Glaminatrix Posy, Minty Fresh, Midnight, Coast, Bluebell Matte Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches

Posy

Glaminatrix Posy Matte Eyeshadow ($7.30 for 0.07 oz.) is a medium-dark aqua with subtle, warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. The consistency was moderately powdery in the pan, but it had only light fallout during application and applied with nearly opaque coverage in a single layer. It wore well for eight hours before fading a bit.

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.

Minty Fresh

Glaminatrix Minty Fresh Matte Eyeshadow ($7.30 for 0.07 oz.) is a bright, bluish-aqua with cool undertones and a matte finish. It was incredibly powdery in the pan, but the formula seemed to have a lot of creaminess and good density, which enabled the eyeshadow to apply with higher coverage and blend out without sheering out. This shade stayed on well for eight hours before fading visibly.

Midnight

Glaminatrix Midnight Matte Eyeshadow ($7.30 for 0.07 oz.)is a muted, medium blue with cooler undertones and a semi-matte finish. There was barely-there shimmer in it that was visible in the close-up swatch photo but not really present on the eye in person.

It had mostly opaque, buildable pigmentation that adhered evenly to bare skin and blended out well without sheering out too readily. The texture was moderately powdery, so there was light fallout during application and a fair amount of powder kicked up in the pan. It lasted well for eight hours before fading noticeably on me.

Coast

Glaminatrix Coast Matte Pressed Pigment ($7.30 for 0.07 oz.) is a bright, cyan blue with strong, cool undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage that was easily built up to full coverage with less than a second layer. The consistency was soft, smooth, and velvety but quite powdery in the pan. I was surprised it had little fallout when I actually worked with it on my eye, though. It wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Bluebell

Glaminatrix Bluebell Matte Eyeshadow ($7.30 for 0.07 oz.) is a bright, cornflower blue with strong, cool undertones and a matte finish. While there was a lot of excess product kicked up in the pan, the actual eyeshadow had a creamier feel that melded well with skin and had only light fallout–nowhere near expectations given how powdery it was in the pan. It had opaque pigmentation that stayed on well for eight hours before fading visibly.
