For my second installment of the Tried and True series, I selected one of my makeup staples. By staple I mean that I use this product Every-Single-Day! I acquired Blanc Type e/s when MAC first introduced their Matte2 e/s formula in late 2007. I love matte2 eyeshadows and every single one that I have in my stash is a winner in my eyes. I love that these shades are matte yet apply smoothly not patchy like other MAC matte shades.

Blanc Type is very similar to MAC's Brule in terms of colour (a light ivory) but I find it applies much better. I started using Blanc Type as my brow highlighter instead of Brule as soon as I got it. As you can tell by my picture, this shade gets a lot of love from me. I prefer matte shades as brow highlighter and hence use this one everyday:

    I've swatched it in store, but still haven't gotten it yet =O It definitely feels so buttery and smooth =)

    Then again I just hopped onto the MAC bandwagon ;)

    I also prefer matte colours on my brow bone.

    I guess I never hit pan in any eyeshadow I ever own!
