Cream Please

Give Me Glow Cream Please Matte Pressed Shadow ($7.00 for 0.105 oz.) is a soft, warm white with a matte finish. The texture was somewhat powdery but maintained a lot of its full coverage when patted and pressed onto the skin, though there was light fallout if I was not careful. It wore decently for seven and a half hours before fading noticeably.

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.).

Wine O’Clock

Give Me Glow Wine O’Clock Matte Pressed Pigment ($7.00 for 0.105 oz.) is a deep berry with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It was richly pigmented with a soft, slightly drier and lightly powdery consistency, but it was fairly blendable along the edges, though it took a few extra seconds to soften to my satisfaction. It lasted nicely for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.

Brittney

Give Me Glow Brittney Matte Pressed Shadow ($7.00 for 0.105 oz.) is a muted, medium pink with cooler undertones and a matte finish. The texture was a little thicker, more substantial but somewhat powdery, so there was light fallout during application. It had mostly opaque pigmentation that showed signs of fading after eight hours of wear.

Sweet Bitch

Give Me Glow Sweet Bitch Matte Pressed Pigment ($7.00 for 0.105 oz.) is a deeper plum with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It was intensely pigmented to the point where a little went a long way–and a little at a time was really your best bet when working with it. The texture was soft, smooth, and fairly blendable but needed a bit of extra effort to diffuse. It stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours before fading a bit.

Raspberry Cheesecake

Give Me Glow Raspberry Cheesecake Matte Pressed Pigment ($7.00 for 0.105 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a matte finish. The texture was slightly thinner than most of the brand’s matte shades, though it was still fairly blendable and maintained most of its coverage when applied to bare skin. I did find it easier to work with over an eyeshadow primer, though. It lasted well for nine hours before fading and left a stain behind.
