If you haven’t tried MAKE UP FOR EVER shadows before, you’re in for a real treat. They are always so smooth, pigmented and easy to blend, and the nine shades in the MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Palette Volume 4 ($44 at Sephora) are no exception to this.
All nine shadows in this palette are matte, which actually surprised me when it came to the bolder blue shade as I think it’d probably be nicer with a bit of a satin/shimmer finish to it. Even on that note, this is definitely a one-and-done palette for me. I can easily create eye looks (most especially everyday neutral ones) without having to reach for other palettes or shadows to complete a look, which is something I look for in the perfect palette!
I gave these swatches a couple of swipes over primer.
From left: M-100 Black, M-842 Wine, M-240 Prussian Blue, M-620 Grey Brown, M-806 Antique Pink, M-536 Milk Tea, M-126 Chalk, M-546 Dark Purple Taupe, M-530 Eggshell
These shades are all so beautiful and so pigmented. I feel like the Prussian Blue shade in this palette is totally random, but I also don’t feel like it’s taking up the space of another shade that I desperately need to create complete eye looks, so I’ll let it slide, haha.
Overall, definitely a great quality and gorgeous matte eyeshadow palette that would perfectly complement any of the other MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Palettes, especially the Volume 1 Nudes palette that has all satin/shimmer neutral shades.
Do you have any of the MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Palettes?
