MAC Brant Brothers Collection 4 Pillars Eye Shadow X 4 & Eye Kohl: Review and Swatches

Disclaimer: The products featured were provided for review.
Created in collaboration with socialites Harry and Peter Brant, the new MAC Brant Brothers Collection features a nice range of color makeup designed for both men and women. Today I have the lovely eye shadows and liners from the collection to share with you. To read on, click........
MAC Brant Brothers Eye Shadow Quad
MAC Brant Brothers 4 Pillars: Eye Shadow X 4 ($43.50 CAD):
This eyeshadow quad comes in a very sleek and shiny plastic compact embossed with the collection logo. The packaging definitely has a more masculine/androgynous feel as the collection is designed with both men and women in mind. The palette includes four very neutral shades. You get a soft pale champagne shimmer, a matte light taupe-brown, a medium taupe-brown matte with subtle sparkles, and a matte black.

Mother's Milk is very silky and smooth and both Sandstone and Mystery are fairly pigmented for mattes. Carbon, however, is very chalky and patchy; I could barely get the color to show up on my arm swatches. I know matte blacks are not easy to formulate but this one is definitely lacking.

MAC Brant Brothers Eye Kohl
MAC Brant Brothers Eye Kohl ($21.50 CAD):
Packaged in simple pencil forms, the Eye Kohls from the Brant Brothers Collection are available in three shades: El Dorado, a bold gold shimmer, Smolder, a matte carbon black, and Paragon, a pearly champagne shimmer.

All three shades are richly pigmented and buttery smooth. As their name suggests, the shades are easily blendable but they aren't smudge-proof. If you are into a more softened smoky look then these will work well but if you like your liners crisp and long-lasting, these aren't the most appropriate.
