Hmmmm…I’ll have to go with:

1. Satin
2. Frost
3. Matte
4. Glitter

I think 1-3 are versatile and easy to work into any look whether it’s for day or night. I placed glitter last because I think it’s a little tougher to work with and you can’t wear it everywhere.

I don’t have a particular favorite, and honestly like them all, equally. They each have their own specific purpose, and their own individual charm. If I were to take my Top 20 shadows, I’d more than likely find an equal amount of each within the group. That said, I do wear glitters the least often, but that’s *only* due to having to conform within a certain image. If it were up to me, I’d wear them alot more.

Glitter Glitter Glitter, Satin, Matte, Frost.. What about lustre or veluxe pearl or whatever those names MAC has for them?

I think the Lustre’s fall into the category for glitter and Veluxe Pearl into the category for frost. At least that’s where I’d place them.

1. Satin 2. Matte 3. Frost 4. Glitter (Matte and Frost sometimes switch places with each other in rank, though.)

Satin, frost, glitter then matte. I just feel like I have a hard time with mattes……need more practice I guess.

Some mattes are more “user friendly” than others, in my experience. MAC has a Matte2 formula that is fabulous but there are very few colours available, no new ones being added and I get the feeling they’re almost being phased out, as they’ve discontinued one or 2 of them already.

Satin, Frost, Matte, Glitter – same as you, Christine 🙂 I have trouble working with matte shadows sometimes and I’m just not a huge fan of glitters. Satins and frosts, though, I love.

1) Frost 2) Satin 3) Matte 4) Glitter

I placed glitter last because they can be hard to work with because of the fallout. It’s really time consuming whenever you have to clean up.

1. Matte
2. Frosst
3. Satin
4. Glitter (Technically if it wasn’t included in the choices, glitter wouldn’t even make my list. I hate it and NEVER use it!)

1) Matte
2) Satin
3) Frost
4) Glitter

Hate glitter e/s the fallout and cleanup is just too much to be bothered with. 1&2 are pretty much joint 1st to be honest.
