It's Vintage

MAC It’s Vintage Powder Kiss Soft Matte Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a deep, purplish-taupe with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which was buildable to full coverage with less than a second layer.

The texture was soft, smooth, and finely-milled, which ensured it was blendable. It lasted nicely for eight hours before fading visibly on me.

Formula Overview

$20.00/0.05 oz. - $400.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "pillow-soft, matte colour" that is "highly blendable" with "unbelievable slip" that has "stay-true colour" that doesn't fade, crease, or dry out the lids. The majority of the shades were pigmented, though a few were more semi-opaque and buildable.

The texture was soft, smooth, and slightly powdery in the pan--softer and more yielding than the standard MAC matte eyeshadow--but had more glide for better adhesion and blendability on bare skin. The eyeshadows stayed on well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

They're thinner and a bit more powdery than the long-discontinued Matte2 formula, though it was more like that finish than the current, matte finish in the brand's permament range of eyeshadows. They were easier and more forgiving to work with than a lot of MAC's eyeshadows, so they were improved and a nice addition to the brand's range (they're also available as pan-only for less).

Such a Tulle

MAC Such a Tulle Powder Kiss Soft Matte Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a light lavender with cooler undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-sheer pigmentation with a moderately powdery, slightly drier and more loosely-pressed texture, which likely accounted for some of the sheerness. It wore decently for seven hours before fading noticeably.

I think the It’s Vintage single is perfect – awhile ago I was looking for a matte plum taupe shade for my twin sister, who LOVES this colour and just could not find it anywhere I looked. So I will get this one for her. And this one rates really well, as compared to the dupes, which were sadly lacking in either pigmentation or quality. For once, for me, MAC has delivered. I just hope it reaches the Australian shores.

Other than It’s Vintage, I’m not feeling a way about any of these. At best, they’re passable. But I really do love It’s Vintage!

It’s Vintage I could dupe but Per-suede Me is a nice change of pace I’ll have to check to see if I can dupe it, I like trying unique colors.

Based off the quality of Vintage, I am hoping they come out with a replacement for Typographic in this formula. It seems to be super similar to Matte2.
