Metallic Eyeshadows

I do love rocking a metallic eye look at the moment, as it’s so striking. These Urban Decay and Estee Edit products have been my go-to choices recently, so I wanted to share them with you as they are perfect for the festive party season.

Urban Decay Liquid Moondust Eyeshadows

The new Urban Decay Liquid Moondust Eyeshadows (£15 each from Debenhams) are quite spectacular and they take sparkle to a whole new inter-galatic level. They have a cream formula that’s packed with extremely finely-milled glitter, giving you a beautiful irridescent metallic finish that changes colour depending on where the light hits it. The brush on these is very fine and precise, allowing you do use them as eyeliner. Or, you can apply liberally all over your lid and blend out with your favourite eyeshadow brush. Once these babies dry, they aren’t going anywhere.

I have two of the eight shades – Solstice (a dark salmon pink with blue and silver glitter) and Recharged (a golden copper with pink glitter). I love these so much and have been enjoying creating different eye looks with them. They look amazing placed in your inner corners.

Estee Edit Metallishadow Creme & Powder Duos

I’ve also been loving the new Estee Edit Metallishadow Creme & Powder Duos (£17 from Selfridges). These cute little pots contain a cream eyeshadow and a complementing metallic loose powder shadow, as well as a handy mirror. They are so versatile as you can wear the cream or powder shadows on their own, or layer them to really pack a colour and shimmer punch. Both the cream and the powder shadows are incredibly pigmented, so a little goes a long way. Try mixing shades from different pots too!

Cream Shadow – Powder Shadow – Powder Layered On Top of Cream


I have three of six of the colour combos – Solar Blast (a brown duo), Cyberella (a deep berry purple duo) and Wild Cosmos (a bright blue duo). I think that they look incredible. When you apply the cream shadow, apply and blend it out in tiny amounts at a time – this stuff can be really messy and if you apply too much and try to blend it out, it will go everywhere and will be extremely hard to come back from.

I created this really wearable look using the Solar Blast shade, with the Urban Decay Liquid Moondust Eyedshadow in Solstice applied in my inner corners. What do you think?
