MAC Soot #2 is a moderately cool-toned, dark taupe with a satin finish. It is a discontinued eyeshadow that retails for $17.00 and contains 0.05 oz.
Soot is a dark taupe brown with neutral-to-cool undertones and a mostly matte finish. There were flecks of shimmer in the pan, but they were not visible to my eye except in a magnifying mirror. It had semi-opaque pigmentation paired with a firm, slightly stiff texture, so it wasn't the easiest shade to blend out and could have went on more evenly. This shade started to fade after seven and a half hours of wear.

These saturated shadows in neutral and metallic shades and multiple finishes stay on all day long with non-creasing, eight-hour wear. The result: potent colour payoff that applies evenly, blends well and can be used wet or dry.
