I'm an NC35-40 (depending on the seasons) and I LOVE this for my brows. It's the perfect brown for me, not too red & not too ashy. Even when I want a strong brow, I can get away with it looking "natural" and not too overdone. Is a definite staple in my makeup bag :) continued >>
i use it as an eyeliner and its great, works amazing for smokey eyes cause its really easy to blend, i think its the best brown that ive tried from all of MACs browns. very versatile, wont crease or fade, amazing product!
This is such a gorgeous, versatile color. I use this to fill in my brows, in my crease or in my lower lash line. Color us a dark brown with a dark gray undertone to it. Consistency is buttery and blendablr (unlike mac's espresso eyeshadow). This is must have in any black haired girl's palette. Def would repurchase! :)
This is my go to product. my skin tone is an NC35 in winter (maybe a couple of shades darker depending on my outdoor activities) and this is a perfect eye liner/eyebrow/crease colour for me depending on what look i'm going for. there is a slight amount of fallout but nothing that can't be handles with a little powder on the cheek.
perfect. And i love Matte.. so.
Me; Asian w yellow undertones, nc30, dk brown hair w blonde or caramel highlights. Brun is perfect for brows when I have darker hair. When I have blonde highlights, I prefer Mac charcoal brown for brows.
Great color to fill in your brows and a natural lid accent!
I was rather crushed when I went to MAC only to find out my brow filler (eye shadow in Bark, not to be confused with Embark..) is now discontinued! For reference I am NW15, with dark brown hair with warm undertones. I was a little cautious thinking this would be too bold or dark against my fair skin, but it blends in perfectly with my hair and looks natural as can be.
I actually prefer it over the Bark. The difference is mainly that Brun is darker, though both have sort of cooler undertones in my opinion. I would repurchase, and plan to experiment using this on my actual eye lid!
This eyeshadow is very buildable, blendable, versatile, and pigmented. I use it to fill my brows, contour my nose, and on my eyelids of course. The color is neutral and is the shadow that I use the most. It does not irritate my sensitive eyes. I bought Satin Taupe because I liked how it looked in the pan and from all of the raving reviews, but I think it looks almost invisible alone so I like to use Brun as a base to enrich the different colors in ST.
LOVE this eyeshadow for my brows. I have very very black eyebrow hairs, and I found that this shade is the perfect brow powder because it has no red/orange undertones. I went in to a MAC store searching for a brow pencil when the SA suggested using an eyeshadow. She suggested that I use Mystery, but after contemplating it for a bit, I realized that Mystery had a red/orange undertone that my eyebrows did not have. So I saw Brun, and asked a different SA if Brun would be better than Mystery for my brows, and she said that Brun is what many people with black hair use for their brows because of the greyish understones. I decided to get Brun and I'm so glad I did!
As you can read, the eyebrow color of choice for black haired ladies... There was some mild SA shrieking when I was a newbie and using Carbon (thinking black hair = black brows, wrong, you generally go 2 shades lighter for dark haired people).
But I am a bit bored of my MAC palettes after 10 yrs, so I'm going to start looking around and see what all the hoopla is about other products.
