Taupe leaning brown e/s with a lil shimmer, MAC preferred

I am looking for a darker toned brown with a little bit of gray in it, think taupe but leaning brown, with a little bit of shimmer.

(I am trying to replicate a SB palette color). Prefer a non-frost and non-matte finish, somewhere in-between.


Does MAC make one like this? LE or GC

the color your describing sounds a lot like MAC's satin taupe, except that I'm pretty sure that satin taupe is a frost. Maybe copperplate by MAC would also work? Maybe you can find something similar in urban decay? If you depot the round urban decay shadows, they will fit into your MAC palette. Hope I was of some help!

There's French Grey (Satin / LE) which is a very warm 'grey'
Quarry is permanent, but it's matte.
Remotely Grey (Satin / LE) which looks brown in the pot, but grey on skin
If you are considering Satin Taupe, you might also look at Prepped for Glamour (LE /Satin), which was slightly darker.

thanks for all the replies--I have been layering Bold & Brazen over Knight Divine and that almost works. I tried a Clinique neutral gray color over Bold & Brazen and that worked even better.

Now to track down Era, Copperplate and Quarry. I have a French Cuff on the way.

Adding Satin Taupe, Prepped For Glamour and Remotely Gray. I can seriously fill a 15 pan with grays and be perfectly happy doing it...

Satin Taupe! I believe it's a frost finish, but it definitely doesn't veer into metallic/glitter-bomb territory, and is incredibly wearable both as a lid and crease colour. Must-have.
