Review: Sleek Makeup Molten Metal Metallic Eyeshadow Duo




Product Info from SLEEK MAKEUP:
lluminate your eyes with Molten Metal’s newest shades in Steel and Ash, a cool duo of graphite and silver. The intensely pigmented formula applies like a dream, whilst the vivid colour stays strong and crease free. The creamy texture allows for easy application, making dramatic eyes quick and easy to apply.

TIPS: For starry, smouldering eyes highlight the inner corner of the eye and brow bone using Steel, with Ash to contour and line the eyes.

RETAIL PRICE: $10.50 on www.sleekmakeup.com

WEIGHT: 5.4 gramsLink
SHADES : Available in 2 shades.
> Gold & Pewter
> Steel & Ash

PROS:
* texture is smooth and creamy
* glides like a dream
* really pigmented! shows up easily even without an eye primer

* cute compact with mirror



CONS:
* takes time to dry
* it creases when used alone (no base or primer underneath)

* like most cream eyeshadows you need to "set" this with powder eyeshadow to prevent creasing.


TIPS:
* Prime your lids first with Urban Decay primer potion or Too Faced Shadow Insurance. I've heard a cheaper alternative of the two is Etude House H2O proof eye primer. My friend Raine loves it!
* Apply a thin layer of Sleek cream eyeshadow using your fingertips or a firm synthetic flat brush. You can either apply the darker shade (Steel) near the lashine then apply the lighter shade (Ash) on the crease for a smokey effect OR apply Ash on the entire lid then use Steel to contour the outer-v. For me using the 1st technique is easier since blending a cream shadow on the outer-v is quite tricky especially for newbies.
* Set with a thin layer of translucent powder like Ben Nye Neutral Set using a fluffy eyeshadow brush. I like this powder since it doesn't alter the shade of any makeup. For Philippine residents you can purchase one HERE. If you don't own one, you can also "set" the cream shadow with a powder eyeshadow in the same shade.

I RECOMMEND THIS TO:
People with not so oily lids like mine.

OVERALL:
I rarely use cream eyeshadows on daily basis since I'm always in a hurry when I do my eye makeup in the morning for work... but If I have a LOT of time to spare, using a cream eyeshadow is a great way to intensify my eyeshadow color and THIS shade is very pretty especially for night outs.
