ABOUT FACE MATTE FLUID EYE PAINT // ALL EYES ON HUE DUO REVIEW

The Matte Fluid Eye Paints were inspired by Halsey's love for painting, made with the intention of the user expressing themselves artistically and experimenting with the product. I also love having the ability to mix the shades together to create custom colors. The All Eyes On Hue duo features the shades "Capulets" and "On Pointe", both of which are full sized products. It's a great way to try with more than one shade at a discounted price. 

About Face is a makeup brand founded by Halsey, which is marketed as "multi-dimensional makeup for everyone, for everywhere, for every way" and all products are vegan, clean and cruelty-free. Celebrity makeup brands are so common now, but About Face has always stood out to me for their unique approach to beauty and self-expression. Halsey has also been one of my favorite artists for years, so I was excited to see her create a brand that feels like such a natural extension of her own distinctive artistic style that shines through in every aspect of About Face. There is such an emphasis on empowerment and experimentation, so there are many products and colorful shades that are so unique to About Face that I haven't seen from other brands before. 

The All Eyes On Hue duo is sold exclusively at Ulta for $25, but the two shades are also sold individually for $16 each. There are nearly 30 other shades available, it covers the entire rainbow and then some. This particular set does work best for fair skin tones, but there is something for everyone in their full range which I have always loved about the brand. There are so many different uses for these, all over the lid as eyeshadow, graphic eyeliner, or even all over the face as a liquid blush or contour. As I always do, I prime with the Milani Eyeshadow Primer, which ensures it lasts all day without fading or creasing, but it is still long-wearing even without the primer. It works well when paired with powder eyeshadow on top too. 

It works similarly to a matte powder eyeshadow but there may be a slight learning curve with it at first. I just apply one swipe and usually just use my finger to blend it in. A fluffy synthetic brush also works really well to blend it too. A little bit goes a long way with this product because it is so pigmented. It fully dries in about 30 seconds, so you have to work somewhat quickly with the product before it stays-put for the rest of the day. 

My favorite shade of the duo is "Capulets", which is a soft brown. It is one of the most popular shades in their line, one that I have been wanting to try since it launched. It is the perfect shade for me as a one and done eyeshadow, just apply a few swipes to the lid and blend it out with my finger. It looks so simple and flattering for everyday wear. "Capulets" reminds me of one of my old favorite Colourpop Super Shock Shadows in the shade "Brady", which has been discontinued for years and I have been looking for something that would be comparable ever since. If you are wanting to try a shade of the Matte Fluid Eye Paints and aren't necessarily daring enough to try one of the colorful shades, I definitely recommend "Capulets".
 
"On Pointe" is a ballet slipper pink. I have very fair skin and no matter how many different ways I tried, this shade is just too light to use on it's own. It is white-based, which makes it difficult to use without looking washed out and patchy. However, it works well when mixed with "Capulets" or even mixed in with a liquid blush (Glossier Cloud Paint is my favorite). It also works as a graphic eyeliner, but that isn't really a look that I tend to go for often. 

I love the Matte Fluid Eye Paints for how versatile they are and all of the ways you can experiment with them. I recommend this set if you have been wanting to try these two particular shades, but as I said, they have so many other options available at Ulta and on the About Face website that may suit your personal preferences better. 

I have tried most of the products from About Face range and have truly loved it all. Everything in the eyes, lips, and face categories are so innovative and high quality. Since I started my blog in 2017, my content used to be mainly beauty focused, which is a topic I have always been passionate about. However, over the past couple of years I have shifted the focus in my writing to more music-related topics since I haven't been buying makeup as much since the pandemic started. With that being said, whenever I am looking for new products to try these days, About Face is a brand I always gravitate toward first. Since their launch, I have been so inspired by their aesthetic and brand mission, which I especially hope shines through in the photos I took for these products featured throughout this review!
