Sleek’s Molten Metal Swatches!

Today I am bringing you swatches of Sleek MakeUP’s Molten Metal Cream Duos.

I’ve had the gold duo for a while now & now that Sleek have just released the silver duo, I thought why not show off these sparkling gems for you. 

1
L-R Molten Metal 715, Molten Metal 714.

2
L-R Steel, Ash, Pewter, Gold Leaf.

How pretty are these!  They are shimmering cream eye shadows which you can apply on the eye lid for a gorgeous sparkling look.  These colours are really flattering for all skin tones (especially the gold – looks dazzling on darker skin) and because they are shimmery, they really open your eyes up and make them appear wider.

These creams are so easy to apply – to create the looks below I used the lighter colour on the inner corner of the eye and the darker shade on the outer corner of the eye.  I applied the creams with an eyeshadow brush.

Gold Duo -  I love the shades in this duo and I’ve even started added a bit of Pewter (the lighter shade) to the inner corners of my eye daily for a twist on the neutral brown look.

Silver Duo – This duo is absolutely perfect for a dark, gothic look (perfect for a night out on the town).

Below, I’ve used both palettes, Pewter on the inner corner, Steel all over the lid, Gold Leaf on the outer corner of the eye and Ash to line the eye underneath.

What I think: At only £6.99 I think these are a steal and a must have for any girl’s eye shadow collection.  Adding a touch of this shimmer to any look really emphasizes the eyes.  I’d love to see a darker brown duo, or a purple/blue duo too.
I have unfortunately found that these creams do crease on the eyelid, a few hours after application which is a shame, but I’ve been using my finger to blend it out if this does happen.

What’s your favourite Molten Metal Palette & what’s your favourite shimmer?

  1. Who cares about creasing, these look amazing!!! I'm sure that if you apply a golden or silver eyeshadow on top it's going to emphasise even more the "molten metal" look! xx

  8. The colours look really nice on you, very pretty. I always think that more colours suit girls with blonde hair. (I wish i was blonde) I have dark hair and I only suit dark eye shadows, esp with my skin tone. i would love to be able to wear the silver one, looks so nice x
