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.

Great as smoky eye base, not as overall color

I received the Cement sample in march's box. I really liked the texture, but it wasn't great as an overall color (i am very pale with brown eyes and brown hair) I used it as a base for a smoky eye and it worked well. I would recommend using it wet for more intense color

nice

I like this product. It seems to stay on longer than others. The sample was so small though it was hard to work with and gets lost in my makeup box.

to light

I recieved a small sample of this eye shadow. I was surprised it even was an eye shadow, the color is so light you cannot see it.
It might be nice for olive or dark skin.

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.

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!

Ehh its ok

I got a sample of this in a really pale color. The sample was almost too tiny for a brush to fit in and the color was too pale for my skin tone. It was matte and seemed to stay on well, and made a great highlighter color. I think I would purchase this in a darker color for myself.

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.

I really liked the idea of this sample, and since I got it I've tried it as more of an eyeshadow base color for different looks. I received alabaster, which doesn't show up very much at all on my pale skin. however, the quality is nice.

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.
