MAC Style Snob & Satin Taupe Comparisons

July 28, 2009

Taking a quick break from the Essentials & Tools series today. I normally don’t post much about MAC, but the recent Love That Look collection has me all over the new Style Snob Starflash Eyeshadow. I know many have asked how this compares to other colors, so I thought I’d do a comparison post of colors that in my mind could be similar off the top of my head. Swatches allow you to see the difference (swatched over Laura Mercier’s Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer in Natural).

1. MAC Mauvement Pigment
2. Urban Decay Toasted Eyeshadow
3. Bobbi Brown Raisin Metallic (far left from Velvet Plum Metallics Trio)
4. MAC Style Snob Eyeshadow
5. MAC Satin Taupe Eyeshadow
6. Bobbi Brown Velvet Plum Metallics (far right from Velvet Plum Metallics Trio)
7. Stila Grace Eyeshadow
8. Nars Kalahari Eyeshadow Duo

  • I didn't like MAC Satin Taupe… but it looks like I would like Style Snob or NARS Kalahari. Thanks for the comparisons!

  • Great post, style snob was the only one from that release I was interested in and I will have to get it now πŸ™‚

  • Oh jesus!! I need Style Snob ASAP…despite owning everything on your arm besides the BB and Stila lol =D

  • sigh, i was hoping to see Coco and Coco Beach here. hmm. but Mauvement have me an idea already. thanks a lot! They all look wonderful.

  • Hi Jojoba – I didn't compare the new Style Snob to Coco Pigment b/c it's more mauve than taupe to me. I've had several requests to compare it to some more traditional taupes, I'll try and swatch them in the next couple days and update this post for you!

    Coco Beach is a completely different color though. I don't own it, I got a sample when it was originally released. This one is most similar to Chocolate Brown, just slightly more reddish.

  • I am absolutely head over heels in LOVE with your blog!!!!
