Known Dupes: Handwritten
Brown Down is a matte brown with high pigmentation. It’s one of the more neutral toned browns you’ll find in MAC’s wide array of browns, meaning it doesn’t truly lean red or blue, so it is suitable for both warm and cool complexions. I’ve had this for about two years now and I think I’ve used it twice before doing this post. Ha! This reminds me a lot of Handwritten (a touch lighter though), and I will admit I like Handwritten a lot better. I find Brown Down hard to work with in terms of blending. When I apply it to the crease or add too much to the outer v, it has proven to be a nightmare to blend away! I do like combos #1 and #2 and perhaps they will be the only reasons I keep it in my collection.
