Whipping out your best smoky eye for the holiday season?
I’m not. Dude, smoky totally makes me look tired lately. I’m whipping out my best brown smoky eye…
However, those rocking the traditional smoky eye might want a little extra helping hand and a solid base with a little drama. Bring in the Sleek Makeup Molten Metal my little flying monkeys, yeah, I have flying monkeys around doing my bidding, I roll like that.
Molten Metal isn’t a new product but the shade Steel and Ash is.
What the heck is Molten Metal anyway? It’s a Metallic Eyeshadow Duo in a cream formulation with an intense pigmentation. Yeah, we are talking serious color pay off here. The formula is pretty dreamy and creamy, blends out in a snap, and builds up easily. Granted, Sleek made them to use on their own but they make a fabulous little base for powders, pigments, and other loose media as well so your traditional smoky look will be a snap to apply.
The finish is pretty dramatic with the gunmetal grey shade having a liquid metal finish and just the right amount of sparkle and the silver also has a crisp shimmer. Application can prove a little tricky at times so a little patience is required to build the color up. I find the first blend is a bit patchy but the product remains soft to the touch so you can easily build it up on a second pass. It sets fairly slowly so give it a chance to dry down prior to adding your eyeliner and mascara to the mix. A proper base is definitely required to avoid creasing drama.
On their own you can easily create a full traditional smoky eye in an instant. With powders added into the mix you can get a more dramatic and creative finish. Either way you use the product I think you’ll be quite pleased with the results.
Overall? Joyful product but I’d like to see Sleek do them in some other shades…they already have a gold available but count me in for a brown duo! I’d be on it all crazy like.
