I’ve always admired the amazing makeup looks shared on Instagram. One of the thing’s that’ve particularly take my eye have been the metallic shadows that just pop. You know the type, the ones you could see from space. I’ve tried & tried to recreate this effect with coloured glitter eyeshadows & MAC Fix+ or similar with absolutely no luck. That is, until I came across the Makeup Revolution Awesome Metals Eye Foils.
I love this! I picked it up in the shade Rose Gold & was in love from the first time I used it. Just look at it! The Makeup Revolution Awesome Metals Eye Foils come with a liquid primer & mixing tray, but I haven’t used these. I’m quite clumsy, so didn’t like the idea of the mess I could potentially make! Even without the liquid primer, the eye foil looks highly pigmented & lasts really well. I always use a primer as a base anyway, as my eyelids are quite oily. In these photos, I’ve used the MAC Paint Pot in Soft ochre.
I apply the Makeup Revolution Awesome Metals Eye Foils with my ring finger, placing the foil directly onto my eye lid. You could use a brush, but I would suggest sticking to a synthetic brush, as the Eye Foils have a slightly creamy, wet texture to them. They apply beautifully, so smooth & even. They really are a dream to work with!
My only disappointment with the Makeup Revolution Awesome Metals Eye Foils is that there aren’t enough shades for my liking. The website says there are 5 shades, but only shows 4 of them & I’ve never come across the 5th shade. The only shade other than Rose Gold that I can see myself using regularly would be Pure Platinum. Black Diamond would look amazing for a smokey eye look, but I don’t wear those often enough to make it worth while to purchase. I’d love to see a burn orange or maroon shade for autumn. A lilac or mauve would be stunning & a peach would be beautiful.

I’m pretty sure these were £5 when I bought mine, which is an absolute bargain. They may have been £ online & £4 in store… There was definitely a price difference between getting them online & instore. Anyway, now they’re £4 from makeuprevolution.com, & £3 from superdrug.com! I would highly, highly recommend picking at least one of them up. You can also find them in Superdrug stores.
