MAC By Request: Moth Brown Eye Shadow Comparison Swatches!

I thought that it might be helpful for you to see how Moth Brown compares to a few popular cooler leaning taupes with lavender or purple undertones. Click here for my MAC By Request Review & Swatches.
I thought that MAC Shale (reviewed here), NARS 413 BLKR (reviewed here), and NARS Lhasa (reviewed here) would be good choices to juxtapose to Moth Brown.
You can really see how cool-leaning Moth Brown is when seen next to 413 BLKR-- I think that they would look fantastic worn together.
I am not certain whether or not MAC plans on restocking Moth Brown, but if they do it's well worth purchasing.

  1. Those are amazing dupes! At least there are similar colors around if Moth never comes back xx

    1. Thanks!! Agreed, but you know MAC-- they always repromote-- so my guess is that Moth Brown isn't being seen for the last time!

  2. All those shades are lovely - Moth Brown is a great colour for the autumn. Bring on the dark nights so I can wear lovely winter shades.

    1. Hi Marga- Moth Brown is gorgeous! I I wouldn't say that MAC eye shadows are better quality than NARS though. I will definitely check out your blog! Have a lovely weekend! ;)

  5. Hmmm... I don't know about Moth Brown but you might have convinced me to get Shale instead. :)

    1. In person Shale is more purple than Lhasa-- at least to my eyes!

    2. Which one would you say is more pleasant to use (blending, application, wear time): Shale or Lhasa? I think I might check out Shale (because of the lower price point). It might be an affordable alternative to RBR Delicate Hummingbird, provided it doesn't make me look like I was punched in the eye. :)

    3. ps You're right -- Shale does look more purple in your swatches. I had assumed Lhasa had more of a sheen, causing it to appear more grey in the photo.

    4. Normally I would say NARS has smoother shadows across the board, but Shale is really a very pleasant shadow. So if you prefer the color to Lhasa- then I would say buy the MAC pro pan and save even more money. Ideally it would be great if you could swatch them side by side for the color comparison to see which one you prefer-- and then put it on your fiance's list of things to get you for Christmas :-)

      Shale definitely isn't such a pronounced purple like Delicate Hummingbird, but Shale is definitely a winner in my book. I would definitely swatch it forst though-- because some people have complained that it made them look bruised-- thankfully I am not one of them though.

      Lhasa has some sheen, and it does pull as a browner taupe grey. It's a funny chameleon like color though-- it tends to look pretty different on everyone. I really recommend trying them side by side. <3
