Illamasqua Liquid metal in Electrum £17.50
Visiting the Illamasqua counter quite a few months back in Debenhams, (this shopping trip), I was immediately drawn like a magpie to the shiny liquid metal. I didn't have a use I just knew I had to have it, of course I didn't just buy a pot, I had to go with the mystery box which would include the liquid metal in Electrum and the liquid eyeliner precision ink in glister along with a few mystery items, at £35.00 a bargain. Now although I've had this for months it's only now that I decide to try it, Christmas is around the corner and I want a quick, simple fancy look.
The colour is amazing, pure electrum. A bold, gold, I get the feeling that if I had a few thousand pots I could make myself look like a bond girl. Sadly this colour on its own has been discontinued (can be picked up from Ebay) however there are other gold colours in the Illamasqua range and you can still get electrum in the liquid metal palette (£34.00) along with three other colours.
From now on I'll concentrate on the product itself. It's really glossy and easy to work with, you can apply with your finger, brush or sponge. I definitely think you need to blot/powder beforehand if you have oily skin, this product is so slick any extra moisture is a no no. I like the fact that you can use just a little bit for a light, casual effect or go full on.
Now not only can you wear it on your eyes but really you can put it anywhere, in the photo below I've applied it my lips as well, just lightly but I really love the colour.
