It’s actually hard to find a cool-toned brown that’s permanent AND not only available in a palette. No wonder so many readers are waiting desperately for a brand to release a truly cool-toned set of neutrals! What are your favorites?

  1. MAC Mystery — a medium-dark, neutral-to-cool brown with a matte finish
  2. NARS Bali — a dark brown with subtle, cool undertones
  3. Inglot #363 — a plummy brown with cool undertones and a matte finish
  4. Inglot #326 — a burugundy brown with cool undertones and a matte finish
  5. Ulta Mink — a cool-toned brown with a satin finish
