P for potent

MAC P for Potent Powder Kiss Soft Matte Eyeshadow ($ 20.00 for 0.05 oz.) Is a medium black plum with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had a semi-opaque color yield paired with a soft, slightly powdery texture that was smooth and finely ground and had good adhesion to the bare skin. The product was applied evenly and faded out without difficulty. Visible fading was evident after eight hours of wear.

Formula overview

$ 20.00 / 0.05 oz. – – $ 400.00 per ounce

The formula is said to have a “pillow-soft, matt color” that is “highly mixable”, with an “incredible slip” that is “true to the original color” that does not fade, wrinkle or dry out the lids. Most of the shades were pigmented, but some were more opaque and buildable.

The texture was soft, smooth, and slightly powdery in the pan – softer and more pliable than the standard MAC matte eyeshadow – but had more lubricity for better adhesion and mixability on bare skin. The eyeshadows stayed good for eight hours before noticeably fading.

They’re thinner and slightly more powdery than the long-discontinued Matte2 formula, although it looked more like this finish than the current, matte finish in the brand’s permanent eyeshadow range. They were easier and more forgiving to work with than many of MAC’s eyeshadows. As a result, they have been improved and are a nice addition to the branded range (they are also available as pan-only for less).

A little tamed

MAC A Little Tamed Powder Kiss Soft Matte Eyeshadow ($ 20.00 for 0.05 oz.) Is a vibrant, darker coral red with warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was soft, smooth, and incredibly finely ground with a touch of powderiness in the pan, but it mixed well and didn’t shimmer out too quickly. It had an opaque pigmentation that lasted eight hours before visibly fading.

Good jeans

MAC Good Jeans Powder Kiss Soft Matte Eyeshadow ($ 20.00 for 0.05 oz.) Is a dusty, medium blue with neutral to warm undertones (it’s a bit greenish) paired with a matte finish. The consistency was slightly powdery, which caused it to shimmer slightly when applied. So I would recommend using it over an eyeshadow primer. It had a semi-opaque pigmentation that stayed decent on me for seven and a half hours.

These bags are designers

MAC These bags are Designer Powder Kiss Soft Matte Eyeshadow ($ 20.00 for 0.05 oz.) Is a darker yellow with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had a semi-opaque paint cover that adhered evenly to bare skin and faded out well, although it was difficult to build up without the use of an underlying eye shadow primer. The texture was soft, finely ground, and very smooth without being too powdery. It carried well for eight hours before it faded a little.
