Rosewood

Glaminatrix Rosewood Matte Eyeshadow ($7.30 for 0.064 oz.) is a deep red with strong, warm brown undertones and a matte finish. It was intensely pigmented where a little went a long way, so when combined with the more powdery texture, it was imperative to use a very light hand when picking up the product.

The texture was finely-milled and smooth, which kept fallout to a minimal during application despite the powdery texture. It wore well for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.

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.

Desire

Glaminatrix Desire Matte Pressed Pigment ($7.30 for 0.064 oz.) is a brighter, plummy red with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. The texture was smooth, finely-milled, and almost cream-like with the way it applied and sat on bare skin, though it was very prone to kicking up excess powder in the pan. It had opaque color coverage that stayed on well for eight hours before fading a bit.

Bauxite

Glaminatrix Bauxite Matte Pressed Pigment ($7.30 for 0.064 oz.) is a deep red with subtle, cooler undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque pigmentation paired with a soft, slightly thinner and drier texture that was moderately powdery–it wasn’t as smooth or as finely-milled compared to most of the brand’s matte shades.

I didn’t have any issues applying or blending out the color, though. It lasted nicely for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably and did leave a stain behind.

Watermelon

Glaminatrix Watermelon Matte Pressed Pigment ($7.30 for 0.064 oz.) is a deep, coral-red with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. The product yielded full pigmentation in a single layer, which applied evenly and blended out well without sheering out too readily.

The texture was soft, finely-milled, and smooth to the touch but moderately powdery in the pan. It wore well for eight and a half hours before fading visibly and left behind a stain.
