The Aftermath Collection from Illamasqua is dark and beautiful and all about molten metallics. Aftermath includes three new molten lava lipsticks, and also has five metallic eyeshadows. There are two new liquid metallic shadows, in addition, there are three new powder shades. I am crazy about metallic, shimmering, sparkly eyeshadows, so I was excited to purchase both of the new two liquid metals, Broken Silver ($26), and Broken Gold ($26). Also, I purchased one of the three powder shades, Hoard($23).
Metallic Eyeshadows : Molten Metal Liquid Eye Toppers
The Broken Silver and Gold liquid metallic eyeshadows have different sized silver or gold glitter particles that float in a clear, gel formula. One swipe of the doe-footed wand. and you’ll have a metallic finish. Continue to add layers, consequently will result in a foiled look. Broken Silver or Gold can be worn alone, or they can be layered over an eyeshadow. The formula is long-lasting.
These eye gels have a cracked foil formula that results in a shattered effect, hence you can use them for multi-purposes. They look incredible when used to highlight your cheekbones, the inner corner of your eye, your brow bone, and your Cupid’s bow. When they catch the light your face will look illuminating.
Broken Gold and Silver are Gel Eye Embellishments, opposite of creamy, opaque eyeshadows. They are a liquid veil of sparkling silver, or gold. If you are expecting them to act as a traditional eyeshadow, this is not the product for you.
Metallic Eyeshadow Powder
Three new shades of Metallic Eyeshadow Powder are part of the Aftermath Collection. The shades are:
Enchantment – a dark golden bronze- brown in a shimmery finish
Supersticious – a blackish-silver in a shimmery finish
Hoard- a golden-bronze in a shimmery finish
These earthy shades, in the Aftermath Collection, have a beautiful shimmer. Texture of the shadows is amazing because they have a buttery, creamy formula with no fallout. The result is they blend perfectly on the skin. Intense pigments are as true on the eyelids as they are in the pan . These shadows are perfect If you are looking for a smokey eye look this Fall, then these shadows are perfect.
Illamasqua is cruelty free makeup that’s main focus is on color. The shades in the Aftermath Collection are dark and beautiful. This season, the Illamasqua theme is “embracing the change of seasons.” The rich earthy shimmers of the powder shadows, and the molten metallics of the lips and eye embellishment shadow toppers were created to help us embrace the light as the seasons start to change. Winter’s dreariness becomes the Aftermath of a summer filled with light. The makeup from this collection is “smouldering through, letting light come through, in a time of darkness.
