MAC Metal-X Cream Shadow in Venetian Tarnish
_ What they say:
A powdery cream that almost instantly transforms into a blendable, buildable liquid metal finish. A vibrant mélange of pigments, this highlighter quickly brings extreme brilliance, shine and multi-dimensional impact to eyes, cheeks, décolletage. Golden tarnished bronze.
About the Colour and its pigmentation:
This is a pretty metal colour - they call it bronze but I think it's more of a tarnished gold, a little darker than say Old Gold Pigment. The pigmentation is stunning. You could pile this on, but there's no need - one swipe with your finger and you've got full coverage.
What is the texture like?
These are incredibly soft - you have to check your finger after swiping it across as it feels like there's nothing on there. They're incredibly smooth.
How long does it last and is it easy to apply?
They don't last long on their own for me, as I do have oily lids. Even with a primer, if I don't pack powder on top of this cream it creases in no time. I find these best to apply with a finger as I get better coverage than a brush.
How does the packaging look and how good is its quality?
The packaging is adequate – nothing too exciting, but they stay shut well. They could be a little slimmer to make them more portable.
Is it worth the money?
I think this is going to last forever as you need so little - that means it should work out good value for money.
When to use
I like to use this for nights out with lots of black liner and big lashes. Stunning!
