Today, I’ll review the NYX eye shadows Taupe and True Taupe! Siblings in the name but the shades are quite different. Taupe is more yellow while True taupe has more grey and red in it.

I have to disclose that I bought these because I like to make my eyelids look even and smooth. These too colours work well together to make it even and add some difference as well. My swatches appear too washed out on my skin so I will re-take the swatches soon and re upload them so that you can see the colour better.

The best way to describe these two shades is that they come before and after Urban Decay’s Buck. Taupe on the yellow side and True Taupe on the more brown and grey side.

The pigmentation isn’t brilliant but it’s not bad. The colours apply well over the lid. There is no creasing and they stay put for at least 6 hours. Quality wise I found both of them to be almost same although for me, True taupe gives slightly better pay off than Taupe.

Photo’s and swatches below!

 

Taupe is on the left and True Taupe on the right.
