One of my favorite colors to wear on the eyes is chartreuse. It’s one of those colors I fell madly in love with from the get-go. I can’t tell you how happy I was when MAC made Lucky Green permanent! I love pairing chartreuse with deeper greens, blues, and teals.
Our look at Inglot’s Matte Eyeshadows ($4.50 to $7.00 each for 0.09 oz.) moves to some of their yellows and greens. (I did show #323 yesterday, but it fits better with this post.) I’m hoping to get through the rest of the matte eyeshadows I have before next weekend, because I know several readers will be heading to IMATS in Pasadena, so I hope this will be helpful.
323 is a bright, medium-dark yellow with a matte finish.
370 is a bright yellow with a little mustard to it and a matte finish.
364 is a soft yellow with a hint of green and a matte finish.
343 is a bright yellowed chartreuse with a matte finish. This felt a little dry and ended up looking powdery and uneven when I swatched it.
333 is a dark hunter green with a matte finish.
331 is a medium-dark grass green with a matte finish.
384 is a medium grass green with a matte finish.
These are really soft mattes; they have a really buttery feel to them, where you can feel the powder loosening as you swatch. They aren’t particularly powdery, though they’ll kick up a little dust if you are heavy handed with your brush. A little product goes a long way, so there’s no reason to jab at the eyeshadow with a brush (something you might have done with past matte eyeshadows). The softness and give allow these to apply smoothly and evenly; there is no patchiness or drag with these. The only downside to these is if you really pack on the color, you might find that it fades (ever-so-marginally) after eight hours; it’s a very minimal drawback, resulting in 0.5 point reduction in longevity.
I had a little trouble with #343, because the texture seemed drier and rather powdery, so it didn’t hold together as well and ended up having a more uneven finish than the other shades.
