Top of the Taupes

Does Mac's Satin Taupe even need an introduction? I feel like nearly every blog post I have seen entitled What's in my Mac Palette, and there is a good reason it is such a coveted shade. I own a grand total of two Mac eye shadows, this being the first I ever bought. And boy is she a beaute.


I have been very busy in the last few weeks, and I am sure I will  only get busier when uni starts up again next week. This has made me look through my collection and pull out items that give me a polished look in the least amount of time possible. Satin Taupe is just that, an eye shadow that looks beautiful simply applied with a fluffy eye shadow brush all over the lid and then blended into the crease. It truly is an every day shade, it never looks dramatic or overdone, but it doesn't result in a 'no makeup' makeup look either.



I really think the formula of Mac eye shadows is phenomenal. They aren't so pigmented that you really need to pay attention to what you're doing (I'm looking at you Urban Decay) but they still have fantastic colour payoff. Of course this is just considering the two shades I have sampled from their line.




I love Satin Taupe, I really do. I don't think I'd ever want to be without this shade in my collection, it is just so necessary to me. I would highly recommend this as a first choice from Mac's many eye shadows if you have not yet tried them out, or as an essential part of your Mac collection if you are already an avid fan.

Please let me know what your favourite shade of eye shadow is from Mac, I am going to invest in a 15 pan palette quite soon and I am making a list of shadows to fill it with :)

  2. Seen and heard bunches about this shade of course! But Ive got so many taupes in my collection right now, If I could get one more it has to be from NYX and l'oreals infallible shadows!

  4. I adore Satin Taupe, I use it a lot! I think at the moment it's my favourite MAC shade, I did just get Shale which I think may nudge into top position. I haven't tried it yet though.

    I suggest waiting for the new palettes to come out, they are sold as a palette and then you buy the different inserts for them, including the 15 pan. I just got mine in the mail today. I'll take photos and put up a post on the tomorrow if you want to see what they look like. I suggest purchasing the shadows from the U.S. too, they are less than half price over there!

  5. This is a lovely shade, and it looks lovely on your eye by itself! I have 2 MAC shadows, Cranberry and Sketch and although they're lovely to apply I find I don't use them much because they're a bit scary! I think I may need to get Satin Taupe to add to my quad.

  6. Been wanting this for ages! It's beautiful and looks like a great colour for those lazy days where you still want something quick and easy on your lids!

  7. I just ordered Satin Taupe and I am anxiously awaiting its arrival. I've been doing quite a bit of research to which shades I want to add to my palette. Some shadows either on my wish list or in the mail are: woodwinked, vanilla, brulee, embark, and wedge.

  8. I would love to own this shadow its something everyone raves about and it looks so pretty in the pictures. The only MAC eyeshadow I own is Woodwinked and I hardly ever wear it, but I'm thinking that Satin Taupe and Woodwinked would go really well together.

  14. I love neutral shades, especially taupes as they are just so wearable! Unfortunately I haven't had the opportunity to try any MAC eyeshadows yet (a bit too much for my budget_ but the formulation and texture looks amazing! Satin Taupe looks so effortless on you, yet still giving your eyes a bit of emphasis :)
