I know you're like "15$ for a beige eyeshadow" and I'm sure you can get a similar color for cheaper- but i will say this color is a must have. Not the Mac shadow itself but the shade from any brand I guess would do. It's a great highlight or all over lid color and you just have to try it to truly appreciate it. It lights up the face and just rounds out your look. Love love love!
This is one of the very first MAC eyeshadows that I purchased. Of course it was recommended by the M/A that was helping me. I love this color and have purchased it at least 10 times since the first one.
It is great to apply over your lid primer since it is so neutral and has no shimmer. I also use it as a highlighter near by brow.
It is a must have for any make up collection!
Brulé is great for an overall wash of color on the lid. Its matte and there's no shimmer. Also nice for brow highlight. Love the pro pan because it stores easily in my palettes.
I like this eyeshadow alot, it is not exactly the color of my skin, but it's still a good neutral, matte lid color. It's very good for a natural eye look, however, it isn't that unique, and there are more affordable eyeshadows that could do the exact same thing.
I'm not excited with this eyeshadow! Sure it is a great base for me... because I'm very pale but I don't like its texture at all... like I'm putting regular dust on my eyelids... I don't know... maybe it's my own eyeshadow....
I think this is a lovely base colour for very pale skin. It works well with or without a primer in my case as i do not have oily lids. Im sure on someone who has a deeper skin tone than me it would work well as a highlighter. I found it highly pigmented and easy to apply. It tends to become a little chalky after a couple of hours but i think this is more because of my very dry skin than the eyeshadow itself. Although a little more pricey than drugstore eyeshadows, i really like this one.
This is the best highlighting shade I have ever used. I have pretty fair skin and this color is like my skin color but ten times better and creamier. It's a perfect brow bone highlight or is perfect all over painterly paint pot and a soft brown in the crease with thin liner and mascara. The finish is satin so it is not quite matte but it definitely is not shimmery or glittery which is perfect. I pack this shadow every time I go out of town or spending the night at a friends. I would recommend this to anyone with fair skin as I use it every single day I wear make up with out a fail.
Received in a swap, this really doesn't show up on my NW20 skin at all. I do use it as a base, but won't repurchase. It takes some work to get product, but I guess that is a common problem with MAC's matte shades. For the cost, there are much better shadows out there.
I don't wear MAC foundation, but NC42 is my shade. For years I used Naked Lunch as the lighter shade under the brow. Then the other day I fooled around with some app that reproduces what looks to be the blank MAC...face map? Face outline? Anyway, I fooled around with a lot of the MAC shadows on it and Brule looked promising. Now that I have the shadow on my eyelid, I cannot believe how perfect this shade is for my coloring. Will make an excellent neutral (Naked Lunch is definitely rosier shade) and key component to "nude eye."
This color isn't really light enough on me to use as a highlighter, but I do like it as a nice neutral base for the rest of my eyeshadow. Fallout is minimal and it's matte, so work-appropriate. I would probably repurchase.
