1. FIRE QUARTZ
Fire Quartz is a peachy pink shade, it took me 3-4 coats to achieve this pigment. It is one of the few shades that was suitable for my skin tone.
2. SPIRAL GALAXY
Spiral Galaxy looks like a peachy metallic nude on my skin tone. This is one of the shades that can be worn everyday.
3. COPPER SPARK
Copper Spark is a beautiful copper brown shade. If you are someone with dusky skin tone, this color would suit you.
Gunmetal is blueish metallic shade, it is one of the few shades that has the highest pigmentation, this color was achieved with a single swipe. This is not a shade that could be worn daily, but definitely can be worn for Halloween or fashion week.
Serpentine is a metallic green shade, it has good pigmentation as compared to other matte metallic shades.
6. MOLTEN BRONZE
Molten Brown is a dark brown shade with bronze shimmer, it is suitable for dusky skin tones. It looks glossy or creamy when applied.
7. HOT LAVA
Hot Lava is a red shade with orange undertones. It is the only red shade out of the 11 shades launched in the matte metallic range. It would suit most of the skin tones and could be worn on a daily basis and special occasions as well.
8. SILK STONE
Silk stone is a brownish silver shade, this shade did not suit my skin tone. It has a very low pigmentation, in this picture I have applied 3-4 coats of the lipstick to achieve this colour.
9. PURE GOLD
Pure Gold is a golden shade with yellow undertones, it is definitely an unusual shade different shade but not something that I would wear. Though this would make an amazing highlighter, the glow is to die for.
10. WHITE GOLD
White Gold is a shade with cold undertones. This literally looked like white glossy paint on my lips. It is one of those shades from the collection that I am not a fan of, at all.
11. COPPER ROSE
Copper Rose has to be my favourite shade out of all the 11 shades. It is a deep plum metallic shade and works great for my skin tone. It takes 2-3 swipes to give a uniform pigmentation.
The shades that I would buy again : Copper Rose, Hot Lava and Fire Qaurtz
