One of my staples, it's good with everything and good with every skin tone! I use this as a highlight and base. it blends well esp. when you do a lot of smokey eyes, it makes the smokey eyes not too harsh. I love it and will continue to use it!
My sister got this on my birthday. I told her I wanted Carbon,Creme de violet and etc.etc.
when it came to mail, i was excited. there was a mistake. box says carbon but inside the e/s was this. I was kind of ticked off because it looked so boring and I didnt want it. I was gonna give it away or sell it. but I tried it one time and I loved it. it didnt look boring on my skin. So I can honestly say this e/s was like the best mistake
I agree that it looks so boring in the pan!!! But the effect of this superfinely milled neutral shade on my lids is that I look perfectly awake (without obvios glitter!!!) and that creates a beautiful yet extremely natural contrast to my dark brown eyes. It also perfectly neutralizes my yellowish eyelids, so that means it is highly pigmentend without being the least chalky or dusty, it has almost a creamy consistency (think of high quality mineral foundation). It is matte, but still reflects the light which is not often the case with matte e/s.
Worn alone it's the perfect "business" eyeshadow which I can easily pimp with other colors like satin taupe or espresso in the crease.
Without Kandee Johnson's recommendation for this eyeshadow I would have never even taken a look a this e/s.
Where Naked Lunch totally failed for me (too pinkish and cool) this one is the PERFECT match for my NC20 /NC25 skin.
A wonderful MAC shadow! I needed a colour to put over my UDPP as even on days I don't do any other shadow I like to use a neutral one just to even out my lid colour and make me look awake - which in my opinion, UDPP doesn't do. Anyway this is perfect for that purpose! It works great alone and as a colour base! it does make me look awake when used in the inner corners and is also very useful for blending crease colours, as there is no shimmer. The pigmentation I feel is great, especially when applied with the MAC 217 brush.
Overall, an invaluable neutral!
I've added this lovely shade to my neutral pro pallette and I am not disappointed with it in any way. It works better as a base colour than Shroom or Blanc Type on my NC15 skin. It looks divine with Omega and Coquette worked in to the outer v to make a sultry 60's smokey eye. A new staple for me!
I like this shade a lot. I have dark hair and medium toned skin, and this is the perfect highlighter for me. It's almost like my natural skin color (just a few shades lighter) so it's the perfect natural highlighter. I use it everyday on my browbone and just under my eyes (high cheekbones) I love that it's not TOO light but it's still a good highlighter
Finally got this oh-so-hyped color. Great all-over base for fair skin-tones. When I say "base" I don't mean like an actual base (like a primer or paintpot) for your eyeshadow to stick to, I just mean a basic overall lid color. So yeah, this is a nice cream-to-flesh colored eyeshadow that evens out the entire lid color and stays matte and opaque (it's actually a satin finish but there's no sheen to it whatsoever). Good for sophisticated matte looks, pin-up/vintage ventures and so on. Necessary in any fair maid's collection, as well as an interesting matte browbone option for anyone darker than NC/NW25. Will repurchase.
My new brow bone must! Although, I've not tried shroom yet...
Of all my eyeshadows, MAC and otherwise, this colour gets the most use (seconded by Shroom, which I use most days as a highlighter). I have quite pale skin (NW20ish) and I find that this is the absolute perfect colour to blend the edges of darker colours so that there is no sharp line between my skintone and the shadow or between the browbone highlight and the shadow. It's almost exactly the same colour as my skin. It is soft enough that it blends easily, it's not at all chalky and has a hint of beige that's just enough to make it blend easily with my light skin. If you have similar skintone to mine, this is one I highly recommend to blend edges out, if you have darker skin this shade could be used as a nice browbone highlighter when you want a near-matte shade.
I recently purchased Brule because I felt like its a must have in addition to my other eye shadows. I own Vanilla, Blanc Type, Orb, and Chamomile (LE) Brule can be paired with many colors like Soba, Era, Soft Brown, its a lovely creamy satin formula that can be also used as a highlighter for the brow bone. This will most likely work on anyone and should be a staple in any makeup bag.
