It’s not often that you find a completely matte eyeshadow palette with some interesting neutral shades. I absolutely love Tarte’s Tartelette palette but Tarte is pretty hard to get hold of in the UK and Tartelette hasn’t yet arrived at the brand’s only UK stockist QVC just yet. So this new palette from Pur Minerals is one to check out. Here’s the Pur Minerals Soul Mattes Eyeshadow Palette.
Ooh lovely shades and there’s definitely some Tartelette vibes going on there!! It is in sleek packaging (very Kat Von D-esque) with a good size mirror that would be great for travel.
It comes in this cool origami style cardboard packaging.
Although I am not loving the silver and pink combo. It is a bit eighties for me!
Pur Minerals Soul Mattes Eyeshadow Palette Shades
There are 8 very nice warm neutral shades that are all super easy to wear.
- Sweetheart – pale matte pink
- Companion – matte ivory
- Adore – soft taupe mauve
- Better Half – soft mauve
- Alter Ego – soft matte burgundy
- Sidekick – matte brown
- B.F.F. – matte warm light brown
- Confidante – matte nude
The shades are smooth and soft and you don’t get a lot of fall out at all. You can use the shades without too much worry about making a mess, they never go on too strongly and are nicely buildable.
If you are looking for some rosy neutrals, this could be for you. I loved this soft eye look I whipped up using Confidante all over to even things out, then Adore in the crease which I intensified with Alter Ego in the outer V very subtly. I used Companion on the inner corner and browbone, and Sidekick (which you can’t see) along the lower lash line.
Pur Minerals Soul Mattes is a lovely palette and definitely one to consider if you like these rosy, plummy shades but struggle with all the shimmer.
It costs £24 and it’s available at Marks & Spencer.
