Illamasqua Powdered Metal in Ether







Illamasqua Powdered Metal in Ether - I don't think you can pick this shade up on their website any more but you can get Thalia here - might be worth a bit of Googling if you want to pick this up as I got it in a Glossybox

Illamasqua's Powdered Metal is a really lovely powder highlighter. I got this in a Glossybox ages ago, and was very happy with the box that month! This can be a subtle highlighter or can be built up to create more of an intense highlight depending on the look that you are trying to achieve. 

I usually use whatever product is in the lid as powder products like this can be quite difficult to use because if you dipped a brush where the product comes out, it is very likely that the brush would be covered in the highlighter and potentially you would look as though you dipped your face in highlighter, but each to their own - everyone applies products differently! 


I applied this quite thick here so you would be able to see the colour of the highlighter. Obviously, I wouldn't apply the product to my face as intensely as this but I just wanted to show you the highlighter in the best way possible. 

I wouldn't say this is my favourite highlighter as I usually reach for my Benefit High Beam (you can see a review here) but I do like to use it if I'm going on a night out or want my look to be that bit more glamorous. I love cream products and so I think a cream highlighter is next on my list. 

Can you recommend a good cream highlighter? Have you tried this product?

  1. I tend to use Soap and Glory or Meteorites for highlighting, this looks very pretty but would probably be too obvious on my very pale skin!

  3. This looks so lovely, so many highlighters are very cold toned and pearly but I love this gold colour, would be perfect for when the sun comes out! x
