Fall 2010: Coffret d´Or Beauty C Curve Eyes in 06 Smoky Brown

I quite liked the peach-themed Beauty C Curve Eyes from Coffret d´Or released for summer 2010 and was determined to pick up the taupe one for fall 2010 as soon as I spotted the first pics on Rouge Deluxe.

I was waiting for a while to see if Adambeauty would get the 2 limited fall palettes and picked up the one in 06 Smoky Brown when I finally spotted it.
The other palette is plum/gray but the plum shade looked a bit reddish online however I might pick it up if I see good swatches pop up that show the palette clearly.

Anyway, I described the slim case in my previous review and the texture of this palette is similarly sheer however the shadows feel a good deal rougher and grittier which is something I don´t understand. No idea why they didn´t stick to the normal formula? Anyway, the colors are pigmented enough to show up beautifully and they blend nicely. 

There is a big color to be used as a highlighter around the eye area, a quite glittery light shade, a metallic medium color and a shimmery deep (liner) color.
The medium and deep colors show up best though the medium color needs some layering. The 2 highlighters are very sheer and I dislike the strong glitter in the light color.
Overall not the best taupe palette in my opinion but it´s definitely pretty and fall-appropriate.

06 Smoky Brown contains a deep brown, medium silver taupe, a white glitter shade and an off-white highlighter.

I've been debating whether to get this palette or not. I think the shades look really pretty, and I definitely am a taupe color lover!

So, which palette do you consider to be the 'best/prettiest' taupe eyeshadow palette, Kathi?

I really want a coffret. I've read your reviews of them. I wish they were just not so expensive. This one is lovely and so simple!!
