The new Matte2 collection from M.A.C. Cosmetics consists of some wonderful matte eyeshadows. I tend to prefer matte shades, so I was very happy to try these out, along with lipstick from the upcoming Mattene collection.
The company aptly describes the collection as follows:
These eye shadows are jet-milled with a high percentage of pigment for intense buildable coverage. The treated color base delivers density in color and flexibility in even application. These are super deep, pure color eye shadows which are brilliant on skin with one stroke long lasting color. Blends effortlessly and stays color-true.
The micronized base acts as a binder to help adhere to the skin leaving and incredible creamy feel. This ensures even and smooth application with little dusting or flyaways. Powder lasts all day, without creasing or fading. Ophthalmologist tested.
I tried the lovely pink shade, Pen N’ Pink, with the muted gray, Copperplate, for a nice smoky, but mild, day time look. It can easily be taken to night by adding some black eyeliner and building the gray color up a bit more. I also love the purple/gray shade, Poison Pen.
