Sleek Makeup Molten Metal Eyeshadow Duo.

Hello! I hope you're doing well today.Here,I have some pictures and swatches of Sleek Makeup's answer to the  'wonder base' phase - Molten Metal Metallic Eyeshadow Duo! 

I bought the shades "Steel & Ash" to try out,as I'm more attracted to the silver family than the gold.But Sleek has made two versions of this product,the other sporting two gold-based colours "Pewter & Gold Leaf"

Personally,I adore the names of the shades,they're elegant sounding and accurately describe the individual products.

The packaging is sweet-a mere 5cm-squared plastic,black box.It's size makes it great for travel and very economical! Collectors of makeup will find it a good space-saving product.
The cursive 'Sleek' font is gorgeous and reflective,and the white product description on the front and back of the clip-shut,hinged box is easy on eyes.It comes with a tiny mirror inside the lid.

It comes with a grand total of 5.4g of product,which will last you an age.

The colours themselves are beautiful to apply.They glide like a dream and are fabulously opaque.My favourite of the two is Steel,a true smelted silver.Ash is slightly more on the grey side - a darker,smokey kind of shade.

So all good things aside,the company claim that these cream shadows are 'creaseless'.Unfortunately,this is really not the case.I wore these for around 4 hours and by 1 1/2 hours (Quite a short time,even for my oily lids),the colours had creased no-end.It was a shame as they looked ever so pretty upon first application! 

My thoughts would be to use this as a liner on the lid and possibly just underneath it.

I am disappointed that they creased so easily,but there are other ways of using this product.For £7.00,I expected the claim to follow through,however.

Will it be worth your well-earned pounds?
