MAC described “Lens Blur” as a bright rich violet. A pillow-soft, matte, pressed-powder eye shadow with an ultra-creamy texture that delivers a beautifully diffused, blurring effect on lids.
It is a soft-matte, cool tone berry color eye shadow.
MAC ‘Lens Blur’ Powder Kiss Soft Matte Eye Shadow has a gorgeous matte berry color with cool undertones. It had a soft consistency that was slightly powdered yet felt more velvety, almost smooth to the touch, but not as opaque as I was expecting. It provided semi-opaque, buildable color coverage.
I love this powdery eyeshadow and glides smoothly across the lid. However, it is not as pigmented as it looks in the pan.
So, on medium to deep skin tones, this color might not show up well. But there are other ways you can still pull it off.
You can apply a light foundation on your lid to help this color appear in its original form. You might need a generous amount of shadow for application unless you want to throw a soft color on eyelids in a jiffy.
MAC describes it further, the velvet comfort you love on your lips – now for your lids. Experience a weightless kiss of color with Powder Kiss Soft Matte Eye Shadow. Enwrap eyes with pillow-soft, matte color using Soft-Focus Filter Technology that delivers a beautifully diffused, blurring effect. The highly blendable, the luxurious formula smooths onto lids with unbelievable slip. Its exclusive Cream Matrix formula allows for an ultra-creamy, exceptionally soft, and gliding texture. This next-generation matte formula is available in lip-toned colors translated for the eyes.
I was looking for a good deep berry color eye shadow under my budget. Last year Black Friday there was a deal on the MAC website for 40% off on eyes. I could not take my eyes off of lens blur and bought a refill pan.
So, I would say MAC’s powder collection is good but since its name “Powder Kiss Soft Matte Eye Shadow” focuses on being very soft matte appearance that offers very less opacity.
At least Lens Blur is not so bad and I use it happily. But guys If I compare, I wonder, how the lighter shade will appear on eyelids when the opacity is the real issue.
Anyways, since it’s summer, I enjoy applying this shadow during day time followed by eyeliner and mascara. Job done 😀.
It is a permanent eyeshadow that retails for $23.00 (USD) and contains 0.05 oz.
