Product Review: MAC Eyeshadow in Blanc Type

For all the porcelain skinned girls out there, let me introduce you to the perfect matte beige eyeshadow. MAC’s ‘Blanc Type’. This has been my go-to base powder eyeshadow since the day it arrived on my doorstep. It’s the perfect neutral for my eyes, and I wear it on it’s own, or layered under other shadows, depending on the look I’m going for. It was incredibly hard to swatch as it’s basically the same colour as the skin on my arm, but I did my best.

To be honest it’s not the smoothest of eyeshadows that I’ve ever used, and I’m not sure if that is something that happens a lot with MAC matte shadows, as this is the first I’ve ever used. I do still love it though, and as I mentioned earlier I’ve been wearing it practically every day. The MAC eyeshadow ‘Blanc Type’ retails for $33 AUD at the MAC Australian website, but you can currently snatch it up for $19 AUD over at Strawberrynet.

    Are mattes mew for Mac? My go to neutral from them is called modest tone, it looks a lot like that but with a bit of shimmer. I will have to check this out, as it looks less so.

    • I’m not sure if they’re new, I don’t think so though. This is the first and only matte shadow I’ve had from MAC though. I’m definitely interested in checking out more!

  3. Love Blanc Type, it’s lovely. I’m excited about Eyeshadow Week! I love themed things… I don’t know why I don’t do any on my blog, I don’t know if I’m organised enough :-/
