Editor's Review
Contains: Sample

Charcoal Brown is a muted, medium-dark brown with subtle, yellow undertones and a matte finish. It had great pigmentation with a smooth, blendable texture that was a smidgen powdery, but it was very easy to use on the lid as it diffused easily. This shade is part of the permanent range. It wore well for eight hours on me. Make Up For Ever M630 Sweet Chestnut (DC, $21.00) is warmer (95% similar). LORAC Vintage (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Becca Ombre Nudes #4 (PiP, ) is darker (95% similar). MAC Princess of Soul (LE, $17.00) is darker (95% similar). Urban Decay Dare (LE, $19.00) is darker (95% similar). Sephora + Pantone Universe Carob Brown (LE, ) is lighter, warmer (95% similar). MAC Clove (LE, $17.00) is warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Fix (LE, $19.00) is lighter (90% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Coco (LE, ) is warmer (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Lover #7 (LE, ) is lighter (90% similar). Laura Mercier Dune (LE, $23.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Viseart Dark Matte #2 (PiP, ) is cooler (90% similar). bareMinerals Namaste (PiP, ) is darker (90% similar). LORAC Dark Brown (PiP, $19.00) is darker (90% similar). Sydney Grace Vanguard (P, $5.00) is less shimmery, brighter, warmer (90% similar). Buxom Star Treatment (P, $12.00) is lighter (90% similar). Stila Being (PiP, ) is cooler (95% similar). Hourglass Infinity #4 (PiP, ) is warmer (90% similar). Stila Warm Taupe (LE, $18.00) is warmer (90% similar). LORAC Brown (LE, $19.00) is lighter (90% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest.

Goes pretty with the right brush. Good for transitioning a black eye or so

I put off buying Charcoal Brown for quite a while because it wasn't as "charcoal-y" as I thought it would be. Finally, I gave in and bought it and intially, I wasn't that thrilled with it because I really thought it would be a bit darker and bit more on the grey side and it seemed sort of "blah". But it's all a matter of what colours you pair it with, I've learned. I really like it in the crease with MAC Sweet Satisfaction on the lid for a polished daytime/work appropriate look that is quick and easy.
