    The colors of this shadow pallet are really awesome especially if you have brown eyes. I inquired about ordering it all year round but it is only available during the holiday season so I just ordered 4 of them for myself for the year.

        I received this product as a free gift when I made a qualifying purchase. Today I wore the "glam" shade with dark brown eyeliner, and I thought the overall look was fantastic. When I checked my makeup throughout the day, I was pleasantly surprised at the attractive sparkle of this shade. (Not garishly sparkly, just subtly festive.) After reading some of the other reviews on this shade, I think it must come down to experimentation to find the best way of applying this shade for each person. I used Urban Decay's eyeshadow primer potion before brushing on "glam," which helped with application. I also made sure to blend the shade into my crease really well, so that there were no hard edges. I felt pretty wearing it. Thanks, Paula!

          Comments about 4 Mattes & A Glam Eyeshadow Palette - Complete Kit:

          I received this as a free gift with purchase, maybe a year ago? At first, I don't think I was that impressed. The colors looked a bit boring and the plum-glam one looked out of place. But I've had a recent change of heart. For one thing, I actually like the sparkly plum shadow. I layer it over the darker brown shade as an under-eye liner. Looks great on me! The lightest shade, requires a light hand, as it could look a bit chalky if not applied correctly. For a primer, I use a concealer, and I have very oily lids, but it all stays put. I also like the ingenious packaging; nicer quality than the drugstore brands. I'm not a big fan of dusty eye shadows, because they are trickier to apply, but holding a tissue up to my eyes is a small price to play. It's a nice a palette of natural colors that help me look fresh, pretty and not heavily made-up. Works for me!

            Comments about 4 Mattes & A Glam Eyeshadow Palette - Complete Kit:

            I'm actually relieved to read some of the comments here, as I concur! This palette with high quality matte eyeshadows is wonderful except the purplish "glam" color - what to do with it??? Paula, maybe you could ask Wayne Goss what he was thinking and give some tips on the website? (I love Wayne) I would have chosen to put in a sparkly champagne or pink color for the lids. Bonus: the packaging is really cute, compact, and sturdy - good for travel or throwing in your purse.

            Service and delivery comments:

            As always, Paula's Choice has excellent customer service and my products always come sooner than expected.

              Comments about 4 Mattes & A Glam Eyeshadow Palette - Complete Kit:

              The Mattes are nice and good for a clean, everyday look but the "Glam" sugar plum is not just an awful eyeshadow (flaky, easily sheered out to nothing, not pigmented), it's an awful and baffling colour choice. This palette would have been more versatile (ie. Day to Night/Glam) and cohesive if it was replaced with:
              1) matte black, 2) matte dark brown, 3) shimmery brown, or 4) shimmery gold

              Comments about 4 Mattes & A Glam Eyeshadow Palette - Complete Kit:

              This (and the Nude Mattes) are the best eye shadows I've ever used. They fade on me, but I think that's because I have oily lids that no primer seems to conquer. The only complaint I have is that I throw out most of the colours. I find I can't carry off the plum, or any of the browns in either palatte; my eyes just look bruised. I would love to see a palette with Cream, Beige, the dark grey from the Nude Mattes palette, and a mid-taupe like MAC's Copperplate.

              The quality of the eyeshadows is excellent, however I have no idea what to do with the plum color, the palette would get 5 stars if the plum was replaced with the pink sugar color from the nude mattes.

                I love The Nude Mattes palette and sorry it's no longer available (but I still have one). This smaller palette has some of the same shades and works very well for me. I'm 63 yo, fair skin, brown eyes, white hair. It's a great everyday look and these shadows have the same quality as The Nude Mattes palette; they go on very smoothly and are easy to blend. (I do use an eyelid primer to prevent creasing with my hooded, crepey eyelids!) The only color I'm not sure about is the Sugar Plum -- where to use; eyelids, under the brow?

                  Great neutral colors but I just don't get the purple "glam" color. I would've added a darker brown, a grey or black but not purple. It just doesn't go with the selection.
                  The pigment is great! The ease of applying the shadows is great!
                  The size is perfect for travel.

                  A nice thing to possibly add (instead of the glam color is one slot of natural concealer. Would be the perfect eye kit.

                    I LOVE this eyeshadow palette. I have been a makeup guru for 25+ years and have used eyeshadows from nearly all cosmetic lines (department stores and drugstores). The colors in this palette are by far the most flattering ones I have ever used! The shadows blend beautifully and stay put all day. This palette goes on so well that it looks professionally applied. I hope Paula never discontinues this item!!
