Mega-Hot Metallic Loose Powder Eye Shadows

Loose powder metallic eye shadows are amazing and easy-to-apply bursts of color. Shimmery shades for eyes are very trendy right now, and these loose shadows are great for gals on the go.

You apply these shadows the same way you would loose face powder: Just shake some powder into the cap and dip your shadow brush in. You can use the shimmer on your eyes and to brighten your whole face. But use sparingly: Loose shadows spread easily, so just a touch will do the trick. Here are two of the latest loose powder metallic eye shadows for Summer.

Glam Rocks by Lorac ($16) are sparkly and sassy loose powder shadows packed in a small container that looks like a salt shaker. These easily blendable colors glide on smoothly and last a long time, so you can party the night away without worry. Glam Rock come in three shades: Metallic Copper, Metallic Pearl, and Metallic Gold.

For one more metallic loose powder eyeshadow,

La Poudre Aux Yeux by Lancome ($18.50) add just a touch of brilliance to your eyes. They are formulated with a highly saturated and intense shimmer pigment that can also be used to highlight your cheekbones or collarbone for some sexy sparkle! They are available in two colors: Golden Sunrise and Pink Seduction.

I am very interested in this new type of makeup. I keep seeing it pop up. I don't know how to use it. Is it easy to use? Can you blend it with other color like power shadows? It really looks interesting.

I was going to say the same thing, prissy. Bare Escentuals has some great metallic shadows. I got a set of three and one is gold, one has an orange-ish tint, and one is shimmery cocoa. I love them all and they are great for jazzing up your look. Bummer about the Lancome, Jen! :mob:

I love loose powder shadows!! The Lorac looks great!! I've been really disappointed in Lancome's La Poudre Aux Yeux. :( Which is sad, because I'm a Lancome girl at heart. The shades in their spring collection were very shimmery but hardly pigmented. I'll have to check the new shades out!
