Are all BE eyeshadows so shimmery?
I've purchased 2 BE eyeshadows and they're both so shimmery. Are they all that way? I'd prefer some that are matte and less Las Vegas-esque for work. This set appears to be toned down. Are they? Thanks.
There are 3 types of eye shadows that Bare Escentuals have.
Mattes are mostly opaque eye shadow, Cream color with a rich velvet finish.
Sheen (another name is glimpse) are satiny soft, sheer with a touch of glow. Wear dry for a whisper effect or wet for a more opaque sheen.
Shimmer (another name is glimmer) are a high intensity shimmer. Can be soften and more translucent when worn dry, but when you wet your brush and pat into the shade, you will be creating an opaque wash of high sheen which is called foiling when applied to your lid. Best to pat the shadow on. HTH.
