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.

Loved the sample- Bought the product
Purchased

It is difficult to find an eyeshadow that is a neutral, but not washed out looking. The matte formulation lasts all day- colors are lovely.

Easy to work with
Purchased

I really like the MAKE matte shadows. You can get subtle color with them and they blend nicely. I use my fingers instead of an applicator. I received the cement color as a sample and decided to try the purple sage--they go very well together.

Awesome Eyeshadow!

I got this as a sample in one of my boxes. I got the burnt umber color, and it is beautiful. I use it for creating a smoky eye, and I have received many compliments on this color. It lasts a long time too. I've had this sample for a while, and there is still plenty left.

Tough but great eyeshadow

This eyeshadow is tough to get out of the palette a bit but I have found that it does stay rather well, overall good product

Lovely eyeshadow

I loooves a good eyeshadow, especially if it stays put and I can use it wet or dry. This one is one of those eyeshadows! The color is vibrant and saturated and makes my lids POP! I probably now "need" every shade!

Alabaster tan color good for natural look

I am not big on experimentation with eye makeup so I pretty much always still to my neutrals. This eyeshadow required a little extra elbow grease to get the product out of the palette but I loved the color once it was on. Very pretty and natural.

Beautiful color, hard to apply
Purchased

The purple sage is beautiful, but I found the matte shadow difficult to apply. I use a base before applying my shadow to extend the wear of my shadow so that may have impacted the application of the shadow, but I don't think I'll be purchasing it again.

Cement

I tried the cement color and have green eyes. I like the look of it and it seemed to last about the same as any other eye shadow for me.

good staple

I liked this a lot but it seems better for fairer skin. I ended up giving it to a friend but it looked great on her

Great matt shade

I have a hard time finding good matt shades that dont end up looking flat on the eyelids. I was pleasantly surprised at how 3 dimensional this one looked. The down side is that it seemed to disappear of my eyelids half way through the day.
