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.
