I've been such a huge fan of Armani Eye Tints this year, so when I had the opportunity to try the new matte option, I was thrilled. I received these and a mascara from Influenster, and am loving these just as much as the original formula.
This new range of matte shades is something I find super exciting, though I wish they would make more shades. The current selection is a lovely range of nudes and browns, all of which I think are gorgeous despite many being warmer toned than I would normally pick for myself.
Do note that #12 Gold Ashes is one of the shimmery ones from the original formula, and this one does have larger shimmer particles and could veer on frosty depending on how much you apply. It does make for a gorgeous highlight with a smoky eye though!
Anyway, the reason that I love these so much is because they DON'T MOVE!! They don't crease or budge and they last forever! Sometimes it is a pity to take them off at night. :) Also, I wore my original eye tints for an entire night out in the summer... and it was hot/humid and I was up practically the whole night and my eyeshadow looked great! (Check out my original review here.)
For those of you struggling with applying such a pigmented liquid shadow, I've found that blending the product with the Sephora Pro Cream Eyeshadow #28 brush has been most effective for me. Fingers also do well with this formula, but I often hate getting my fingers messy.
All in all, I'm keeping my eyes out for more shades of the Matte Eye Tint! Have you tried these or the original shimmer formula? How did they fare for you? I'd love to know!
