Jeweled Taupe is described as "an amazing, metallic, bronzey taupe with multi-colored shimmer like tiny little jewels". The multi-colored glitter within the base acts like a duochrome when you put it on. When it's on the lid, the glitter isn't as apparent but when you blend into the crease and the light hits it at the right angle, you get a great flash of the color.
This is one of Darling Girl's top selling eyeshadows and it is not surprising to see why. Because of the glitter, you do need to use a glitter fixative underneath but I think the color is most definitely worth it. I pretty much declare that if you were to own any of DG's eyeshadows, this would be it. You ain't a DG customer til you own this is all I'm saying. Do you already own it?
Life-wise, I'm really hoping to be less busy with school. I took the GRE yesterday (nailed it because I did better than average!) and studying for that was taking up most of my time lately. There are a few midterms coming up but I'm hoping to get those out of the way and get back to blogging (at least before I start grad school applications!)
