MAC's Brule eye shadow is a Satin finish and like all MAC eye shadows it retails for $15.00. If you buy it in pan form it is only $12.00. I originally picked up this eye shadow to use as a highlight shade. Brule is one of those eye shadows that is multi-purpose. You can use it as an all over the lid shade or even in your inner corner to brighten up your eyes. MAC's website describes Brule as a "soft creamy-beige." I would say that the description is pretty true. If you can't afford this but you like the color I would suggest Wet N' Wild's single eye shadow in the color Brulee. They are very similar, but Wet N Wild is only $1.99.
