Breathless

Glaminatrix Breathless Matte Eyeshadow ($7.30 for 0.064 oz.) is a very light taupe with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage that didn’t build up without being used over an eyeshadow primer. The consistency was soft, moderately powdery, and blendable with light fallout during application. It stayed on nicely for seven and a half hours before fading noticeably.

Formula Overview

$7.30/0.064 oz. - $114.06 Per Ounce

The brand doesn't have any real specific claims on their eyeshadows, but the swatches they showcase show their line of eyeshadows to be pigmented. The exception would be shades classified as "Duochrome Toppers," which have a translucent base, though they are packed with shimmer and tend to show up more opaque as a result (both my in experience as well as in their swatches).

The brand has three primary finishes: matte, foiled, and duochrome topper. The matte eyeshadows, which sometimes are classified as matte pressed pigments, are very pigmented, silky-smooth, and blendable, but they are incredibly powdery in the pan. I was surprised that I didn't get much fallout during application, but there was a lot of excess powder kicked up in nearly every matte shade I tested out even when I tried to use a light touch. I found that the ultra finely-milled formula tended to adhere well to bare skin and was more forgiving of dryness than the average matte eyeshadow.

The foiled eyeshadows are high-shine with soft, more loosely-pressed textures (on the whole) that picked up readily with a dry brush, had good adhesion, and had minimal to light fallout, depending on the shade. The shades were higher shimmer seemed more loosely-pressed, while the shades that yielded more of a metallic sheen/pearly sheen were more firmly-pressed (in comparison).

The duochrome toppers are similar to the foiled eyeshadows, but they had higher sparkle/shimmer in them with a translucent base, so the more it was sheered out, the more translucent it appeared. If one picked up and patted it onto the lid, the effect was fairly pigmented. I had a little bit of fallout during application using this finish dry, so I'd recommend using them with a fingertip or a dampened brush for application.

Overall, the formulas are impressive across the board with only a few shades that were under-performing--and they typically were shades that tend to be harder to get perfect (e.g. matte purple). I enjoyed working with the eyeshadows and putting together looks, as they were easy to work with, delivered on pigmentation and blendability, and wore between eight and nine hours on bare skin.

Adore

Glaminatrix Adore Matte Pressed Pigment ($7.30 for 0.064 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark berry with cooler undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation, which was easily built up to full coverage with less than half of a layer more.

The texture was very finely-milled and smooth, but it was somewhat powdery in the pan, though not noticeably powdery in practice as it wasn’t prone fallout. It wore well for eight hours before fading visibly.

Flamingo

Glaminatrix Flamingo Matte Eyeshadow ($7.30 for 0.064 oz.) is a bright, neon pink with cool, blue undertones and a matte finish. It had medium pigmentation with a thin, drier, and very powdery texture that was prone to sheering out, having fallout, and getting everywhere in the pan.

A lot of the brand’s mattes are on the more powdery side, but most of them apply beautifully–this one was just hard to work with, even over primer, as it needed something tackier to adhere to. It lasted decently for eight hours before fading noticeably and left a stain behind.

Petal

Glaminatrix Petal Matte Eyeshadow ($7.30 for 0.064 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark pink with cooler undertones and a matte finish. The texture was finely-milled, velvety, and smooth, but it was very powdery in the pan with excess product visible on the surface even when using a light touch.

Thankfully, it had opaque pigmentation when applied to bare skin and wasn’t prone to fallout during application or blending. This shade showed signs of fading after eight and a half hours and left behind a faint stain.

Fruit Tingle

Glaminatrix Fruit Tingle Matte Pressed Pigment ($7.30 for 0.064 oz.) is a deeper, pinky-lavender with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. The product had opaque color payoff paired with a soft, finely-milled consistency that was prone to powderiness in the pan, but I was pleasantly surprised to find it wasn’t prone to sheering out or having much in the way fallout during application. It wore well and a half for eight hours before fading visibly.

Bittersweet

Glaminatrix Bittersweet Matte Eyeshadow ($7.30 for 0.064 oz.) is a deep taupe-brown with neutral-to-cool undertones and a mostly matte finish. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, finely-milled consistency that felt almost cream-like to the touch but was lighter-weight and airy enough that it was rather powdery in the pan (though not in practice on the lid). It lasted well for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.
