- Armure Demi Matt (fawn)
- Silesia Demi Matt (smoke)
- Surah Shimmer (mushroom)
Enigma is a cool-toned taupe lover's delight. With just these three colors you can do natural or dramatic. Note that there is no highlighter color--all colors in this palette are mean to stand on their own.
It would be easy to create a subtle, work-appropriate look using Surah on the lid, Armure in the crease, and Silesia to line. Silesia also works well along the lash line, smudged up, with Armure in the crease and Surah in the inner corners.
Armure is called "soft fawn" by Becca, but when I think of a baby deer, I think of red brown. Armure is more like a soft dove grey, purely cool in tone, maybe the color of baby field mouse
Surah is a neutral taupe, and mushroom is a good adjective to describe it, greige with hints of mauve. Surah is the only color in the trio that contains shimmer, but the shimmer is extremely subtle. I took the below photo outside in indirect sun so you could see the subtlety of the shimmer.
Silesia is a mid-toned smokey grey, unlike any other deep grey in my makeup collection. It makes a gorgeous liner and a very pretty crease color that blends out quite well.
I postponed making this purchase, mostly because I assumed it would not be unique. It is possible that some of these colors can be duplicated, but I own nothing like any of the trio, so I am glad I bought it.
The Enigma Palette, though limited edition, is still available on the Becca Web site, as well as at other retailers, like Dermstore.com.
Bottom line: Highly recommended for anyone who likes cool taupes.
