Matte Eyeshadow

Wednesday, January 12, 2011

Ever wondered what the benefits of matte eyeshadow are? Well, e.l.f. just came out with a whole line of studio matte eyeshadows!!  The pigment-rich color delivers a vibrant effect while minimizing fine lines (shimmer shadows fall into the small crevices of wrinkles which accentuate and make them appear larger). The creamy soft texture blends in evenly for an all over matte look. This eyeshadow provides long lasting coverage and brilliant payoff for maximum performance. Perfect for wearing alone, contouring or using as a setting powder. Not to mention for $3 you get a Brush that’s included!  To use, just apply all over the eyelid with an eyeshadow applicator or brush. You can wear alone or blend in with other shades for desired makeup effect.  Have you tried matte eyeshadow?

I think this sounds like a great product--I'm going to try it out. If it's as good as the other e.l.f eyeshadows, I'll love it!

I've always wanted to try matte to see the difference between shimmer and matte. My friend bought some matte eyeshadow and loved it! I'm also a HUGE ELF fan so I bet I'll love it too :)

I've always wanted to try a matte color, but was afraid it would look too bland. I'm super excited to try these!

I really want to try these eye shadows! All of the color choices are so beautiful. My favorite are baked berry or chestnut. If only they had more choices, that'd be awesome. (:

Okay, so I love e.l.f!!!!!! they have great makeup and great prices see how i have two little girls and me and my husband work and have lots of bill I don't have time or money to spend on high-in makeup when e.l.f can do the same and I can spend less and they are just great.

I never even noticed the changes in the texture of the skin on my 40-year-old eyelids until I tried to wear shimmery/frosted shadows, and saw this lizard-skin texture I had never seen there before. Yikes! The Studio Matte Eyeshadows work very well at helping prevent this texture from being noticeable. And, even though they are talc-based (talc-free matte shadows would be nice, hint, hint), I have actually been able to use them to set the eyeliner on my waterline without my eyes instantly turning red. I have most of the colors in the line, and would love to see some more cool-toned shades added.
