Workhorse Cosmetics: Dior One Couleur Eyeshadow in Trendy Taupe

Posted by Lipglossiping On April - 16 - 2011

workhorse: noun. Something, such as a machine, that performs dependably under heavy or prolonged use.

Dior’s One Couleur Eyeshadow in Trendy Taupe is one of my go-to shades for deepening the crease.  It works well paired with anything I’ve matched it up to and blends without too much argument or swearing (from me).

Other than that… well, in all honesty, it’s completely un-exciting.  But I wouldn’t be without it.

The pigmentation is light but buildable which means that I don’t end up with “WOAH! PANDA EYES” whenever I attempt anything smoky.

Dior’s One Couleur Eyeshadow in Trendy Taupe is priced at £19.50 (ouch) and available online from House Of Fraser.  I can’t remember if it’s limited edition but I didn’t see it online at Boots.

Anyone else suffer from the dreaded black eye effect when attempting to go smoky?

    Is it insane that I find this shade somewhat exciting? I have a taupe addiction.

      I’m completely with you – I almost go a little misty eyed when walking past the mushroom selection in the vegetable isle. Also, dead rodents are suddenly admirable, in this light of colour ogling.

    Yes – to your final comment, all the time,I am cack handed at the best of times and to make it worse anything which has plum, or dark as a prefix is black on my eyes and the blackest of black which means that my eyes then just look…well holes in the snow comes to mind. But this has that glorious minkiness to it. Very nice. Jan x
