Bobbi Brown Taupe Sparkle Eyeshadow

Bobbi Brown Taupe Sparkle Eyeshadow ($28.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a yellowy, medium-dark brown with a dirty champagne sparkle/shimmer. I don’t quite see taupe–I think it’s too warm-toned, too golden and brown to be a true taupe. It’s yellower than Bobbi Brown Cement. Too Faced Cinnamon Sugar is browner. MAC Cactus Thorn is similar in color but has a more pearled finish. Dior Golden Savannah #1 is darker and has a satin finish. Urban Decay Suspect is browner and darker.

Benefit Milk It Longwear Powder Eyeshadow

Benefit Milk It Longwear Powder Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “pearly white.” It’s a neutral white with a pearly, metallic finish. There are a lot of similar white eyeshadows, but here were a few that I thought I’d mention specifically: Urban Decay Polyester Bride has a similar finish but is a touch less stark; bareMinerals Silhouette is less metallic; and NARS Self Portrait 2 is cooler-toned.
