This along with 'Carbon' was my first MAC purchase.
I tend to love matte shadows over shimmery.
It really fits my skin tone and i use it all over lid and 'Espresso' in my crease to add depth and i put 'Carbon' in my outer corner.
This shadow is a must have, not from MAC but any brand. Nude/Skin tone shadows are always a must have in your makeup bag.

Brule sat in my collection largely untouched for quite a while before it got any real love from me. Reason being that, as an eye shadow, I found it to be 'just okay' since on my NC20-25 skin, it doesn't really show up. However a couple of months ago I was on a hunt for an under-eye setting powder for my concealer as what I usually used for that purpose (my Bare Minerals foundation) was irritating my eyes (bismuth). So... I went through quite a few of the much-hyped and lauded favourites: Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder, Make Up Forever HD Setting Powder, Smashbox HD Setting Powder, various MAC pressed/translucent powders, Bare Minerals Finishing Veil, and even some lower end stuff, but nothing worked for me. Now, from what I understand, most people don't have issues with finding under-eye setting powders, but I do - *big time*. Any time I apply any sort of powder to my under eyes after concealer, irrespective of the brand, the brush, the application, the type of concealer I use, etc. the end result is always the same: dry, dull, old-looking under-eyes with DARK CIRCLES - completely undoing and ruining the covering, brightening effects of concealer! Then one day soon after this expensive failed quest, I looked at my neglected pot of Brule eye shadow, and thought -- hey, why not try? And I'm so glad I did, as this works just beautifully for that very purpose. For fair / fair-medium skin, the stealth factor that is a disappointment for your eyelids is perfect for under your eyes. The satin (not matte, like some reviews are stating) finish of this eye shadow also ensures a smooth, light application. I initially applied it with a brush, but found my favourite way to apply it is with a finger, only applying it to where creases tend to form. I also use it to set primer/concealer over my eyelids before applying eye shadow. Needless to say, this product gets a lot more attention from me these days.

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.
