  • Perfect Dark Brown

    Review by Alexis on April 3, 2015

    This is a perfect crease/outer v color. Just brown. Just matte. Just perfect. No other undertones. Just brown. Very pigmented but blendable. Has a little bit of fallout. My favorite brown.

    Review by Maranda on December 22, 2014

    I wanted Mocha because I wanted a MUG shadow that was a dark, matte brown to go in the outer V. The color is beautiful but it is not as pigmented as other MUG shadows and is harder to blend. It is buildable but if I'm in a hurry, I go for a similar color I have in a drugstore brand that goes on darker and smoother. The bottom line: with other drugstore options that go on darker and smoother, I don't feel the need to repurchase.
  • Perfectly Buildable

    Review by Kelly on November 7, 2014

    I have to say that at first I was disappointed with this eyeshadow, as described as a "deep matte brown" It's a bit harder than other mug eyeshadows I have, and so at first, I didn't think it was as pigmented as it appears in the pan. HOWEVER, I started just using it as a crease color, which I loved because it was not warm. Then I realized how buildable it was, and I'm able to focus more layers on the outer v after sweeping across the crease, and it makes for mistake-proof blending.
  • 5 stars!

    Review by Megan on October 24, 2014

    I already wrote a review on this eyeshadow, but after using this eyeshadow a couple times I couldn't help but think it would be the PERFECT color for my dark, chocolate brown eyebrows. I tried it and I was right! This color matches them PERFECTLY, which I didn't even think was possible. This eyeshadow is matte but not dry, I'd say it's more of a satin matte, which makes it perfect for my oily skin as it sticks to it as opposed to sliding off. It's not too warm on me either, just right. Highly recommend for fair skinned girls like me who are looking for a cheap eyebrow color! Never ever stop making this eyeshadow, this is a really big deal for me.
  • Use it EVERY day!

    Review by Jessica on October 2, 2014

    Perfect texture. Beautiful color. Super pigmented. Ideal outer v color.
  • Holy grail of matte browns

    Review by Fern on August 20, 2014

    I have been searching for the perfect matte brown shade to use as my crease color and I have finally found it! This color isn't too cool or warm toned and I can build it to exactly the color in the pan or dust it lightly for my "no-makeup" days. Please don't ever stop making this shade!
  • Love it!

    Review by Brooke on July 1, 2014

    I have quite a few brown eyeshadows as I'm sure most of us do, but this one is perfect. I feel like it is the brown shade I have wanted many of my others to be. Although it looks similar in the pan to other medium to dark brown shades, two that come to mind are MAC brown down and handwritten, it really compliments my skin tone without showing up muddy or too harsh. It also blends wonderfully. I love this shade and use it in many everyday looks. For reference my skin tone is fair to light with yellow undertones. Will definitely be repurchasing!
  • blackened brown, cool rather than warm

    Review by rodriyaya on July 1, 2014

    The name of this color describes it well: it is a cross between a bar of dark baking chocolate (85% cocoa) and a shot of espresso coffee---hence, mocha. I detect no warmth in it; it's a rather "smoked" or cool blackened brown, like a marshmallow that got too close and too long over a campfire.
  • Like, not love

    Review by rodriyaya on June 30, 2014

    I like this e/s, but I don't love it. It's the least exciting of the shades that come in the starter kit. On my NC 30 skin, it "reads" like a dark brown with a touch of smoke/gray. All by itself it's nothing to write home about, and like others mentioned, it's a bit chalkier that most other MUG eye shadows. However, it is a very neutral shade that pairs well with many other colors, so I find myself adding a bit here and there to round up many looks. Because it's matte, it works well to add definition dark eyebrows. I've applied it, wet, along the lash line too. It's very long-lasting and does not crease. To sum up, while it's neither a formula nor shade to wow, it is versatile. My rating: 3.5 out of 5.
  • How did I miss this great color???

    Review by Jeanette on June 15, 2014

    I have quite a few of MUG eyeshadows. I noticed I had bada bing, and I love it, but I wanted a deep dark mat brown. So while shopping for her new shades, ordered this one and of course love it. It's great for a fair blonde like me for a daytime smoky eye. Love this color too bc it's a true brown, unlike cocoa bear. I love tat color too, but for a accent color. So if you need a deep mat brown, this is great. I looked at MAC's dark brown and liked the intensity of this color better. Thanks MUG team!!
  • The perfect dark brown for fair skin

    Review by Megan on June 14, 2014

    This eyeshadow is just PERFECT. It's the perfect dark color to deepen your eye color, any eye color. Recommended completely! 5 stars!!!!
  • Brows

    Review by Nicole on October 28, 2013

    I use this for my matches perfectly without being too dark. I have dark brown hair and almost black colored eyebrows. this helps lighten my brows to help blend in with my natural hair color. I love it and have already hit pan on one and about to order another!! I do enjoy the makeup geek eye shadows. I was a MAC wearer and now I am ALL makeup geek.
  • Perfect

    Review by Jennifer on September 26, 2013

    On my skin tone (fair with peach undertones) this is the perfect deepening color. I use it any time I need to darken just a tad at the outer corner and under the lash line. My eyes are a medium brown with a terra cotta undertone, so this medium-dark brown is very versatile. I find it to have no gray in it, on me it it's the color of a chocolate bar...yum!
  • Okay

    Review by anja on July 11, 2013

    The color itself is beautiful, but it's much much lighter than the swatch you see here..I was really disappointed, because I was looking to buy a really deep brown, whereas this is a more midtone brown. A very lovely midtone brown and very pigmented, it just doesn't match the photo you see here :)
  • Great colour

    Review by Elspeth on June 12, 2013

    Love this colour! the perfect matte brown to own - a must have! I also use this on my brows for some soft definition. I got it with Unexpected and love using the two together for a neutral look :)
  • Freakin Beautiful color

    Review by Izzy on October 21, 2012

    All I can say is *** ****! I love this color! It is super pigmented, all you need is a little bit and there you go. Its a matte, gosh I am in love. This color is soo versatile also. I don't know about other people but this color is great on me. I am a tan ;), used this for my lid and crease put some chopper from my naked pallete and I put peach smoothie on for smoothing it out. It came out spectacular
  • DISAPOINTED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Review by Oksana on October 10, 2012

    This color was horrible! it was a brown mixed with a little of gray,It was very very ashy!!! it wasnt a dark brown like i thought, it was a ashy brown and thats not a nice color to wear, it looked dirty!! very disapointed....
  • Love it

    Review by Osnat on September 14, 2012

    It's a beautiful dark brown, very pigmented! I use it in the crease all the time, or on the entire lid with cocoa bear in the crease for a more dramatic look... One of my favorite e/s
  • It CREASES!!

    Review by Emma on March 30, 2012

    I got the starter kit, and could not WAIT until I would get it! I was so excited the day my shipment arrived.
    Two weeks later, I hate to say that I'm not that impressed. It's pigmented, but the may just be my skin, but they don't look right. Especially Cocoa Bear and Mocha. And they crease! I am so sad! :(
    I still think you guys are great, I may still buy some different eyeshadows from you...
  • my go to colour

    Review by Bianca on March 19, 2012

    i absolutely love this colour! so much so that I've almost hit the bottom of the pan already!
  • Delicious color

    Review by Mariana on March 7, 2012

    Great eyeshadow.And I can use it for my brows!
  • nice standard brown

    Review by Stephanie86NL on January 11, 2012

    From the starterkit, this is my least favorite. Not only because its a simple matte brown (of which I own a ton), but also because its a bit less smooth than the other MUG eyeshadows from the kit. Nevertheless it IS very pigmented!! And if you don't own a darker brown, this would be a great eyeshadow to start with.
  • Just okay....

    Review by savvyhic88 on December 22, 2011

    Although I think this color brown is a staple that should be in anyone's makeup collection, I don't feel that the pigmentation is all that great. It's not very smooth and does not glide on as well as the other shadows. I'd skip this one.
