Personally I am "this" close to buying a backup of this shade... It is the best taupe I own, even better than MAC Satin Taupe(which is sometimes too dark) for everyday wear!! I have it on today, with Jordana Fabuliner in black, Nuance Gel pencil liner waterline, and Lorac Pro's black to soften it all up!! With Mascara of course!!
I find it light enough to be brightening and dark enough for a polished, noticeable look. I just LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE it, but it can be hard to find because it is so popular! I lost my first one in the old packaging so I bought it in the new packaging and it is still SO SO SO good
There really isn't anything to NOT love about this e/s. I tend towards WNW because I love their pallettes, but I stick to Cover Girl for single colors - and this one is by far my favorite.
It took me awhile to figure out that just getting back into the makeup scene (I literally went about ten years not wearing it) that simplicity is where I should start. I usually wear this as a wash, just one shade. Sometimes I'll put a deeper brown in the crease. I use it with Maybelline Master Drama Eyeliner in Coal Commander, and Loreal Voluminous mascara. Great for a day OR evening look.
All in all, it's a great shade and for the price, you should absolutely try it. I guarantee it'll remain in your stash forever!
I love this product. It's very natural, and the pigment is picked up on the brush quite easily. I would definitely re-purchase this product.
I'm really not a fan of Covergirl eyeshadows and I feel this one is no exception. I used to like them before I tried out shadows by other brands and now I realize that these ones are just no good. The shadows are not pigmented and show up on your eyes nothing like they are in the pan no matter how many times you layer them. You can even see the poor pigmentation in the swatches on this product. I prefer high end shadows for the most part but if you're looking for cheaper shadows than try Maybelline or Wet n Wild because they are MUCH better than Covergirl.
This is quickly becoming one of my favorite neutral shades. LOVE the color, consistency and pigment!
I don't agree with those who say this isn't pigmented enough. I fell asleep with it on, woke up today, and it was still on! (I know, it's bad that I forgot to take off my eye makeup. Whoops.) I also didn't even use primer before I put it on. Considering I have very oily skin, that's saying something. It's a pretty brownish/grayish color and it runs at about $3.50 at drugstores. For the price and the color payoff, you really can't beat it. A great everyday color. My only complaint is that it's very shimmery and I prefer a more matte finish for daytime. Overall I'd purchase again.
I love this shadow! I bought it originally because I had the Shimmering Sands 3 shadow palette and ran out of the middle color and didn't want to waste what was left of the darker brown and the light pink shade by purchasing another palette. TT was the closest match I could find, but still not exact. It looks better, in my opinion, with the rest of the SS palette! I pack it on my lid with a flat eye brush, and then run the darker brown in my crease up to my brow bone as well as under my eyes, then I use the lightest shade right under my brow and in my tear duct.
I have actually worn this shadow alone on my lid and under my eyes with just mascara and it's still gorgeous. If I'm ever short on time getting ready, this is my go-to color. I'll always keep one in my makeup box.
I did notice that they changed the packaging, I hope they didn't change the formula for this shadow! If so I'll probably have to splurge on MAC's taupe. Womp womp.
I picked this up after hearing so many good reviews, but unfortunately I had the same experience as the previous reviewer. I have the new packaging, and can get NO color at all to show up, even with using my finger or a sponge tip applicator to try to pack it on. Seriously Cover Girl? One of the few eyeshadows that people consistently spoke highly about, and you had to go change it? I'm NC40 for reference.
I really wanted to love this,seeing all the raving reviews I thought how could I go wrong? but there is no pigmentation I mean I'm fair really fair and I can not even build this color up. Now I'd like to mention that I did notice that the packaging on mine is more square and has COVERGIRL printed on the lid and not the usual CG, so perhaps they reformulated it? There is no way I can get this to look like the picture above even with a million layers and using a primer. Too bad, I love a bargain!!
This is my very favorite eye shadow all-over every-day-color. It goes on smooth and silky and the color has just the right amount of nude and shimmer qualities that it can go all over the lid and be slightly built up in the crease for a neutral and yet polished look. This is one of the only eye shadows I own that I am willing to wear without any other eye shadow color. If you want to intensify it, just add a little black to your crease. I highly recommend this. Please just don't buy them all. I am almost hitting pan and will need another soon. :)
