Final Verdict: If I wasn’t told what this product was called, I would have referred to them instead as “pressed powder” eyeshadows. They have that “packed” look and are buttery in texture with both shadows being very blendable and can be sheered out for those that prefer a more neutral everyday look. I have been enjoying Nude Beige as a base for other brown shadows as these two shades on their own with their matte finish are not typically my finish of choice. I am a shimmer girl at heart, but know that mattes will become my friend once I become old and wrinkly in the eyelids. The pigmentation is gorgeous though and incredibly comfortable, if not better, to use with fingers for application making these a convenient option when time is of the essence!
Are you a more matte or shimmer gal? Any other matte shadow recommendations?
