So I finally get down to the matte eye shadow tutorial that was requested of me a while back. Since i'm on a budget, there was only one place for me to get matte eye shadows very inexpensively at PhP148 each.
The Etude House Petit Darling Eyes Matte Eye Shadows
Cocoa #3 darkest chocolate shade
Cafe #2 middle lid shade mauvy pink
Matte #5 all over lid color
the really pale almost vanilla shade. HOLY JEEZ wow. i love this. it's really creamy and super easy to apply. BUT it's not completely matte. this shadow is pigmented as well. a good shade for an all over wash of color.
the mauvy pink shade
the shade i used for my middle lie is equally creamy as the all over lid color i used and swatched on my my middle finger. it's very easy to apply and blend out. this is really matte and as pigmented as you'd expect a shade like this would be.
the dark chocolate shade. this one is really a dark chocolate shade but gives the dark bark shade you'd expect and does not gray out or turn black. this is really pigmented. i had difficulty applying this, it's a tad chalky. in my opinion this would really require an eye lid primer for this to be applied and blended out smoothly.
- has about 9 shades in the matte line, most makeup companies hardly have matte shades
- creamy and pigmented
- DO NOT CREASE
- easy to blend out
- uber cute packaging
Do I recommend these: for sure, for students, for our women that want a more natural looking eye looks with no shimmers
- would be great if they come out with pallets that we can fit these eye shadows into the way mac or elf does.
- the dark shade is chalky
Would I Buy these again. YES definitely.
