Long gone are the days of metallic shadows worn only by rocker chicks and rage parties. Metallics have transformed into sexy and chic. This season’s hottest colors are made in metallics, chrome, shimmer and sparkle. Whether heading out for the night, or to the office by day, your eyes are sure to dazzle this season.

1. Bobbi Brown Metallic Long-Wear Cream Shadow $22
One of this seasons most popular shadows to try are Bobbi Brown’s Metallic Cream Shadows. Bobbi Brown’s award-winning cream shadows now have a little sparkle, but are still sheer and lightweight enough for everyday wear. Glide these on for day or layer by night.

2. MAC Style Black Mineralize Eyeshadows $19.50
Of some of the most intense eye shadows I have come across, MAC Mineralize eye shadows deliver. Bring out your inner punk in these shear, pearly mineralized shadows. They consist of two shades that are baked together in one pan. You are sure to dazzle in four stunning colors, including Guilt by Association, Young Punk, Cinderfella, and Blue Flame. 

3. Revlon Illuminance Cream Shadow $6.50
For the sheerest, most luminous eyes try Revlon’s Illuminance Cream Shadow. These highly blendable shadows are long wearing and crease resistant. They can be worn alone or layered with your favorite shadow. I love the ease of these palettes, and they are available in 12 shades!

4. Bobbi Brown Chrome Eyeshadow $22
Dress your eyes up in these chrome shadows. With reflective pearls, these shadows were made to look like liquid metal on the lid. How cool is that! These shadows come featured in Bobbi Brown’s signature eyeshadow palette.   

5. Nars Softouch Shadow Pencil $22
These intriguing and sensual shadows are perfect for a festive and glamorous look. Glisten with a pink champagne shimmer, iridescent copper or a smoldering black. These pencils go on smooth and are long-wearing with the ease of applying in just one stroke. Blend on the lid, smudge across the lash line or highlight the inner corners of the eyelid or brow bone. Small enough to throw in your purse.

6. Duwop Crush Molten Metallic Eyeshadow Trio $24
These stunning warm shades give you the look and intesity of a cream but with the ease and convenience of a powder. Use these beautiful colors as a shadow or eyeliner with intense richness and big payoff.
