This is a great color! I use this almost everyday to either set my base on my eyes or as a highlight. I love the fact that its matte2. This is a color that will look good on every skin tone!! It is a definite must have and I would highly recommend this shade for everyone!!
I use Blanc Type every day as either an all-over color wash or to highlight my brow bone. I have hooded eyelids, so I prefer a matte highlight, and this does a great job. I also have Vanilla, but the Blanc Type just blends better. For reference, I'm NW 20.
I absolutely LOVE the Matte2 shadows. The MA at my MAC store told me that MAC was phasing out the Matte2 shadows but they (the stores) were not given a list so I live in panic of losing all my beloved Matte2 shadows and I buy a backup (and a backup of that backup and another backup) of all my favorite colors everytime I'm near a MAC store or counter, which is once a week!
Blanc Type to me is the matte version of Vanilla, which I also love. Since Blanc Type is a Matte2 shadow and those are super pigmented dense, and velvety, I think they have better color payoff than the other finishes. Certainly Blanc Type shows up better. That's not to say that Vanilla isn't also a fantastic highlighter. It's just that Blanc Type is more dense and super super silky and matte. It's not chalky or powdery at all--none of the Matte2 shadows are. Anyway, I love Vanilla and Blanc Type both equally but Blanc Type is just a little more versatile since I can also wear it all over my lids and then apply winged liner for a retro look. I'm an NC25 and both shades are too light (for my preference) to wear as a base color. For that, I use Brule.
Matte2 shadows are the best matte shadows ever and I sincerely hope and pray that MAC doesn't take them away from us. My other favorite M2 shadows are Graphology and Handwritten. Gorgeous!
Yes, this is a basic off-white, matte shadow. A staple, really. What sets this apart from the standard matte off-white shadow is that the texture is really quite creamy for a matte shadow, and blends beautifully. I use this for my inner corner, to blend with other shadows, as a base shadow all over the lid, and as a highlight. It's also quite pigmented and not as chalky as you might expect it to be. Overall, a solid above-average performer and necessary workhorse for your palette. Will repurchase over and over.
I used to use Vanilla eye shadow, but someone said Blanc Type makes it pale in comparison *urg, puns?*
So I went and got it to see what the fuss was all about. Yeah...so my Vanilla is rather lonely at the moment. I love this shadow. I use it on the brow bone, I love it! It is very matte and not shimmery, so that is good on my brow bone because it does get oily there and I don't want to look like a disco ball and bring attention to that!
I applied it as a powder to my face as well *yeah, I don't know, it didn't bother my skin* it is actually a perfect color for me! I don't do that all the time since I don't really want to go through it that fast and I don't want to take the chance that it MIGHT break me out due to the talc.
Anyways, a great shadow, I will purchase again!
Blanc Type is a matte2 creamy beige color. I've been really into matte/satin finishes lately, so I've been using this everyday as a highlight. I'd probably have to say it's up there with my beloved Shroom... I might even like it more since the texture is so much better. It's not so white that it screams out, "Hey, look at my brow bone!". It gives me a very subtle highlight. I love it. Will keep repurchasing!
A creamy matte white/beige. Great for use as a brow highlight on my PPP skin, or as a lid clolour with either copperplate or fig in the crease. Matches my skintone perfectly, doesn't show up as chalky.
I love this eyeshadow. It's so versatile as a lid or highlight color. It's very smooth and easy to blend. This is my HG staple in my collection.
Gorgeous Brow Highlight! Blanc Type is a Creamy Beige Matte2, I use this a lot when doing a smokey eye look. Place it just under the brow bone and it completes any look perfectly. Sometimes I will also dab it along the inner third part of my lower lashline towards the tearducts to brighten my eyes.
I debated getting this for so long (thought it was too similar to Bisque); since getting it in the FAF sale, I use it frequently and I really like it. The Matte2 formula is super creamy and pigmented. The color is just a great basic off white, makes a perfect neutral highlight on the brow bone. I am hoping that MAC will expand the Matte2s because they are all great.
