Beauty VIP of the Week: Chanel Taupe Gris Eyeshadow

Chanel’s Taupe Gris eyeshadow for fall is nothing short of spectacular. It’s a Beauty VIP for being my go-to all week and I suspect it will be a forever favorite of mine. I’ve been majorly sleeping in all week, which means I’ve had to condense my morning routine. Taupe Gris gives you the complexity of a well thought-out eye makeup look in the simplest possible way. All over the lid, just in the crease, smoked out over liner — it can do it all. And this week, for me, it did.

The swatch above was taken in sunlight. For me, this pulls very purple but in the sun it appears more brown. I couldn’t be happier with this eyeshadow.

  1. That’s a pretty color. It looks fairly similar to Nars Ondine, a purpleish brown. How do they compare?

  2. Hi Lucy! Isn’t it fabulous? This week I skimped on a highlighter and just used a base (UDPP Eden!). But my favorite highlighter that I use constantly is NARS Abysinnia. Best ever.

    Virginia, NARS Ondine is a favorite of mine. It’s much lighter in comparison and is a lighter purple with gold sparkles. It’s less taupe and more actual purple (with brown undertones). Taupe Gris has a more satin look, no sparkles and on some people, isn’t even purple! They would compliment each other well, but wouldn’t say they compare. Perfect excuse to own both:)

  3. Rose, I am a pink girl – so I do a nice rose lip or pinky nude. Been wearing my MAC Cremesheens a lot with this! But it’s pretty versatile, so you could really do anything.
