You guys know that I love my brown and nude eyeshadows, it creates a perfect and subtle smokey eye that’s great for an everyday look. But lately I’ve been itching for some color, so when I saw the Kat Von D Metal Crush Eyeshadows I was SO excited! There’s so many vibrant colors in this collection, that I still can’t decide which ones are my favorites. This collection is definitely for the bold and daring, but if you want to give yourself a unique look, definitely try these shadows out.
The first thing I noticed about these shadows is that they’re all metallic and shimmery, even the highlight color Thunderstuck. The textures of these Metal Crush Eyeshadows are extremely buttery, but there’s not much fallout which is amazing!! It’s super pigmented and glides on smoothly; since it’s so jam-packed with colors and glitters, a little bit goes a long way. After testing some of the colors out on my eyes, I also noticed that it blends easily with other shadows, and it doesn’t crease on my eyelids. It stays put throughout the day (or night!) and I didn’t need to touch-up too much.
The packaging is great; the outer box reminds me of the band ACDC with the lightning bolt! The compact in which the eyeshadows are in is super sturdy. It won’t open up if you happen to put these in your purse or your traveling bag, you definitely hear a “click” when you close the compact so you feel safe knowing it’s sealed tight.
The thing I don’t like about individual shadows is that it can get lost in the mix, especially if you have a lot of them! I’m all about eyeshadow palettes, since I travel often, so I secretly wish this was organized in one compact palette for me. Besides that, I think these are pretty awesome, especially if you’re into color. PS! I know Kat Von D makes a palette with similar colors if that’s what you’re more into.
Have you guys tried out the new shadows yet? If so which ones are your favorites? Let me know in the comment section below!
