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 me which unlike many neutrals doesn't disappear against my MAC C40 skin tone or make me look ill, and has a bit of a retro '70s look which I quite like. It works well with my staple blush shade (Bobbi Brown Tawny) or bronzer, but sometimes can look a little yellow. The texture is off-putting for me though; it's very matte and very drying. I find I've got to add something on top to make it comfortable. Bobbi Brown's Brownie, a shade that doesn't work on my on its own, gives a hint of mauve that softens the yellow tinge of Taupe, and adds a creamy texture and finish to give a more flattering and wearable nude.

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 the brown. Formula is more emollient than the other matte lipsticks I have from MAC, so it tends to disappear on me pretty quick. All in all a nice lipstick, but it's not one I grab on a daily basis.

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 seem in sunlight. Overall it's a nice shade for work and can be paired with heavy eye makeup for a night out look. For reference, I have a medium - tan completion (southeast Asian skin) and dark brown hair. When I had lighter hair the shade looked more 'nude'Check out my blog for mac lipsticks: https://maclipsbeautyblog.wordpress.com

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 on. I usually love everything brown toned when it comes to makeup and regularly use what appears to be a straight up brown lipcolour (Too Faced Melted Chocolate Honey) but this looked too brown on me. My skintone is NC30. The formula is quite nice, smooth and easy to apply but long lasting.

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 light or have too much pink in them. This is more brownish. It is matte but I still find it very comfortable. It can be a bit drying after a few hours though, but I really don't mind it. If you have a skintone similar to mine, i say give it a try. I uploaded a picture to show what it looks like on me. I will definitely repurchase, this has easily become my everyday lipstick.

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 this lippie feels very drying (compared to my other mac matte lippies) nonetheless i love it! The reddish brown definitely compliments my skintone! This is my first brown lippieee love it! Will definitely repurchase! 😁😁😁

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 transition to Taupe in the evening. Like most matte lippies, Taupe can be super drying, so I always exfoliate my lips or moisturize with a lip balm before using. Has enough pigment to only require a single swipe and lasts pretty long (roughly 6/7 hours) until a meal. 4/5
