Taupe Tuesdays! - Urban Decay Shakedown.

Eeegads, sorry for another late-night Taupe Tuesday! My photo-editing program was going wonkers on me tonight, thus delaying this entry (and a couple of others).

Anyways, onto Taupe Tuesday..ish!

Today's shadow comes from Urban Decay (second time on TT, I believe). Shakedown is a part of the matte line of shadows. If you're looking for a mate taupe, this would be a winner in my book:

The texture of these are unbelievable. Matte shadows can be pretty tricky to work with in general. But these Urban Decay mattes are very silky, glide on smoothly and are easy to blend.

The shade itself, contrary to what is photographed above, is a neutral, brown taupe (unfortunately it photographed a little warmer than what it looks like in real life). I've used this on the lid for easy-going days, and most recently in the crease when I do a neutral eye for work (yes, even though that has been 3 weeks ago).

I highly recommend Urban Decay's matte shadows, this is only my first one but I plan on getting a few others in the future. They retail for $16 and can be found wherever Urban Decay is sold :)

I love Urban Decay matte shadows! I wish they'd make more colors.

I am such a taupewhore! I've actually been eyeing this UD shade for a while now (I love how finely milled their matte eyeshadows are) and I think you just pushed me over the line...must get it!
