Chanel the savior.
My Go To Brand.
The Brand that can do no wrong.
Chanel Releases a single eye shadow called Taupe Grisé and lo and behold it is not only a dupe for MAC Moth Brown. It is BETTER than Moth Brown.
Let me tell you why it is better (in my opinion so don’t write me nasty e-mails exclaiming that MAC is the be all end all in eye shadow and I’m a makeup snob and blah blah blah)
- The pigmentation is about a zillion times better than MAC Moth Brown
- Chanel Ombre Essentielle Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Taupe Grisé is a matte/satin with no frost. MAC Moth Brown is frosty which can make it look sheer at times
- Chanel Ombre Essentielle Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Taupe Grisé blends better into other shadows
- Chanel Taupe shadow is softer in the pan and has less powder fall out
- It is CHANEL!
Here are comparison swatches
See what I mean?
If you don’t get my point from looking at the picture I can only assume one of four things.
a) You are blind
b) You are not addicted to taupe
c) Your monitor settings are off
d) You are NOT my friend
e) All of the above
So there you have it. Chanel Ombre Essentielle Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Taupe Grisé is a superior Taupe to any and every other purple taupe on the market now or in the past. You NEED this taupe. You need it like a fish needs a bicycle and a feminist needs a man. Oh wait. That’s not right. You need this like you need oxygen. That’s better!
No seriously. Chanel Ombre Essentielle Soft Touch Eyeshadows are so wonderfully pigmented, so wonderfully soft and have such great staying power they are worth the price. There are a few shades that you could find less expensive looking dupes, but nothing will meet the level of quality in my opinion. Chanel Ombre Essentielle Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Taupe Grisé is worth the cost for the reasons mentioned above, but also because it is a flattering shade on almost anyone. You can use it as a crease color, as an all over color, as a liner for a smokey eye. It’s versatile and pretty enough to use every day. (Almost) I do love this color. I am crazy. But you all knew that already.
