Mattify Shimmery Eyeshadows with Naked Cosmetics Matte Shadow Base

This product was one of the cooler things I got at IMATS LA, but it wasn’t until IMATS Vancouver that I realized how neat it actually was! This is an eyeshadow base that will actually matte out shimmer, specifically in pigments. I have never seen anything quite like this before, as the majority of shadow bases either work to just enhance the shadow or to add shimmer, not take it away.



When I first got this, I was using it like I normally use shadow bases- Applying it on a naked eyelid, then putting the shadow on top. I noticed that this really didn’t matte the colors as much as I hoped.. it really barely took away shimmer! When I went to IMATS Vancouver, I asked if I was using it wrong, and was told that the more product you use, the better, and it works best if it’s actually mixed with the pigment.


This makes a MUCH more dramatic difference with shimmer! The colors instantly become much more matte- not entirely, but more of a satin.

Something to keep in mind- quite a few collections from Naked Cosmetics have Calcium Crystals in them, which are the super sparkly glitter particles you can see in the purple shade I used to demo. These cannot be matted out, so when mixed with this base the color isn’t as matte as it is with shades that don’t have those particles, like the orange above.

This base is available for $14.99 from Naked Cosmetics.

    Wow, so this makes waterproof eye makeup too – that’s awesome! I found the this while I was trying to find the reviews of eye shadows from a company called Mattify Cosmetics, but this is a different company than that. I bought an eye shadow from Mattify and don’t really want anything to make it less sparkly (i happen to love sparkles!) but it’s awesome that this can kind of seal the eye makeup so it doesn’t smudge. I’m going to give it a try with Mattify’s mineral eye makeup. Sounds like it won’t make it much less sparkly as long as I don’t use a lot.

    I’m a freshman in college and I was planning on majoring in Computer Anatomist, but unfortunately it doesn’t really seem too interesting to me, especially all of the computer programming. I’m just considering changing my major to Pc Science other than I have a tendency really know what kind of profession a degree in Computer Science will get me personally. So what are the differences between the two? Please help me out, We don’t really have too much time to ask the advisers at my university, so any help would be appreciated..
