Warm Mocha Eye

Sweet little moments


I’m pretty boring with my eye makeup. I stick to a variety of browns and an occasional grey. What can I say, I like neutrals!
I was in Sephora over the holidays and the eyeshadows caught my eye. My Mac shadow in Brun is running out, so I peeked through the display to see if I could find something similar. 
As I stook there I thought, “why on earth haven’t I browse through these shadows before?”
I purchased Dark Chocolate (matte), Pale Beige (matte), and Taupe Shimmer.
Also, if you buy 3 shadows from the Sephora Collection, you get a free palette case.

I did my usual routine of the taupe color all over my lid, the chocolate color near the outer corner, and the pale beige color on my brow bone. I finished with a swipe of, quite possibly, my new favorite eyeliner, Stila Smudge Stick waterproof eyeliner in Stingray


I’m traveling soon and love the ease of having these in a palette! I really like how they wear, and the color payoff is intense. I barely need to even press my brush in the chocolate brown shade to pick up a decent amount of shadow.

You made a lovely palette, I didn’t know you got a free palette case with the purchase of three shadows – that makes them a lot more tempting. Do these stay well through a 9 hour day? The color payoff in the first pic looks great but Sephora brand selections can be very hit or miss in terms of all-day wear in my experience.

Beautiful!!! Are you wearing your normal mascara?

nikkei says · 02.20.14

Could you confirm the name of the pale beige? Is it actually #73 secret boudoir or the#85 coffee break that pops up when you click the pale beige link?

Rebecca Lately says · 02.20.14

I love this!

Wendy Freeland says · 02.20.14

Not seeing the buy 3 shadows get a case deal you mentioned on the website. Some of the shadows are $5 but the most are $13. If the deal is still going on can you direct the link?

Breanne says · 02.20.14

Just thought your disclosure was funny, and it made me laugh. 🙂 They’re familiar with my debit card, too.

Meredith says · 02.20.14

LOL at the disclaimer at the bottom.

Emily says · 02.20.14

I love this! I’m the same way when it comes to eyeshadows…I own lots of different variations of brown! haha

Katie says · 02.20.14

Your disclaimers always crack me up 🙂

Jennifer MommyLifeAfterPh.D. says · 02.20.14

Definitely the shades of color I prefer. Thanks for sharing!

Aimee Rose says · 02.20.14

I know this is an eyeshadow post, but I got distracted by the awesome green color of the scarf you are wearing – love it!

Melissa says · 02.20.14

May I just say, your eyelashes look fantastic. 🙂

Emma Walker says · 02.20.14

Such great neutral all I seem to wear as well!

Would love to hear how they wear compared to MAC, in your opinion. I’m such a MAC snob so I hardly venture out…but these are obviously priced WAY better and they are very pretty 🙂

Amanda Joy says · 02.20.14

I love this look. So natural and pretty!

kristinwithani says · 02.20.14

So pretty! See, I don’t think your makeup is boring at all. I have tried and tried to do my lids like yours but I think it comes down to shape. It just doesn’t work on me.
Those are really pretty colors.

Best eyeliner ever!

Amanda Schaumburger says · 02.20.14

Going to have to check these out. I loved the Stila eyeliner too but have found mine dries out too quickly, it seems, here in Colorado. I am curious, what red lipstick are you wearing in your blog profile photo on the right? Been looking for the perfect shade and trying out a few things. Loved a Nars one recently but it was so matte my lips were all dry and flaky the next AM.

alwaysfinewine says · 02.20.14

Called a representative. Only certain colors (none of the ones you chose) are on sale for $5.00, but the case is free.

Bonnie says · 02.20.14

The Sephora site doesn’t mention free palette, and the eye shadows, including the Taupe you bought, are $13, not $5.

kmac says · 02.20.14

I love the neutrals too! Curious why you got the stingray shadow instead of say Graphite or Triggerfish — you usually lean toward gray eyeliner. 🙂

The Price Family says · 02.20.14

Calm down everyone! She was just letting you be aware of a killer deal on some of the eyeshadows! It wasn’t a sales pitch! Thanks for always sharing your wonderful beauty tips! I am an avid reader!

Kelly says · 02.21.14

I purchased Dark Chocolate (matte), Pale Beige (matte), and Taupe Shimmer. (These shadows are currently $5!

Not sure how you read it but she said these shadows are currently $5, which is not true. I don’t think it is ruining anybody’s life she just needs to get her facts straight before she post something.

You look so pretty!! Love this eye makeup on you!

That’s a really pretty look! I stick to neutrals a lot too!
PS I have a scarf that is very similar too

Amanda: says · 02.21.14

Ooh la la!! That’s almost my EXACT same eye shadow routine!!! That’s probably my favorite color combo! I’ve not tried the Sephora shadows though – I’ll have to check them out 🙂

JMT says · 02.21.14

I just love your blog. Your makeup and hair tips are great, especially since my coloring is similar to yours. I enjoy reading about your experiences as a new mother, too…brings back great memories!

Kelly McEvoy says · 02.21.14

Lovely as always!

Susan says · 02.21.14

Went to Sephora yesterday and got my shadows! Tried them this morning and it’s perfect! I’m always looking for a neutral, but fun eye and this works. The dark mocha goes a long way, so just use a little. Thank you again for sharing your beauty secrets!

Jamece V. says · 02.21.14

The colors look great! They make your eyes stand out even more than the MAC colors did.

Gwen says · 02.21.14

I love the Sephora eye shadows. They are great quality for a good value!

Gwen says · 02.21.14

Question – Do you prefer the Stila smudge stick over the Urban Decay gel liner? I’ve been using the smudge stick, I like it but I’ve been thinking of mixing it up and trying the UD gel liner.

Melanie says · 02.21.14

Taupe is actually a cool shade, not a warm shade.

Your blog is amazing! I got a haircut similar to your “clavicut” because my stylist wanted to play so I let her. One problem: She never taught me to style it. Your blog has made me a new woman. I ADORE the haircut and I used to be a girl with super long hair but never again! Thanks for saving my love for my hair! Also, this makeup palette is exactly what I was looking for! I am not a bright color gal, so I purchased these exact shades. Thanks always for the best advice and awesome ideas!

If you want to buy jewelry online, flexible shipping options and hassle-free returns are crucial. Jewelry websites should provide insured shipping options, including Saturday and next-day delivery. For added protection, many jewelers require a signature upon delivery. In regards to returns, most jewelers have a minimum 30-day return policy and allow exchanges on gift items.
