I’ll admit I didn’t have high hopes for Filament when I knew first off it was a Lustre finish. *sigh* This really is just such a beautiful pure silver color but the finish ruins it completely. I feel these Lustre shades are nothing more than pure glitter pressed into a pan! Agh! Like Idol Eyes and Honesty I found myself needing to use an eyeshadow transformer for a LOT of the looks below; that is the only thing that cuts the fallout and glitter down to nothing when using a Lustre finish. I also layered it over a paint pot (in look #3) and while I really like the effect created in that look, I still don’t know if this one is going or staying. If you want to recreate some of the below looks and do not want to purchase Filament to do it (hey, I wouldn’t either!), you could easily substitute Electra in its place.
MAC eyeshadows used:
- Jesse’s Girl Eyeshadow Transformer for Filament
- Filament (inner half of lid)
- Copperplate (outer half of lid)
- Quarry (crease) – really a light purple, even though it looks pink here
- Vanilla (blend)
