Product Fail: Sleek Molten Metal Eyeshadow Duo

The other day I took my Sleek Molten Metal Metallic Eyeshadow Duo for a test run to test it's performance. Keep reading to see how it held up.

The other day I took my Sleek Molten Metal Metallic Eyeshadow Duo for a test run to test it’s performance, and see how it holds up for a long day of wear. I applied the eyeshadows at around 7:45 am and here is what it looked like…

I used Urban Decay Primer Potion as a base and then applied Pewter on the inner lid, Gold Leaf on the outer lid and urban Decay Darkhorse on the outer v and to blend the crease. I set the eyeshadow with Ben Nye translucent Setting Powder. As with the swatches, both shades appear the same on my lids with no difference in color. Before I could leave the house at 8:30 am I was already experiencing slight creasing…

I put a layer of Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Half Baked over it to further set and went on about my day. At 4:30 pm, my lids looked like this…

As you can see, the shadows started to crease again. Not a good look at all. My beau and I decided to catch dinner and a movie after work, so I was out pretty late. Here is what my lids looked like at 12:30 am…

WTF?!!! I never come home with my lids looking like this. I can go to sleep with my makeup on (not suggested) and it is still in tact in the morning. Thank goodness you could barely see the creasing when my eyes were open. Epic fail! This shadow would work if you only needed it to last for a little while, say for photos… but if you are looking for all day wear, run the other way and don’t look back!

    1. Yeah girl, it was a total fail. I am going to give it another shot… using a thin layer and Ben Nye Final Seal to set. Hope that works since it is so pretty.

  2. Hi Mz. More,

    It’s been a while….

    Thank you for reviewing this. I was considering getting it since I like the combo of such shades – gold/silver/pewter.
    Money saved! 😀

  3. I was about to order this eyeshadow, but now that i read your review i don’t want it any longer.
