The Dark Matter stack has two neutral-warm light-medium base and transition shades, Blurr and Unseen. Blurr is just a bit too deep for my very pale winter skin to work as an eraser shadow, but it makes a great base shade. Unseen is a warm, burnt-sugar brown. Enigma is a deep, cool red brown with a slight wine tint to it - looks scary in the pan but gorgeous on the skin. The last colour, Dark Matter, is a true ultra matte black with amazing depth and longevity.
The quality of these shadows is great. They're dense, buttery but soft, with minimal fallout. Actually, you have to be careful with Dark Matter, it's really intense. I use it mostly as a liner, but sometimes I do make a full smokey eye with it and it's pure rock'n roll. All in all you can get a huge variety of looks out of these four shadows, just by changing the intensity and layering them innovatively.
Once this stack runs out (will take some time as the pans are so big), I'll definitely buy a new one, I'm that impressed with the shades and the quality. Can't recommend enough.
For anyone who is hesitant to purchase because f the price, I’d say go for it. I’m not super adventurous with my shadows, so having only a limited number isn’t a big deal. The amount of product you get, the quality of the shadows, and the convenience of the packaging are all HUGE pluses.
The packaging is great, each color is on its own disk so when you’ve used all of that color, you can just throw the empty disk away and not have to deal with empty holes like in a normal pallet.
