My dissapointment when I spent £12 on this, got it home and realised I have the same colour (an almost exact dupe of this) in my "Whats Nude" eyeshadow palette by soap and glory which was only £10 and came with 3 other shadows. :(
Aw well. This shadow is soooo pretty in the pan. Its grey/silver with a purple sheen with a tiny bit of brown. (Though I wouldn't class it as brown and wouldn't use it with brown shadows really) Its basically a true taupe with a purple undertone.
I usually put in the crease with whatever lid colour I'm using, the good thing is it works with everything and adds just enough definition without making you look like you're ready to go out on the town (it can achieve that too if thats what your after!) Sadly when I wear it all over the lid, it still looks a bit sheer no matter how much I try to build it. You can still see my eyelid. Also the purple is less evident and looks a bit muddier.
This isn't anything that special, but at least its useful. As you can see with what happened, its easily duped.
I love this color. It is one of my favorite mac eye shadow colors. I am fairly light for being hispanic but this color works perfect with my skin tone.
It was my first MAC eyeshadow and I really love it! The color is very different and unique, sometimes when I'm on a rush I just wear it and put some eyeliner and my eyes are done! I really recommend it!
This color is so beautiful. It's a shimmery neutral color with plumy undertone into it. Very easy to blend. I always get the complement when I wear this eyeshadow.
I have had this shade for ages, way before all the hype online. I revisited my pan after all the rave reviews about it...I honestly think its an average shade. It is pigmented, blends well, great for smokey eyes but in my opinion there are other taupes out there that I prefer to this one personally.
Definitely worth the hype!
Price: $15 CAD
Colour: silvery taupe with lavender overtone
Finish: metallic frost
I really love this. I totally get the hype about this fantastic colour! You can dress it down with neutrals or glam up with smoky shades <3
it looks even prettier when paired with purples and silvers.
A must have for any MACkies and taupe lovers! continued >>
Love this! The most gorgeous shade. It doesn't crease, even without primer, and it's so easy to blend! I always get compliments wearing this eye shadow! Definitely a must-have eye shadow.
Really great color, easy application. Doesn't crease, but I always use a primer. Love!
My go-to daily fav color. Perfect. Not too light, not too dark. Doesn't crease but I always use primer.
I've been wanting to buy this shadow for a while now and everytime I went into MAC it would be sold out. Which I guess is a good thing because it means it's very well loved and it's well loved for a damn good reason. It is a gorgeous sparkly taupe colour that has a buttery application, it's absolutely beautiful. I'm an NC25 and have medium brown eyes and it just makes them POP. I paired this shadow all over the lid with MAC's haux in the crease, or you could use a black colour or a dark brown as well. It all depends on how dramatically you want to wear this shadow.
I'm assuming if you have lighter skin this might be too dark of a colour for everyday but it'd be a super sexy look at night time. I am so glad I got this shadow, I have been using it everyday since I purchased it and I'm in love. It kind of looks like Hustle by Urban Decay, but Satin Taupe has a more purple undertone and the UD one is a more grey undertone to it. I think Satin Taupe is a way more flattering and feminine colour. I would definitely reccomend this shadow to anyone, especially if you're looking for something for daytime that has a little oomph or a gorgeous shadow to use at night time.
