Matte purple versus shimmery purple : battle of the EOTD

The first pic is done with the Original Sleek palette: shimmery purple with a hint of dark black in the outer V.In the last 2 photos, I wear the matte purple from the Sleek bohemian palette blended with a chocolate color into the crease.

In pictures, I prefer the matte look but in reality the whole look was prettier with the soft shimmery purple. Plus, the matte purple tends to fade in a weird pink color at the end of the day... Do you have the same problem with your matte colors, a change in pigmentation ?

Not really inspired today, I worked all week end long and I feel exhausted...

Have a beautiful shinny day , gorgeous ladies

  1. Yup, I've noticed that with some of my mattes as well.

    I hope you'll find time to relax today!:D
    ...and everything girly under the sun!

  2. I have a lot of matte but I hardly ever use them. Mattes are hard to blend, hard to get some color pay-off from, and I think they don't really do anything for my eyes. I need my shimmer!!

  3. @ Marie: I am happy to see I am not the only one with the transforming process of my mattes e/s. I relax reading blogs with a coffee : only advantage of working week ends, youé,re free as the bird on Mondays ;-)

    @ Musing : I don't know if shimmer is age appropriate in my case but ...I don't care, I need my shimmer too Haha
