Cream Shadows for £4.75?! Phase Zero Metal Foil Eye Shadows

Phase Zero Cream Eye shadow Review

Phase Zero are at it again…

I’ve been absolutely blown away by Phase Zero products in the past, and when I saw the next products to launch from them would be their ‘Metal Foil’ shadows, I was super excited.

The older I’m getting the more into cream products I seem to be – I think it’s that I find they wear more naturally on me. I was sent 4 shades to try out and give my opinions on and honestly – they’re all gorgeous (I will be ordering more!) Unusually for me, I took all the pictures for this post outside – just so I could truly capture how stunning and reflective they are.

These metal foil shadows cost £4.75 each (I know, so so cheap right !?) and you can find them over at Love Me Beauty.

Phase Zero Metal Foil Cream Eye Shadow | Formula and Application

For a cream shadow, these are a little less liquid than some (like the Charlotte Tilbury creams) and far more whipped and spongy. I find that you can quite easily pack this formula on the lid with a flat shader style brush and for being so glittery you can also blend them into the crease. My favourite way to use these however is just on a finger and patted out – that way they look super metallic (especially the shade ‘queen’).

I prep my eye with primer (generally Nars) and these last all day on my oily eye lids – so I’ve got no complaints.

Phase Zero Metal Foil Cream Eye Shadow | Shades

Phase Zero Metal Foil Cream Eye Shadow | Queen | Link

Queen is described as a ‘gorgeous light gold that delivers a shot of sparkle to your eye look.’ This is a really bright and shimmery shade that looks gorgeous washed over the lid. It’s slightly more chunky than the darker shades, which I don’t know if this holds true for all of the lighter colours in the range – but it’s beautiful nonetheless.

Phase Zero Metal Foil Cream Eye Shadow | Army | Link

Army is a beautiful khaki with gold sparkles – and it’s 100% my favourite of the bunch. I adore shades like this (as I find they’re more unusual) and this shade is smooth to the touch and extremely pigmented. Definitely get Army!

Left to Right – Cigar, Army, Smudge, Queen  

Phase Zero Metal Foil Cream Eye Shadow | Smudge | Link

Smudge is the ‘perfect deep gold brown shade to create effortless smoky eyes with.’ I must admit that this one is my least used of the bunch – but it’s so buttery and pigmented that you have to use it with a light hand ! I love this smudged (I see where Phase Zero got the name from)  around my lash line, as a sort of effortless but messy liner.

Phase Zero Metal Foil Cream Eye Shadow | Cigar | Link

Cigar is a ‘beautiful neutral brown, bronze shade with great metallic pay-off.’ It’s quite similar to smudge, but darker and warmer, this shade really suits my green eyes so I would recommend if you do too. I adore this a a wash of colour, because the more you blend it out, the more shimmery it looks.

Overall, for me, Phase Zero have done it again! I will be also ordering the shade Gold Roses – as it looks like a gorgeous rose gold shade (which you  know I’m all about).  Have you tried anything from Phase Zero yet ? If you choose to make an order, you can use the code ROBYNE5* for £5 off!
