To be deemed a “cult-classic” product is no small feat. It takes a lot for a product or a brand to gain such a reputation amongst beauty fanatics, but for this Makeup by Mario palette, it’s inarguable that the product is worthy of such renown. Celebrity makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic’s namesake brand, Makeup by Mario, has been loved by fans everywhere since its launch, but one product in particular gained so much traction that it sold out completely and amassed a 13,000 person waitlist in its absence. Now finally back in stock, here’s what you need to know about this cult-favorite Makeup by Mario product.
What’s the Makeup by Mario Hype?
Makeup By Mario Master Mattes Eyeshadow Palette ($48) is full of the celeb MUA’s “ride-or die-mattes” that are “uniquely shaded and inspired by human skin tones from light to deep.” Each shade in this sought-after palette is expertly crafted with a matte formula with a light and creamy feel, buildable texture and minimal fallout. As if the shade range and divine formula weren’t enough, the palette also features shade Matte 12 which contains a carbon black pigment that is 5 times more intense than the traditional black eyeshadow, making it perfect for nailing an intense smokey eye with a thin brush.
If the 13,000 person waitlist still doesn’t have you convinced on this product’s place as a cult-classic, let the celebs do the talking. Makeup by Mario’s Master Mattes palette has been praised by the likes of Lea Michele, Shay Mitchell and Iman, and Mario himself has created looks with this palette on his A-list clients like Kim Kardashian and Megan Fox. The Makeup by Mario Master Mattes Eyeshadow Palette is finally back and available on sephora.com and makeupbymario.com.
