Matte2 is a collection of highly pigmented eyeshadows and the best part about them is that they are now a permanent part of MAC’s eyeshadow range. This new eyeshadow’s formula is new for MAC, they are jet-milled with a high percentage of pigment. Sometimes you really need to layer on matte shadows to get a good color payoff but with these that is not necessary. That’s not to say that you can’t really pack on the color until your hearts content. To the contrary, you absolutely can. The texture of these eyeshadows are extremely soft, like silk to the touch. I also really like that the collection combines bold color with more everyday neutral colors. My favorites include Blanc Type, Poison Pen, Copperplate and Flourishing.
How about some eyeliner for those matte eyeshadows? The shades Inky, Inkspill, Electrolady, Point Black and Coco Bar are being repromoted as well.
Also at MAC Cosmetics counters and stores today is Plush Lash mascara. This new mascara comes in two shades; Plushblack and Brownette. The wand is a little different from the wands we’re seeing in mascara these days, it’s got a v-shaped wand. The flat side of the wand pushes the lashes up and the fuller side separates, combs them through and adds volume. I had zero clumping when I applied this and I loved the way my lashes looked. Also, if black mascara is a little too dark for you, give Brownette a try. I’m using the mascara in this shade and the color is not too light, it’s like your natural lashes only better.
