Just in case this helps, I'm an NC37, dark brown hair and brown eyes. I actually purchased Club when I first started with MAC and returned it…I guess the color was a bit intimidating for me at the time. Wish me luck!
So many people online recommend this color. I hope it ends up being a keeper for me! My favorite way to wear it is packed on the lid for a cool twist on a smokey eye… it doesn't show up to well without a good primer though. Good luck! Thanks for this post — it was helpful to a makeup and MAC novice like me. Can I substitute Soft Brown with something from the drugstore? I am just starting out with eye makeup and have a budget to stick to. Depending on which country you live in… Sleek makes eyeshadow palettes that have great matte shades in them.
They aren't available in the US though. I think they are only sold in stores in Europe, but you can order them online and they are very inexpensive. So glad I found your blog. I'm NW15, and a Texan girl as well! That means you understand the heat and the fair skin issues I have, haha. I have been searching for a guide to Mac's browns for at least a week. Thank you so much for putting this together! I'm building a matte palette right now and this is a perfect guide. Thank you so much for your post! Nice selection of browns! A lot of people say that Embark is nightmare and rubbish to blend but I disagree… especially if you use other matteI tried it with Folie and Swiss Chocolate last Friday night and wow almost no blending needed, it was just sooo easy to work with it with another mattte shade in this case Folie that it has become one of my favourites.
Hey I am a woman of color NW43 and I just wanted to say that I greatly appreciate you adding a guide for people with darker skin tones or people who wanted to do a darker eye. Just wanted to say thanks! Also, on the off chance you are still answering questions, is there a MAC shade that is similar to Handwritten? I am late to this party, but I am just now finding your blog and am obsessed with it! Your product knowledge is so insightful, and the looks you've done are beautiful!
Plus, you are pretty much my exact skin tone and eye color, which works out great for me! Thank you so much for making this post! I really hope you continue blogging!
