Review - MAC Eyeshadow - Brule

In contrast from my disappointing MAC lipstick review (if you haven't read it click here), I have an extremely positive post today on a MAC eyeshadow. I won this along with the lipstick and thought they each deserved their own separate posts seeing as I had such different opinions on each product. After hearing only positive things about MAC eyeshadows, I was excited to try one out and was certainly not disappointed...

After I won the competition the wonderful Emma (who has a fab blog that you can check out here) gave me the choice to choose what eyeshadow shade I wanted. Seeing as I don't really own any really neutral skin tone eyeshadows I thought I would go for Brule. I also chose such a neutral shade because I had heard nothing but great things about these eyeshadows I wanted to be able to use it on a daily basis as my base eyeshadow.

The first thing I noticed about this eyeshadow is how perfectly it is pressed into the pan, with an almost waffle like texture that I didn't ever want to ruin. After admiring it for an hour or so (and getting some pictures) I swiped my finger over the pan and was pleasantly surprised when there was not a speck of fall out. The texture of the shadow being silky and well pigmented.

For me this shade almost matches my foundation, which although you may think is pointless, I absolutely love! I can dab this on my eyes after applying foundation and it really brightens them and another plus is there is zero fallout even when applying. It is also fantastic for using as a base before applying other shadows and it blends like a dream.

The only downfall with this shadow is the packaging, for a high end product it could certainly be more sturdy and attractive. Like the lipstick, it doesn't have that satisfying click when shut and for me that's a must.

Overall, I love this eyeshadow and will get loads of use out of it due to the neutral and workable shade. I love the texture and it applies like a dream. The pigmentation is fab but my staple eyeshadows (the body shop colour crush range) do certainly rival this and for half of the price they are a better deal to me. Will I purchase more MAC shadows... No, probably not, but will I use Brule until I hit the bottom of the pan... Of course!
