Illamasqua Surge Liquid Metal: a FOTD, review, and swatches.

I’m falling more and more in love with Illamasqua.

I picked up a few items in my last Sephora haul- their lipstick in Ignite, Ore pigment, and of course Surge liquid metal. Who can resist their amazing pigmentation, innovative textures, and lustworthy colour range?

Here is a wearable, work friendly FOTD featuring Surge Liquid Metal that I wore last week:


– MAC Mystery e/s mixed with a little bit of MAC Shadowy Lady e/s in crease.
– Illamasqua Surge Liquid metal applied on the lid and inner corners
– MAC Omega to blend out harsh lines above crease.


– MAC Posie Blushcreme

– Hourglass Prodigy Lip Gloss ‘Eden’

Onto the review!


Illamasqua Surge Liquid Metal is a warm silver with a subtle hint of light gold. It can be applied sheer to achieve a warm silver sheen or layered to get a full blown foiled metallic finish.


The Liquid Metal is a cream product, with a silky texture that glides easily onto the eye.

It doesn’t really dry down to a powder finish like some cream products (ie MAC Paint Pots, Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadows) so it tends to transfer if you accidentally touch your shadow, and crease a little throughout the day. I don’t really mind this- it still looks very pretty when creased, and I bring this product with me to retouch during the day and apply with fingers.
