Bronzed Taupe

One swipe

 Right: Swatched with finger

Swatch in a different angle
With UDPP pic was on another day

The color is a bit darker than it looks in the picture, I haven't figured out the best lighting for eyeshadow colors yet

Size comparison with L'Oreal HiP eyeshadow duo

What it is:
A long-wearing, pressed pigment

Color Selection: 12 shades

Excuse the blurry-ness, this is a crop of the display picture I posted

- Very pigmented (when applied with finger)
- Easy to blend
- Long-wearing for a powder eyeshadow

- Will crease without a base

$7-9 for 0.12 oz / 3.5 g
I purchased mine at Target for $6.99

Overall: A-
I've heard a lot of people say that this is a dupe of the Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill, which came out earlier this year. I don't own that product, but I've seen swatches and can see why this would be a drugstore equivalent.
The color I purchased is true to its name, a taupe with a lot of brown/bronze in it, very warm-toned. I actually like this color a lot, although I do think the metallic finish could sometimes be too much for day-time.
As far as application goes, this color definitely is more vibrant when applied with your finger, which warms it up. And although it did crease on my eye, it lasted longer (about 4-5 hrs) than any other powder eyeshadow I've tried without a primer on my oily eyelids. With the Urban Decay Primer Potion, it lasted a bit longer without creasing, but still creased after about 7-8 hours. If I didn't have such oily lids, I'd probably give it an A+.

Definitely. If I actually wore eyeshadow on a daily basis I'd definitely get more colors.

Would I recommend it?


  1. I went to CVS hoping to get it but this shade is already gone...At least it makes me feel a little better to hear that this is warm toned (brown/bronze look weird on me ) so I might not be missing out too much.

  2. This is the first shade I wanted but I can't find it anywhere! Deciding to just get Iced Latte instead :/

  3. @ Citrine check Target? My Target seems to be well-stocked

    @ Maggie Aw :( have you checked your Target? I am not sure if I want to try any other shades yet since I really don't wear eyeshadow enough lol
