Purple can be a hard color to nail, and even lighter variations of purple can be tough. For those who love the idea of purple but haven’t found a good way to wear it yet, consider a lighter shade, which can be easier to work with.
377 is a deep royal purple with a matte finish, though I detected a slight micro-shimmer. This shade was a little patchy.
379 is a medium-dark blue-purple with a matte finish. This shade was powdery and sheer in places.
325 is a rich eggplant purple with a matte finish.
375 is an eggplant purple with a matte finish–it is just a lighter version of #325. It has a slightly stronger red undertone.
320 is a medium grape purple with a matte finish. It was a little sheer in places.
386 is a lightened medium purple with red undertones and a matte finish. It was patchy and easily sheered out.
334 is a pink lavender with a matte finish. I also had some evenness issues with this shade.
346 is a light lilac with a matte finish.
While I’ve had fairly good luck with Inglot’s matte eyeshadows in the past, I found a lot of these troublesome. Several shades did not apply evenly, so the end result was a patchy swatch that was sheer in places and opaque elsewhere. I was rather disappointed in how these swatched, so I played around with them in application, and they were better but not as stellar as the rest of the matte range. The only shades out of these that I recommended are #325 and #375.
