I've recently started using a black shadow in my crease because I've noticed how flat just using one shadow to work makes my eyes look.
I add a bit of black just on the edge of the crease and it gives my eye a shape which I am more than happy with.
However, I need a matte shadow to do this with. I have been using one shadow (which isn't matte) so much that it has now hit pan and I have a reason (not an excuse!) to buy a matte shadow. I thought that this shadow was matte, it looks matte in the pan but when you swatch it, you.see.glitter.
I have another shadow by Stila which is also black but even in the pan, you can see massive glittery bits in it. That's fine for times when I want to vamp it but not even I can go to work looking like I've channelled my inner Kim Kardashian.
I've tweeted about this and have had suggestions which vary from NYX to Beverley Knight..I'm a bit iffy about these as I want to be able to swatch the shadow first and NYX don't sell openly here and BK..well, I'm not too sure what is going on with that brand.
This is where you guys come in, which black matte shadows do you swear by? What are your experiences with black matte shadows? Are they usually pigmented or should I just settle for a shadow with a little shimmer because a good matte black shadow doesn't exist?
