MAC Soft Brown Eyeshadow Review, Swatches

Soft Brown - Soft Peachy Golden brown

Price – Rs 680 (refill) , Rs 900 ( in pan)

MAC describe soft brown as “soft golden peachy brown” . I would say it’s aptly described. It is a matte finish peachy brown eyeshadow. If there is one “must have” eyeshadow from MAC , I think it would be this. Although it looks like quite a normal eyeshadow colour in pan, it is quite an excellent shade. It makes your eyelids looks healthy and beautiful.

You can use Soft brown eyeshadow as :

  • An all over lids colour. Just apply soft brown all over your lid, apply black eyeliner, mascara and you’d be done.
  • You can pair it up with any eyeshadow colour.
  • You can use it as a transitional colour.
  • You can blend your eyeshadow with it.
  • You can even use it as a crease eyeshadow.
  • You can use it with cooler eyeshadow shades to bring some warmth to your eyes.
  • On very dull eyes days, it would just brighten up your eyes – making your lids look ” my lids but better”
  • A great office wear / every day eyeshadow.

Soft brown goes on smoothly on lids, does not crease and with a base stays all day long.

Following is the closest colour shot:

Highly, highly and very highly recommended. πŸ™‚

I MUST get this now! I’ve always read great reviews abt this but everytime I swatch it seems like such a nude shade..m afraid it won’t show up on my lids (my lids are pigmented!)
I will try it when I go to MAC next time πŸ™‚

Rati May 21, 2011 at 12:49 pm

if your lids are pigmented you must def give this a shot. It would mkae your lids look so much better. I have seen that happening on myself. :))

sunkanya either match your lips with cheeks or lips with eyes.. like orange all over the face would look tacky..

Its a lovely colour, Rati! I want something like this, but I’m much darker than you. I also have dark eyelids. What would you suggest in MAC as an all-over lid colour in a matte finish, something that would brighten up the eyes?

Reply

paromita January 16, 2012 at 8:59 am

Hi Rati…the color is so lovely that its inspired me to buy my first MAC eyeshadow…. :yes:
Would you also be able to suggest a good primer for makeup? I have read that a primer is very important part of makeup but not sure why…. :(( :(( :(( :shame:
Request if IMBB could help me with this… ?:)

Ingrid May 22, 2012 at 2:22 am

I would L*O*V*E* to buy Soft Brown, but they don’t sell it in The Netherlands!
Can anybody please help me out here?
I would fully pay for the costs off course.
