MAC Metal Urge: Review and Swatches

MAC Cosmetids Metal Urge Collection

A rich new vein of rare earth-inspired shine and shadow is ready to be mined. Enhance your precious worth with Brushed Metal-X Eye Shadow. Excavate the delights of new and bring-back shades of Pigment, Reflects Glitter, and Liquidlast Liner. Give in to the urge!

Overall, the metal urge eye shadows are an improvement from Metal-x collection.  The eye shadow texture applied very smooth and cremey, but yet have good color pay-off.   If your not into creme based textures, I'd pass on this one. 

Yesterday at the MAC store, only two items came home with me: Verdigris eye shadow and Spiritiualize pigment.  My MA had both these shades piled on with no creasing, this is a good sign.

Check out the swatches below.

I love Verdigirs and Dress Khaki. They have so many collections it's impossible to keep up, it's like a new one comes out almost every week!

Dress Kahaki was my second favorite! I know right? It's like a love hate relationship with MAC but we always come back :)!

Hi Steph,
Love your blog. You wrote: Always wrap the free edge or tip throughout each step. I didn't see this step in the video. Could you please explain how to do the wrap process and with what material. Thank you.

I am wondering if these gel polishes can be used with other gels. I have a different system with a different brand of base coat and top coat, can the different brands of gel mix?

I've had my kit for a couple of months now and love the way it lasts; but the Structure and Brilliance brushes are starting to stiffen and so is the gel in the bottles. Anyone else having that issue? Is there a way to thin them out?

Hi, does anyone know if I can thin out the red carpet base coat so that it is easier to apply?

Hi Prinzy,
It was a gorgeous color! I remember picking up a few bottles because I loved the color so much! lol! Actually, yes, I'm launching a store in the next couple of weeks. I have everything built, I'm just working on the Terms and Conditions right now, so it should be very, very soon.

I only have about 10 Studio M colors in the store currently, but I will be taking special pre-orders once it opens.

I've been playing with this system for about a month now. I love it! When I first started I used the clear just so I could get a feel for it. Then I got adventurous and tried a "sandwich" with a China Glaze color. It probably would have stayed on longer if I had been able to seal off the edges, but my nails were so short it was a bit difficult. The next time I used RCM gel polish in Simply Stunning (a pale slightly shimmery nude color). This time I had gotten enough practice to really make my coats thin and it worked out fabulous. I'm trying to send all my friends the Ulta 20% coupon (5/26 is the last day) so they can get a kit for about $64. :) Now I hope to get a little creative with color combos and nail design. Thanks for the review.
