Overall gorgeous color.. It suits my pale skintone and blends well with gorgeous sparkles... Its a beautiful color to blend with a neutral for a light smokey summer look .. MAC shadows are top of the line quality
On my warm NC45-50 skin, B-Rich is a deep reddish brown with loads of silver sparkles. I was pleasantly surprised that that the sparkles didn't end up under my eyes when applying, and the colour stayed true all day. I'm really into browns and neutrals now and I probably will reach for this now and then for variety. The prominent red tones makes this hard to wear, but with a little blending and the right combos, it looks ok. Having said that, I wouldn't repurchase. In fact I would return this & pick a different colour if I could.
Rich, ginger-brown with reddish tones and lots of silver shimmer. It's nice on me (light with yellow undertones, dark eyes and black hair) if it's well-blended in the crease to give me a smoldering look. But it's a bit too dark and pigmented for everyday (for me at least). Pretty but not a must-have.
This really is a nice shadow. My mild disappointment with it results from the fact that I have unrealistically high expectations when it comes to MAC products; I have a tendency to expect them to be magical every time, and that just doesn't happen in the real world.
Since I can't get to a MAC counter, I ordered B-Rich from the MAC site, which describes this shadow as "Enriched cocoa brown with silver sparkle." Well, sorta. In reality, B-Rich has a slight coppery cast to it, and the sparkles look gold to me.I think it's closer to a "gingerbread" brown than a "cocoa" brown. Oddly enough, B-Rich looks more copper-y in the pan than it does on me(pale pink-ivory skin, dark brown hair, dark green eyes). I would classify it as a "medium" shade. It's deep enough to work as a crease shade, but I'm not sure it would work for the popular "smokey" eye look.
B-Rich is a "Velvet," and I love the smooth texture and good pigmentation. There is absolutely no chalkiness to this shadow, and the very fine sparkles stay put.
In all, B-Rich is a great shadow; I just prefer cooler browns; my HG brown is "Satin Taupe." If you want a slightly sparkly, warm-to-neutral medium brown, I suggest checking out B-Rich while this LE is still available. I love browns, and I think this one will be nice to have in my collection. Next time, I'll look for a cooler brown, though.
UPDATE: Though I've worn this a few times and like it better than I'd feared that I would, I'm still not madly in love with it. I pair it with "Sunnydaze" pigment and "Shroom" shadow, and that seems to tone down the redness a little. I still wish it were deeper and more of a cool brown. I prefer UD's "Twice Baked" for a deep true chocolate brown. "B-Rich" is not at all a bad product; it just doesn't suit me very well. continued >>
