I love matte shadows. I'm always surprised at how many palettes there are out there with shimmer and how few without.
Which do you prefer?
it depends i think shimmer ones have more fallout it depends on if u have time to clean up the fallout or ur in a rush and use matte!:) i like both!
I love shimmer for my lids and matte shades for my crease! I have at least 5 different shades of matte brown that I use for my crease and I'm obsessed haha! I wish they had more palettes with matte shades.... :D
I suppose I should say that I do have love for the shimmer as well, but in measured doses, for the same reasons as you mentioned.
I love Matte it looks so much cleaner and neater
I like both!
I'm almost always rocking a shimmery shadow, but always with a matte in the crease and usually as the highlight. Lately I bought a palette with all matte pastel shades and I have been wearing the heck out of them. I love the smooth, effortless blend of matte shadows. I love both the same but I think I usually go for shimmer because like you said, not too many mattes are out there, especially in our favorite palettes:)
i prefer Matte eyeshadows

For photography purposes, I choose mattes. And I still prefer matte shadows over shimmers. You can always add some shimmer over any matte shadow, they are just more versatile in my opinion
i like shimmer on my lids but matte in the crease.
I like shimmer, mostly. i'll do some of those satiny matte kinds for the crease sometimes... but I am not a huge fan of matte colors... maybe it's that my matte colors just aren't very good... because i never seem to get the vibrancy to look like it should or how i want it to... just dull, blah color. but if i use a shimmery shade, BOOM! intense, beautiful, blendable color.

In my ideal palette, there should be a mixture of both. I hate to see shimmer over done ha :-/
I love both but it's so difficult to find palettes with a good mix that I just went crazy with matte eyeshadows from Inglot to try and balance. I really don't understand why everything is so shimmery...
both, it just depends on the day and/or the look i want to create :)
I prefer Matte. I bought a pallet and wore it out!
I love both and try to incorporate them in various eye looks.

I love the look and finish of the shimmer palettes . They look fierce and leave a statement . But on an everyday look or an office look I prefer the matte . It isn't so in your face and for me I feel like it stays on longer . My boyfriend also prefers the matte . He thinks the shimmers are too much unless we're going somewhere at night .
So overall I have to say my matte pallet has brought me more happiness . HaHa .
Matte looks best most of the time but if you find a nice eyeshadow with a shimmer to it, try it (:
Matte because they're so versatile and a loose shimmer pigment can dress up a matte look but it's hard to dress down a shimmery eye but when they're so pretty it's hard to stay clear
Shimmery, and glitter. Its a sick addiction I need help with. Anyone know any good mattes eye shadows? I have yet to find any good ones?

I like to change it up but I do mostly matte shadows. Especially during the week. I save the simmer in sparkle for the weekend;)
for photography I pick matte, i'm not a lover of shimmer, to build colour use matte as a base and then shimmer on top. shimmer reflects the light and matte abserves.
