We know how confusing Mac shopping are usually (you can check out our help guide Mac foundations here) but without doubt it\’s always enjoyable to wander around their counters, browsing and swatching such as a devil.

When I worked there, I often saw that people would buy an eye shadow they loved, then keep returning and obtain brand new ones in the different colour. Even so they could realise that the feel wasn\’t identical to the first and turn into unhappy using their purchase. And what with all the eye shadow pots being identical, it is really an easy mistake to produce.

Within those round little pots of make up, one can find actually seven different textures of eye shadow. Here\’s a run-down in the different kinds of texture.

1: Veluxe pearl– e.g: All of the Glitters, Satellite Dreams

These are exactly like Frost however with really a metallic, pearly and shimmery finish. Really creamy in texture, and highly pigmented.

2: Frost – e.g: Amber Lights, Bronze, Frost

These have small shimmer particles that produce a shining iridescent appearance. They might vary from metallic to minimally shiny, shimmery but is not glittery.

3: Matte– e.g: Aqua, Omega

These don\’t have shimmer, sheen or glitter. there are actually true matte in finish.

4: Satin– e.g: Arena, Brule,

These one\’s are most confusing since they vary in finish. Some are completely matte (Brun) while?some are frosty (Shroom). The majority have a very?subtle sheen or demi-matte?appearance.

5: Velvet-e.g: Beauty Marked, Vanilla

These look matte or demi-matte, numerous employ a hint of glitter in that person (Vanilla) and the like with glitter?that doesn\’t mean the interest (Beauty Marked/ Mulch) and they ones are probably the hardest to blend.

6: Veluxe– e.g: Brown Down, Kid

Veluxe is?really a unique finish to the Mac shadow collection. It applies matte though with a smoother, less powdery appearance. And in addition they aren\’t as pigmented as matte eyeshadows.

7: Lustre– e.g: Forgery, Pink Venus

Out of the eyeshadow finishes, these include my least favourite. They may have limited colour payoff and so are quite waxy in texture.These people have a glitter/shimmer texture and create a number of fallout.

So next occasion you might be the purchase of a Mac shadow, you should definitely take a look at which texture family it can be from to make sure that you will be making the most of your talent shadow kit.
