Chanel Soft Touch Eyeshadow Taupe Grise 87 Review, Photos, Swatches, Tutorial

Chanel Ombre a Paupieres Mono Douceur/Ombre Esssentielle /  Soft Touch Eyeshadow Single Taupe Grise is a part of Chanel’s Fall 2010 collection. It is a true taupe colour. You would see the hues of brown, gray and mauve in it.

Price : Rs 1650

It’s an easy to wear colour for me because I love wearing neutrals.

I loooovee the shade. I have worn it so many times already. The texture of Chanel eye shadows is super smooth. They blend easily, barely have a fall out and look fresh all day long. Chanel Taupe Grisé is one of the classic colour. You can just wear it as a single wash of colour on your lids or can mix and match it with different shades. The pigment of , Chanel Taupe Grisé eyeshadow is pretty strong and just a swipe of colour gives you beautiful pigment to work with.

Chanel Taupe Grisé has a satiny finish – it’s neither matte nor shimmery. Another interesting thing that I like about this shade is that it looks different in different lights. Sometimes it looks more brown, sometimes it shows its mauve undertones and sometimes the grey undertone becomes prominent. Love it for it is and it one of the “must haves” if you love neutrals.

Played with Chanel Taupe Grise eyeshadow a little. I generally like to apply it all over the lid but in the following look I have also used the pearly white eyeshadow.

This is how I created the eye  look:

  • Step 1:Apply primer on your lids
  • Step 2 Apply brown eyeliner on the upper lash line and smudge it with Chanel Taupe Grise eyeshadow.
  • Step 3 : Apply Chanel Taupe Grise on the outer two third of the lid.
  • Step 4: Apply pearly white eyeshadow on the inner third of the lid and blend it lightly with the Chanel Taupe Grise so that no edges are visible.
  • Step 4: Apply Chanel Taupe Grise on the outer two third of the lower lash liner and pearly white eyeshadow on the inner third.
  • Step 6: Curl lashes and apply mascara.
  • Step 7 (optional) before curling lashes you may also define your upper lash line with a gel liner.

      And I really wonder why girls change their dressing preferences after marriage. We men expect that the clothes would become skimpier and they become longer and hide more. 😛 😛 😛

Ohhh..its the other way for me…my dear darling hubby came for the girl-seeing thing (arranged marriage you see) after seeing an absolutely horrid sari-clad photo of mine..and now after marriage he claims he has been cheated :devil: :devil: :devil: What I am trying to say is I look really pretty now..hehehhehehehee :devil: :devil: :devil:

    1. Inglot is a good brand….I dont have Chanels n MACs n ELs but I hv a Inglot e/s and its really nice…and a palette of 3 for 1200 is a good deal….planning to get one in future…god knws whn it will open in mumbai

    2. Sree there is no dupe of this eyeshadow. I searched and searched the internet like mad people. but there was a limited edition mac eyeshadow that was closer…

  5. You really shouldnt put that kind of a comment Rati..earlier when I used to be the decent kind who never comments on blogs…I always used to wonder why you say that. Now I am wiser, but I still wish you won’t say that :-(( :-((

  6. saw rima’s and cynthia’s e/s palette post..finally Inglot is in my town!!!yipeee :clap: :clap: otherwise i would have had to ask my “reluctant” guy to get me sme stuff from Inglot in Delhi!! :giggle: :giggle:
    planning to go for a major haul from there!!loved the lip paint review by Rati as well!!i guess they would do as good MAC dupes too right??

    1. he he no it is not but i have a very cute mangalsutra also . i wear it sometimes. 🙂 mangalsutra is black beads and gold thing. I have pearl and stones also in it. :))

  9. I don’t think thats what a mangalsutra would be Deb…it would have black beads in it and is usually silver…thats the North Indian one…South Indians have gold usually.

    1. :P:P we south indians lou our gold no? :cute: thankfully, i got not louing my gold from mumma. 😛 you know she wears kajal and lipbalm and perfume. THATS ALL. sometimes no kajal also. 😐 :pain: :pain:

        @rads, oh i reckon that, but i thought Rati is Sikh thats why i thought it might be dif =/

        If i am not mistaken in the Delhi meet pics i thought Poormina was wearing the same lookalike pendant, maybe just some cool fashion for delhites 😛 😎 :silly: :silly: :silly: :silly: :cute: :cute: :cute: :cute: :sidefrown: :sidefrown: :sidefrown: :sidefrown: :wilt: :wilt: :wilt: :wilt: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

  14. needless to say .. as already so much has been said about ur luk.. Rati.. simply AWESUM… the eyeshadow is superb n ur whole luk is just gorgeous.. :-* :-*
    everytime i see ur luk.. i’ll go bak n chk all the reviews done by u on ur Foundations… n then get confUUsedddd.. so plz suggest just 1 best foundation na.. MF or MAC.. whtever but just 1 as there’s no use buying all of them togteher… 😛
    i tooo hav dry skin… do reply… 🙂

    1. Thank you Nids.

      If you want a full coverage foundation, go for age renew. And by god! it never looks cakey.

      And if you want a medium coverage foundation, i love mac mineralize spf 15. :))

      MAC one you can wear easily during the day. It gives that dewy kind of a finish and is very natural looking. 🙂

      1. thankuu thanku for the quick reply… wud go for MF then 😀 … coz i dont apply foundations every day..need 1 for occasions only … n MAC only has 1 store here in hyd n tht too is too far off frm my place.. wud luv to pick tht up tooo 😛 … definitely bt nt nw.. i think..
        even i am nt able to find COLORBAR here any where.. want their i-glide pencils n even thinking of trying their conceler too.. for the 1st time.. bt stilll searching.. 🙁

  15. Heyy Nids..Gaea was wearing the MF Age Renew foundation the day we met..and its fabulous..actually naa..the photos don’t do justice at all to her. Her makeup was superb but the stupid pics didnt show anything.

    1. ohh okkk.. the pics were gud radhika.. i cud see her glowing in them tooo… :-))
      so she too using tht foundation.. i am gonna pick it up for sure .. 2 beautiful ladies doing justice to it.. so wht further proof reqd.. 😉 😛

  16. one curious cat na..I kept asking her what is this..what is that..what have you used blah blah blah. She must have been like…how did I ever agree to meet this mad cap!! I feel though you should go to the counter and tell them to put it on..then walk around for the whole day..then you will get good idea about how good it is..if possible that is 🙂

      1. lol..yeah!! I was in fact ok with my avatar… (Don’t see much difference even now. There I had plaster stuck over my mouth, here I have covered it with my hand!! 😯 😯 😯 noticed it just now!! :-/ :-/ )… Radhika’s Avtar was hilarious. More than the creature itself, I was laughing on the expression it hold of clasping the hands and looking with that weird looks.. :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:
        .-= calicoaster´s last blog ..Bath Scrubs to Treat And Renew Your Body =-.

        1. Cali..hehehehee…I had just commented somewhere else we are safe now 😀 And then you say that thing about hand on your mouth..and now I am :rotfl: :rotfl: I knowwwww….I thought my pic was the worst. And you know what, I had left these crying wailing comments on all posts asking her to take off the insects, and Insiya was asking me what insects, I dont see any insects. I wanted to hit my head..this clever creature Rati..she tricked me into looking like the world class idiot that I am anyway!!!

            1. You all should meet my mom..and she will give you a lecture on what is cute and what is human…I just hope she never ever finds out I put this pic on public display..she hates me wrinkling my face like that 😀

  17. You look really beautiful Rati.. Perfect eyes and awesome look.. 🙂

    Totally love the shade :inlove: have to buy :inlove: :inlove:
