When I wrote this post recently, one of my wonderful regular readers (the always-lovely Modesty Brown) commented that she thought the colour would be less bronze, so I thought a comparison to the decidedly khaki Torrent as released earlier on in the year would be useful, so here goes:
As you can see, whilst both shades do have a decidedly bronze-y cast to them, Splash is definitely more on the grey side, whilst Torrent runs khaki. However, Splash is only “taupe” in the same way that Chanel’s recent “Taupe Gris” eyeshadow is. Which is to say, not taupe at all, rather more grey-purple, and not quite as brown as a true taupe.
That said, it fits in very well with my love of sludge-shades and both of these shadows are in regular rotation in my makeup routine. I wish there was more love for these shadows out there, they’re great!
