MAKE Matte Finish Eyeshadow

We love a shimmery shadow, but often we find ourselves in more of a matte mood. If you’re looking to add a bit of color without any shine, consider this velvety shadow. Cement, a medium grey, is perfect for a daytime smoky eye, and we love dabbing a bit of Alabaster, a peachy ivory, in the corners of our eyes as a quick brightening cheat. Darker shades like Purple Sage and Burnt Umber will instantly up the glam factor.

Nice alternate to shimmer

I love shimmer shadow, but it's nice to have matte options as well. I find that as I get older, the matte colors do not accentuate my wrinkle as much as shimmer. It's in nice shades too.

review

I got the burnt umber color and I love it. Perfect for smoky eye or just to wear by itself.

Eye shadow

I love the new make up. My eye shadow is a nice subtle color that will go with anything. It is very pretty. I am excited! It is nice!

Really nice consistency
Purchased

I love the true matte consistency, and it goes on really well. However, I find the purple color to be awkward; I know they were going for the "universal purple", but it's too stuck in between brown and purple to actually be pretty/flattering. I would definitely consider buying it in a different color though. As others mentioned, the sample is very small.

Best grey shadow

I recieved the Cement shade in my box and love it! It is great for daytime when you want a little edge to your look without being too dark. Love the packaging, very mod.

Silkiest shadow out there...

This shadow has a very high pigment. It feels great on the lids and is easy to blend. I wore it without a primer and it looked great.

Cement eye shadow

I got my sample yesterday and didn't think I'd like it. The color is wonderful, deep enough without looking over-done. It does need a primer if you want long-term coverage however.

Pretty color

I received the purple sage in my march birchbox. It's a very pretty color but TINY sample. It glides smoothly and has a good payoff.

Really liked...

I got a sample of this in my box this month. I just tried it and really liked it. It blends very well and stayed on all through work today.

Understated Elegance in Bold Colors

For those who care about the details of their eyeshadow, MAKE's Matte Finish ticks every box: (1) the formulation is smooth and consistent; (2) it may take a few layers of application with a brush to achieve the pure pigment color in the compact, but that also allows for more subtle, less intense application of color and easy blending; (3) there is no transfer or "fallout" to the upper cheek or lower lid; (4) pigment is true and long-lasting throughout the day; and (5) when used with a quality primer, no creasing.

I currently own both Purple Sage (available here), a deep, muted purple that adds drama with my fair skin, and Poppy (not currently available on Birchbox, but along with many other colors for purchase on MAKE's own site), a bright orange that really makes my blue/green eyes pop. Most importantly for buying online, MAKE describes both the primary color and the undertone with admirable specificity, making it so much easier to match shades to skin tones and eye colors.
