You know what they say: you either put the focus on your lips and go for bold lipstick, or you concentrate on your eye make-up and draw attention to your eyes. I already wrote a piece on lips earlier this week in my review on the new MAC Huggable Lipcolour lipsticks, so today it’s time to focus on the eyes. At the beginning of January MAC Cosmetics launched its new Metallic Nude collection here in Switzerland, and I got my hands on two products from that collection: the MAC Extra Dimension Eyeshadow in Amorous Alloy, and the MAC Fluidline in Our Secret. I’ve been experimenting all week with my new two MAC goodies, and today I’m showing you my favorite look, based on the MAC Metallic Nude campaign picture. That means smokey eyes with a metallic twist, and nude skin and lips!
MAC Extra Dimension Eyeshadow in Amorous Alloy
Amorous Alloy is a warm brownish copper shade with a metallic finish. The color looks mouthwateringly gorgeous in the pan – I mean, just look at it! – and since most of my MAC eyeshadow is Pro refill eyeshadow it’s nice to finally have a MAC eyeshadow with a pretty print. Amorous Alloy is easy to apply and has minimal fall-out, and the coverage is nice and even. With a good eyeshadow primer underneath the color stays perfectly put from AM to PM.
MAC Fluidline in Our Secret
Our Secret is a lovely warm chocolaty brown shade with a metallic finish. Like all MAC Fluidlines, Our Secret is waterproof, very long-lasting and easy to apply in one smooth movement. For my Magnetic Nude look I used Our Secret on my lower and upper lash line, but you can also use it as an eyeshadow base and maybe even as eyeshadow on its own, kind of like a MAC paint pot.

Alright, enough talk, let’s check out the look!
Pretty cute, right*? I personally really love a smokey eye + nude lip combo, so this is a look I’ll definitely wear again in the future!
* I initially wanted to copy the model’s pose from the campaign shot, but that didn’t turn out very well… giant nostrils + an about-to-sneeze look = not very attractive
The MAC Magnetic Nude collection has been available since January in all MAC stores as well as in the MAC online store. The MAC Extra Dimension Eyeshadow in Amorous Alloy and the MAC Fluidline in Our Secret will set you back 32 and 26 CHF.
