Make Up For Ever ME554 Gunmetal is a moderately warm-toned, light-medium taupe with a metallic finish. It is a permanent eyeshadow that retails for $17.00 and contains 0.08 oz.
Make Up For Ever ME554 Gunmetal Artist Color Shadow ($17.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a medium, taupe-brown with subtle, warm undertones and a cooler, silvery metallic sheen. It had rich color coverage in a single layer, which applied evenly and smoothly to my lid. The texture was moderately dense, creamy enough to blend out nicely on the lid but did not feel thick or heavy on the lid. It wore well for 10 and a half hours on me before fading a bit. The color was very similar to the previous version, though I'd say the finish wasn't quite as shiny (see side-by-side comparison).
