The color is Suspicion, from the NocturnElle collection which was a 2006 holiday collection. I discovered Mac a year ago so that was before my obsession with their eyeshadows, but I managed to find it on my trusty beloved Ebay!
This is a velvet eyeshadow and it's got an amazing color pay-off! I've been using this every single day since I got it. I use it in the crease, outer v and to set my eyeliner on my bottom lashline. As you might have noticed it does have some glittery things to it, but not enough for it to show up when it's applied.
If you can get a hold of this (maybe at a CCO or Ebay?) - then go for it!
A matte dark brown eyeshadow should be a staple in everyone's collection - in my opinion.
If you're a little bit intimidated by Carbon (Mac's matte black eyeshadow), then you must have a brown!
5 reasons why to have a matte dark brown eyeshadow:
- It's perfect to use in the crease,
- outer v,
- line the eyes with either on it's own or to set the eyeliner,
- fill in eyebrows (that is if you have dark eyebrows),
- and it's perfect to create amazing daytime- and nighttime smoky eyes with that are not so dramatic
I do believe these are the only ones Mac have in the permanent collection. Correct me if I'm wrong ;)
(it looks like all of these e/s have some glitter in them, but they don't. It's just transferred from other eyeshadows in my palette ;))Brun is my favorite one and the one I use on most my clients when I do their makeup. It's a very neutral perfect color with great color pay-off.
(Fun fact: Did you know that "brun" is how we say and spell "brown" in Norwegian? - and Sweden and Denmark too ;))
Mystery is fairly new to my collection and I love this because it's a cool colored brown. But as you can see in the pictures and the swatches, it's almost identical to Brun. If you have to choose one - I would go for Brun!
Embark is one of the "You Tube made me do it" purchases... (you know what I'm talking about!). It's a red-ish brown color that I've used... once!? Great color pay-off, but I'm not crazy about the color...
And speaking of You Tube made me do it.. Meet Handwritten! Quite similar to Embark, except this is more plum colored brown. The color pay-off is not
as amazing as Embark, but that's why I like this one. When applied it's a more soft brown/purple color.
If I had to chose one: Handwritten!
