I love this little shadow. Cheap, easily available, and a total workhorse in my makeup bag. I just apply this to my lid and a bit into the crease, takes 5 seconds per eye, and I look presentable...

This is such an easy everyday eyeshadow for me because it's subtle but has enough shimmer to add 'dimension' - the cheat's way of looking like I've made more effort. It's completely foolproof as a...

This is a very light frosted taupe shade. I gave it 4 out of 5 lippies because it's pretty sheer...but it's a pretty color and would look great over the right base. Perhaps Maybelline's Color...

I'm not sure if I'd buy again or not. Maybe. I wish the shade was more pigmented, but it is nice. It is a light taupe that is close to skin toned with a silvery/lilac tone to it. Very neutral. It's...

I absolutely love this color. I was looking for a light taupe shade I could wear on my lids, and this is it. This shade is a very cool, silvery taupe with slight shimmer, but is probably neutral...

I have used this eyeshadow every day for months now. This is my go to base! I have green eyes and I feel like this compliments them so well. I can either use it alone or as a base to build up for a...

I bought this in the new black packaging. Mine is labeled "Silken Taupe 180S". Although this one isn't quite as pigmented as the others, it adds a dark shimmer to any eye. I like the way it looks...

This is just meh. I really like the color in the pan, but the texture is just awful. I almost have to scrape it to get any color, and it requires lots of patting like other reviewers stated to...

I have to say this is probably one of my favorite eyeshadows esp from Maybelline. I have since purchased the newer taupe shadow that theyve repackaged which is a touch darker than this one but i...

There was a pretty substantial period of time where I wore this color literally every day, until I discovered the Shimmering Sands trio from Covergirl and made the switch to that (this is like a...
