Well…this collection is definitely outside my comfort zone. The first time I saw the new Dare Hue! Brow Pencils from the MAC Soft Serve collection ($16.50 each, available online May 26, 2016; in stores June 2 through July 14), I kept asking myself, “Are these definitely brow pencils? Because maybe these are really supposed to be eyeliners.” But, no, these are definitely brow pencils.
These six pastel-hued eyebrow pencils are pretty impossible for me to pull off with my coloring, but I gotta hand it to MAC for totally stepping outside the box. This is the kind of crazy-unique product that I expect from MAC, and I think it’s cool that the brand is still staying true to its non-traditional roots!
These have a very thick, waxy texture, typical of most brow pencils. The bottom shade (What A Highlight) is described as a soft white-gold highlighter, and I’m wearing it in the picture below.
As you can see from the swatch, it’s quite sheer, so it only gives the lightest hint of subtle shimmer. I actually like it as a super subtle way to highlight my brow bone, which is usually a step that I skip because I don’t like to have a very intense highlight in that area.
I had fun with this look! 🙂 In case you’re interested, I’m also wearing Giorgio Armani Maestro Glow in 8 (review and swatches in this post here) // MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Dark // MAC Soft Serve Shadows in Jealous Girl and Softened Up (review and swatches coming soon) // MAC Dare Hue! Brow Pencil in What A Highlight // Burberry Lip & Cheek Bloom in Purple Tulip (on my cheeks and lips, and reviewed here in this post) // Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Dark Brown // Dior Brow Styler Gel in Brown (review in this post) // Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara // Pixi Glow Mist (aaaand reviewed in this post).
I’ll have more MAC Soft Serve reviews up soon, but here’s a question for you: would you rock pastel brows? I’m dying to hear what you think about these!
