I wanted to add this is great for contouring on fair to light/med skin. I don't contour daily, I've got high cheekbones, but its a go to when I do for night. Fair warm leaning taupe, yet being matte and so subtle, it really works without leaving the tell tale brown slash on your face which may work for Kardashians but not in real life. Its matte and I've used it for yrs as a crease shade (again, subtle contouring/contrast) and on lids too, yet have barely made a dent. So for inexpensive, workhorse type of item, this is a go to and also great for traveling.
I`d buy this again in a heartbeat! What a terrific satin matte neutral beige, with a golden peach undertone. Don`t be put off by the pinkish look in the container. On the skin it becomes a golden peachy beige, very neutral, very polished. I don`t really see any taupe to it at all except maybe that it is a neutral suitable for either warm or cool complexions.
It lasts all day, blends like a dream, feels like butter, and doesn`t crease. Nor does it cause any irritation to my sensitive lids. No over the top shimmer, this is a matte but not a dead kind of chalky matte, it is satiny, with life to it, yet it doesn`t accentuate any wrinkly crepey skin around my aging lids.
Great as a base coat under other shadows or on it`s own for a wash from brow to lashline. Right next to it, on the rack is Linen, which goes really nice with Earthly Taupe. Same satin matte, ignore the pink undertone, it works as a tear duct and brow bone highlighter with this or other shades.
I bought mine in "Earthly Taupe 170S". I've had this for years now. My skin is a little lighter than NC15 but this matches nicely and gives my lids a bit of color. I actually just re-bought this in the new packaging (black now instead of a dark blue). I don't know if they re-formulated it but it doesn't feel like it. It still glides on nicely, isn't powdery or cakey, and lasts all day.
I bought this for a dollar at a discount store since it looked like such a pretty color in the pan. Unfortunately, when I started to swatch it, the shadow was chalky and powdery. The pigmentation isn't great either. I think the color might show if someone had a fair skin tone. I'm have light-medium skin and the color looked like the color of my eyelid.
I prefer matte shades, and this taupe is perfect! I like to apply it lightly with a brush so I get a faint wash of color.
Maybe I got a bad batch but this stuff was terrible. It looked a nice base shade in the pan but it is a nothing colour with zero pigmentation and I am extremely fair, cant imagine what it would be like for anyone medium or darker.
Dont like it that well. The pigmentation isn't that great and Ive tried it in a variety of different ways (primer,base,wet) and I just came to the conclusion that the pigmentation is bad.
This is a great matte color to use as an overall wash to even out skin on eyes and as a base to add on to... It's matte but not all chalky or cakey and has very little if any noticeable fallout when applying,. I use elf's 1 dollar eyeshadow brush to pack on the color. Great quality shadow, very silky and smooth. WIll repurchase again and again.
My absolute favorite nude eyeshadow. I'm quite pale, and this gives me a bit of color when I'm feeling extremely low maintenance or lazy with my makeup. It leaves a gorgeous finish, and I will definitely buy again
I bought this sort of on a whim, it was on clearance at my local kroger. It's pretty much the exact shade as my skin, and since it's matte finish, I think it'll be great for blending out other eyeshadows. As far as wearing it on its own, I don't think that would work. But I had been needing a good blending shade, and this is perfect for that. It does have a lot of fallout, but because of the color that doesn't bother me. Overall I'd recommend it as a blending shade if you have somewhat pale skin like I do.
