Going for gold

The latest shiny-new offering from Sleek Makeup is this rather dinky compact pertaining two magically metallic cream eyeshadows. Molten Metal offers us a highly-pigmented cream that can be utilised in many a way. Eyes, lips and cheekbones can be highlighted and given the Midas touch, glowing with gold and shimmering with silver hues.

From left to right:

Pewter and Gold Leaf

The pigmentation is definitely very rich and the consistency of these cream shadows is luxurious and glides on like a dream. I really enjoyed using them to create the below look. I used Pewter all over the lid, gently applied with a standard eyeshadow brush and then I lined by bottom lashes and the inner corners with Gold Leaf.
The wearability is average to good. It did crease a little after a laborious day but for £6.99, I think these shadows are not only a wonderful colour payoff and finish, but a simple way to add some glitz and glam to your eye makeup. 

Molten Metal (£6.99) is out today as a permanent addition to Sleek’s makeup line. 
You can purchase it from Superdrug or Sleek online.

Shall you be going for gold this season?

    I love it!!! Im a massive gold eye shadow fan πŸ™‚ xo

  8. 5th January 2011 / 8:13 pm

    Oh wow they look beautiful! But very similar to Illamasqua's liquid metals, don't you think? I spy a copy cat – but by the sound of it Sleek has way more staying power than Illamasqua and is a fraction of the price! Bargain! xxx

  9. 5th January 2011 / 8:15 pm

    oooohh! looks lovely! xx

    Ahhh love that! I think I may have to snap this up next time Im in Leeds where my nearest counter is.

    When you applied that on the bottom, did you just put a dot then then smudge it slightly? Whenever I do it it goes EVERYWHERE. Thanks love!

    @missmathful – thank you very much for the award πŸ™‚

    @Dollymix962 – thank you πŸ™‚

    @Sophie – to line the bottom i used an angled brush and just dragged the cream shadow along. it applies really nicely.
