Sometimes, it's nice to break away from pearly, frosty, shimmery, and glittery eye shadows. Sometimes you just want a softer, more natural look. That's when I reach for the mattes.
My favorite matte eye shadows are the Canyon Classics quad from Pyhsician's Formula. The quad has nice, neutral colors and they are all matte.
Some mattes can be chalky, but these are all silky smooth and blend beautifully. They are very well pigmented, and it doesn't take a lot of product to get good color payoff.
Good, basic colors to have in the stash. ♥
