not find the other two you mentioned, but hopefully what I did find will help a little.

Thank you for your time! Very helpful!

Cream sounds like a perfect match. I was thinking Vanilla but I need something more opaque to pop against Quartzite. Actually, last night I posted a picture of me wearing Quartzite on the forum and you can tell I need more of an opaque color next to it.

Are Boom and Bare similar to Quartzite? I know a lot of people like that combination and I have been wondering if I am missing out all this time. I don’t want to buy something that is close to what I already have though.

I loved Adorn; such a bummer it is discontinued! I know I still have a half full jar somewhere in my collection.

Bare is peachier/pinker than Boom. At least from what I recall. And they are a similar depth.

Hmmm. Peachier or pinker sounds lovely. I will wait though; I need to see how all of my new colors work out!

Thank you for everything! I ended up ordering Cream, Frenchie (to go with Danny), Focus, Latent, Selenium, Fusion, and Motive, so we will see how they are interchangeable with each other and Quartzite!
