Soba is a neutral shade unlike any other in MAC’s collection because it is a straight gold-brown, truly a dirty gold brown shade. Typically I love anything and everything gold, but for some reason Soba fell short for me. I don’t know why, but it just looks odd on me and definitely isn’t one I see myself reaching for outside of the site on a normal, everyday basis. It made me look really tired. Ugh! I found it incredibly difficult to blend out of the crease if too much was applied; if you’re planning on wearing it there, apply a small amount with a fluffy brush like MAC’s #217, 286 or 224. If I had a favorite way to wear this one, it’d be #7. Strange one for me, still can’t understand why I don’t like it! How do you like Soba?
