Review: Illamasqua’s Molten Metal

Hi Glamifys,

About a month back, there was a big sale at Illamasqua and I purchased quite a few items.

Below is my previous review of the fundamental palette

Included in the fundamental palette was also a molten metal in surge.

Molten metals intrigued me so along with the fundamental palette, I purchased individual pots in phenomena (gunmetal/bronze), electrum ( gold) and surge (silver).

I would put it out there that while the colors are brilliant and pigmented, molten metal creases extremely terribly. So far, I have tried primers to prevent creasing or eyeshadows on top of molten metal to set it. Nothing has worked. Not even wiping my eyelid with toner to remove any trace of oil.

Yes I am extremely disappointed.

However, below are the swatches just in case someone finds a way to prevent the creasing or at least minimize it to an extent where the molten metal could actually stay on the lid for half a day.
