There is a reason Satin Taupe is on many people’s “must have” list when it comes to MAC eye shadows. It is a classic shade that is very wearable and works with so many different colours (it can look more purple, more grey or more brown depending on what it’s paired with). Makes for a great “one eyeshadow” look – add some black liner and you look put-together and appropriate.
Satin Taupe is a medium brown with subtle warm orange undertones and a gray-ish tinge. It doesn’t look like the permanent Satin Taupe at all. It had decent color payoff but it was a little dry. Guerlain Turandot is darker. Dior Fairy Golds is also darker.
