Cupcake

Give Me Glow Cupcake Matte Pressed Shadow ($7.00 for 0.105 oz.) is a medium pink with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was smooth, velvety, and substantial, which resulted in full color coverage in a single layer that was blendable but didn’t sheer out too easily. It wore well for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.

Formula Overview

$7.00/0.105 oz. - $66.67 Per Ounce

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.).

Nude Rose

Give Me Glow Nude Rose Matte Pressed Shadow ($7.00 for 0.105 oz.) is a light-medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque color coverage that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out without difficulty. The texture was smooth, silky, and substantial, which helped it have good adhesion that wasn’t prone to sheering out too readily. There were signs of fading present after eight hours of wear.

Anastasia

Give Me Glow Anastasia Foiled Pressed Shadow ($7.00 for 0.105 oz.) is a medium, rosy plum with warmer, coppery undertones and a less warm-toned metallic sheen. It was richly pigmented with a soft, smooth, and creamy consistency that was moderately dense but not overly thick. It stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading visibly on me.

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 foiled eyeshadows are incredibly pigmented with a very smooth, creamy consistency that was dense without being too stiff or too firmly-pressed into the pan. I didn't have any issues picking up product with a dry brush, and they also worked well with fingertips or a dampened brush an even more intense, metallic finish that was ultra-shiny.

I found this finish to be more consistent, too, and it was rare to run into major issues with the shades in this finish. There were a few with a touch of fallout or that might have creased a bit faster over time, but by and large, they hit all the high notes for those who love pigmented, metallic eyeshadows. They wore between eight and nine hours, often creasing more than fading on me.

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.).

Cream Lace

Give Me Glow Cream Lace Foiled Pressed Shadow ($7.00 for 0.105 oz.) is a light, peachy gold with strong, warm undertones and a bright, metallic finish. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer with a smooth, emollient consistency that felt more like a cream-powder hybrid with its smoothness (but no powderiness). It wore well for eight hours before creasing faintly on me.
