Okay I am going to come right out with it; I have absolutely no idea who Peter and Harry Brant are, but this collection is very interesting because it’s a unisex one. Here’s a look at the MAC Brant Brothers Unisex Makeup Collection. Find it online HERE

MAC Brant Brothers 2016 Unisex Makeup Collection Review

So we all know that makeup for men is totally a thing. Tom Ford has had an excellent bronzer for ages and has just added a brow gel for men – both really good. I quite like to use the bronzer myself. But what I really like about this is that it isn’t makeup for men, or women, it’s just makeup for whoever wants to wear it. I genuinely think if I was male, I’d wear makeup.

In case you wanted to know, these boys are New York socialites and the sons of supermodel Stephanie Seymour and Peter M. Brant, who is a businessman, art collector, and philanthropist.

MAC Brant Brothers Eyeshadow Palette

MAC Brant Brothers 2016 Eye Palette

I love the black glossy packaging of this palette and the shades are all really useful. I love the texture of them all apart from Carbon really, which I think is only really good used as an eyeliner. It isn’t the best formulation to be fair – I always get a bit disappointed when I see it in a palette, although I am not sure what other people think.

MAC Brant Brothers Eye Kohl

MAC Kohl – El Dorado

Now I adore MAC Kohl pencils and the gold shade of El Dorado is just stunning. I think I am going to get a lot of use out of this.

MAC Brant Brothers Pro Sculpting Cream Duo

Pro Sculpting Cream Duo Tryphaena & Cleopatra

This is a great little duo and the cream texture is very easy to work with and easy to apply and blend with fingers or a brush. The highlight shade is a subtle one, no high sheen or glitter, and the contour shade is neutral enough to create a natural shade, with a touch of warmth to enliven the complexion.
