Satin Taupe is without a doubt one of MAC's most raved about eye shadows. After swatching it in store, I knew that I had to have it, but ultimately decided not to purchase it. I dropped a few very 'subtle' hints that I wanted it for Christmas, and ended up getting it. I am so glad I did, because Satin Taupe has very quickly become one of my all time favourite versatile eye shadow shades.
The MAC website describes this as a 'taupe with silver shimmer', but it is so much more than that. It's a darker, kind of brown taupe with subtle purple undertones and a fine silver shimmer. This particular eye shadow is pretty versatile because it can be used as a crease colour, used in the outer V of the lid to deepen a look, or you can apply it all over the lid and a little into the crease and blend out the edges for a quick put together look. Personally, I usually use this in the outer V and a little into the crease.
