Taupe seems to be one of those universal colours that most people find flattering and is usually the backbone of creating a polished eye look. Of course there are different nuances of taupes, while to the untrained non makeup addict eye they all look rather similar in the pan, once on there are varying undertones that makes each one that little bit different and therefore warranting a space in ones make up collection.
It was quiet interesting swatching these together as I found that it
made the differing tones more visible. I've entitled this
post "some" as I don't have enough arm space to swatch all my
Kjaer Weis wisdom, this is probably one of my most cool
toned taupes as it leans more grey, it has a satin finish.
Le Metier de
beaute Le Cirque Kaleidoscope, shade Spectacle. Its a slightly more mauve
toned taupe with a satin finish and tiny micro glitter.
Tiger in the Wild palette, another cool toned taupe, the finish is more
of a satin and has a really flattering glow about it.
The taupe from the Suqqu Kozuecha
#10 palette, this has a golden tone and has a shimmery finish.
Bunny Rouge Bohemian Waxwing, on me I get a very slight touch of bronze to this shimmery taupe.
satin taupe, slightly deeper taupe, again I find this has a mauve tone
and with a shimmery finish.
Burberry Rosewood #09 beautiful soft taupe
with a hint of rose/mauve, has a very gently shimmer and glow finish.
neglected to include RBR Solstice Halcyon, which is a bit of a fail on
my part as I have hit so much pan on that shade I will be ordering
Swatches L-R: Kjaer Weis, LMDB, Suqqu, RBR,MAC,Chantecaille, Burberry
My very simple look below is Burberry on the inner lid, RBR on the outer and Kjaer Weis in the crease.
So my question is, are there any other taupes you think I need?
