starry eyed

Earlier this year I shared with you Sleek Makeup’s new Molten Metal metallic eyeshadow duos in two gorgeous golden shimmers, Golden Leaf and Pewter. You can revisit my post here.
Well now Sleek Makeup have released a new starry silver addition to their range; offering two intense creamy eyeshadows for a dramatic night time look.

Left – Steel, right – Ash.

These two cool, and highly pigmented, cream shadows glide on like a dream and can be used to brighten the eye, with the silver (steel), and to create a smouldering look with the graphite (ash). Their consistency is velvety soft and they are rich in colour, designed to show up on all skin tones. Dramatic and show-stopping, they are ideal for a glam night out, adding dazzle and glitz to your makeup look.

Above I am wearing one colour on each eye…not because I am a crazy person, but just to illustrate how the cream shadows look once applied. I used a soft eye brush to blend the colour all over my lid and then a thin liner brush to edge my bottom lash line. I particularly love the lighter silver shadow in Steel; it is really pretty and adds a lovely metallic sheen to the eye. One thing I would note about the Molten Metal eyeshadow duos is that they do crease over time. Their wearability isn’t great and would probably only hold up for a few hours before they started creasing and looking a bit messy. Perfect for partying but not ideal for everyday wear.

This new Molten Metal eyeshadow duo was launched last week and retails at £6.99.
It is available from Sleek Makeup online and Superdrug stores.
Are you starry eyed for this product?

    Def a must have! I suppose using a primer and setting with a powder would keep the creasing at bay. The color payoff is too awesome to pass over!

    This looks really beautiful. Wearing this on a night out I daresay will cause men to be all the more dazzled by the wearer.

    These colours look so pretty 🙂 I don't normally wear silver colours on my eyes..I'm more for the gold shades but these look like something I'd actually give a go!

    Definitely perfect for a night-time look!

    i think the colours of the duo are absolutely gorgeous, but i can definitely see them looking a bit worse for wear at the end of the night!
