This review of the Tarte Be MATTEnificent Amazonian Colored Clay Matte Eye & Cheek Palette ($36) feels a little late because ALL OF YOU have tried it before me I wasn’t sure I liked the idea of a matte eyeshadow and blush palette to be honest but if anyone at all was going to change my mind about matte it was Tarte.
Tarte introduced me to mattes I actually LOVED! I think the first time I really dug a matte eyeshadow as when I hauled the original Tarte Jewelry Box Palette that was launched around 2009 or so. That palette had a huge array of eyeshadows in a ton of different finishes and yes, there were mattes in there. No one can deny that Tarte’s super silky matte formula is so easy to work with and use. My experience with mattes up to that point had all been bad. Dry, chalky, with a patchy application that looked horrid on my eyes. Seriously, matte just wasn’t for me.
But in comes Tarte and singlehandedly they change my mind. To this day I’m still a little scared of matte anything but I know if Tarte’s behind the wheel I’m safe.
The Tarte Be MATTEnificent Amazonian Colored Clay Matte Eye & Cheek Palette reinforces the fact that Tarte knows how to do mattes.
The NYX Butt Naked Turn the Other Cheek Palette ($25) is a follow up of the Butt Naked Palette that NYX released last year. This all in one eyeshadow palette contains five shades for eyes as well as four blushers, and three highlighters.
Created to enhance your natural beauty this is filled with both natural, nude and matte and shimmer shades.
Take a peek!
Bare Minerals 5 in 1 Advanced Performance Cream Eyeshadow is for ALL the Laura Mercier Eye Basic and Trish McEvoy Eye Essentials fan girls out there.
You know who you are.
Rimmel Scandaleyes Eyeshadow Paints ($4.49) are a new permanent cream eyeshadow launching at drugstores this Spring 2014. I recently ran across them at my local Harmons but was only able to snag two shades as the display was completely cleared out.
I believe they are available in five shades and remind me a good deal of NYX Cream Shadow in consistency, formula, and finish.
Let’s take a look!
Oh it’s on today and official! You NEED the It Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Eyeshadow Palette. What?! I’m recommending an ALL matte eyeshadow palette? Has hell frozen over? Is it raining fire? Is the WORLD COMING TO AN END!?
No, no, no, and no.
I know I don’t like matte shadows sometimes but I’ve been sleeping on my stomach again with my head smashed into a pillow and my fine lines are looking kinda rough and these soft, silky, buttery mattes are a god sent. They apply like a dream, they wear elegantly, the texture…Oh I can gush all day.
Take a look!
