If there's something I have quite a bit of, it's shimmery eyeshadows. Between my millions of palettes and MAC eyeshadows, about 95% have a pearlized or shimmer finish. I don't know why it took me this long to realize that I needed some matte eyeshadows in my life.
Say what? Matte eyeshadows? But, aren't eyeshadows supposed to be shimmery? Well, not necessarily. Look at these amazing looks done with matte shadows. There is nothing prettier than a beautifully sculpted eye.
Anyway, I saw a review for this palette somewhere (can't remember where) and decided I needed it because I needed some matte shadow in my life! I wanted something that was relatively inexpensive and I could create multiple looks from it.
TOO FACED MATTE EYE SHADOW COLLECTION
USING THE PALETTE:
|I am wearing the top row of shadows to create my look, along with a bit of Velveteen Bunny (2nd row, far left) as a highlight.|
- First of all, you can't beat the price of $36 for 9 shadows.
- The pigment is wonderful. The shadows are easy to apply, no fallout whatsoever, and the consistency is rich.
- I find the shadows very easy to blend and create that awesome sculpted look.
- I really like the color selection of the shadows. I find that they are neutral enough but also aren't just a bunch of browns and blacks. I like the thought of having a violet and blue shade in there. I really like the looks it creates.
- The palette is user friendly, and makeup drawer friendly.
- I feel like the top left shade, Tufted Suede, is very close to my eyelid color, and doesn't really provide much for me as far as shadows go. I think it does a good job at evening out the eyelid, but I am just not crazy about the color as something that is supposed to be a highlight. I pretty much only use the other two "highlight" shades as the highlight when I use this palette.
- If you are in need of sprucing up your shadows with some matte pigments, I highly recommend this palette.
Are you a die hard shimmer shadow lover or do you prefer the matte look? Do you have any product recommendations for matte shadows? I would love to hear your input in the comments!
