The World Needs MAC Powder Kiss Soft Matte Eyeshadow In Their Life

You know what the world needs right now? More matte eyeshadow! MAC Powder Kiss Soft Matte Eyeshadow is here and ready to make your matte dreams come true. I just purchased some of these and ladies and gents I am an official adult now. Why? Because never in my life have I ever been so excited about matte eyeshadow before. You know, several years ago I’d have told you that matte eyeshadow was the devil’s work. I hated the finish! It always applied so patchy for me and I was a shimmer-a-holic. Believe me if you have problems with patchy or dry matte eyeshadows it’s true when people say to you, “You’re probably using the wrong brand!” It’s not to say mattes haven’t evolved. I truly believe mattes are considerably better nowadays than they were ten years ago. The formulas are silkier, they are easier on drier eyes, and they just blend better. But it is true that when it comes to mattes there are some brands that do ’em well and others that fail badly at them! I have hopes that MAC Powder Kiss Soft Matte Eyeshadow is a formula that does well!

Available in 10 gorgeous shades these mattes have a good deal of naturals but wait, how about that bold, bright red or that gorgeous bold purple! This formula is inspired by the MAC Powder Kiss Lipstick formula and promises a pillow-y soft formula with creamy like texture that diffuses on lids in smooth, seamless color.

The formula sounds lovely but the colors are really quite a conversation starter as well! These are some bold matte shades. I’m wondering if they are eye safe (I contacted MAC to see what they say) and if they will produce any staining. We’ll have to see if they reply or I’ll have to wait to get my package to see the labeling in the back.

MAC Powder Kiss Soft Matte Eyeshadow are available now.

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Debbie Downer bringing the probable news. These are likely to be an LE run, as are most innovative products. I forget most of the names. That bouncy blush comes to mind. Before CP got the title for ‘Now You See It; Now You Don’t’ MAC had it. It’s not very often that MAC takes an LE and runs with it, expanding the shades and making them perm. MAC is more likely to take the Get ‘Em While They’re Hot approach. Isn’t that what happens when you love something?

    Isabell, that’s a good thing to ask if they’re eye safe! Thanks for doing so, let’s hope MAC will give you a response. Isn’t it a shame that the consumer needs to take it upon themselves to find out? Up until I had a horrible reaction, I had NO IDEA that many eye palettes contained shades that spouted some bullshit such as “not safe for the immediate eye area”. What the hell?!?! Now I won’t even bother with any palettes, no matter how much I may like the swatches, that isn’t completely eye safe. I can’t help but think of it as false advertising. Sure maybe somewhere in teeny tiny lettering they state this warning but why do it to us in the first place? I expect to be able to use an eye palette/eye shadow on my eyes, know what I mean? This really hits a nerve. On a positive note, that purple shadow looks good:)

      No reply yet but will update ;-D I get my shipment today so mac might not reply before that I’ll just look on the back of the box! It’s pretty crazy that we need to do the research first 🙁 It sucks! pressed pigments, glitters, etc are my biggest pet peeve with so little disclosure about eye safety!
