Soft Brown is a hard eyeshadow to duplicate and unfortunately most drugstore eyeshadows have some form of shimmer in them -- it&#39;s very rare to find good matte shadows in the drugstore brands. My advice to you would be to buy just one or two staple matte eyeshadows from a higher end brand like MAC, ones that you would use everyday.
