Give Me Glow No Filter Matte Pressed Shadow ($7.00 for 0.105 oz.) is a brighter, light-medium purple with warmer, pink undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had a soft, lightly powdery consistency that was more substantial, so it wasn’t prone to sheering out and seemed to adhere better, which minimized fallout. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which 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.).

Trust Fund

Give Me Glow Trust Fund Matte Pressed Shadow ($7.00 for 0.105 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark lavender with cooler undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color coverage with a soft, smooth and velvety consistency that was a smidgen powdery in the pan but wasn’t prone to sheering out.

The eyeshadow applied evenly to bare skin and blended out without difficulty. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.

Salem

Give Me Glow Salem Matte Pressed Shadow ($7.00 for 0.105 oz.) is a blackened burgundy with warmer undertones and a matte finish. The texture was somewhat powdery with a tendency to sheer out, so I’d recommend deliberately building it up over an eyeshadow primer by using less product. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Cruel Intentions

Give Me Glow Cruel Intentions Matte Pressed Shadow ($7.00 for 0.105 oz.) is a darker, reddish-plum with warmer undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color payoff that was buildable to full coverage with a second layer. The texture was slightly drier and lightly powdery, so there was some fallout during application if I wasn’t careful, but it blended out without issue. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading a bit.

Christine, I almost hate to ask but as you’ve listed an awesome number of dupes for these shadows, is it likely you might, at some point, list dupes for the Olivia Palermo Regalia palette? I really like most of the shadows in that little beauty but imagine I’ve got dupes for those I like best. Also, the fact that these products aren’t available in Canada (so far as I know) and the cost of shipping and exchange would make them really pricey…well, dupes would be a God-send!

Thank you so very much, Christine! As I suspected, I do have dupes of most of the colours I like best or at least (in the case of Antique Diamante) dupes of some of the dupes…. I really appreciate the information you’ve provided – the information you always provide! I know it’s “only makeup” but the sense of relief I feel when I find I can dupe something that’s out of my reach is surprisingly strong!
