Unfortunately, one of the negatives of having a beauty blog is finding time to write about products before buying more, and getting behind! So, I only allowed myself to purchase two of the new Kat Von D Metal Crush shadows, and wait to get more until I finish posting about the first ones. Initially, I was only going to get one, but Jerry insisted I get two (thank you mucho!).
I couldn’t make up my mind between Raw Power and the newly released Doce, so Amanda at the Shreveport Sephora told me that if I were to only get one of the two, I would probably get more use out of Doce. (This is what I love about establishing a good relationship with people at beauty stores- they learn your habits, likes, dislikes, etc.) She also pointed out that there is a good dupe for the Raw Power in the Too Faced Chocolate Bar- thank YOU mucho, Amanda!
Let’s get down to business. When I swatched Doce on my hand, it occurred to me that the shade Urban (purple) from Urban Decay’s Electric Palette would really set it off. As it turns out, I was right! Since my skin tone is a bit darker from summer, I needed something to really bring out the gorgeous coppery bronze. I used Doce on my eyelids, then Urban on my crease and corners, and blended a bit more Doce into the upper part of the crease. I finished with Gravitron from the Kat Von D Innerstellar palette on my brow bone. Doce blended so well, even with the other shadows, I wanted to keep putting more on just because I have having so much fun!
This shadow wore very well, it didn’t budge from eyelids at all- but I did use Urban Decay’s original eyeshadow primer. The swatch on my hand lasted several hours, but would have lasted longer if I hadn’t been using my hands so much!
