Camel

Glaminatrix Camel Matte Eyeshadow ($7.30 for 0.07 oz.) is a soft, peachy orange with warm, yellow undertones and a matte finish. The texture was smooth, velvety, and more substantial, but it was quite powdery in the pan; I was surprised that it wasn’t prone to sheering out when I applied it to my lid. The eyeshadow had opaque coverage when applied to bare skin and blended out well with only light fallout during the initial laydown of color.

Formula Overview

$7.30/0.064 oz. – $114.06 Per Ounce

The brand doesn’t have any real specific claims on their eyeshadows, but the swatches they showcase show their line of eyeshadows to be pigmented. The exception would be shades classified as “Duochrome Toppers,” which have a translucent base, though they are packed with shimmer and tend to show up more opaque as a result (both my in experience as well as in their swatches).

The brand has three primary finishes: matte, foiled, and duochrome topper. The matte eyeshadows, which sometimes are classified as matte pressed pigments, are very pigmented, silky-smooth, and blendable, but they are incredibly powdery in the pan. I was surprised that I didn’t get much fallout during application, but there was a lot of excess powder kicked up in nearly every matte shade I tested out even when I tried to use a light touch. I found that the ultra finely-milled formula tended to adhere well to bare skin and was more forgiving of dryness than the average matte eyeshadow.

The foiled eyeshadows are high-shine with soft, more loosely-pressed textures (on the whole) that picked up readily with a dry brush, had good adhesion, and had minimal to light fallout, depending on the shade. The shades were higher shimmer seemed more loosely-pressed, while the shades that yielded more of a metallic sheen/pearly sheen were more firmly-pressed (in comparison).

The duochrome toppers are similar to the foiled eyeshadows, but they had higher sparkle/shimmer in them with a translucent base, so the more it was sheered out, the more translucent it appeared. If one picked up and patted it onto the lid, the effect was fairly pigmented. I had a little bit of fallout during application using this finish dry, so I’d recommend using them with a fingertip or a dampened brush for application.

Overall, the formulas are impressive across the board with only a few shades that were under-performing–and they typically were shades that tend to be harder to get perfect (e.g. matte purple). I enjoyed working with the eyeshadows and putting together looks, as they were easy to work with, delivered on pigmentation and blendability, and wore between eight and nine hours on bare skin.

Butterscotch

Glaminatrix Butterscotch Matte Eyeshadow ($7.30 for 0.07 oz.) is a darker, warm yellow with a matte finish. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, velvety texture that had moderate powderiness in the pan, but it had little in the way of fallout when I applied it to my lid. I’d recommend using a very light hand when picking up product, though. It lasted well for eight hours before fading visibly on me.

Sundress

Glaminatrix Sundress Matte Pressed Pigment ($7.30 for 0.07 oz.) is a deep yellow with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had a denser, more velvety consistency that was moderately powdery in the pan, as it seemed almost airy and so finely-milled, but it applied better on my lid as it was opaque, blended out without sheering out, and had minimal fallout. It wore well for eight hours before fading a bit.

Banana Split

Glaminatrix Banana Split Matte Eyeshadow ($7.30 for 0.07 oz.) is a neon yellow with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage that was easily built up to full coverage with a second layer.

The texture was slightly thinner and drier compared to most of the brand’s mattes, though it was still very powdery in the pan. It had some more visible powderiness when I worked with it on my lid, though it was significantly less powdery in practice than it was in the pan itself. This shade stayed on well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Mellow

Glaminatrix Mellow Matte Eyeshadow ($7.30 for 0.07 oz.) is a pale yellow with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that was buildable over an eyeshadow primer. The texture was soft, finely-milled, and slightly drier compared to most of the brand’s mattes, which I found made it more prone to fallout and sheering out on my lid (which wasn’t an issue with most of the brand’s matte eyeshadows, despite being very powdery in the pan). It lasted well for seven and a half hours on me before fading visibly.

Smog

Glaminatrix Smog Matte Eyeshadow ($7.30 for 0.07 oz.) is a light, yellowy chartreuse with a matte finish. It had opaque pigmentation paired with a smooth, velvety consistency that was finely-milled to the point where it was so fine and airy that it had a fair amount of excess product kicked up in the pan. The creamier nature of the formula helped the actual product laydown smoothly on bare skin with slight fallout. It wore well for eight hours before showing signs of fading.
