Sleek Molten Metal Steel & Ash Duo Swatches

Sleek Molten Metal Steel & Ash Duo Swatches

We’ve got a lovely guest post from Hafsah (nice name!) who blogs at Esoteric Sips. I love how she analyses books so well on her blog, I feel like I’m back in English class which is a good thing because English was my favourite subject in school. If you’re a bookworm like I am, definitely check out Hafsah’s blog for good recommendations :)

Sleek MakeUp has just released the second duo in their Molten Metal collection. They are intensely pigmented cream eyeshadows, very much like Illamasqua’s Liquid Metal cream eyeshadows, which can be worn alone as eyeshadows or worn as a base under powder eyeshadows.

The gold duo made an appearance earlier this year, and although I bought it and liked it enough – I cannot explain how beautiful the new silver duo is!

Left: Steel, Right: Ash

The swatches were achieved with just one gentle swipe each. The pigmentation is brilliant. How gorgeous is that Ash colour? Used together with Steel on the lid and Ash in the crease, these two colours would make for an amazing smokey eye for a sultry evening look.

The texture is extremely smooth and creamy, and they both blend really well. I haven’t worn these eyeshadows on my eyes yet, so I can’t really say much about the wear or creasing. But like most cream eyeshadows, they’re pretty likely to crease so I would use them sparingly, especially in the crease area. Personally I would use them as a base to make my other eyeshadows pop, rather than wear them alone.

The Molten Metal duo is available for £6.99 on the Sleek website or in Superdrug in the UK.
