Tough as Taupe
The Maybelline Color Tattoo in Tough as Taupe is a matte medium-dark taupe cream shadow. Tough as Taupe looks much lighter in the pot than it does swatched.
The formula of Tough as Taupe is great. It's creamy and easy to build up color. It lasts all day with minimal creasing and is very smudge and water proof. I find that Tough as Taupe is best used as a built up shade, as it isn't the easiest product to blend out.
Bad to the Bronze
The Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze is a shimmery light bronze that isn't warm or cool toned. I think this makes Bad to the Bronze wearable for all eye colors and for both cool and warm skin tones.
Bad to the Bronze is much more subtle when built up than Tough as Taupe. This makes it really easy to wear as an all over shade & it also blends out to a more subtle bronze easily. Bad to the Bronze had the same great formula as Tough as Taupe.
Tough as Taupe VS Bad to the Bronze
These are not similar shades, but I thought I would just show how they compare, maybe if you are deciding between these colors.
Bad to the Bronze is shimmery, while Tough as Taupe is matte. Both would make nice lid colors, but Bad to the Bronze would probably be more flattering as a one-shadow eye look. I found that Bad to the Bronze blended out easier and looked better blended out than Tough as Taupe.
