Well, I’m not at New York Fashion Week (someday!), but it’s an important week nevertheless. I finished swatching nearly all of MAC’s current eyeshadow shades, and I’ll be posting them — organized by finish — all this week.
I’m pretty excited; this is a big step in making “The Next Best Thing” a comprehensive makeup resource and reference guide. At some point, I’ll swatch all these shadows again, organized by color, but out of respect for the non-MAC fans out there, that’s a subject for another week.
So to kick off “MAC Week,” here are MAC Matte and Matte². What’s the difference between the two? Well, my opinion is “not much,” but according to MAC, the Matte² is jet-milled and better for packing color. MAC Eyeshadows are $14.50.
