I was looking for a dupe for Urban Decay Naked 3's Strange - one of my favorite light, matte shadows. Blanc Type is a perfect dupe color-wise, but comes off even more pigmented and doesn't blend out as sheerly as Strange does. If Blanc Type was a bit creamier in texture or layered a little better on top of lid colors I'd give it a five, but overall very happy to find a "better" Strange in a single ES.

Blanc Type is one of the few remaining Matte2 finish shadows. This is a fabulous eye shadow finish/formulation and so it's no surprise that Blanc Type is a "must have" in many people's collections. On me, this is a perfect matte highlight. It's basically the colour of my lids or a bit lighter so it is terrific for blending out other colours or toning down anything a bit too extreme or harsh looking, if you've been a bit heavy handed. It's also one of those shades (there are many) that looks great and classic on its own, perhaps with something just a few shades darker to contour the crease very subtly. On a side note, Mac would be wise to expand the Matte2 range with some new shades, rather than trimming it down. Some of their best-loved, most popular shadows are Matte2 finishes.
