MAC Blue Brown Pigment

Hey Dolls!

I wanted to share something with you dolls that I've had for forever but have been sleeping on it. A friend of mines gave me this MAC pigment that she got from a Holiday collection years ago... MAC Blue Brown Pigment!

MAC Blue Brown pigment is a duochrome color. A duochrome color is a color that shifts between 2 different colors. It's like getting 2 colors for the price of 1 ;0)

MAC Blue Brown pigment is brown with blue/green pearl

Here's a swatch of MAC Blue Brown Pigment without any base

Here's a swatch of MAC Blue Brown Pigment with a Black base

When you apply MAC Blue Brown pigment on top of a black base (I used NYX Jumbo eyeshadow pencil in Black bean) the green pearls in the pigment show up. I think this would make a gorgeous smokey eye.

I used MAC Blue Brown Pigment on the outer 1/2 of my lid which for some reason the brown look more reddish brown.

Here's the look I came up with using the pigment

On to the makeup...

Primer: MAC Prep + Prime and MAC Oil Control lotion
Foundation: Revlon Colorstay in Cappuccino
Powder: MAC Studio fix NW50
Blush: MAC Raizin and Pinch me

Inner 1/2 of Lid: MAC Steamy eyeshadow
Outer 1/2 of Lid: MAC Blue Brown pigment
Brow bone: MAC Texture eyeshadow
Highlight: MAC Ricepaper eyeshadow
Outer v: MAC Embark eyeshadow
Liner: Maybelline gel liner in Blackest black
Lashes: Red Cherry #43

I love Blue Brown Pigment! It reminds me of club e/s, but club is a tad bit darker!!! I have a look I want to do using Blue Brown, I just haven't done it yet, go figure! It also looks great with teals and greens!
