Re: Metal-X Discussion

From MAC LIVE CHAT when I asked about the eye creams.

"They were limited life products which are no longer available online, my apologies. from memory, you could use them over the eyes and cheeks for an added touch of highlight (with a metallic finish)."

Well, I tried to get some info, but that is all she said!

Re: Metal-X Discussion

i want the glitter liners! i have nothing of that sort. just pro glitters.
i wonder if we can use the eye creams as a nice base?

Re: Metal-X Discussion

i just want the eye creams period because it sounds like something that is right up my alley. i rarely have luck with regular liquid liner so i dont think i will be getting these unless i see an absolute to die for color that could be fun as an overlay or something.

Re: Metal-X Discussion

Shiny... I like shiny.

I think they sound like cream color bases that are for use only on face and eyes.

As for glitter liners, doesn't matter to me becaue, imo, the softsparkles are way better than the liquid glitter liners anyday.

Re: Metal-X Discussion

I don't know if this is something i would like to much. I wouldn't have much use for the liners and i just bought all of those paintpots. I am glad this is one of the collections that I can completely pass on. Save money for the others.

Re: Metal-X Discussion

hi gals! i went to one of the MAC counters today and my friend showed me the update book that they received. here are the list of names for the metal-x creams.

Virgin Silver
Pure Ore
Goldspice
Fusion Gold
Pink Ingot
Metalblu
Cyber
6th Sin
Plum Electric

they are going to be released on the 21st of November and are priced at 16.50 each. from my understanding, they are supposedly very opaque when applied but look awesome from the face chart pictures i saw inside of the book.

Re: Metal-X Discussion

i love glitterliners even though i rarely use them...but i'm stoked for some new ones. hopefully they'll come out with a pink one (maybe a repromote of pinkphonic!)

Re: Metal-X Discussion

the only description of the glitter liners that i remember is there being a blue one with purple glitter in it i think. i know that it had to do with blue and purple and thats all i remember.

Thanks for the info! Do you know if there were any deeper or bright colors, or were they more neutral?

Re: Metal-X Discussion

ummm..i honestly couldnt tell you just by remembering what i looked at when i saw the sample face chart pictures, i know that they are metallic in nature, nice shimmer from the descriptions i read. there was no actual pictures of the product, just a promo image and then the descriptions.

Re: Metal-X Discussion

Ooh Metalblu sounds pretty! I'm glad MAC have realised metallics don't just come in warm shades..
post #16 of 205

Re: Metal-X Discussion

post #17 of 205

Re: Metal-X Discussion

About two weeks ago, i made a post about teh glitter liners. I was searching MAC glitter liners on eBay and i found five that i never heard of before. I emailed the seller & she said that they were new & would be in some upcoming collection. Here's a list of the names but please keep in mind i'm not 100% sure!

-Lime Dandy
-Wonder White
-Blitzed
-Pewter Pink
-Embronze

I guess when we finally get the colour info & descriptions, we can see if this is really true!!!

Re: Metal-X Discussion

Im wondering if these have any resemblance to the urban decay metal cream eyeshadows. My guess is yes. We shall see, im always excited for new mac products!

having just purchased some of the urban decay metal creams off of their website, i can honestly say that yes they do look very similar in application as far as to how sheer or bold they appear on skin. having not seen any actual pictures of the new mac creams just the descriptions, it is a safe bet that we should enjoy these. they seem too be a little different from the paintpots.

Re: Metal-X Discussion

ok, so the metal-x cream shadows are:

virgin silver- white w/ silver pearlized pigments
pure ore - metallic green gold
goldspice - metallic coppery gold
fusion gold - light pinky beige w/ gold pearlized pigments
pink ingot - mid-tone blue pink w/ gold pearlized pigments
metalblu - navy blue w/ silver pearlized pigments
cyber - metallic silver w/ silver pearlized pigments
6th sin - forest green w/ silver pearlized pigments
plum electric -deep purple w/ red pearlized pigments

these are a cream colour-rich full coverage shadow. they are made with waxes that are flexible so they adhere to the skin well. a little goes a long way, so they can be sheered down with a little amount, or piled on for maximum coverage and opacity. they are NOT crease-resistant.

and the glitter eye liners (gel based) are:

blitzed - yellow gold w/ multicolour glitter
wonderwhite - silver white w/ multicolour glitter
enbronze - deep brown w/ multicolour glitter
pewterpink - blue purple w/ multicolour glitter
lime dandy - mid-tone yellowgreen w/ multicolour glitter

the working names for these ironically were (in order from top):
glamour gold
spunsilver
oxidate
pinkphonic (new one is purpley blue tho, much darker than pinkphonic)
divine lime

so this gives you an idea of what the colors look like.

I have Pinkphonic, and it is hardly pink. It is actually a skyblue glitter, with subtle pink and silver thrown in as well.

I hope that the Metal-X Creams are opaque and thick enough to be used as bases!! I dislike how Pixel goes on, but want a shimmery metallic base!! D:

Re: Metal-X Discussion

Hearing more about these, im not too excited anymore...
post #25 of 205

Re: Metal-X Discussion

Great, there goes more of my money.

I think I'm going to need cyber, 6th sin, and plum electric cremes and blitzed, wonderwhite, and pewterpink glitter liners.

I imagine lime dandy will be similar enough to divine lime that I won't need it.

Sigh. Come on new job with bigger pay!

Me either. I wouldn't use it on my face and it's not crease resistant, so I'll pass. I am so happy I can save my money. Whoo hooo! Although, I am glad others are excited.

It may not be crease resistant on its own, but I wonder if it would avoid creasing if you put it on top of a light layer of paint, shadestick or paint pot?

I will be picking up a few anyway. I would love to try them and the colours sound pretty hot.

Good point, I bet you could use it over a UDPP. I don't see a highly metallic eye being anything I would want to do, but it could be really dramatic and nice for those more into metallic eye looks.
