MAC Stubborn Brown is a moderately warm-toned, very dark brown with a matte finish. It is an eyeliner that is permanent in this palette: Brown Eye.

Editor's Review

Stubborn Brown is described as a "deep rich brown." It is a medium-dark brown with a mostly matte finish. It had decent to good pigmentation in a single stroke, while the texture was lightly creamy and didn't tug at the lash line. On me, it wore eight hours on the lower lash line before thinning. It's part of the permanent range. See swatches of all dupes / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC Stubborn Brown is a neutral, maybe slightly warm dark brown, one of those classic colors everyone needs to have in their collection. It's not as rich of a brown as described, it's quite a boring color, but sometimes you need a classic. The pigmentation and opacity is great from the first stroke. Like all MAC Powerpoint pencils it's a slightly creamy formula (while still having some firmness) that glides and smudges easily, but once set stays put on the eyelids. On the waterline it's not that long lasting, it starts fading in a couple of hours and by the end of the day I can't even tell I use it. The pencil sharpens easily and smooth, but I can't get a fine tip. It's good for adding a bit of definition along the lash line, but the creaminess and blunt tip won't allow a fine line (which isn't ideal for people with hooded eyelids). If I want a slightly winged look, I have to use an eyeliner brush to smudge or apply the eyeliner.
