I wear this with MAC's Ricepaper e/s on my lid from the inner corner to the center of the lid, UD Gunmetal smoked out on the outer half, and UD Creep on my outer V. Sexy, bright, smokey eyes. Never fails.

i love this shade! it looks perfect on me for evening look. it makes my eyes look more dramatic without looking overdone. for smokey eye look i love pairing it with Creep, so dramatic. i never actually tried this kind of shade, i usually go with neutral brown or dark brown for day look, guess i just found my perfect evening shade :). i got this on my naked palette, would love to purchase this shade alone. the texture itself is probably a bit creamy, its very pigmented, intense. i do love the staying power! i use naked2 palette for day look, and seriously the colors stayed put, they sticked til the end of the day, and either does this one. i love UD eyeshadows, will def repurchase this (more colors ofc)

Gunmetal is the perfect name for this eye shadow. It's a dark charcoal grey with a blue undertone. Also has glitter in it that yeilds a little bit of fallout...not as bad as urban decay snatch or sidecar but still enough for me to notice. I would put the fallout rate up there with mac luster eye shadows. Mac knight divine has the same underlying undertone and is similar but lighter and without the glitter. Pistol is also similar but it has more of a taupe undertone instead of blue and is also lighter than gunmetal. I don't like to use gunmetal in the crease very often because of the fallout and dirty look on my eyes but it can look good smoked out all over the lid. Other people have liked this look on me but I personally don't like the blue undertones on my skin so I stick to pistol most of the time for a lid color and Knight Divine for crease and outer v shading. It is a nice color overall and until I find something similar I like more then I would repurchase. I don't use this much so it will probably last a really long time.

This colour is pretty full on- it's a dark (gunmetal I guess) grey/ silver with a slight bluish tone and silvery glitter (that tends to turn dark and translate more a *texture* than sparkle). This has Urban Decay's usual good pigmentation and staying powers, and not much fallout, despite the glitter. I'm not a huge fan of the colour of this e/s (it's a bit 'goth' on me, and not in a flattering way), my real issue is how often this shade is stuck in palettes. It's in all three UD palettes I own (Vegan, BOS 4 and Mariposa), plus it's in BOS2 and Naked, and I'm fairly sure it's in at least one or two others. I get that UD puts it there as your 'deepening' or lining colour, but not so fast... This isn't all that versatile- it's too metallic to subtly darken most looks, it's too blue to necessarily work with warmer colours, it has glitter and shimmer so it looks odd with mattes or satins, of you blend it out you get fallout, as a colour to wear on your eyelid this is pretty harsh and a bit to goth for everyday looks... I mean, it's not a bad colour, but I've got enough to last a life time and it's not a colour I think I'd wear a lot, and I wear pretty dramatic eye makeup. I just wish Urban Decay would put a slightly less metallic and glittery colour in all their palettes...

I've probably gotten more compliments on my eye makeup when wearing this shadow than any other. This plus Sin makes for an easy smokey eye. I never, ever would have bought this on its own. It just looks too blue and glittery in the pan, but since it came in the Naked palette, I had an opportunity to experiment and I'm very happy I did. the pigmentation/color payof is good, it blends well, and the glitter is less obvious than In the pan. This has some interesting tones that elevate it above your average shimmery gray. One of my eyeshadow must-haves.

Gunmetal is a dark cool-toned gray with dark silver glitter. It's not too frosty or shimmery--exactly the color you'd imagine when you think of te word "gunmetal". It's somewhat similar to MAC Knight Divine and Urban Decay S&M, but Knight Divine is a little darker and more glittery, and S&M is darker.
I absolutely love this eyeshadow for a traditional smokey eye--I can simply pair it with a matte gray, or even metallic silver, but if I want something really dark, I can just pair it with UD Oilslick or MAC Carbon. (: If I want a pop of color, I can pair it with a cool-toned purple, like MAC Purple Haze. Or, if I want a neutral look, I can wear it on the outer lid with MAC Satin Taupe all over the lids.
This is pretty much a versatile eyeshadow as it matches a wide variety of eyeshadows. You just have to look beyond the horizon of neutral and black smokey eyes lol.
I do believe that this shade is in many Urban Decay palettes: Naked, Mariposa, Feminine, Book of Shadows IV, and Vegan. It's also sold individually for $18 as a single, which is what I have.
The price is a little too expensive for me, so I won't be repurchasing (I doubt I'll finish it up anyway).

This is my HG eyeshadow for my blue eyes, it's a difficult color to describe because it's so unique and cannot be duped. I would say gunmetal is a dark grey with a cornflower blue shift. Be warned, it contains glitter! In my opinion, the glitter is very minimal compared with other U.D shadows and I don't notice much fallout. This shadow lasts all day (I use primer) and I also apply it with an eyeliner brush to my lower lash line for added definition, I can't get enough of this shade and I think it's especially flattering for blue eyes if you are going for a smokey/ sultry look.$18 is a lot to spend on eyeshadow, but this stuff lasts forever and it is so pigmented that a little goes a long way!

This is a really great eyeshadow, it is very flattering on my NC25 Skin and it blends so well, the pigmentation is great and It's really pretty for a dramatic smokey eye or even for some colour in your lashline.

This shadow is smooth and pigmented. Great for a smokey eye. It's a bluish grey color with sparkles in it. I don't find that the sparkles transfer to my eyes well. I wouldn't buy it again because there are many less expensive dupes for this color.

I was looking for a "gunmetal" (shimmery gray) eyeliner but couldn't find anything in pencil or gel form that had the effect I wanted. So, out of nowhere, while hovering over the Urban Decay display at Ulta, the Gunmetal shadow gleamed. Instant love.
The shadow is smooth and the color is very saturated! It does have some silver glitter but since I mostly use it as a liner (used wet with bent liner brush) I don't have a problem with the occasional bits of glitter that appear. I always use it over UDPP, so this shadow does not budge all day.
Very slick color. Highly recommend it for dark brown eyes. I find it to be more flattering for me than a brown liner.

I use this the least out of all the colors in Naked Palette. It's a pretty grey/silver shimmer with light glitter. It's is very pretty and great for an evening out.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Dry, Olive, Warm Hair: Brown, Wavy, Fine Eyes: Green
A deep steel shimmery gray. Actually I'd say this officially surpasses "shimmery" and goes into "glittery" territory. This could be good, I guess, for a dark smokey eye for a night out. Nothing else though, it's just... too much. For me personally, not a fan.

Okay so I have really good news for you girls! I received this in a swap and tried it. I absolutely loved it, but as I started looking at it I realized I had an eyeshadow that was identical! So I looked through my makeup and found my cover girl single eyeshadow in Charcoal Frost. I then swatched both, and the only difference is that UD has those little flecks of glitter. So if you don't mind that it is minus the glitter, then totally buy it! CG is generally 4-5$ for .09 oz of product, and UD is 17$ for .o5 oz. I usually reach for my CG e/s versus the UD. Both are great products and don't get me wrong, UD is amazing and this is such a beautiful shadow. I just wanted to let you know that this is a great dupe for a budget. I will not be buying gunmetal simply because CG is so great.

I love Gunmetal its my favourite shadow from UD, i first discovered this in the book of shadows 2, i now i have a single and was pleased to find it featured in the naked palette. I love the glitter there is no fall out from this one. I usually use this all over the lid for a smokey eye or sometimes in the crease. UD shadows are buttery smooth and easy to blend out or pack on for dramatic colour. I usually use this with benefit strut underneath as a base or more recently macs dangerous curve. Gunmetal looks lovely paired with purple shadows such as flash or ecstasy. I also pair it with S&M another grey shadow from urban decay. I loe greys and this is my HG.

I love this shadow. I use it for a smokey eye often and my boyfriend always seems to compliment this color.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Very Oily, Fair Hair: Brunette, Straight, Fine Eyes: Brown
True to it's name :) I love it! I also like how there's silver bits in the shadow but for the most part it's super smooth and just a shimmer. Great shadow and I'm wearing it right now! :D
Age: 19-24 Skin: Normal, Fair-Medium, Cool Hair: Brown, Wavy Eyes: Green
My go to for a smoky eye. I don't alwaysy like to use black in the crease because it can look a little harsh, so if i want a less dramatic smoky eye i always use this in the crease! Very great charcoal grey color, very versatile, can be used as liner too. The glitter is very minimal and i don't think there has been much fallout with this color. Love it in the crease with UD's S&m on the lid.

As most others have said, this is great for a gray smoky eye look. There are small glitter flecks in it, but it's rather pretty. You can use it as shadow over the lid, the crease or even as liner. I use it as liner often. I like this and I also like Sellout and AD/DC. These all came in the BOS II.

I am so in love with this shade. I am always on the hunt for the perfect grey shadow and this one is in the running for HG. If you are a grey/silver/smokey eye junkie you MUST check this out.

I didn't think I would love Gunmetal as much as I do. In general, I love grey and silver, but I thought Gunmetal would be too deep. For me, it's the perfect steel-colored crease color and an excellent alternative to taupey shades (like Stray Dog or MAC Moth Brown.)
