MAC Unsung Heroes: Textured Eye Shadow

Get in your crease, stat.

MAC Texture is still one of my favorite neutrals in the crease! happy Friday!

Today, on the MAC Greatest Brown Crease Color Hits Tour (geez, it’s going to be a pretty specific tour, right?! .

Oh, the texture! We’ve been talking about several of my all-time favorite brown curl colors over the past couple of weeks, like Swiss Chocolate and Saddle.


And I couldn’t forget the texture.

It’s also a peachy brown, but it’s lighter and less orange than Saddle and darker than Soft Brown, and if you really want to get technical, you can do Soft Brown as your first crease color, then Texture as your second color, and then Saddle as your third.

But that’s only if you’re in the mood to complicate things and carefully go through all the steps in your gradations.

What is the unsung hero of makeup? For me, it’s often an underrated makeup morsel, a perennial product line that’s gone under the radar screen of many a makeup lover but regularly rocks my world. The long-running Unsung Heroes series features some of my favorites.

Texture isn’t just for makeup purists who like to spend two hours on their eye makeup. In fact, if you can’t blend for sh*t and just want something easy, you need Texture in your life as a color/transition eyeshadow, because even though it usually looks matte, it’s technically shimmer and has these little flecks. . Micro glitter in the pan. Most of the time, these stains are imperceptible, but they help make the texture easy to blend.

Texture does its thing in flexing

For some reason, glossy is always easier to blend than matte (I think it has to do with how shimmery bits glide across the surface), so if you’ve tried glossy in your crease but always seem to end up with choppy transitions, no matter what you do, texture It is the cure for confusional diseases.

And don’t even get me started on all the MAC colors that go with it because we’re here to stay until next year. But for starters, you can pair it with Soft Brown, Saddle, Swiss Chocolate, Mulch, Sable, Bronze, Honey Lust, Twinks, Trax, All That Glitters, Teddy, Costa Riche…

It’s great for beginners who want one sweet, easy-to-wear brown shade that goes with just about everything, and also for people who are getting deeper into eye makeup and looking for ways to up their gradient game. I think it should be a MAC for everyone.

The pan in my collection right now is a refill, which retails for $6, but the pan with MAC’s black packaging and flip top goes for $18 in the permanent line.
