Australis Metallix Eyeshadows - Swatches and Review
I'm a huge fan of cream eyeshadows. They make smokey eyes and everyday application a breeze, however I felt like I was missing some really punchy shades. Something that can elevate my look with ease and be high impact at the same time. I'd heard really great things about the Australis Metallix Eyeshadows (link), which retail for a low $8.95 and when you sign up you you get 25% off your next purchase, so decided to buy directly through Australis. In terms of my shopping experience, I was very happy and received my order only 2 days after placing it.
Now onto the product! I only used these eyeshadows over a primer - Nars Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base (link) and loved them! Very opaque, creamy, easy to blend and no glitter fall out to speak of.
I've also used all the shades, which I was a little dubious about, as my go to aka everyday look is neutral, and even quite surprised myself. This may be down to how easy they are to use and apply. I simply used my finger to apply the Australis Metallix eye shadow to the mobile area of my eyelid and blended out with a transition shade and fluffy brush.
Some of the shades, in particular Plum Diddy seem to have an dual chrome effect. Unfortunately my camera isn't quite picking this up.
