Rosemary

Give Me Glow Rosemary Matte Pressed Shadow ($7.00 for 0.105 oz.) is a deep, pink-red with strong, blue undertones and a matte finish. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, velvety texture that was slightly thinner compared to other shades but not dry or overly powdery in the pan. It blended out fairly easily, though I did feel like it was easiest to blend over an eyeshadow primer rather than bare skin as any natural oils just made it perform a bit less consistently. This shade wore nicely for eight and a half hours and left a stain behind.

Note: The brand did offer to refund this shade as it arrived cracked, but since it’s not an issue for me, I did not let them refund me!

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.).

Rose Quartz

Give Me Glow Rose Quartz Matte Pressed Shadow ($7.00 for 0.105 oz.) is a medium-dark mauve with warmer undertones and a matte finish. The texture was smooth, velvety, and blendable without being too powdery nor too firmly-pressed into the pan. It had opaque color payoff in a single layer, and I’d go as far as to say a little went a long way so use less than you think you’ll need if you’ve never worked with it before. The color showed signs of fading after eight hours of wear.

Kitty

Give Me Glow Kitty Matte Pressed Shadow ($7.00 for 0.105 oz.) is a light pink with moderate, warm yellow undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color coverage paired with a smooth, velvety consistency that was a smidgen powdery in the pan but had good adhesion to bare skin.

I’ve found that more velvety formulas, especially for lighter shades like this, really go a long way to ensuring the color and coverage translate to the eye without lots of fallout or a tendency to sheer out. The eyeshadow blended out without difficulty and stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.

Olive You

Give Me Glow Olive You Matte Pressed Shadow ($7.00 for 0.105 oz.) is a medium green with strong, warm olive undertones and a matte finish. The texture was soft, moderately powdery, and prone to fallout during application as it didn’t seem to be as velvety or as substantial as most of the brand’s matte shades.

It had medium, buildable pigmentation that was best applied over an eyeshadow primer rather than bare skin. It was fairly blendable and didn’t take too much extra effort to diffuse along the edges. There were signs of fading present after eight hours of wear.

Retro Beige

Give Me Glow Retro Beige Matte Pressed Shadow ($7.00 for 0.105 oz.) is a light-medium taupe-brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff in a single layer, though it needed a second layer for full opacity. The consistency was soft, smooth, and a touch powdery but was quite blendable and easy to work with. It wore well for eight hours before fading visibly.

Patty

Give Me Glow Patty Matte Pressed Shadow ($7.00 for 0.105 oz.) is a bright, medium grass green with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It appeared slightly cooler on the surface, as it was quite a true green, but diffused along the edges, it seemed ever-so-slightly warm-toned.

The texture was soft, a little powdery in the pan but not to the point where it interfered with application, and blendable. It had opaque color coverage that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out well. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

So Rich

Give Me Glow So Rich Matte Pressed Shadow ($7.00 for 0.105 oz.) is a richer, green-leaning aqua paired with a matte finish. It had pigmentation in a single layer, which adhered well to bare skin and blended out nicely along the edges without too much effort. The texture felt smooth, more velvety, and dense with a smidgen of powderiness present in the pan only. It lasted well for eight hours before fading a bit.

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

This will be so helpful to me if I finally cave in and start buying GMG single pan eyeshadows. I have all of their palettes, and I’ve played around with putting together a palette, but I get overwhelmed with choices. Plus, I need to see which singles are in the pre-made palettes.

I just took another look at all the Give Me Glow shadow swatches in your database and the colour selection and finishes are gorgeous. I love how the lighter and mid-tone mattes work beautifully, as the lighter one’s are what I have some trouble with in other formulas. I’m really looking forward to the reviews for all the mattes. I’ve never used indie shadows other than Sydney Grace and Sugarpill. How would these compare? The large pan sizes and the rich pigmentation leads me to think of this as more of an MUA brand.

I never known there was such thing as “too pigmented”. I can see them great for more editorial or artistic looks, but they are way too much for my own personal use.

WELP, guess I’ll be removing Olive You from my cart. Glad some of these are performing well though! Will have to redo my wishlist once the others are reviewed.

We try to approve comments within 24 hours (and reply to them within 72 hours) but can sometimes get behind and appreciate your patience! 🙂 If you have general feedback, product review requests, off-topic questions, or need technical support, please contact us directly. Thank you for your patience!
