Catrice Liquid Metal Eyeshadow : Look into the Ice Review, Swatches and Photos

Hey there everyone,

I am in the mood for some glitz and glam today. I will discuss about an eye shadow which is all shiny and sparkly. I have been searching for a good silver shadow since so long. I have a couple of palettes which have the silver shade, but those are either too grey or too sheer to my preference. I had received this Catrice Liquid Metal Eyeshadow sometime back in my Envy Box. It is a silver shade and I jumped in joy, as I was searching for the right tone of silver shadow. Did I find my silver shade? Read on to know in detail.

Catrice Silver Eyeshadow Review

See it through my Eyes

Silver eyes and gold eyes are my all time favorites. Gold is the safest bet for our warm skin tones, but special care is required when playing with silver. The silver might just wash out or can b easily over done. I have also used it as a liner when I mix it with the Inglot duraline.

Packaging

This is a mono shadow pack. It is housed in a good quality see through window lid and is easy to identify in the stash. The lid is click lock mechanism and ensures safety in storage. The shadow itself has a gradient over the body, which helps in more color pay off I feel. The irregularity of the shadow cake, helps to pick up a rich color in one finger swipe. With other plain faced shadows, one needs to glide the fingers more than once to bring the true color. If you know what I mean.

Texture

When I first felt it with my finger it felt like cream, so buttery soft and smooth. This is a nor a powder nor a cream, it’s a powder with creamy texture.  It almost glided like butter over the lids. Since this is an out and out glitter shadow, applying with finger is the best way to use it. I have tried and used brushes, but it doesn’t spread that well with a brush. The application is quite smooth both with brush, but much better with fingers. With a brush, the glitter chunks go a bit crazy all over.

Shade

This shade has a very interesting name and I totally can relate to the name. when I apply this color, people are bound to look at my eyes. It’s a beautiful silver shade, with pure silver undertones. It is not yellow or blue based which I love. It is pure silver and that’s the beauty. You get more room to play with it. it can be used to create any cool toned eye makeup look. I have used it with a soft pink color to bring a glam look with all the ease and also great for daytime wear. 

Pigmentation & Staying Power

As silver is a very light shade, I was not expecting much from it. when I picked it with a brush it didn’t show up that well on the eyelids, but with use of fingers the color pay off is much much better. It has a little issue of spreading, so I make it a point not to overdo it.
