Tired of the same old matte eyeshadow tones? Then try some creamy metallic finish ones instead, courtesy of MAC Cosmetics. Select your favorite tones from the nine alternatives included in the latest Metal X collection.

You can never have too many collections in one season. The well known philosophy that MAC Cosmetics has adopted over the years is once again successfully applied for a new eyeshadow collection called Metal-X Cream Eyeshadows. Although Metal-X eyeshadows were released in 2007, the new formulations of the eyeshadows aim to drastically improve quality.

Apparently, the brand's strategy is to make the most of one launch, given the fact that they scheduled the Metal-X collection in the same day with the recently presented Daphne Guinness for MAC collection. This means that the collection will be launched on Boxing Day, December 26 in North America while internationally, in January 2012.
