sleek molten metal eyeshadow duo

8 September 2013

This was a real 'on a whim' purchase that I made just because I thought that they looked kinda cool. Usually when I go to Superdrug or Boots I have a list of things that I need and I do my best not to stray from it as I have so much unloved and unused makeup already, it seems silly to just keep buying more and more. This metallic eyeshadow duo is very unlike anything that I already own which is why it made it's way into my basket but now I understand why I have never bought such a thing. Okay so I have mac paint pots but they are a very difference kinda of metallic. For me cream shadows such as the paint pots are great to use as a base but these sleek shadows are thicker and stronger shadesand so don't really fit that purpose. The silver looks good as an inner corner highlight if used sparingly, especially complimenting deep purple and cranberry colours, maybe even rich dark greens but I haven't tried it yet. As for the gold, I have used this as a base with rich copper-y browns and it looks good but not great.

I just don't love them .. The formula is good and doesn't crease much (but i've never worn it alone) and the colour pay off is good, almost too good. Good isn't a great is it ....
