UP IN SMOKES

I contemplated this palette purchase for an annoyingly extended amount of time because I’m pretty sure I didn’t need it. So off I went to dig through my humble eyeshadow stash. Whaddayaknow — despite my attraction to dark, smoldering shades of taupe, I realized I almost always end up going for browns and/or purples instead. It’s because I find taupes quite hard to pull off without looking like I got punched in the face. I remember trying Chanel Gri Gri on and just shook my head in sadness after confirming that the “KO”-ed look officially isn’t for me. So to say that She Wolf is a risky buy is a complete understatement. I only relied on swatches upon swatches of this palette that I was 95% sure I would pass. “Pretty, but I’m sure it wouldn’t work for me”, I kept repeating to myself. Well, I think I need that punch in the face now as I had another moment of weakness. “Life’s too short, buy the palette” kicked my previous maxim out of the bank. So, shipped from Neiman (Nordstrom didn’t carry Tom Ford yet when I bought it then) to My-Shopping Box and straight to my doorstep all with the cursing ease of GCASH-Amex, here it is — my soul, She Wolf. 7b3d

3 Shades of Grey

Basically, three greyish-brown-taupey shades in three distinctly different textures. A matte, a shimmer and a glitter. To be honest, I was not at all excited for the glitter part as I’m 99% glitter-averse but I was slightly swayed by the sparkly shade in this one. The colors also look more promising in person than they do on-screen, at least for me. TBH, it took me almost a month to open this palette and finally play with it because I was still debating on how I would feel and what I would do afterwards if yet again, the shades reject me. 2b

SHADE, TEXTURE, PIGMENTATION & THE WORKS

The darkest shade on the leftmost is a dusky grayish deep brown. It’s verrry soft and silky and doesn’t take a lot of effort to show or build up. I did one heavy swipe on my arm below. I am a sucker for dark browns like these. Granted, it’s not at all unique that you can surely find other shades in your stash. However, this brown really transforms when layered on top of the second shade, which I’ll talk about next. The central shade. Just… beautiful. It’s a satin grayish taupe that I don’t think I can find a close dupe of in my stash. This is my favorite of the three, I think. It’s an easy-to-wear taupe that doesn’t leave me looking like I’ve been training for an MMA battle I’m sure to lose. It’s also quite enjoyable to blend because of how it transforms when mixed with the dark shade. The last one is 50 shades of sparkling silver that didn’t feel quite like powder eyeshadow, but more like a cream one. It did remind me of the Chanel Illusion d’Ombres without the plushy, bouncy feel. The two shades above are quite beautiful on their own and when blended together but topped sparingly with this, it glints! I mean, I was taken aback when I saw myself on the mirror and realized how sparkle could actually be subtle and not screaming, which I usually attach with glitter shadows like these. BUT, I did have some fallout issues with this one. 52b

I’ve Found My Perfect (Christian) Grey

All kinds of thankful that I don’t have the dreadful punched-in-the-face look when wearing this. So yes, I do like this palette. I mean, I’m still loving my neutral browns and purples, but I’m warming up on greys and taupes now, too. I honestly thought I could only use this palette at night but it is quite wearable during the day as well if you use the glitter shade sparingly or completely skip it (I wouldn’t, though! I like the subtle hint of glimmer). I wouldn’t go as far as saying as it is a must-have, but since it’s one of the only taupe / gray selections I can comfortably wear, I’m bordering on yes. Also, I’m leaving you guys with a huge-ass OOTD I wore with this look. This was taken at the 5-6 hour mark of wearing and it hasn’t creased nor faded yet. Another Tom Ford gem, if I may say so myself. z

    Hey Shari, She Wolf looks lovely on you! I got to swatch it, but it pulls too gray on my skin tone. On you it’s just right!

    • November 25, 2013 / 1:02 am

      Oh wow, thanks Sunny!! :* What grey/taupe shades have worked for you in the past if I may ask? 🙂

      • November 25, 2013 / 1:05 am

        Hmm gray is a tricky one on me. When it comes to taupes, I need the ones that aren’t predominantly gray. I’m thinking RBR Bohemian Waxwing, MAC Satin Taupe, and Laura Mercier Grey Pearl 😉

      A big PHEW moment there definitely! Thanks Joyce! 🙂 And I saw She Wolf on you – waaaay beautiful!

    You look gorgeous! very beautiful! I think the colors are really complementing. Taupe is funny at first but i think it looks really flattering on many types of skintone =)

    • November 25, 2013 / 1:06 am

      I agree, Jen. Taupe is funny and hard to pull off (for me atleast!) but I like that it has different nuances (I mean what shade is TAUPE exactly) that makes it flattering on many types of skintones, you just have to find your match! And thank you dear for the sweet compliment :*

    • November 25, 2013 / 1:06 am

      Aww 50 shades of gorgeous – LOL!! 🙂 Love that! Thanks Linda babe! And yes, I was vuuuury hesitant as I usually cant pull off grey/taupe shades! Unlike you – umm did an eyeshadow ever not suit you? Jealzzz.

        haha…. u’re so sweet babe!! Helloo…. LOTS of eyeshadows dont work on me, and unlike you, i’m not as discerning as you, that I only realize AFTER buying! Lots of browns dont work… they make me look 100 yrs old and incredibly tired.

    This looks really great on you! I used to go with greys for my eyes but then realized I’m not that good with layering them on so I stopped. I think I may have to relearn putting on eyeshadow as I haven’t done so in a while haha. This palette, however, was MADE FOR YOU!

      AWW thanks Megann! I know what you mean, gurl. I used to be the same. I think you just have to find the right shade of grey and practice the placement 😉 It will make a difference! Good luck, Megzz!

    Such gorg shades!! I love these concept eyeshadows, similar shades with different finishes, I can totally see this working with everyone! I would love one of these trios or a quad from Guerlian or a sonia kashuk with the different finishes!
