Estee Lauder Pure Color Eyeshadow: Tempting Mocha

Estee Lauder Tempting Mocha Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a soft taupe with a satin finish.  It has a touch of mauve to it, but it has that muted, grayish brown that makes it more taupe than anything else.  It’s soft, silky, and applies and blends with ease.  The color itself is a lighter taupe, which makes it a nice shade for everyday contouring of the lid.

  • Product: 27/30
  • Value: 8/10
  • Ease of Use: 4/5
  • Packaging: 4/5

FINAL THOUGHTS: This would be a flattering shade on cooler skin tones in particular, as it certainly leans on the cool side.  I also see this working well on even ultra pale skin tones, because it is softer.

WHERE TO BUY: Nordstrom

    I think that the colour is not worth it the prize.

  3. Lea

    The color is very pretty. I like that EL is improving on their eye shadow formulas. Their eye shadows look like a great option for me since I am so… so… sick of super shiny shimmery shadows (*cough*Urban Decay*cough*).

    That does look like an excellent shadow for a “neutral” look, to wear in the crease. :)

  7. Wow, a good neutral colour! The qualoty of the EL are pretty good for elder skin, or? The packages never appelaed to me, but I like the understated look EL has.

    Is it similar to MAC’s satin taupe?
