A Few Darling Girl MILF Matte Shadow Swatches

Nothing to disclose, I purchased the items shown.  Pools of Passion was a gift with purchase (free sample).  Link is not an affiliate link.

I ordered a few shades from Darling Girl's MILF - Matte I'd Like to Find - collection.   I know a lot of people who believe "matte" is an evil word, but I've always liked mattes.    These shadows were swatched on bare skin, applied with a dampened wet/dry brush.  Photos taken inside, no flash.

Bite Me is a pale putty.  Great for a highlight shade or if you are very fair a subtle lid wash.

This may just be the shade I've been looking for for quite some time now.....I wore it today as a lid shade and am quite taken with it.  I need to pair it with a few other crease colors before I make a final decision, but it's definitely the contender to beat.   This went on a bit darker since I applied it with a damp brush, but quickly dried to the shade you see here.

Kilt-y Pleasures is a mid-tone milk chocolate brown.

Tempting Tryst is a mid-tone grey brown, great crease color.

Pools of Passion is a bright cobalt blue.   I'm not a blue shadow person myself, but this is a gorgeous color and I know a lot of ladies who will love this shade.

I took a picture and the sun burst through the clouds, kinda washing out the colors, but I'm including it anyway.

    1. Bite Me is a great color, it does have that greyish/lavender hint to it. I've been wearing it almost daily since it arrived!

    1. I agree, they're all great shades. Nicely pigmented, blend-able. These mattes are definitely must haves.
