MAC Taupe Lipstick

MAC taupe lipstick review

Price : Rs 990

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 Β 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 Β 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.

    Rati the bag and nail polish belong to the same color family na.. I think you tried playing with the colors here like neckpiece and footwear in same color and then changed color of the bag so that it doesnt get too matchy matchy…. I think so … :methinks: :methinks: me trying to read the look and the mind behing it..hihihi.. :methinks: :methinks: :methinks:

  15. Ratiiiiiiiiiii..nice fresh look..btw coming to the lipstick,u know that am a big fan of MAC lookin for a brown..I have mocha..but want something that is browner..out of verve n taupe which one would u suggest?

        1. πŸ˜† :lol2: πŸ˜† :lol2: πŸ˜† :lol2: I know what you will ask in alimony….all of the Inglot eyeshadows from the freedom system :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

  16. me love the shirt and neckpiece too..the shirt is so very feminine. i think i am kinda running out of words to compliment you so will go with my usual awesome, lovely.. :love: :love:

  17. Beautiful look! I love the linen pants. Are they opaque? Some of the linen pants I’ve seen are transparent. πŸ™ All your accessories are gorgeous, particularly the neckpiece and the bag! And taupe is the kind of shade that suits me, but you are right, it is dupe-able. Still MAC is MAC! (Psssst…hope you put it up for one of your clearance sales!!!)

  18. Rati, do you use anything to keep your hair in place? Spray type things? Mine looks fine for the first few minutes and then it all goes haywire!

  19. I loved d shirt, neckpiece, hand bag….. also d nail paints… its superb… :)) looking very pretty Rati :)) :puchhi: :puchhi:

    Good Morning everyone :)) :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

  20. Different and nice look Rati….so apt for our dilli di garmi 😐 😐 it soooo killing me too :headbang: :headbang: :headbang: so all i’m liking now is free n flowy and if not then just AC :hihi: :hihi: :hihi: :hihi: Goodieieie Morninggggggg everyone!!!! :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

  21. aaah i totally adore the look. it looks so comfy. very nice. :puchhi:
    Rati, i am so looking forward for you look with the coral bag..

  22. you are giving a thanda thanda look..only a kala khatta is mising in your hand :toothygrin: actually thats my bestie to beat the summers…lipstick shade is okay okay but i am loving your neckpiece and footwear…linens are the best but i dont like linen shirts 😐 😐

  23. I don’t like you. :waiting: No girl like another girl who can rock an all-white outfit like that. :headbang: Hmph. :waiting:
    And that bag is so beautiful! :drool: :woot: :woot: I have never seen that colour in the Da Milano shop in my city. Perhaps they will introduce pastels now that summer is here but when I went back in January, they had hideous stuff like crocodile greens and terrible greys. :yuck: And man, those linen pants have cool drawstring thingie too! :love: :love: You have a serious talent of spotting cute clothes! πŸ˜›

    1. Correction: “No girl LIKES….”

      My language skills go to the dogs every time I see a pretty outfit. :whistle:

  24. I don’t really know you or anything, but thanks for the review. I’m from New York and I was going lip stick shopping, I was looking for a nude color ( that won’t appear as a nude on me as I am NC 32 ) however it is a beautiful color. Thanks for the review, it looks absolutely compatible with your do and outfit. Hope you do more reviews on lip color.
