Packaging: 9.25/10

These cream shadows come in small glass jars with screw-on lids. I find the lids on this packaging close more tightly than, say, MAC’s Paint Pots, which helps keep the product from drying out.

Quality: 8.8/10

Starry Night is a navy blue with a ton of beautiful blue and silver sparkles. The finish is not opaque.

The consistency is creamier than Bobbi Brown’s Long-Wear Cream Shadow in “Heather.” Consequently, it is easier to apply, but creases earlier.

Ease of Use: 9/10

This applies easily because of the shadow’s creamy consistency. You can apply with your fingers or a flat brush. Fluffier brushes won’t be able to pick up the product. You’ll need to apply a shadow over and primer underneath to keep the shadow from creasing.

Price: 9/10

For $24.00, you get 0.12 ounces of product. MAC Paint Pots cost $18.50 and contain 0.17 ounces while Metal-X Cream Shadows cost $20.00 and contain only 0.08 ounces.

Final Grade

89.25/100

    This is such a pretty colour! Too bad it’s not opaque coz it really would’ve jazzed up a smokey eye! 🙁
