I have finally found it -- the perfect eyebrow shade for my black brows! I must have tried up to a 100 products by this point, but I was always searching for The One. My quest led to me brow pencils, brow powders, and brow gels/creams, but nothing looks as natural, lasts as long, AND is as easy to apply as MAC's eyeshadow in Coquette. The color is wonderful darkened taupe-brown shade. For those with black hair, it's important to go lighter with your brow product because you don't want harsh black eyebrows. I find that most dark brown shades are still too dark or have a unnatural red undertone to them, so I look for taupe or ash brown colors.
To apply Coquette, I simply dip my EcoTools Angled Brush into the pot and sweep it into my brows in small strokes for instant brow definition and color. I love how it lasts all day until I take off my makeup at night. I find that brow powders don't produce a super bold eyebrow like pencils and brow gels/creams can unless you really pack on the color, which makes this a great fool-proof product for an everyday look.
I don't know why I ever swapped for this shade since I never wear browns/neutrals on my eyes. But since I dyed my blonde hair brown, and have light blonde brows, I decided to give shadows a try in place of brow crayons.
This works really well for me with a slanted brush. The only problem is my makeup bag fell on the floor and the shadow broke, so now I am left with a huge chunk missing. That will shorten its time I use it, and have to replace it faster than I normally would have :(
A great shade for brows and eyes. Coquette is medium, cool satin brown that looks boring in the MAC display, but I use it almost every day on my brows and regularly to contour my creases. I have light brown hair and thin brows, and Coquette on a small, angled brush is great for filling in only my brow arches (this is often all you need to enhance brows) or the entire brow when I want a stronger shape. It's a good alternative to Fling brow pencil, which I also have.
This neutral color is also a great crease tone because it's satiny and easy to blend. Working it into the eyelid is easy and quick, and the color creates beautiful, natural depth. I have fair skin, and browns can look dirty and bruised on me, but not this one. I think this is a pretty universal shade that shouldn't be overlooked, despite being so nondescript.
Recently discovered this gorgeous neutral brown. I've never thought to use it on my brows, but it makes a gorgeous lid color and blends really smoothly.
Coquette. Satin (I find it matte) mid-toned dirty brown with a hint of olive.
Good color for crease area but I mostly use it to fill in my eyebrows. Perfect for it (and the olive does not show in your eyebrow, don't worry).
I have cool, very dark brown hair, but I don't like having very dark brows, so mixed with MAC's Omega, this creates the perfect brow color for me. I bought this with Omega to put in a 2-space MAC custom palette specifically for my eyebrows. It's very muted and appears almost greyish in the pan, but mixed with Omega on the brows, it comes out to be a lovely light to medium ash brown that defines the brows without any harshness. I also will use this as a crease color for neutral looks. Very versatile!
I use this for my eyebrows and I love it. It provides great color and stays on all day. I cannot comment on the use for shadow but love I can use it for both my brows and eyes. I like how the color matches my natural brow and still looks like a darker, refined version of my real brow.
I love this eyeshadow! It broke twice now, but I put some rubbing alcohol on it, and pressed it hard with a quarter, and let it dry.. and it fixed it both times :) a quarter is the perfect size for macs! This is a velvety, matte, nicely pigmented eye shadow! It looks especially good with primer potion, and can be used with a thick black line of eyeliner for drama, or used lightly for a soft, doe eyed look :) I just bought an angled brush to try this on my eyebrows after reading all the reviews here! --- edit! so it does work well for eyebrows!! yay!
Coquette is an almost matte, medium to dark warmish taupe. it even looks a little green to me. i own other shades that are similar to this, but none compare to this exactly, because this is such a chameleon colour. as there is no real brown or blue in this, the colour does exactly what you want it to do for every look. it just adds so much texture and depth to any eyeshadow combination, without depositing an actual specific colour. today, i actually forgot to add a touch of this to a particular look i like to wear this with, and it just didn't look as good. when i remembered the missing ingredient, that's when i realised how much of a difference this colour makes.
this would also be great for a lid colour, because it's a colour that you can't put your finger on, so it would look really unique and unexpected. i wore this as a lid colour over 'Painterly' paint pot the other day and i noticed that made it into a more minty taupe. which is quite unusual.
i would recommend this, because once you have it in your collection, you'll find yourself reaching for it very often.
Great brow filler for my dark asian hair. Looks natural and not over done even with a heavy hand. Will definitely buy again when I run out but that's probably not for a very long time.
