MAC Satin Taupe Eye Shadow

I can't believe it took me so long to buy MAC's Satin Taupe eye shadow. It's a beautiful colour and one that I should have bought years ago. MAC describe this as a taupe brown with silvery bronze shimmer. It's a Frost formula.
I've been wearing this nearly every day since I bought it. I use it as an all over wash, as a crease colour and as an eye liner. 
Satin Taupe is a cool, shimmery taupe. The texture feels soft and creamy. It's lovely to apply, goes on smoothly and doesn't crease. This is one of my no fail colours, I know that it will always look good and it's easy to use.

Would I buy it again? Yes, it's a beautiful, versatile colour.

Ingredients: talc, zinc stearate, octyldodecyl stearoyl stearate, isostearyl neopentanoate, tocopheryl acetate, caprylyl clycol, hexylene glycol, phenoxyethanol.
May contain: silica, mica, titanium dioxide (ci 77891), iron oxides (ci 77491, ci 77492, ci 77499), bismuth oxychloride (ci 77163), blue 1 lake (ci 42090), carmine (ci 75470), chromium hydroxide green (ci 77289), chromium oxide greens (ci 77288), ferric ferrocyanide (ci 77510), manganese violet (ci 77742), red 40 lake (ci 16035), ultramarines (ci 77007), yellow 5 lake (ci 19140).


  1. I loved it in the pot, but it turned muddy and bruisy on me. On my sister, it's WOW!

  2. Sounds gorgeous, I love a natural taupe eyeshadow for a simple daytime makeup look :)

  3. Hello! I also want to try this shade but I'm kind of hesitant because a lot of people say that it is close to wet n' wild's nutty. Are they?

    1. We don't have wet n' wild here in Australia so I'm not sure, sorry.
