EOTD: Matte eyes with Meet Matt(e)

Of late, I've been obsessed with matte eyeshadows, and Meet Matt(e) palette from TheBalm gets a lot of love. The shadows are very pigmented for matte shades, and a lighter hand gives soft results.
For this look, I used Matt McDonald in the crease and Matt Horowitz on the lid and Matt Ramirez as eyeliner (wet). The mascara used was No 7 Extreme Length mascara.

Meet Matt(e) is a travel-sized cardboard-based palette with nine shadows. The shades are subtle enough for everyday wear and you can get some great matte smoky eyes out of these.
The packaging shows "Matt", who has incredibly shiny teeth. On the back cover, you can see a mini CV - he is 6'2'' and enjoys long walks on the beach :)
The shades are named after "Matts" across different cultures - Matt Batali, Matt Chung, Matt Patel, Matt Smith and so on. My only issue is that there are more dark/crease colours than a range across medium, light and dark shades. There are two base/inner corner colours and just the one shade that's medium enough for an all-over-lid look with a darker crease colour.
There is also a decent mirror and a small brush. You get very little fallout on application, and Matt Batali and Matt Ramirez make awesome wet shadow liners. The colours don't crease anyway, and this EOTD was done without primer.
Incidentally, they have a n*de version of this palette. Wait till my shopping ban is over....
