MAC Brawn is a slightly warm-toned, medium brown with a satin finish. It is a limited edition eyeshadow that retails for $17.00 and contains 0.05 oz.
Brawn is described as a "mid-tone plum brown [with a Satin finish]." It's a muted, medium-dark taupe brown with subtle warm undertones and a satin sheen. It had good pigmentation, and the texture was soft, silky, and very easy to blend. I could see this being a real workhorse crease shade for some. It wore well for just over eight hours on me. MAC Cocktail Black (LE, $15.00) is darker. Chanel Tisse Rivoli #4 (P) is darker. Urban Decay Vengeance (LE, $18.00) is darker. YSL Saharienne #3 (P) is more shimmery, darker. Tom Ford Beauty Unabashed Eyeshadow #2 (LE) is lighter, cooler-toned. Givenchy Taupe Velours (5) (P, $23.00) is more matte, warmer. Too Faced Woolen Mittens (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery.
