17 Wild Metallics Cream Eyeshadow in Wild Nude - Review

Hey guys! Just a quick review on a new product I've been trying out recently that's been requested :-) 

I'm actually in the middle about this product. It can be purchased from Boots for £3.99, which I think is reasonable for what the product is. The colour is really beautiful though. I haven't tried any of the other shades out, but they come in silver, purple, blue, green, bronze, and obviously the nude shade I have. I really do love the colour of this particular one though. It's the right balance between a light/nude brown and a greyish colour, and looks very flattering with my blue eyes and pale complexion. You can blend the product well, for a sheer look, or pack more product on for a more "intense" look. It has a very subtle shimmer, which surprisingly I really like, and I find it brightens my eyes instantly.

I don't know if you can tell by the photo's above, but they texture of the product is very "mousse-like", which makes the product easy to blend and gives off a very "smooth" finish.

Swatch of what the product looks like when "packed" on, can be easily blended to create a subtle look too.
I love wearing this cream eye-shadow with a brown pencil eye-liner smudged into my top and bottom lashes. It gives a very messy/grungy, "effortless" make-up look, which I find great for school or if I'm going somewhere and I need to get ready in a rush. It also reminds me of the Olsen twin's make-up, which I'm a big fan of! I also like blending it into my crease with a fluffy blending brush, I usually use one by No.7,  which creates a subtle contour to my eyes, and brightens them. Although, I do find that when applied all over the lid, the product does crease, a lot. Which I guess I don't mind too much, but if you're not a fan, then I definitely do not recommend this product. I've tried setting it with eye-shadow and priming my lids with my favourite primer (urban decay's primer potion) but it still creases very badly. I wouldn't recommend wearing this if you know you're planning on having it on for a long period of time!

All in all, I guess I do like this product and I'm glad I bought it as I find it's quick and easy to use, and I'm glad it's part of my collection :-)

I hope you found this helpful! And if you have any requests leave them below in a comment :-)
