Give Me Glow Matte Shadows Reviews & Swatches (Round 2, Part 2 of 5)


Tigerlily

Give Me Glow Tigerlily Matte Pressed Shadow ($7.00 for 0.105 oz.) is a medium peach with warmer, more orange undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which adhered evenly to bare skin and blended out with ease. The consistency was smooth, velvety, and blendable without being too powdery nor too firmly-pressed into the pan. It stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading a bit.

The brand offers matte and foiled finish eyeshadows, though the descriptions are largely the same: “highly pigmented,” “blendable,” and “finely milled.” The difference is with the foiled finish eyeshadows, the brand cautions to use less because they’re that pigmented and going in with a heavier hand could cause flaking.

The matte eyeshadows are very pigmented with textures that ranged from soft, velvety, and blendable to soft, more substantial but not as silky or as finely-milled that had true-to-pan pigmentation but were not as blendable. The deeper shades tended to be a little harder to diffuse, especially along the edges, for a seamless blend. Ideally, one would use a mid-tone and lighter shade to soften the edge of a darker matte shade rather than counting on the matte to diffuse perfectly on its own.

The upside is that the deepest mattes are really intense–they’re rich with lots of depth and have opaque, even coverage; it’s just that edge can be harder to navigate. I preferred using smaller, more precise brushes, especially for areas like the deeper crease, to darken and then build up as necessary, and I’d use a lighter hand with shades that were harder to work with. They are also harder to dupe as many brands lack the intensity and depth, so some might be willing to trade-of blendability for intensity and uniqueness.

Some of the matte eyeshadows–often lighter and more mid-tone–were very blendable on their own along with having full coverage. There were a few of the darker and richer mattes that were slightly more effort to soften along the edges but not truly difficult. There was just some inconsistency in the ease of application with the matte finish. They tended to wear between eight and nine hours before fading noticeably.

They come in oversized pans (relative to average size) at 37mm, and they contain double the product (0.10 oz.) the average eyeshadow does (0.05 oz.).

MOTD

Give Me Glow MOTD Matte Pressed Shadow ($7.00 for 0.105 oz.) is a deep, more mustard-like yellow with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow was richly pigmented, while the consistency was soft, smooth, and a smidgen powdery in the pan but not problematic on the eye. It lasted well for eight hours before fading visibly.

Americano

Give Me Glow Americano Matte Pressed Shadow ($7.00 for 0.105 oz.) is a medium taupe-brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage that could be built up over an eyeshadow primer, but the texture was slightly thin and moderately powdery, which didn’t prove workable on bare skin. This shade wore decently for seven and a half hours before fading noticeably.

Hey Chick

Give Me Glow Hey Chick Matte Pressed Shadow ($7.00 for 0.105 oz.) is a muted, darker yellow with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was somewhat powdery and thinner than most in the range, so it was better over an eyeshadow primer. It had semi-opaque coverage that could be built up over a primer but not on its own. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading visibly.
