Wow, I do have alot of taupes, huh? Oh well! What can I say? They are my favorite and can be worn in so many different ways! Here is part three of this four part little series, featuring MAC taupes! Now of course, considering this is MAC, and they are limited edition happy, some of these may or may not still be available... Either way, they are still pretty taupe colors! Enjoy!

Style Snob: With the flash, this color looks more like a pinky-taupe. It is rather shimmery, yet looks very pretty either on the lid with a more toned down color in the crease, or to blend out the crease for a darker smokey eye.
Satin Taupe: This is your very basic straight up taupe eyeshadow. I think almost everyone owns this one. In my opinion, even though it's nice, it's totally overrated. I mean, like I said, it's nice but it definitely isn't anything special. It is a staple color to have though as it can be very useful to add depth and definition to many different looks.
Magnetic Fields: Now this one, I love! It is a dark brown-taupe, with the most subtle silvery sparkle. It is pretty nicely pigmented, and looks amazing in so many different ways. It was released a few years ago, but you can probably still find it online somewhere. It really doesn't look very amazing in pictures, or even in the pan, but trust me, it is absolutely beautiful on the eye!
Omega: This is definitely another staple shadow from MAC. If you don't have it, I definitely recommend you go out and get it! It looks so boring in the pan, but it is so, so versatile! It's basically kind of a light dirty gray-brown color, but it definitely fits in the taupe category. My taupe category, anyway! You can use this to fill in your brows if you have light to medium hair, and it is the perfect crease color for either a very light neutral lid, or a dark smokey eye. Seriously, try it if you haven't already and you'll see what I mean!
Mystery: This is another brown-taupe. It's kind of on the plummy side and is pretty dark, but applied with a light hand, it blends beautifully, and works well with pretty much any other neutral shadow! The finish is a satin, but it almost looks a bit more matte.
Smut: This is another one of my favorites! It's a grayish dark browny taupe that is simply fabulous. It's pretty plain looking in the pan, yet it does have this je-ne-sais-quoi... It has a very, very subtle teeny tiny shimmer, but once it's on your eye, it looks more like a subtle satin finish bordering a matte finish. It looks so amazing on! On the lid, the crease, the outer corner, lower lashline... Anywhere!
What is your favorite taupe eyeshadow from MAC? Do you have any of these? What do you think of them? I'd love to know!!
