I posted about these in my makeup nod to the metallics trend for 2015 but I decided each shade should get a post of its own.
Inside the box is a pot of eyeshadow, a liquid primer and a mixing tray. The instructions are quite clear but here’s how I used it: I turned the bottle of primer upside down into the tray so that only one drop of liquid comes out. I then scooped a tiny, tiny bit of eyeshadow up on to my angled brush and mix this into the primer. The eyeshadow is now ready to apply.
I then painted the eyeshadow onto my eyelids one at a time so I can keep one eye closed so the eyeshadow can dry. Once the eyeshadow is dry it does not budge at all – there’s no blending here so it’s best to build the colour slowly and steadily. It gives a crinkly foil effect which really reflects the light.
Magnificent Copper comes out looking perfectly copper – a rich, earthy, rose-gold colour. There is a rose gold shade but I can’t try it due to my epic makeup spending ban. I’d love to see how it compares. It has a dazzling shine, unlike anything I’ve seen before. I feel like I need sunglasses to look at it directly! It’s not glittery, it’s not shimmery, it’s shine at its boldest.
It’s all you need for a daytime colour pop on the eyes without it being “too much”. If you think you need something more subtle, try it on the inner corners of your eyes for a special highlight.
Makeup Revolution Awesome Metals Foil Finish Eyeshadow in Magnificent Copper is definitely one of my favourite pieces in my (rather extensive) makeup collection.
