Beautiful !! I love a good matte colour. This shade is great for the inner corner of the eye and the brow bone because it brightens without looking chalky. I hate the frosted look of shades like Phloof for example. Blanc Type has a beautiful light beige undertone that makes it wearable anytime, anywhere.
This is the ONLY hilight I use lol. I don't wear shimmery eyeshadows that much anymore and I've gotten into using mac eyeshadows like a mad man! This is awesome! It is just a whiteish color and it rocks lol.
I absolutely ADORE this color...it goes with pretty much everything and can be used as a highlight color too. I find it super blendable and long lasting. I tire of colors very easily, but I see repurchasing this just because it is so universal. If you are just starting out with MAC, this would be a good one to start with.
Love, love, LOVE Blanc Type! This eyeshadow is definitely count a staple for me. I have a pro pan of Blanc Type in my mac quad, and a pot of Blanc Type in my makeup bag. This eyeshadow matches my very fair skin, and is just so useful for brightening my morning eyes in a hurry, brushing it over my lids, at the inner corners of my eyes, and all around my eye socket area beneath the brow. If I end up wearing colored eyeshadow, I'll use Blanc Type to clean up harsh lines, and fix mistakes (like when I accidentally brush my crease color too high up near my browbone). I brush it around the outer corners of my eyes and below my eyeliner to catch any smudges or stray shadow.
Would never want to be without Blanc Type! Try it if you're NW10/15, or just want a lid brightening shade. This would make a wonderful matte highlight on darker ladies. I've gone through 2 pans of blanc type, and will keep buying it as long as they make it (and as long as I wear eyeshadow!). :)
This matches my skin tone when I am winter pale (ghostly, some would no doubt say), which makes it perfect both as a highlight under the browbone, as a blender colour when sotening edges and as a wash all over the lid. I often combine this w/ Bobbi Brown's Cement in the crease, which gives me that natural *but better* look. Throw on some eyeliner and mascara and I'm good to go.
Really soft texture, easy to blend and the colour doesn't change during the day - PERFECT :-))
I love this shadow color. It is a wonderful highlight. I also use it as a base for most of my shadows.
Beautiful, velvet-y colour that makes your eyes look super sophisticated.
Blanc Type is a tiny bit lighter than my beloved Brule, and Blanc Type works as a great highlight colour. The Matte2 formula makes Blanc Type super easy to blend and put on, and the payoff is amazing. Would definitely repurchase.
Love it! I emphatically echo all the positive things written here :) It's a great base, very smooth and creamy. Perfect for my pale skin as a base or a brightener. I use it everyday, and am so happy with it. I particularly like it's effects on the inner and outer corners of my eyes. Totally brightens them up and makes me look less tired. What's not to love? Thanks again, MAC!
I hated this eyeshadow for months after I bought it. Couldn't understand why I couldn't get it to blend well. Then I realized it was a Matte2. LOL. Now that I understand how to work with it I use it nearly every day. Go get it!
