I got this Liquid Metal from Illamsqua quite awhile ago but until recently I hadn't really used it. It is a cream eyeshadow and I wasn't really sure that gold would suit me but I recently tried it and I really like it. You may remember that I got this in a mystery gift box quite awhile ago.
The packaging has an unusual shape, I don't know what shape you'd call it but it isn't fully square. All of Illamsqua's powder and cream products are packaged in this way. The pot is made of plastic and it is clear so you can see the colour of the product, the lid is a simple black lid with the logo in the middle. The packaging is very simply but I really like it. It is quite compact so it doesn't take up to much space in my makeup bag.
I have the shade Electrum which is a metallic gold. I have worn it is an eyeshadow a couple of times. It applies really easily, it is very creamy and pigmented but it is very easy to blend. I actually like to wear this as an eyeliner. I like to apply a pale shimmery shade on my eyelids and using the Real Techniques Fine Liner Brush I apply this to my lids. I create a thin line without a flick. I really like the look that this creates. I think it would be great to wear to a Christmas party. I like using this as an eyeliner as it doesn't smudge or transfer and it will last all day.
I don't know whether I would pay £17.50 as it seems quite a lot of money for something that I don't use on a daily basis.
