MAC Satin Taupe Eyeshadow Swatch

Satin Taupe was one of my first MAC eyeshadows, possibly my very first. It’s the only one that I’ve ever used up completely, as a matter of fact I believe that this is my third one and I’m almost done again. Frost in texture, the slightly plum toned taupe is a great neutral shade. I used to use Satin Taupe along with Mulch and Espresso to create a work friendly smokey eye every single day. As my collection grew and I started to play more with color I forgot about Satin Taupe until now. There is nothing very special about it as it is very dupeable, but it’s the simplicity of it that makes it perfect. Some dupes are Inglot Pearl #402, NYX Mocha, Cover Girl Tapestry Taupe, Wet ‘n Wild Nutty and I’m sure many more.
