Full Metal Black

Natasha Denona Full Metal Black Chroma Crystal Top Coat ($28.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a deep black with a heavy dose of silver sparkle. The texture was creamy, dense, and thicker, but it spread well across my skin for rich, opaque coverage that was still blendable along the edges. I found the formula significantly creamier and easier to work with than past shades in the same formula, though anyone who wanted to use it as a sheerer wash of color on the lid will find it hard to do so as a little went a long way! It dried down within 30 seconds or so but didn’t feel too slippery as it was drying down, so it didn’t pull into my creases or fine lines but I had time to play with the edges. It wore well for nine hours without fading, creasing, and had just a smidgen of fallout by the end of the day.

Formula Overview

$28.00/0.08 oz. - $350.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be a "multipurpose sparkling topcoat" that can be worn on "bare eyelids, as an eye shadow topper, or top of a lipstick for a dazzling shimmer effect." The brand recommended to apply with a fingertip for "intense payoff" and a brush for a "more sheer effect." The product is supposed to "glide on easily and set in seconds" for "all-day, crease-proof wear." The formula needed more slip overall--they just weren't that blendable and had a tendency to go on unevenly or patchy on their own. The pigmentation was mostly opaque to fully opaque when applied with fingertips and sheerer, but buildable, with brushes. It was long-wearing enough to get through most of the day, but I did get faint creasing after eight hours of wear and slight to some fallout over time.

Full Metal Bronze

Natasha Denona Full Metal Bronze Chroma Crystal Top Coat ($28.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark brown with strong, warm undertones and flecks of golden bronze glitter/sparkle. The color payoff was fantastic with opaque coverage in a single layer (to the point where a little went a long way). It had a denser, creamier consistency that was thicker than the average powder eyeshadow but did not feel too heavy nor was it greasy/prone to creasing as it dried down. The thickness seemed to work well for ensuring the sparkly bits stayed on the lid rather than traveling elsewhere. There was a touch of fallout if I blended more vigorously over the shade, as that loosened some of the sparkles, but I didn’t have issues just lightly diffusing and moving around the edges as it was drying down. It set within 30 seconds–enough time to play but not enough time for it to sink into fine lines–and stayed on well for nine hours with just a touch of fallout at the end of wear.

I may have dupes galore, but after seeing how rich and opaque this Full Metal Black is, I’m going to have to see about using mine with that bottle of Inglot mixing medium to waterproof my own sparkly black eyeshadows to use as eyeliners! I’m inspired!
