Rated 3.87 out of 5 stars
Most Helpful Positive Review Earthly Taupe
I agree. I have used Earthly Taupe for so long I can't even tell you how many years. There isn't any color I would use now. Will probably need to look at other companies.
My overall rating of 5 stars was for the product that I can no longer get.
Most Helpful Critical Review Rating color - Does not compare to Earthly Taupe.
I am Frantically searching where to find Earthly Taupe and discovered it is discontinued. Sooooo sad as it is a Beautiful matte color...never liked "sparkly" even as a very young woman. Now I'm in my early 60's and the matte Earthly Taupe still looks Perfect as I am aging. Very Classy! The Linen you suggested to use is what I use as my hi-light under my brow & inner lids along with the Earthly Taupe. Please, please, please bring this color back to the market! Been a fan of Maybelline since I was a teenager. Me & many ladies are loyal to your company....Can you be loyal to us as well? Thank you. (:

Misha Lawless from Cincinnati, OH
Looking at some reviews for this color, and your team replies. Need to be clear on this and any of your EPXERT EYES colors on what is a MATTE, PEARL, or SHMMMER. Seashell is NOT A MATTE. You really need to call this out for customers with sensitive eyes, older skin, contacts, etc. The ingredients and descriptions posted online do not clearly call this out, and the packaging in store does not either. This type of information should be included for all eyeshadows as a minimum standard for customer safety.
Color is darker than picture
Sandy from Kentucky
I ordered the Sterling Griege and the one I received is not even close to the color shown in the picture, its a lot darker. Not near as pretty as the one in pic. Taking it back to store for a refund :(
Dgilson from Clovis ca
Love this eyeshadow. It is natural yet enough pigment to give your eyes a little pop of color. Keep getting compliments from coworkers and family.
PLEASE BRING BACK EARTHLY TAUPE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
donna in doo dah from Wichita, KS
Us old ladies do not like all the sparkle and bling. Please bring back this shade. There is nothing out there that matches it. PLEASE!!!
No longer a fan from Hoosierland
Earthly Taupe was a staple in my make up routine and I loved it! Now, I can no longer find it anywhere. Why would you discontinue this gem and not replace it with something comparable. I prefer matte neutrals and now you only offer shimmery items or neutrals that lean too far pink or yellow for an average skin tone. Extremely disappointed!!!
Disappointed In Maybellin from undisclosed
You discontinued Earthy Taupe Matte and it was really good. :(
Bright bold colors
Abuibi from San Pedro California
Please bring back "acid rain" is a blue color that's impossible to find.
Southernshopper from undisclosed
Please bring. A k earthy taupe!! It was the best color ever and the matte was great. Wished maybeline offered more in matte, not everyone likes shimmery glittery look. Please consider bringing earthy taupe in matte back.

I like this color. Looks nude with a subtle hint of shine. I wear all over my lid up to my brows.
Love the shadows; hate the applicator!
Rose C from Chicago
Please bring back the old applicators! I get the idea, but it is way too short and messy. Otherwise still going strong with these for 15 years!
Easy to apply and stays put!
Kat88 from Phoenix, AZ
The only bad thing is that there used to be a really pretty blue color that I used and I don't see it any more! Please bring it back!
Bring back Pink petal
Not gray yet from South Carolina
Pink petal eye shadow color was the best for me. Bring it back. I could wear it alone and look fabulous. Of course with mascara. It kept my eyes from looking tired or too washed out on the lids.
Made for Mocha Color Change?
browneyedgirl from Chicago, IL
I am giving this a poor rating based solely on the color Made for Mocha as this is the only color I am currently having an issue with. I have used your eye shadows for so many years and my every day must have color is Made for Mocha! The last two that I had purchased are not the same color as always. The color is now extremely darker than it had always been, and for some reason it's also not as easy to apply. I have to throw them away because no matter what I try to do (blend, change applicators, etc.) my eyes look awful! Why the change?
Crumbles too easily
Suzy Q from Arizona
I've been using this eyeshadow for decades. Each one has lasted almost a year.
They seem to have changed the formula because now it just crumbles into a big, powdery mess if it's carried around. My purse and make-up case were huge, black messes. I am going to look for a different brand eyeshadow that won't crumble.
Earthly taupe shadow
Nmenk from South Bend, IN
Please bring this back!!!! Haven't found anything that works as well as a base.
Bring back Earthly Taupe
Mmm coffee from Orlando, FL
Earthly Taupe (170) was the best base color, ever. Shame it is discontinued. I've found two reasonable substitutes: MAC (Omega) and Anastasia (Stone).
Earthly Taupe eye shadow
Ginni 20 from Florida

Rach4 from Tower, MN
I have been using Silken Taupe for 10+ years. Perfect easy everyday look. Pleeaase bring this shade back!
KarenF60 from New Jersey
Please bring back the Earthy Taupe eye shadow. This was the best base shadow ever. Why would you discontinue this? Nothing comes close. I have looked everywhere. This makes me not want to buy Maybelline products any more.
Is maybelline eyeshadows hypoallergenic?
Cici from Detroit
Roxxxann from San Antonio
I don't care for the eyeshadows anymore. The colors are not pretty
Bring back Earthly Taupe eye shadow
Donna2020 from Santa Rosa, CA
There isn't any other color that comes close. Bring it back PLEASE!!!!
I use many other eye shadow colors, just miss earthly taupe.
Shasha07 from PITTSBURGH
Maybelline has always lasted the longest on me. I always get comments about how good it looks all day. My two favorite shades were Urban Brown and Silken Taupe. I have spent years trying to find anything as good as Urban Brown nothing else works with my skintone and chemistry as well.
Tastefully Taupe Eye Shadow
Taylor F from Boyertown, PA
I love the color and the glitter that it has. However, it flakes all over your face to the point people, friends or strangers, ask why I have glitter on my face.
Sarah512 from Austin, TX
Ive used night sky for over 10+ years and I dont know when the formula changed but there used to be glitter in the eyeshadow. Now i'll have to find a different black eyeshadow with a hint of glitter now.
