I love wearing shimmery metallic shades like bronze, gold and silver so I was very excited to begin experimenting with the Metal Mania palette from Coastal Scents. With this palette you get 88 beautiful shimmery shadows, 2 sponge applicators and the case contains a large mirror.
These shadows range from neutrals and earth tones with some purple, green and pink hues thrown in for good measure. All the shadows in this palette have a shimmery metallic finish, so if you want some matte shades then you won’t find them here. I think the colors are well suited for most skin tones. There aren't many bright colors in here such as bright greens, yellows or blues, this palette although shimmer based is still rather subtle and the colors are toned down. Although some of the colors are quite similar you get a very nice range and many options.
You can build up these colors for bold ultra shimmery looks or you can apply less if you would like a subdued soft look. When I want a lot of color on my lids I use a flat shadow brush and pat on the color in layers over a good primer. You can also use these shadows wet. The shadows are highly pigmented and the colors show up very nicely on the skin. My favorites are the bronze shades, and the bronze shades with pink undertones, they are gorgeous for fall. Some of the colors look very pretty when the light catches the glitter creating a very interesting effect.
Since the palette contains 88 shades I cannot swatch them all but here are a few swatches below
Quality & Application
These shadows are very good quality and they are very easy to work with because the color goes on effortlessly and you don't have to work hard to build them up. If you like shimmery shades then this palette is for you.
