This is an amazing color for blue eyes. It is a taupe gray, slightly purple undertones - but not purpley at all. I love that it is matte, but smoother than a typical matte shadow. My favorite way to wear this is all over the lid and blended into crease. It is perfect for a smokey eye, too.
A medium grey, matte. Very blendable. Works good on its own to slightly darken the outer angle of the eye; also works good in combination with other other colors to create a subtle smokey eye.
This colour is so versatile! It is like a taupe/grey/brown...depending on what you pair it with it can change. Sooo blendable. Sounds weird but I use this to fill in my brows! I have black hair and im very fair... and I have really sparse brows so I find when I use browns, even cool browns, my brows always look fake and such a different/off colour from my hair. When I use copperplate it gives my brows the perfect shade to go with my hair. The ashyness makes it look more natural and it just works for me!
One of my best purchases ever. Can be worn alone, lightly all over lid and built up into crease for a super-simple taupe eye; great medium base shade for a fuller smoky look; great crease shade for a subtle daytime/"natural" matte eye. Depending on the shades I pair with Copperplate, it can look more grey or more brown.
The Matte2 formula is smoother and more blendable than the original Mattes. I almost always prime with MAC Paint when I use powder eyeshadows, but this lasts quite well even without.
I've never, ever been a fan of taupes! This included. Taupes and greys simply register as ill-fitting on my eyelids. Fantastic under my cheekbones though.
However, other than the usage of this on the eyebrows, I've never found a way to use this on the eyelids. Only until recently, thanks to NikkieTutorials on youtube!
I now mix this with a warmer matte such as MAC Kid or Wedged to create a lovely neutral on the eyelid crease and even for a nose contour (That I have never been able to achieve before!)
Hoping I can find a combination in a single form, but at least I now have a use for my very ignored copperplate.
That being noted, matte2 is still my favourite formula. Never fails to be buttery and pigmented.
I love this in the crease! Smooth, pigmented, blendable. Great shadow.
Wow, what a stunningly beautiful color! I am NC20, asian and to be honest I don't like eyeshadows because most of the time it looks too made up, or it screams "look at my eyeshadow" instead of look at my eyes. I don't really like shimmery colors in general because of this.
Copperplate, I would describe it as a true shadow color. Like a color of a shadow. Being Asian, I need more depth and dimension in my eyes, and when I put this on my crease it adds instant depth, without drawing attention to the eyeshadow color, it draws attention to my eyes.
I model as well and this looks great in photography. Highly recommended as a crease color. All over the lid may look a bit sallow, but that is just an opinion.
This is a great warm grey colour and looks great on all skin tones. I think that this is definately a staple colour that everybody should have. I love to use this colour to lightly contour the eye and then weat a red lip! love this colour if you don't have it you must buy it.
About me: NW13 (neutral-cool toned, very fair), blue eyes, Color season is True Summer, Baumann Skin Type is OSPW.
I love using Copperplate as a cool toned crease color for my day time eye shadow looks, especially with brown and purple lid colors. It makes a gorgeous crease for MAC's Satellite Dreams. Highly recommend as a MAC must!
Will repurchase forever, the perfect crease color for daytime smokey eyes with my NW20 skin!
