Give Me Glow Matte Pressed Shadows Reviews & Swatches (Part 2 of 4)

High by the Beach

Give Me Glow High by the Beach Matte Pressed Shadow ($7.00 for 0.105 oz.) is a deep, navy blue with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable color coverage that applied fairly evenly and blended out with some effort but was workable. The consistency was soft, lightly powdery with a touch of fallout during application. It wore well for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.

Starboy

Give Me Glow Starboy Matte Pressed Shadow ($7.00 for 0.105 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark blue with cooler 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 thinner than other mattes in the range, but it wasn’t powdery, which made it easier to apply and blend out on my lid as I was less concerned about fallout. This shade stayed on well for eight and a half hours and left a faint stain behind.

Grapeness

Give Me Glow Grapeness Matte Pressed Shadow ($7.00 for 0.105 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark bluish-purple with strong, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had more semi-opaque pigmentation that could be built up, but it had to be applied over an eyeshadow primer to go on evenly.

The texture was slightly drier and more powdery with a tendency to sheer out and yield some fallout during application (even when I was careful). It blended out decently but I’d recommend using another shade (like a lighter lavender) to soften the edge instead. It wore well for eight and a half hours before fading and did leave a bit of a stain behind.

The texture was soft, lightly powdery but not prone to sheering out or having fallout, and remained blendable on my skin. It stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.

Blackened Plum

Give Me Glow Blackened Plum Matte Pressed Shadow ($7.00 for 0.105 oz.) is a muted, deep purple with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation with a smooth, more substantial consistency that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out without too much work, though it wasn’t the most blendable matte I’ve come across (but this type of color is hard to find at all, so I imagine it is “worth” the effort for some). It lasted well for eight hours before fading noticeably.
