I sure have enjoyed MUFE ME840, Pink Chrome. The formula is easier to apply and has less fallout that either of my Nars dual-intensity eyeshadows. I may just have to pick up another MUFE metallic this spring.

Erin, you’re right! I forgot about my pan of DI Callisto, which is basically only the most beautiful pink-purple-taupe ever! ?

I think there are several really nice formulas for metallic shadows and agree with those mentioned including MUFE, ABH and Colour Pop. I also like the Ellis Faas metallic shadows a lot. In particular I like E308 Antique Silver and E305 Metallic Bordeaux.

My personal favorites are: BH Foil Eyes, MUFE Artist Shadows and KVD Metal Crush eyeshadows. Also love MAC Woodwinked and several other excellent metallic shades by MAC. Oh, and lastly; Nyx Fireball! Which looks like molten red copper applied!

I was thinking long and hard about this, since I love eyeshadows with sheen. I sometimes have a hard time differentiating between shimmer, sheen, metallic and glitter but in any case, all of the companies with shadows I love also have some stinkers. My first reaction was to say “Urban Decay” but then I thought about shadows like MCRA and Maui Wowie. Then I thought “Anastasia” but they, too, have some shadows that are metallic but also have a gritty texture or fallout. Ditto Make Up For Ever. But I think I’d have to choose MUFE simply because there are SO many shades to choose from so if one metallic shadow doesn’t work, there will be a similar shade with the same or a similar texture that will work better for you. Still, having said all that, I have metallic shadows from NARS that are fabulous (the Dual Intensity ones) and from MAC (In Extra Dimension and their Frost and Velux Pearl finishes), as well as Inglot and Too Faced and Kat von D….the list goes on and on.

I had the same dilemma – where is the line between shimmer and metallic? I’m going to go with Tom Ford and Chantecaille in the duos.

The only metallics I own are from Coloured Raine (specifically, the two in the Queen of Hearts palette), and Colourpop. I wouldn’t call either better than the other.
