I wear this color everyday!! For a natural look, it's perfect, and if you blend it/mix it with other brighter or darker colors, it gives you the perfect shade for Smoky eyes. I have used it on different skin tones too, and it works! It's a must get for a flawless, natural look.
Neutral with a bit of a kick - for me it is a hybrid olive-gold-brown shade with gold shimmer that is beautiful in the pan and translates most beautifully onto the lid. Patina is one of those really amazing colors that is so incredibly versatile: all over the lid on its own, a crease color, a surprise on the lower lid, this eyeshadow brings out the multi-dimensional facets of blue eyes and is subtle enough for every day.
A hit/miss for some, but a hit for me :)
Patina is probably one of the oddest shadows I've come across. I wasn't really looking for anything in particular when I came across this shade at the counter, but I was intrigued. It's a taupe.....with a hint of bronze......with pink and green iridescence.
Have I lose you yet? Ok, good.
I have pale peachy undertoned skin, neutral-warm chocolate brown hair, and honey brown eyes. This shadow is a GREAT antiqued neutral that brings out the little flecks of green and honey orange in my eyes. It's very unassuming in the pan, but a great shade for all over the eyelid (with a pale cream shade to highlight). I feel like everyone should try it just to see if some magic happens :)
Not sure it will show up the same on darker skin tones so I recommend it more for the fair-light group.
