If you have been following my blog for a while, you would know I love the L'Oreal Colour Riche eyeshadows. I love the quads and the monos as well. Well, L'Oreal recently came out with 5 new matte mono eyeshadows and oh my goodness, they are amazing. I think these are some of the best eyeshadows found at the drugstore. And all of these colors come together for such a beautiful warm look. They are also perfect for the fall time. I went a little picture happy, so I hope you don't mind all of the photos! 

Here are the shades: (going from left to right in the swatches below)
  • Matte Chill which is a yellow tone cream shade 
  • Mix And Matte which is a beautiful beige 
  • Matte It Up is a warm light brown (this shade is one of my favorites. It is a great transition shade)
  • Acro-Matte is a stunning burnt orange (I feel like this one will be everyones favorite. Literally the perfect shade for fall)
  • Matte-Ison Avenue which is a beautiful plum/deep brown shade 

The texture of these eyeshadows are so different compared to anything in the store store. They have a gel like texture that turns into powder. The pigmentation is seriously amazing. And they are also very soft and not chalky. Since they do have a gel texture, there is no fall out which is a huge plus. 

If you are looking for some new affordable eyeshadows you should totally check these out. And if you are not into matte shadows, the rest of the line is also incredible. 

Each of these eyeshadows are $5.99 each and you can usually get them on BOGO at to get them cheaper. Also, Ulta currently has a deal where when you spend $20 on L'Oreal products, you will receive a FREE makeup bag.

Pixi Beauty ItsEyeTime Eyeshadow Palette Swatches & Review

PR Sample|Affiliated Links

I am so incredibly excited to be sharing this Pixi Beauty palette with you all. This is the Get The Look ItsEyeTime eyeshadow palette that was created with ItsJudyTime. When I first saw this palette, I knew it was going to be right up my alley. The colors just scream my name. I was hoping and praying that the shadows would perform well and I was super impressed once I started swatching and using this palette. 

This palette comes with 12 different shades and are a mix of matte and shimmer. Honestly, this is one of the best palettes I have tested recently. The colors are stunning and they are extremely pigmented. I did have an issue with one of the shades, but I will get to that soon! The mattes are nice and buttery, but the shimmers is where its at. They are so intensely pigmented. I was seriously shocked when I started swatching these and applying them.

Onto the colors in the palette: Snowflake which is a beautiful shimmery champagne color, Bubbly which is a beautiful shimmery gold, Its Mommys Life which is a great warm transition color, this one has a matte finish, Good Morning is a stunning warm brown matte, Brick which is a matte brick red color (seems to be a must have in most palettes now days), Honey Bear which is also a matte and its a yellowish brown, Tu Tu is a matte shade as well and is warm taupe plum shade, Getaway is a very pretty shimmery golden cranberry shade, Ping is a shimmery dark brown, Dark Chocolate is a matte dark brown, Aww Snap is a matte brown with a red undertone and lastly is Night Night which was my least favorite in the palette. It's a black with a hint of sparkles and it just did not perform on the same level as the other shades. So 11/12 shades were amazing and I honestly think its totally worth it.

This is a great everyday palette and has some beautiful warm tones. It is a little bit on the pricey side for being more of a drugstore brand. It does retail for $24.00 and can be found at Target or online. 

Let me know in the comments below what you think of this palette and if its on your wish list!
