Master Metallics #12 is a charcoal black with bluish-silver shimmer throughout. It had a lighter color--grayer rather than black--with more medium coverage when applied dry. With a dampened brush or a fingertip, it had opaque color payoff and a smoother, metallic sheen.
The texture was lightly spongy, creamy without being a true cream eyeshadow and had excellent adhesion to bare skin. It applied evenly but was hard to get a truly diffused edge when blended out. It wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably.
FURTHER READING: Formula Overview, which is a detailed review of the range as a whole.
The creamy shadows deliver a range of chromatic effects from natural to intense, with high-impact shine. The luxe formula can be used dry or wet to achieve a light wash or full-coverage color. Apply this shadow with your fingers to achieve a quick, allover, beautiful intensity. For more detailed application, use the E 4 brush (sold separately) to pat and build the shadow. Wet the brush for extra intensity. Use Master Eye Prep & Set™ (sold separately) as a base for superior grip and buildability.
