Illamasqua 4-Colour Liquid Metal Palette: Swatches & Review

Enrapture (metallic copper), Surge (metallic steel), Phenomenon (metallic silver), and Solstice (metallic gold). 

Interesting product to have in your makeup kit. The have a similar texture to the Illamasqua Gleam highlighter but the pigmentation is much more intense.

Size: 4 x 0.07 oz at $45US / $54CAN / £34.00 for this.

From the site: "Liquid Metal is a rich and highly pigmented metallic cream that grabs full attention wherever it's applied. Smooth onto eyes, face and body with fingers or a brush and prepare to take the spotlight." That really does cover it!

Product & Colour: 
Metallic pigment suspended in a clear base. These are a cream but the formula seems to dry down quickly on these. Not a bad thing at all.




Enrapture (metallic copper) Almost more bronze then a red copper.
Surge (metallic steel) antiqued warm metal tone.
Phenomenon (metallic silver) Fine shimmer/glitter not as opaque
Solstice (metallic gold) bold bold with a hint of green to it. 

Wear: Because these are emollient they don't wear that long on there own if used on the eyes. A primer will be needed. 

Consider these as a base of something to layer over top of an eyeshadow. 
They make great body shimmers as well and highlighter on deeper skin tones or face paint.


Packaging: Glossy black compact with a solid hinge.


Daylight swatches: Enrapture, Surge, Phenomenon, and Solstice

Flash swatches: Enrapture, Surge, Phenomenon, and Solstice



Verdict: 
I like this for theatrical/editorial looks. It's not something you would need in a everyday wear users collection.
