Review : 17 Metalic Eyes 'Wild Nude'

Wednesday, 7 December 2011


After swatching the Chanel illusion d'ombre shadows with Charli, I fell in love....unfortunatley I didnt fall in love with the price tag. But when the word on the street was that these 17 Metallic Eyes shadows were much affordable dupes of the Chanel ones, I had to try them out.

I decided to go for Wild Nude, which is a lovely chamapange/ neutral shade which is perfect for me as I am all for a brown/neutral smokey eye on a day to day basis! There are a selection of other shades which are avaliable and I was tempted to pick up some of the darker shades for a more dramatic smokey eye look for the evenings, but stuck with one that I knew I would get a lot of use out of.


They arent mousse shadows as they are a bit harder than that, but apply really creamy and a little goes a long way. They are perfect to use on their own or paired with other shadows blended on top, depending on how much time you have to do your makeup! If I am in a rush, I just add a swipe of Mac Painterly over my lid and then using my finger I just do a swipe of Wild Nude over the top, some gel liner and mascara and I am ready to go!

Do you have any of these shadows, are there any shades I 'need' to have in my collection as I managed to restrain myself from buying more this time!

Much love
