Ice Cold

Glaminatrix Ice Cold Foiled Eyeshadow ($8.04 for 0.064 oz.) is a bright, medium blue with cool undertones and a high-shine, metallic finish. The pigmentation was opaque in a single layer, while the texture was smooth, lightly creamy, and dense without being too firmly-pressed into the pan. It lasted well for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.

Icicle

Glaminatrix Icicle Foiled Eyeshadow ($8.04 for 0.064 oz.) is a light sky blue with cool undertones and warmer, contrasting pale gold shimmer that gave it a metallic finish. The consistency was lightly creamy, more loosely-pressed but not to the point where fallout became a big issue. The eyeshadow had full color payoff that wore well for eight hours before fading visibly.

Mystique

Glaminatrix Mystique Duochrome Eyeshadow ($8.77 for 0.064 oz.) is a rich, royal purple with cooler undertones and a metallic sheen. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, firmer consistency that was denser and stiffer to work with compared to most shades, but it seemed to soften after a couple of uses. I wouldn’t say it was difficult to work with but required a heavier hand, and the brand’s eyeshadows, generally, needed a lighter-than-average hand. It showed signs of fading after eight and a half hours of wear.

Formula Overview

$8.77 -

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.

Cabaret

Glaminatrix Cabaret Foiled Eyeshadow ($8.04 for 0.064 oz.) is a medium purple with neutral-to-cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It wasn’t quite as metallic as most of the foiled finish shades have been. The texture was moderately dense, slightly thicker, but it had better adhesion and seemed to “melt” on my skin after a few minutes. The eyeshadow had opaque color payoff that lasted nicely for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.

Bubblegum

Glaminatrix Bubblegum Duochrome Eyeshadow ($8.77 for 0.064 oz.) is a medium-dark fuchsia pink with cooler, blue undertones and fine, blue-to-violet shifting pearl throughout. It had mostly opaque, buildable pigmentation that adhered evenly to bare skin and blended out well along the edges. The texture was smooth, lightly emollient and moderately dense, so it picked up well with a dry brush but wasn’t prone to fallout. It wore well for eight hours before fading visibly.
