Formula Overview

The method is meant to be a “highly pigmented powder” that goes on “evenly and blends well.” MAC eyeshadows run the gamut from whole failures to long-time, cult-favorite staples. In normal, the everlasting line has been extra constant in performance–and greater efficiency at that–compared to restricted version launches, however it may actually rely.

The Matte end tends to have a firmer press and a little bit of thinness in comparison with different matte formulation in the marketplace, so MAC matte eyeshadows have a tendency to construct up higher and have higher wear-time with out fallout as they don’t seem to be powdery in any respect. Some of the newer matte end shades have had a extra velvety high quality to them that offers them a softer really feel however aren’t powdery; these have been simpler to mix and are sometimes extra pigmented in a single layer.

The Lustre end is designed to have sheerer pigmentation, and it typically has extra sheer to medium protection with a drier, dustier consistency that may be onerous to use with a dry brush. Lustre end shades can undergo from fallout throughout software, too. They are the old-fashioned model of an eyeshadow “topper.” I’d advocate making use of with a fingertip or making use of with a dampened brush to get smoother, extra even protection and decrease fallout.

The Satin end is few and much in-between, however it’s softer and extra yielding than the Matte end however performs equally. They are inclined to have very low sheen however are fairly blendable with medium to opaque protection. It could be simple to combine the end up with the Velvet end, which has extra of a sparkle-over-matte impact however are extra powdery than the true Matte end.

The Frost end is extra firmly-pressed into the pan however would not have fallout, is commonly pigmented, and blends out effectively sufficient. They can generally be a bit of drier to the contact relying on how a lot shimmer is within the shade. The Veluxe Pearl end is among the creamier takes throughout the vary, and newer shades launched within the end are inclined to have extra reasonable, silicone-like slip. I’ve discovered that Veluxe Pearl end shades are inclined to have extra semi-opaque pigmentation and are extra constant in efficiency than among the different finishes.

One factor I’ve discovered with MAC eyeshadows is that they have an inclination to last more with out primer than the common model (eight hours). While some eyeshadow shades do not swatch effectively, they typically apply higher in practice–as in on the eyes!–than simply swatched on the pores and skin. They could be fairly hit and miss, they usually have inconsistencies between releases (see Carbon and its sordid evaluation historical past!).
