Revlon Molten Metal Eyeshadow - Heavenly Metal Collection - Swatches

Molten Metal

2010 has been an amazing year for Revlon.  They've exploded on Twitter and gave away lipsticks to their first 500 followers.  Gucci Westman, makeup artist extraordinaire, is on board as Global Artistic Director.  Other than marketing and creative, Revlon has also made strides most importantly in their products.  They have come out with some really interesting collections and colors this past year.  I loved their reinvention to Fire and Ice with a nod at vintage limited edition packaging.  If you missed our review of it, click hereGrow Luscious has stepped over Diorshow as my new favorite big brush mascara.  And as far as nails go, this year they have come out with some really interesting shades in their Top Speed line, as well as some cool glitter top coats and matte colors.

A recent release, Revlon Heavenly Metal Collection explores a dramatic rocker look on Halle Berry with a twist on the classic smoky eye.  The display at my local store carried some new products introduced with this collection.  The one that struck out to me was an eyeshadow duo called Molten Metal.  Molten Metal consists of two baked eyeshadows in Jade and Onyx.  Jade is a soft minty pearl green with serious shimmer.  Onyx, isn't really black, but a blackened green with green shimmer.  Both colors had a great texture, and I was surprised how pigmented they were for drugstore shadows.  With a base, the colors really popped.  Below they were swatched with no base or primer.  This set is limited edition, so if you see it, I would snag this one.  I hope Revlon comes out with more of these!
