The Peacocky Collection finally hit stores yesterday and I brought home with me a few of the new Mega Metal Shadows.
The Mega Metal Shadows ($19.50) come in 15 beautiful colors that range from coppers, beiges to greens, blues, purples and browns. Compared to the previously released Metal X and Brushed Metal X shadows, these feel more like powder eyeshadows but go on equally buttery with a nice, blendable texture.
Pigmentation seems to vary by color. While they all go on very metallic, the darker ones are more pigmented while the lighter ones require a bit of layering to get a more intense color.
• Sexpectations is a reddish burgundy similar to Cranberry eyeshadow.
• Tweet Me is a light golden orange that shows up identical to Expensive Pink eyeshadow on me.
• Paparazz-she is a bright coppery orange. It reminds me a lot of Goldspice Metal X Eyeshadow and Amberlights eyeshadow.
• Prance is a light beige with a pearly pink sheen.
• Peek-at-you is a light yellow white and the least pigmented out of the bunch. It is similar to Pollen eyeshadow.
• Dalliance is a very light pewter/olive gold. On me, it shows up just like Retrospect eyeshadow with barely any green.
• Ego is a dark forest green that is almost identical to Humid eyeshadow and 6th Sin Metal X Eyeshadow.
• Odalisque is a teal. Shimmermoss and Talent Pool from Starflash collection are close dupes.
• Dandiezette is a cool-toned dark silvery blue similar to Blue Storm Pigment.
• Noir Plum is a bright violet identical to Violet Pigment.
• Mating Call is a frosty lavender. It is similar to Lotusland Eyeshadow from Starflash collection and lighter than Stars ‘N Rockets eyshadow.
• Top Of The Posh is a frosty light pink with just a tinge of gold.
• Spectacle of Yourself is deep bronze warmer than Center Stage. Coco Beach Pigment and Twinks Eyeshadow are both to similar to it.
• Center Stage is a rich chocolate brown just like Mulch Eyeshadow.
• Unflappable is a dark plummy grayish taupe. It is a warmer version of Satin Taupe eyeshadow and similar to Gilded Ash Brushed Metal X Eyeshadow .
The shadows also wear slightly better than the Metal X and Brushed Metal X shadows. They are water-resistant and stay on a good 10 hours without creasing or fading even with no primer underneath.
While all the colors are gorgeous, they are VERY similar to existing and previously released colors so I had a really tough time picking out what I want. I ended up with Unflappable, Noir Plum and Dandizette. Might go back for Dalliance and possibly Mating Call.
