Known Dupes: Mystery, UD Busted
Brun is a simple, neutral, muddy, dark brown shade; it’s actually almost black. It left me thinking, “Oh would you just make up your mind as to which color you want to be!” Ha! Unfortunately, Mystery is also and Brun is an exact dupe for Mystery (to see the two compared, click here). I personally prefer Mystery as I found Brun hard to work with in terms of blending. If you’re applying Brun to the crease in a look, use a small amount and apply it with a fluffier brush so it’s easier to blend away. For the combinations I created for this post, I stuck to placing it on the lid, as I liked it better there anyway (personal preference!). I didn’t personally like this color more than likely because I like a little something extra added into my brown shades, like pink, purple or red undertones. Therefore, it stands to reason if you have a cool complexion, Brun may just be the perfect dark brown for you!
