    Taupe looks like the prefect contouring powder! It is ironically always out of stock EVERYWHERE! Will definitely grab it as and when it reappears!

      Yes, it's a bit hard to get. Just like the JEP in Milk, they're too popular. x

    You've reminded me to pull mine out. I've had Taupe for years but never really gave it much thought since I thought it looked dirty on my warm toned skin. I'm going to give it another crack! x

    Great review, I think you've definitely convinced me now! I always thought that it might not be dark enough for my skintone but if it works for you, it will definitely work for me 🙂

    Taupe looks like a gorgeous colour, its at the top of my list of NYX products to buy

    This looks gorgeous and a colour that's certainly right up my street, I've not seen a NYX counter locally, there is one but it's about an hour away so next time I'm around one, I must pick up some things from the brand.

    Love Beth @ BethBlogsBeauty

    NYX Taupe Blush is my everyday contour and bronzing color, I love the cool tones of my skin and this color works perfectly as a contour for my such fair skin!

    I can never find Taupe in my local drugstores! Your swatch of Too Faced Chocolate Soleil is gorgeous though and I am now tempted to purchase that instead.

      Oh, I love that! I've hit pan on it and will be repurchasing once it runs out. x

    I keep looking at this and wasn't sure if it would show up on my skin as I'm quite tanned at the moment. Sounds like I should give it a go now though! x

    I definitely heard a lot of good things about this from other bloggers, but for the most part they are much lighter than I am so it's nice to hear that this worked for you (I think we have similar skin tone) – definitely will be looking for this now.

    Beautiful swatch comparison, Coco! I've personally tried NYX Taupe and though I love the shade, it doesnt last long on me 🙁

    Totally agree with you, I'd say this looks stunning during the Summer! I'm such a fiend for bronzy / browny shades. This is so pretty.

    I love the texture of NYX blushes and this one sounds like no exception- I must give it a peek! I'm still curious about Illamasqua Hollow, though- think my skin might be fair enough for it to work! xo

    CVS has a buy one get 50% off deal for drugstore brands like Revlon and others. Not for L'Oreal or NYX though, sadly.
