m.a.c Soft Brown Matte Eye Shadow Review, Pictures & Swatches

I love transitioning colors, they make such big of a difference it makes on your eyes ! 
Soft Brown is one of my all time favourite colors to use, I always start off with a transition color in the crease with what ever look I do. It really helps to tie in your colors together and make them blend flawlessly, its a hero to every look.
m.a.c soft brown is a soft golden peachy brown color with a matte finish, It is very warm when swatched, it shows up very well on darker skins, like mine, I'm NC35. But it also looks great on people with paler skin ! It might just show off a bit more orangy than it looks though.

It is a very nice and smooth, easy to apply, no fall outs, easy to blend.
It's not just great as a transition crease color, this looks practically great as a all over lid color too, ever since I got this color, I wear it whenever I cannot think of what to do on my eyes on the day. And it always turns out great.

This little pot of magic is AUD$33 for 1.5g of product, it sounds over priced for a m.a.c product, but shipping is god amoungst cosmetics brands here. I asked for a refill pan, but they said to me that they don't sell it any more unless I go to the pro stores, and being where I am at, there are no pro stores available. I would much prefer a refill pan than a pot, so I can just pop it into my palette and save up all the de potting mess.Tarter sauce.Oh well

The intensity of this color can be build up to it's most opaque or a very light wash of it.
I usually use a sigma E40 to blend this in the crease.

This is one of their fabulous transition colors, if you are looking for other colors that you could use for the same purposes with a matte finish, I recommend you to have a look and swatch at
