Darling

Glaminatrix Darling Matte Pressed Pigment ($7.30 for 0.064 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark pink-coral with warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow was richly pigmented with a smooth, almost cream-like texture that was very finely-milled and airy, the latter resulted in a fair amount of powder kicked up in the pan, but it wasn’t prone to fallout during blending or application. It wore well for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.

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.

Fate

Glaminatrix Fate Matte Eyeshadow ($7.30 for 0.064 oz.) is a brighter, medium-dark pink with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque color payoff paired with a finely-milled, velvety-smooth texture that was quite powdery in the pan but applied evenly, blended out well, and wasn’t prone to fallout nor sheering out too readily. It lasted nicely for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.

Musk

Glaminatrix Musk Matte Eyeshadow ($7.30 for 0.064 oz.) is a bright, cotton candy pink with cool, bluish undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation with a smooth, velvety texture that very finely-milled but noticeably powdery in the pan.

Breeze

Glaminatrix Breeze Matte Pressed Pigment ($7.30 for 0.064 oz.) is a brighter, medium pink with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was incredibly smooth and finely-milled, though significantly powdery in the pan where there was always excess in the pan whenever I used it (even with a gentle touch!).

It had opaque pigmentation that applied evenly to bare skin and wasn’t prone to fallout, despite the powderiness. It wore well for eight hours before fading visibly.

Cherry Cocoa

Glaminatrix Cherry Cocoa Matte Eyeshadow ($7.30 for 0.064 oz.) is a soft, dusty coral with warmer undertones and a matte finish. It had rich pigmentation with a smooth, almost velvety texture that was finely-milled but lighter weight, which resulted in a lot of powder kicked up in the pan.

Thankfully, the powderiness didn’t result in fallout during application and kept the eyeshadow blendable without being prone to sheering out. This shade stayed on well for eight hours before fading a bit.
