I pick up Style Snob from the new Starflash collection the other day and I immediately thought about my other taupey babies in the family so I wanted to do a comparison :) I'm always a big fan of taupey colors and my all time fave is the infamous MAC Satin Taupe. A metal, brownish taupe that MAC has it in every holiday smoky eye palette(I happened to have 3).
NARS single eye shadow Ashes to Ashes is a close dupe for Satin Taupe, just a bit less pigmented and a little less brown. One of my favorite NARS eye shadow.
NARS Cairo is a lighter and warmer taupe that can work as highlighter on darker skin tone. It's hard to describe this color... I use it all over the lid for a casual day.
MAC Style Snob looks similar to Satin Taupe from outside but definitely has more purple and pink when swatch on skin. I was immediately drawn to this color when I saw the collection. Haven't tried it on my eyes but I know it's gonna be gorgeous!
There are some other taupes in my collection, like MAC Sweet Sienna pigment(similar to Satin Taupe), MAC Family Silver(taupey silver), and MAC Shale(taupey purple) are also my favorites :)
