to be honest it is very difficult to walk you through EXACTLY what you should do with Metro Powders - there are literally 1000's of things you could do! One of the most popular looks will be how I have been wearing mine - a hologram powder tip with Perfect Pink Zone 2 & 3!! Just place your MM Bead as you would your Perfect White in Zone 1, create your smile and then apply a coat of Perfect Clear over the top...it's not so much as to seal it but it does stop you buffing the sparkles which then turn silver!! Do zone 2 & 3 as normal!! If you are still not sure, come and see Diane Plummer on the Monday in November doing Xmas looks with Metro Powders (ask Leeds OSNS for dates))!! Hope this has been handy :rolleyes: ;)

As Carrie, from Sex and the City would say "ME LIKEY" :D

do you get the metro powders etc in a kit form? are they smooth to work with?

They are really stunning.

hiya smiler :D
the metro colur powders r being sold in a set & it comes with a 4oz( i think that size) retention+ liquid.
it is a really gd price as it includes the liquid.
most of the powders r extremly smooth, the only 1 that is slightly less is the white as it has big pieces of glitter in it, but it's worth it when it's on as it looks gorge 8)
lol liza xx

l don't think what you asked was a silly question, and l don't know the answer either, :rolleyes: but l would have thought removals were the same - don't worry, if i'm wrong then someone is bound to tell us.
