Dramatic

Give Me Glow Dramatic Matte Pressed Shadow ($7.00 for 0.105 oz.) is a medium copper with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque color coverage paired with a soft, smooth consistency that wasn’t too firmly nor too softly-pressed into the pan–no fallout but still blendable. It lasted well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Formula Overview

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.).

Savage

Give Me Glow Savage Matte Pressed Shadow ($7.00 for 0.105 oz.) is a medium olive green with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color payoff that adhered well to bare skin with a smooth, even lay down of product that diffused well along the edges. The texture was soft, smooth, and more firmly-pressed into the pan than most mattes by the brand. It wore well for eight hours before showing signs of fading.

Seaside

Give Me Glow Seaside Matte Pressed Shadow ($7.00 for 0.105 oz.) is a dusty, medium blue-leaning teal with soft, cool undertones and a matte finish. The texture was soft, smooth, and substantial without being powdery or too firmly-pressed into the pan. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer, which applied evenly to bare skin and blended out without difficulty. It stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.

Gifts Galore

Give Me Glow Gifts Galore Foiled Pressed Shadow ($7.00 for 0.105 oz.) has a brighter, reddish-brown base with duochromatic shimmer that shifted from green to teal paired with a metallic finish. The consistency was smooth, emollient, and almost cream-like, but it wasn’t too thick or too firmly-pressed into the pan. It had rich color payoff that adhered evenly to bare skin and lasted well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

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.).
