Illamasqua Cream Eyeshadow and Liquid Metal Swatches and Review

These are the last two Illamasqua products I have left to review from the Alter Ego Mystery Set that I purchased about a month ago from Sephora. Unfortunately, that set is no longer available but you may still find these products individually.

With that said, here is the reviews and swatches of these two cream eyeshadows...

Intrude is a dark brown with grey undertone cream eyeshadow. You get about .07 oz of product. The finish is almost matte. This feels light but incredibly pigmented. This cream shadow can crease even with a primer. However, if you don't over apply and if you set it with a powder shadow, I've noticed that it helps minimize the creasing and I can actually get a about 5 hours of wear until I start noticing minor creasing. For the record, I have moderately oily lids. My only complaint about this cream shadow is the creasing. Otherwise, pigmentation and blendability is fantastic.
My rating: 8/10.

Illamasqua Liquid Metal Superior is a gorgeous metallic blue cream eyeshadow. It's extremely pigmented and emollient, which makes it really easy to blend as well. But that's just as far as it goes. This one creased within a couple minutes with and without a primer. When I applied a powder eyeshadow over it, it still creased within 30 minutes. What a shame! It is such an amazing color and finish. It creased much faster than Intrude. I'm so disappointed cause it was almost perfect. There is .05 oz of product in the packaging and I can detect a subtle vanilla scent to it.
My rating: 5/10.

  1. What a bummer! I always look at pics before I read a blog post and I was excited about these colors. I can't stand creasing!

    Great Post!

    1. yes creasing is a turn off and since I have hooded lids, it seems to make it worst.
