With Metallic Powder created by the iconic beauty brand, Mehron, you have the option of a subtle or bold shimmer. And with its six color shades – Gold, Silver, Bronze, Copper, Rose Gold, and Lavender – there is a range of hues to choose from. Follow these tips to create your own frosted lip color with this versatile, ultra-fine makeup.
