Just when you think shimmering makeup is the be-all and end-all of makeup, here comes MAC with a completely different concept. Its new eye shadow collection, Matte², proves it's hip to be squared. (Oh, you know I love the puns.)
As you'd guess from the name, Matte² is a powder shadow with a matte finish. If you enjoy highly pigmented colors, it'll be a good fit for you—the 16 shades are intense. I haven't tried any of these shadows yet, but I'm curious to see how they work. My girl Temptalia has helpfully put some swatches on her skin so you can see how they look. The bold colors are a little too much for me, but the lighter ones, like Pen 'N' Pink, look beautiful! Matte² is available online and in stores now, so if you're not a fan of the shimmer, go forth and shop.
