Do you ever see a product and think, “that would look so cool if I did such and such with it”? This is one of the lighter shades of Heavy Metal, and that may have been where I made my mistake. I thought it would look kick ass with some dark purple eyeshadow. Turns out you could barely see my eyeliner. Then I thought maybe, just maybe, it might look okay with light eyeshadow. That was even worse. So I just let this linger in my testing area for months, telling myself I would figure out something really cool to do with it.
Would you believe, I actually did find a pretty good use for this? While it’s not great as an eyeliner, it can pump up your eyeshadow. This is actually perfect for turning any eyeshadow into a glitter shadow. Once the eyeshadow is applied, just take the little liner brush in the cap and dot the glitter over your shadow. Instant evening look. I may not stop buying glitter shadows because of this, but it will probably open me up to more matte shadows than I would have considered now that I can spice them up!
