Taupe Tuesday! - Bed Head Taupe

I am sooooooo excited for today's Taupe Tuesday...
I may have found it.....my HG taupe?
Maybe....just maybe...

I picked up today's star over this weekend with my cousin whom I mentioned in my previous entry. She took me to a store called Cosmoprof. I'm sure it's a pretty well-known store, unfortunately, you do need a license to purchase from them. Fortunately for me, I have a cousin that loves me ;)

We both picked up some hair stuff (I wanted to try out the Rockaholic Dry Shampoo from TIGI) and some nail stuff (I found China Glaze Recycle!!!!!!!!!!! The most perfect gray creme that I've been lusting after for so long!!! It was the last one on the shelf, too!). We were about to check out when I noticed the Bed Head cosmetics display by it's lonesome in the corner. Bed Head (also from TIGI) Cosmetics, surprisingly, has a pretty nice range of products. From lips, eyes, cheeks, foundations and brushes. There were about 10-15 single shadows and a few 4-pan palettes. The colors were very pretty but this was the obvious one that stood out:


Just simply....
Taupe.

Words....cannot describe how perfect this shadow is. It's really, in my own opinion, the most perfect taupe that I've come across. The formula is wonderful, smooth and silky, rivals the likes of MAC easily.



Now....can we talk about the color?

It's really the most perfect taupe I've come across. Not too silver, not too brown, not too plum:



I don't have anything that comes quite as close to this. I should have bought a dozen of these. I foresee myself going through this like water.

I tried to google the hell out of this to try and find a link somewhere that you could purchase this, however, I failed. I'm not so sure where you could get this online, and you might be able to find them at a salon (TIGI has a salon finder here). And if you have a friend with a cosmetology license- be extra nice to them and hit them up for favor. At a store like Cosmoprof you'll get well under retial (I paid $7). EDIT: I found an online retailer here, I don't know the validity of the site, but at least it's a start!

Me and my friend tried the tigi rockaholics dry shampoo. It works okay, but it runs out QUICK. the packaging is some sort of leak in it. Ive heard a LOT of bad reviews on this, but i thought i might try it. And to my surprise? It was ALL true. Tell me how it goes for u! I've heard better dry shampoos out there for a MUCH better price.

Thank you for posting the bed head taupe. I've seen this brand at a local beauty store; and after seeing your swatch. I bought it; retails for around $14.99; had a discount and got it for $3.

And taupe has become my fav e/s color. can't wait till the next taupe Tuesday :D
