MAC’s Brow Duos in Blonde, Brunette and Redhead

Published in: Daily Beauty

MAC Brow Duos from the left: Blonde, Brunette and Rehead ($27.50 each)

Three new brow duos, each with two shades of powder eyeshadow from MAC’s permanent line. The idea is to mix and match to create your own personal shade.

The shadows look light in the swatches but go on darker when applied with a stiff brush (I like the 214 Short Shader or the 266 Small Angle).

For me, these are the easiest, fastest and most natural-looking brow products from MAC’s Stylish Brow collection.

    They do look very light and sheer, I have never actually used powder eyeshadows to fill in my brows. Btw, what are you wearing on your cheeks, it loos really pretty.

      Hi Agata,

      Powder eyeshadow for brows is pretty easy, I think, if you have a brush you like.

      As for the blush, it’s Laura Mercier Oleander.

      How are things on your end? Hope you’re having a nice Weds so far. It’s pretty early here (7:30), so I’m just getting going on my day.

        I am having a wonderful day so far. it’s 11:30 here, and I am off today, just sitting drinking my second cup of coffee, reading beauty blogs and browsing Sephora.com :) Later today I am getting my hair colored :)

    Hmm, kind of look a bit light for my dark, middle-eastern eyebrows.

    Easiest, fastest, and most natural looking? :D Sounds good! Are the pans the same size as the normal MAC shadows? If so, this is a great deal for people who can use it! :)

    I love Anastasia’s brow kit, not sure if I could switch!

    Thanks for the review. I was debating about these but they look so natural on you, I have to give it a try. What are you wearing on your lips? It looks so pretty!

    Not a fan of powders for filling in my brows. Best thing I have ever used for my black eyebrows is Maybelline Color Tattoo cream eyeshadow in Tough as Taupe. This stuff lasts all day and doesn’t come off until I use a makeup remover. Also doesn’t leave all the dust particles around my brows like a lot of powders seem to do. I just put it on with my favorite Mac 208 brush and it lasts me all day.

    I much prefer brow shadows than liners. They’re way more realistic looking. Might try it!

  9. Wow these look quite a bit less pigmented than their actual eyeshadow counterparts. But I guess for brows, a stiffer powder yields more natural results. I might have to pick up the Brunette duo–I’ve been curious about using Coquette on my brows for a while. I’ve used Charcoal Brown in the past and it was close, but no cigar

  10. These look like a nice (and compact) thing to have in a kit. I use eye brow pencil on myself.
