Recommendation for a white, matte eyeshadow with good pigment

I purchased a white, matte eyeshadow from NYX that I liked at first, but then realized that I had to apply a ton of it to get any kind of true pigment to it. I want something matte without sparkles or a pearlized effect. Any suggestions? TIA, Gloria

Try Stila's Chinois. It's a creamy matte that makes your eyes look bright. I'm seriously considering buying the In the Garden palette just to get this color - it came in a sampler I received from Skinstore.

I like Creme Brûlée from Wet N Wild...it is only 99 cents! I just purchased mine from Walgreens in April so it should still be available. It is not a true white but an off-white so that might not be what you are looking for. It has amazing pigment!

A second option is Antique White from Revlon but I think that may have been discontinued.

Are you using a primer underneath it? I fnd I get a better, longer lasting color when I use an eye primer.

Try Laura Mercier, in Blanc. Her eye shadows are wonderful!

Bobbi Brown ""white"" eyeshadow. Easy to blend and is highly pigmented.

Jordana makes a white stick that really stays on. It has absolutely no sparkle, I don't recall the name but the matte colors are white, beige, brown, black and green. The others are sparkly. It works best if you warm it on your fingertips and apply. Grear stuff, very cheap!
