Top of the Taupes!

If i could only wear one eyeshadow for the rest of my life it would have to be Taupe. I love the fact that it isn't a brown it isn't a grey but a mysterious combination which seems to suit so many different looks and so of course i am always searching for the perfect Taupe.
Here's some of my favourites that i have come across.


NYX Slate & GOSH No14 Grey/Brown

 MAC Satin Taupe & Stila Kalahoo

 Everyday Minerals In the garden & Barry M 51


A recent find is the No7 Stay perfect eyeliner in Chainmail which was love at first swatch. Its a beautiful taupe which is smudge proof, waterproof and once its on it literally doesn't move.


Anyone else having a Love affair with Taupe?

  1. I love taupe as well :) My favourite is probably Satin Taupe as well as MAC's paint pot in Vintage Selection from the Champale collection, I find the 2 go well together :) I love the look of that NYX eyeshadow, will have to note it down!

  7. Indeed - the perfect colour. I always get asked what colour I'm wearing when I wear my must have taupe (Max Factor's Earth Spirit in Burnt Bark) - in fact, I think maybe you asked at one point too. I love that grey brown smokey look - soft and dramatic at the same time, lovely x

  23. For a quick taupe eye i like Heather Mauve Shimmer Wash Shadow by Bobbi Brown. It'a quite sheer (but buildable) and has a slight shimmer so you can't tell if it's a bit messy!! My kinda shadow for early mornings!

  24. I loave taupe too. I love all you have above and Heather Mauve by Bobbie Brown and Chanel Saphari. Great taupes. And of course the famous Shu Uemura ME silver 945 which is really a taupe but that's very hard to find now.

  27. I am totally in love with taupe eyeshadows! I agree with you, if I could only wear one color of eyeshadow for the rest of my life, taupe would be it!
    I have a ridiculous amount of them, but some of my favorites are Guerlain L'Instant D'Un Soupir, Bare Minerals Queen Tiffany, and NARS Bali! You should check them out! =)
