The Essentials #8 is a medium-dark, taupe with a soft, frosted sheen and subtle, cool undertones. It had so-so color payoff, but it was buildable. Chanel Gri-Gri (101) (LE, $28.50) is slightly grayer. Urban Decay Juju (LE, $20.00) is similar but a cream product. MAC Vintage Selection (P, $18.50) is a cream product. Giorgio Armani Terra Sienna #2 (P) is cooler-toned. See comparison swatches.
