Urban Decay Eyeshadow: Two Minutes with Gunmetal
Urban Decay Gunmetal Eyeshadow ($17.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a dark gray base with a deep silver sheen. It’s very much the color of gunmetal. I like that it’s not overly frosty or shimmery–it’s definitely more of a frost finish than anything else, but it’s not over the top. It reminds me of MAC’s Silver Ring Eyeshadow, actually, but not quite as dark. Gunmetal has a soft, smooth texture with rich pigmentation from the start. No need to go back for seconds and thirds–one swipe is really all you need with this shade.
This is an excellent silver-gray for a traditional smoky eye. You could use this all over the lid, then apply a touch of matte black in the crease to darken and smoke. Quick, easy, and totally sultry!

Recommendation: If you’ve been in the market for a silver/gray for smoky eyes, Gunmetal is definitely a worthy contender! The texture is every bit of what you’d expect from Urban Decay without being too frosty and not at all glittery.
