MAC Typgraphic is everything matte2 eyeshadows are touted to be - matte (of course!), very pigmented, buttery smooth, and quite easy to blend. I prefer it to using a proper black eyeshadow as it gives a slightly softer effect. Plus if you like a darker smokey eye, using Typographic over the lid and a proper black eyeliner along the lashline does half the gradient work for you :P A few things to remember though with using Typographic: Because it is a darker color and has a softer texture, it's easy to get a little too much product on the brush. Tapping off excess from the brush before applying helps avoid fall-out. Another tip, use smaller amounts of the eyeshadow and blend it out, apply more, and build up the color rather than plopping a lot of the color and trying to blend it all out. Just makes life that much easier. All that would be applicable to any dark eyeshadow, though.
Do give MAC Typographic a try the next time you are at a MAC store, especially if you love darker eye makeup as much as I do.
