Taupe Series #1- Napoleon Perdis Color Disc 40 Irid. Taupe

Once upon a time, I owned absolutely zero taupe eyeshadows. I was convinced in my naivete, that because I looked horrid in any clothing and lip colors with any brown tones, that that same principle applied to my eyes as well. However, after hearing again and again on the makeup boards how so many people loved taupe eyeshadows, and seeing that Sephora was clearing out their entire stock of Napoleon Perdis, I hemmed and hawed and eventually went home with a color disc in #40, Irid. Taupe for the bargain price of $6.
 To my surprise of course, I actually liked it, and thus, my obsession with taupes got its start. Of course now, it's one of the less impressive taupes in my stash, but it was my first, and so, I kick off this series with this lone shadow. Despite the makeup board's general dislike for this brand, I found this shadow to be quite nice. It's soft, smooth, and decently pigmented. It blends quite nicely, and I rather like it, even if I have never felt any real urge to buy more shadows from this brand (I feel like it's a bit overpriced at it's regular retail price.)
Irid. Taupe is, despite it's misleading name, not actually iridescent at all (or particularly taupe for that matter) While it does technically fall into the category of taupe, it has definite pink tones to it on my skin (currently something like nc25). At my current skin tone, it is only a fraction darker than my skin when applied to my lids. I will mostly use it to blend other colors now, but when I'm paler, I like to use it as a quick wash of color when I'm lazy or pressed for time.

Since it is the first of the taupes, I'm drawing a slight blank on shades to compare it to (I want to compare it to RBR Gracious Arasari, but it's currently floating around somewhere in my room). As I swatch more taupes, I may revisit old ones for comparison. Feel free to ask if you want any compared to shades you may find similar.

NARS Realm of the Senses and Soulshine Blush Palette Swatches and Comparisons

 I got the new NARS palettes today from Sephora. Each comes with 3 colors and a NARS logo emblazoned across the shades in gold overspray.
Here are swatches of Realm of the Senses;Left, Right, Bottom, and swirled together. According to Sephora, Realm of the Senses palette includes a flirty, sheer peach; shimmering bronzed rose; and sparkling gold sand. 

 I compared these to some of the existing blushes to see if there were any dupes...the peachy pink shade was similar to Deep Throat and Orgasm, but was brighter, and a bit more flattering than any of the existing shades. Lovejoy looked pretty spot on for the right shade.
 Soulshine swatches; Left, Right, Bottom, and swirled together. According to Sephora, Soulshine palette features a peachy pink with gold shimmer; a sheer golden apricot; and a soft rose tone with golden shimmer.


 Again I compared these to existing shades. Soulshine L is pinker than O, Soulshine R is peachier/brighter than Luster, and bottom shade is a bit redder than Outlaw, but not by much. New blushes seem a lot softer than the old formulation so it's possible shades have changed since I bought my full sized ones.

Guerlain Bois de Rose

I've accumulated quite a few Guerlain quads at this point, and for good reason; Guerlain has really stepped up their game since they redid their 4 pan eyeshadows. Today I have swatches of Bois de Rose for you guys.
 Bois de Rose contains 4 smooth, pigmented shades; a dark brown with some subtle blue shimmer, a very light frosty pink that is nearly white when swatched on my skin, a rose shade with shite shimmer, and a lovely taupe shade. The quality of this quad is excellent, and well worth the price, though personally, the color combination is not one I prefer on myself. For this reason, this is probably my least favorite out of the quads I own. There's nothing wrong with the quad itself; it's just not one I reach for often.

Burberry Hydrangea Pink and Coral Pink

I picked up both blushes from Burberry Spring in order to make sure that I still had a full set of Burberry blushes. The new releases from spring are called Hydrangea Pink (bright blue-based pink) and Coral pink (a warm bright-ish pink). Both have the same finely milled texture and easy blendability as the rest of the line. Both are great colors, but out of the two, I prefer Coral Pink as it is more versatile and flattering in my opinion.
