Liquid Metal in Phenomena by Illamasqua. Review and Swatches

As I promised here is the first review of Illamasqua products. This time it’s liquid metal in Phenomena from the latest collection called Dystopia.

What is written @ the official Illamasqua website about this product:

Prepare to dazzle with this gloriously rich and highly pigmented metallic cream. Use to adorn eyes, face and body, and apply with fingers or a brush. Release your inhibitions and illuminate your alter ego.

£16.00 , 1.5g (0.05 OZ)

Available in:

  1. Solstice, Molten gold
  2. Enrapture, Molten bronze
  3. Phenomena, Molten silver

So what do I think:

I was very excited to try this product but I was a bit afraid because of the cold silver colour. I have warm brown eyes and I usually wear warm colours. But I totally loved how Phenomena looked on eyes! I felt in love with this product from the first sight. The design is amazing and stylish the products is very pigmented and you need a small amount so it will last you for a long time.  Plus I really loved how it smells (and it is very important for me).

My recommendations:

You can put it on with brush or just fingers. I’ve tried both ways and it’s very easy to use it with your fingers, so don’t worry.

Be careful when you put it on  and don’t touch anything if you put it on with your fingers because you may end up with glitter all over your face and clothes.

You can use liquid metal on your eyes, lips or somewhere else. I’ve tried it on my lips (on the balm) and it looked great!

A base is essential when you wear liquid metal because it will crease without a base. You can also put it on  a shadow. I would not recommend to put it all over your lid because it doesn’t look very nice at the end of the day.

My conclusion:

It  will look great just on everyone!

The best about this products is that you can create looks for every day on one hand but at the same time you can create bold and extravagant looks. The choice is up to you 😉

This products is just a must have for winter especially for New Year. You can create a lot of amazing looks using this colour.  Visit Illamasqua for inspiration 😉 Here is one  of the looks from Dystopia collection.

Now I also plan to get the other 2 colurs. By the way,  I read that summer collection by Illamasqua will be something very special so I can’t wait till April!

So what do you think? Do you like Illamasqua? What are your favourite products? What would you like to try?

You can get Illamasqua from Selfridges.
