Quick Taupes

Between Fyrinnae’s Damn Paladins and Concrete Mineral’s Lolita, I’m quickly becoming fond of taupes. I put together a quick look with taupes today, though I’m not happy with the liner that I ended up using. I think I probably should have just stuck to black, since it’s my preference, instead of greys.

Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Fyrinnae Damn Paladins – inner 1/2 of lid and inner lower lash line and inner 3/4 of crease
Concrete Minerals Lolita – outer 1/2 of lid and outer lower lash line and outer 1/2 of crease blended inward
Fyrinnae Ancient Mirage – on browbone to highlight
Morgana Graphite – to deepen outer 1/4 of crease
Maybelline Charcoal Gel Liner – upper lash line
Cover Girl Silver Spark Pencil – lower water line
MAC Plumage – to define brows
Hard Candy 1000 lashes Primer
Flirt! It Curls mascara

DuWop blush in Watermelon
Hard Candy blush in Pinup – to contour a bit

Meow Pampered Puss foundation in Inquisitive Siamese

Nyx lipliner in Currant – to lightly line and fill in lips
MAC Lipglass in Wrong Spell

I promise you I will be reviewing Hard Candy 1000 Lashes Primer, as well as Flirt! It Curls Mascara soon, as I really like both and as you can see from the picture above, I get good results with both. Or at least, I feel I get good results. And OMG I need to make an appointment to get my brows waxed! They’re driving me crazy! I’ve just been so busy with work I haven’t had time to do that.

      I know I’ve said it before, but it’s worth saying again: I love Damn Paladins, and it looks great on you!

      • Phyrra

        Thank you! It’s got that perfect light blue highlight.

      You really do look gorgeous!

      • Phyrra

        Thanks A! *hug*

      I like the grey! I usually do things-other-than-black, so it’s nice to see it incorporated into people’s looks!

      • Phyrra

        Sometimes I like it, othertimes I go ‘doh! I should have been darker.

      what? that liner looks really nice!

      • Phyrra

        I just felt like it wasn’t enough contrast for my eyes.

      Your look is beautiful! I am a devoted lurker.
      I have a question about the Fyrinnae eye shadow Damn Paladins. The website describes it as taupe with a blueish tinge, how blue is it? Is it a true blue or does it have a greenish/teal shift? I really do love taupes but blue does NOT suit me at all and I was wondering if you can clear this up for me. I have very fair skin with yellow undertones and green eyes. Thanks in advance, I hope this isnt a bother!

      • Phyrra

        It has a light blue, maybe pale aqua? no green to it to my eyes.

      Look very nice . The grey liner isn’t bad , but maybe a darker one gives a little more depth to your beautiful eyes :) , but it’s really gorgeous!!

      • Phyrra

        Thanks Olivai! Exactly :)

      You look gorgeous! Love the lip color!

      • Phyrra

        Thank you Gio! I really liked Wrong Spell too.
        I’m trying to figure out what lipsticks would be best to layer it on top of.

    • lillypug

      Lip color looks really good on you. Prettiness. ;)

      Can’t wait to hear your reviews.

      • Phyrra

        Thank you Lilly!

      Gorgeous as usual :)
      I think the grey liner looks good on you!

      • Phyrra

        Thanks Morrigan!

      I love taupes too, especially with a deeper lip like this look! Wrong Spell is fabulous!

      • Phyrra

        Thanks Thia!

      It looks pretty awesome paired up with that gloss!

      • Phyrra

        Thanks Mindy! I <3 the gloss.

      Damn Paladins + lock shirt = lol

      • Phyrra

        Haha I was wondering if someone would catch that!

    • http://kathyfuckingjacobs.blogspot.com Kathy

      I love it! Wrong Spell works great with that eye!

      • Phyrra

        Thanks Kathy!

      I’m always surprised by the greys and browns, they aren’t colors I usually buy (I’m such a blues and greens girl!). But they always look so nice!

      Also, nice Legendary ‘lock shirt…is it bad that I knew what it was just by the corner? :D

      • Phyrra

        Yay thanks! And definitely not bad to know the lock shirt :)

      I’ve been surprised to find myself loving taupes lately as well. I started making my own eyeshadows, and was playing around with several silver based shadows, and at first my favorite one was the sparkliest, but my current favorite is the taupiest. Yes, I just said “taupiest”. I like to pair it with plums and violets.

    • Krista

      You look amazing!!!

      • Phyrra

        Thank you Krista!

      each time I see damn paladins, i think i need it more. A fyrinnae order is in my near future. Looks gorgeous on you,

      • Phyrra

        You do you do! Thanks Nina!

    • Pleshette

      Those taupes look absolutely beautiful on you.

      • Phyrra

        Thanks Pleshette

      I love this look on you!

      • Phyrra

        Wow, thanks Gouldlylox :)

      I like the grey liner, it gives the eye a much softer feel. Black would look gorgeous, but always nice to mix it up a bit. LOVE the lippy on you.

      • Phyrra

        Aww thanks Cin!
        I’m totally in love with the lippy.

    • Invicta

      Damn Paladins is growing on me, I haven’t used it very often & I learned that I don’t like it at all when used over Pixie Epoxy but I’ll give it another try tomorrow. I think grey liner worked well with the subdued eye look especially considering the wine colored lip gloss. And I didn’t notice your brows until I read the end of the post! :))

      • Phyrra

        I like using it on the upper crease too, as a transition color. Works great that way.

    • http://roxcat.net/blog/ roxcat

      Beautiful look! And I think the grey liner looks nice as it is. When I place an order with Fyrinnae I’ll probably pick up Damn Paladins, it seems to be a pretty and useful shade.

      • Phyrra

        Yes definitely!

    • http://silhouettescreams.blogspot.com SilhouetteScreams

      I like the grey liner, I think it works really well with the grey tones of the taupes :)

      • Phyrra

        Thanks Silhouette!

      Beautiful! I’m a taupe-aholic. I love foiled taupe eyeshadow with a deep, almost black purple lip.

      • Phyrra

        Oooh I bet that would be awesome!
