While spring-cleaning few weeks ago, I was greeted by a plush velvety pouch hiding beneath the rubble that is makeup, ugh! But seriously, how did it skip my radar? I knew I took photos but for some twist of fate, it just vanished into oblivion. Sounds like a big deal ha?
See, how can you not admire this beauty?
Encased in a luxe and mirrored chrome packaging with distinctive Burberry plaid design, this sheer eye shadow is a must-have for those who favor earthy neutrals day-in and out.
Taupe Brown No. 07 ($29, 2.5g/ 0.88 oz) is straight up grayish brown from the pan to peepers. It is semi-matte, buttery-smooth, and with commendable wear time. Over primer, it held up to seven hours before it started to fade. It has moderate pigmentation but is undoubtedly buildable if you prefer a more smoky look.
I’m all for easy, fool-proof, one-color smoky eyes so for my makeup below, I applied Taupe Brown on my lids quite a few times to build the color. Then with a crease brush, I blended it out to create a soft-sheer transitional effect. I also smudged my lower lash line with the same color. For finishing touches, I tight-lined my upper lash line with black liner, used a bronze eyeliner for my waterline, and applied mascara on my upper and bottom lashes. Trust me, this eye makeup can be done in five minutes or less!
Okay spill the deets, have you forgotten some of your makeups? I’m 1000% sure I’m not alone!
