Taupe is a matte finish lipstick. MAC describes it as muted reddish taupe brown.
Taupe is a matte finish reddish brown lip color. It reminds me of MAC Mocha when I see it in a tube. But Mocha has more peachy undertones than reddish tones to it. Taupe is a gorgeous MLBB shade for medium to dusky skin tones. On fait skin tones it may be very brownish. It looks like a soft brown on me. If I have to pick up a to go n*de color for my NC 35 skin tone, I’d go for taupe. It does not wash out color from my face, and gives that soft polished look to the lips. I like to pair it with medium intensity eye makeup and lots of peachy or earthy toned blushes.
The staying power is around 4+ hours on me. It does not dry out my lips even though it is a matte finish lipstick. You would have to apply a gloss on top of it if you want a bit of moisture on your lips or add that refreshing look to your face. On its own it s completely flat and it does need a bit of color on the rest of the face to give that uplifted look. It goes on smoothly and does not smudge or smear.
Overall it is a very sophisticated color. It is an excellent shade for office goers. Easy to pull off and great for wheatish skin tones. Although, not a must have because you would be able to find such shades in our local brands as well.
