Luckily, I haven’t experienced any real trouble with the new Metal-X shadows, but I have heard plenty of those who have been unsure about their application, ease, and lasting power. Of course, this means I must enlist the help of an expert, and who better than Victor Cembellin, Senior MAC Artist, to guide us all?

Here are a couple of quick tips on how to play with the Metal X collection!

  • With a unique ‘cream powder’ formula the Metal X colors may stand on their own as a metallic lid color (with little to no creasing) simple apply with a MAC #242 or #252 brush and pat across a bare eye lid.
  • For an unbeatable intensity- use the Metal X colors as a base for any MAC eyes shadow on top make shadows perform like their on steroids J.
  • Add glitter liners thinly on top of any perfectly applied fluid eyeliner to create a modernized 50’s cat eye. VERY CHIC.
  • Using the litter gold and silver Metal X tones, apply sparingly to the high cheek bones for a beautiful ‘plastic’ effect on the skin.
  • Use glitter liners sparingly below the eye to add interest and a unique spin on any eye make up application.
  • Use glitter liner on the tips of any style of MAC lashes to create a diamond-like effect to the lash.

Hope these help some of you! Let me know what tips and tricks you’ve found that would really help others, too.

Overall, I found the texture and consistency of the new cream shadows to be heavenly–smooth and rich in color. These are not crease-resistant, at least not on their own, and perhaps with the right base and setting tools (shadows or maybe even Invisible Set) would be needed to optimize their lasting power. MAC Make Up Artist Paula advised to use these on the lid and brow, but avoid using it in the crease if you fear creasing problems. I’ve been given other tips like using a base underneath the new cream shadows or to ensure you pack on enough powder products (like shadows, for instance) to maximize staying power. The glitter liners were pretty, and a first for me (in person, at least), so I made sure to pick up one. I felt that the liners had good color payoff – they were clearly different colors when swatched. I only purchased Plum Electric & Pure Ore cream shadows and Blitzed glitter liner.
