This is, hands down, my favorite matte light beige/eggshell eyeshadow. I have deep set eyes that are very pronounced. I have to wear a bright shade on my lids, or I look like a zombie/vampire/crypt keeper. I have tried this shade in pretty much every brand you could name: Edward Bess Nude Burberry Trench Trish McEvoy Shell, Champagne, Soft Peach, Demure Mac Brule, Vanilla, Shroom, Bisque, Orb Urban Decay Virgin, ABC gum, Walk of Shame, Foxy, Kinky & Freestyle (from smoked palette) NARS All About Eve (my preference is the less shimmery side), NARS Night Star, NARS Abyssinia Laura Mercier Stellar any and all pale beiges from Inglot Illamasqua neutral quad Too Faced (insert adjective here "smokey, romantic, neutral etc.") palette Stila Chinois, Dune, Eden Pale shade from the Lorac pro palette I realize some of the shades I mentioned above are satins or have low level shimmer, and some are peachier than Blanc Type. I am comparing opacity and length of wear - Blanc Type is superior in all aspects, and try as I might, I can not find anything that tops it. If you must own one MAC shadow, this is it. P.S. Why have I tried this shade in every other brand? I despise traveling with MAC eyeshadows, and I travel often. The new 4 pans are very bulky and take up too much room to merit bringing with me. I literally have blanc type and mystery or brun in an old NARS duo eyeshadow compact that I travel with. So please believe I am trying to find a replacement :)
