Illamasqua Liquid Metal in Phenomena review

Friday, 25 January 2013

I first mentioned this product in my Illamasqua haul a few weeks ago. I love cream shadows, I wear them near enough everyday. So when I saw this silver one in the Illamasqua sale for only £5 I had to pick it up.

It's called Liguid Metal and the shade is called Phenomena.

I really like the shade and the packaging, I think all Illamasqua packaging seems to look so sleek, 

modern and catches my eye. As for the colour it's really nice, it's so pigmented.

The two pictures below show the products on the eye, sorry they're not very clear from my phone.

The only problem is... lasting power.

I put it on and an hour later it looks like this:

It fades and creases making it look really horrible and I have to apply it again at least once an hour and I'm not going to bother with that as I don't want to be bringing this and a brush around. So if I'm going anywhere I tend to avoid this product as I had such high hopes about it.

Have you tried this?

What Illamasqua products do you want/have?


  1. This colour looks amazing, thats the problem with cream eyeshadow it tends to cream a lot! you could try patting some loose powder on top to help it stay a bit longer xx

  2. I love your blog! Great post! about to follow!
