So some of you may know that I’m not a huge fan of mattes. There are a few favorites I have, even then I don’t wear them much. I am also not the hugest fan of neutrals. I like my bright sparkly colors. But I have to say, I was completely blown away by these shadows. The loose formula is fantastic. It’s highly pigmented and blends easily, but the pressed shadows? They are truly amazing. They are soft and buttery, they apply wonderfully. They are just amazing. I love them. Maleah has done a wondrous job with her formulas and I hope she releases more shades in the future. I’d love to have some pinks/purples/teals from her. Oh yes. I love, love, love some of these colors and actually went off and ordered them in pressed shadows. >.> Immortals, Imogen and Thirteen are my favorites here. Even though I got a full loose size of Immortals I decided to get it pressed as well. See. I love them. t.t I also ordered another Imogen that I’m going to be giving away with some other favorite indie stuff probably next month. :d Seriously. If you haven’t tried them, you need to. They completely changed how I feel about mattes and neutrals. I can’t wait to do a look with them!
