I really wanted to do a tutorial with my new Wild Metallic shadows from 17 and it ended up kind of “costumey”. In pictures it looks pretty wearable but it was a bit on the garish side for my liking so I would be more likely to whip this out for an upcoming Halloween party than a night out.. you might feel differently.. each to their own. Either way the shadows were pretty good. A little difficult to work with as they don’t seem to set so they’re not easy to layer and as the evening progressed you might smudge them. They do give a lot of bang for your buck though. I am looking forward to trying some different shades from the range as just between the two I picked up the formula is very different. The Wild Silver is more of a metallic block silver where are the Wild Midnight Blue is a dull, sheer dark blue with lots of glitter. Both look totally different which is a nice contrast but I expected the range to be the same shade to shade. The silver was definitely easier to blend so I’m hoping the neutrals I want to go back for are more like that. Although they do crease without a primer and are prone to sliding around on your eye if you are a glitter-phobe like me these are a great way to achieve that sparkle without the dreaded fall out of a powder shadow.

    I like the look of the Wild Midnight Blue but those types of formula I tend to stay away from as it seems too much of a hassle to work with and I'd probably be paranoid all night if I was to wear it out and about. I love the look you created though.

    You look so flawless! Those 17 wild eyes shades are really gorgeous too.
