Corduroy is another one of your more unimpressive browns from MAC, upon first glance. When I first got it, I knew it reminded me of another brown and I was hoping it wasn’t going to give me the same troubles as that other brown (ahem, Brown Down). I am pleasantly surprised with Corduroy and it turns out that it is everything I wanted from Brown Down. It’s a more neutral brown with a matte formula that is easier to work with than that other color. I did find I had trouble blending it away when applied to the crease, so my favorite ways to wear it have been moreso on the outer half of the lid or as an eyeliner. It’s a nice color with a nice finish, but I don’t know that I’ll keep it.
MAC eyeshadows used:
- Grand Entrance LE (inner half of lid) – could also use ‘All That Glitters’ here
- Corduroy (outer half of lid and lower lashline)
- Brown Script (crease)
- Blanc Type (blend)
