Inika Mineral Eyeshadow Gun Metal Review
Inika Mineral Eyeshadow – Gunmetal.
Gunmetal – molten silver which looks like mercury when applied wet or over black eyeliner. Has the tiniest hint of purple and is gorgeous metallic silver.
Inika eyeshadows (1.2 g) are rich in pigment providing vibrant and opulent colours that last all day. The purity of ingredients mean they are perfect for even the most sensitive eyes. Inika eyeshadows are multipurpose and can be used wet or dry as a shadow or liner.
Inika powder eye shadows are incredibly versatile and can be applied in three different ways to create different looks and shades. Inika craft the most vibrant, opulent and sexy colours you’ve ever seen. This is achieved by refracting light through iron oxides. The purity of the Inika pigments gives you amazing satiability and depth of colour.
Pick up a little powder, press the product into the brush, tap off the excess and apply as desired. Create amazing metallic or iridescent looks by layering one colour on top of another. Add water for use as liquid eyeliner.
Retails for 12 pounds per pot in the United Kingdom.

My Take on Inika Mineral Eyeshadow – Gun Metal:
Lovely colour. One of the few eye shadows I own. I feel I would be using it more as an eyeliner rather than a shadow as am not good with them. This is near black-silver-hue of purple colour. Perfect for a night time or some eye experiment. I am not too fond of eye shadows, but I still feel this is a must in any collection. Being mineral, it can be used by ladies with sensitive skin too. They have a range of brushes, highly rated eye liners and other cosmetics, which I would love to try.
I have attached a picture of how it looks on my eyes, just dabbed lightly with fingers.
Pros of Inika Mineral Eyeshadow Gun Metal:
• I love the packaging, elegant and simple, and it is designed such that you don’t get powder everywhere when you open it.
• The colour is a beautiful gun metal colour, can be used in a lot of ways.
• It is a mineral cosmetic.
• The cute little pot is a keeper.
• The eye shadow is highly pigmented, you need the tiniest bit.
• Doubles up as eyeliner too.
• All shadows are multipurpose and can be used as a shadow, highlighter, contour powder and even eyeliner.
Cons of Inika Mineral Eyeshadow Gun Metal:
• This eye shadow sheds massively. After I was done applying a little, I could see quite a bit on my under eye, not good.
• The price, helloooo, 11 pounds for this little thing? nopesyyy dropsy!
• Availability. I haven’t seen any Inika stuff on shelves in India, dissapointment.
3 on 5, good colour though
