Satin Taupe is simply that classic cult eyeshadows that (almost) everybody likes, and once I tried it, I understood why. The color is beautiful, but lighter once applied than in the pan (more of light-medium taupe than medium dark). The shifts in the color are unique. It's mostly a neutral smokey-taupe, a mix of grey and brown, with a hint of purple... it depends on the lightning, what other colors is paired with. I am light-medium warm yellow toned, with brown hair and eyes, and on me it mostly shows a neutral brown, I also love how versatile it is. I can play around with pigmentation (depending on the brush and techniques I use) to get a soft blend all over the eyes; I can pack to a deeper pigmentation. I can also create new shifts of color depending on the eyeshadow I use as a base (for more complex looks). I'm rarely a fan of shimmers (especially in the crease), but the shimmers in Satin Taupe are tiny and workable. The eyeshadow is a little powdery in the pan, and it can have some fallout during application. I usually tap the brush a little, to remove excess. I never noticed fallout during the day. Still, the eyeshadow has something creamy in the pan. It has a good color pay-off, but I would describe it as buildable rather than pigmented/opaque.

What a beautiful and useful color! I avoided this one in the past because I couldn't see how this frosted color could work on me. I don't normally like using shimmery colors in my crease, but I finally broke down and bought it based on reviews. I'm so glad I did! This looks absolutely gorgeous as a crease color. It is extremely pigmented with excellent color payoff. It's frosted, but in a more subtle way. The color stayed on perfectly all day (note: I always use a primer under all eyeshadow). I own a lot of eyeshadows, and Satin Taupe is now my favorite.

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.
