Cool Taupe is a muted, medium-dark taupe-brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. The pigmentation was good, but it wasn't fully opaque, and the texture was dusty, even though it was silky to the touch, which resulted in it sheering out slightly. It was very blendable, at least, and I think it built-up better than some of the other dusty mattes in the palette. This shade wore well for seven hours on me.
