The Nude Mattes Eyeshadow Palette:
DIRECTIONS: Use the included brush plus any of your favorite eyeshadow brushes to create your ideal eye design. Be creative! The single semi-matte shade (labeled Pink Sugar) has just a touch of shimmer, perfect for adding dimension and highlighting.
MegaLength Lash-Extending Mascara:
DIRECTIONS: In order to maximize every last lash, stroke successive coats of mascara on the upper and, if desired, lower lashes. For the most dramatic lash look, place the wand as close to the base (roots) of the upper lashes as possible. Hold the wand there, and carefully wiggle it back and forth to deposit extra mascara prior to brushing the wand through your lashes. For maximum impact, proceed with at least two full coats. Don't let the mascara dry between coats!
If you opt to use an eyelash curler, use it BEFORE applying mascara. Squeeze the curler gently with even pressure, hold for a few seconds and then release slowly as you move from the base of the lashes to the tip.

Do you have shade descriptions for each color in the palette?
We certainly do! From lightest to darkest, the descriptions are as follows:
- Cream: pale ivory
- Beige: light, neutral beige
- Pink Sugar: pale pink with soft peachy-gold shimmer
- Café au Lait: light, warm taupe
- Tan: light brown
- Chestnut: russet brown
- Clay: warm medium brown
- Plum Taupe: medium cool brown
- Gunmetal Grey: deep, warm grey
- Chocolate Truffle: cool medium brown
- Coffee: deepest brown
- Onyx: classic black
Can I use these powder shadows wet or dry?
Yes. As with any smooth powder eyeshadow, wet application (by which we mean applying with a damp, not drenched, brush) intensifies the color and can be great for using powder eyeshadows as liner. Within the palette the Coffee and Onyx shades are brilliant for lining wet or dry! Applying these shadows dry gives a softer yet still pigmented look that you can easily layer if more intensity is desired.
What’s the level of shimmer in these shadows? Are they truly matte?
Other than the Pink Sugar shade, every eyeshadow color in this palette has a true matte finish—no hint of shine. But unlike matte shadows from years past, this modern matte formula never looks flat or “dirty”. It can be difficult to find truly matte eyeshadows that also have a smooth, even application and stunning appearance but Paula’s Choice Nude Mattes Eyeshadow Palette provides just that.
How long will these powder eyeshadows wear?
To some extent this always depends on what else you apply around your eyes, especially to the eyelid area. When the eyelid and underbrow area are prepped with a matte-finish foundation and/or concealer or, if you prefer, an eyeshadow primer, these shadows should wear from day to night without fading or creasing.
Can I use these with other types of eyeshadow?
Yes! But do keep in mind that mixing powder eyeshadows with cream or cream-to-powder shadows can shorten their wear time. For best results, mix with other powder eyeshadows or long-wearing shadows such as M.A.C. Paint Pots.

MegaLength Lash-Extending Mascara:
How is this mascara different from Illicit Lash Maximum Impact Mascara?
Illicit Lash Maximum Impact Mascara is designed to lengthen lashes while adding dramatic color, an uplifted curl, and fine separation. It goes on a bit wetter and does not supply as much thickness as MegaLength Lash-Extending Mascara. MegaLength Lash-Extending Mascara is best for those who want a full, fanned sweep of dramatic lashes with equal parts length and thickness (volume).
Is MegaLength Lash-Extending Mascara waterproof?
No; however, like most regular mascaras, it is water-resistant. That means a minor splash or getting caught in a light rain won't cause this mascara to break down. Getting drenched or going swimming will have that effect, so for those occasions, waterproof mascara is preferred.
