By the name, the swatch, and MAC's color description of "Muted reddish-taupe brown", I would have never purchases this. I ended up buying a mini though with C-thru lipglass in a Holiday 2022 mini...

I would buy it again in two years when I finally use it up. It's not taupe at all so don't be fooled by the name. It's a brown with a bit of red. I'm still looking for a nude. It's nice but doesn't...

Taupe by itself isn’t too impressive. But when paired with Hover and Spice lip liners, I get a slightly deeper brownish red that makes me look more put-together (NC30/NW25). For a touch more red...

I like this better than whirl, it's not as deep as whirl, and it kinda has more denfinition(?). It's very warm, so I don't think people with cool complexions will be very found of this one, but in...

The shade is a neutral warm terracota with a hint of brown. This is the perfect shade that warms up my face but neutral enough that does not make it look like im trying too hard. If i can compare...

I bought this because many reviews say this is a great shade for darker complexions, and I'm still looking for the perfect beige/neutral-nude for lipstick collection. Matte Taupe is a tan-nude on...

Taupe is a beautiful brown shade for medium warm skinned beauties. I wanted to buy Persistence but thanks to the SA, who convinced me to buy this one. Its a perfect work wear shade and i love it!

This colour was on my wish list for so long, so it's pretty ironic that I use the other colour I bought simultaneously (Twig) gets more use... The colour is a warm brown pink, leaning more towards...

Taupe is what I wanted whirl lipstick to look on me. It comes off a darker, muted brown nude on my pigmented lips. I find that once it's starts to fade it had a very faint orange hue which can be...

I have this and Brave and I gravitate towards Brave so much more. This is still a great colour but I think it's suited for more medium skin tones

There are so many makeup colours that are pretty but look ever so slightly off when you wear them. Taupe lipstick is one of those colours. It makes me look overly made up no matter how little I dab...

Too reddish brown for my taste but looks beautiful when I use it as a lip liner for velvet teddy.

Such a beautiful shade for my skintone! I am around an NC30 and this lipstick looks a bit darker than my natural lip color, it's perfect. I find lots of "nude" or neutral lip colors are always too...

A friend gave this to me after she found out the color doesnt suit her. I have never seen/heard this shade before so I was pretty excited to use it. Did mac changed their matte formula? Somehow...

Love the colour, definitely one of my favourite lippies from MAC! Imo, Taupe is a bolder version of Velvet Teddy with it's earthy, brick red shade. I'll typically wear Velvet Teddy in the day and...

No, I didn't buy this because of the Kylie Jenner lip trend. A beautiful deep nude color. Not a fleshy or beigey kind of nude but somewhat like a tan-nude. Think muted brown neutral. For...

This lipstick would be my favourite over velvet teddy if it weren't so drying! It is similar to velvet teddy but a deeper colour on my nw20 skin tone and i love the shade so much. I wish i could...

I used this lipstick for the first time today and I love it on my dark skin tone (NW45). I lined it with a dark brown NYX lipliner. I will try NYX espresso to see what it looks like. Your lips will...
