Review and EOTD: Illasmasqua 'Resolute' Liquid Metal

Hello :)
I have had this Illamasqua product for a couple of months now, and I am still playing around to see what I can do with it. I bought it during a phase when I was obsessed with cranberry and rust colors.

~Super pigmented
~Lovely colors
~Great as a base color
~Smells like vanilla and marshmallows
~Creases like there is no tomorrow.

Illamasqua is an expensive brand. This is $26 for a 0.05 oz amount. That seems kind of ridiculous, but I assure you that this product will last you a really long time. And, it is multi purpose, so you can use it for many things.
I purchased this at Sephora, and I had a 20% coupon ;)

Product Review:
 'Resolute' is a rusty,matallic cranberry color. It does have a slight burgundy look, but it is far more red than purple.Let me start with the negative things of this product. Its expensive at $26 [for me anyways]. You have to use a good primer underneath or it will start creasing within minutes.
But if you can over the price and use a good primer, then this is a really good product. You can use it alone, or use a powder eyeshadow or pigment on top of this. I recommend putting some from of powder eye shadow on top to set it and make it last longer. This has the most unique smell. My friend has a weird habit of smelling all her cosmetics, and she pointed out to me that it had a marshmallow smell, and it certainly does! I personally love the smell. The texture is very smooth, it is super easy to apply. It is very moist, more so than other cream eyeshadows. I consider this to be the exact opposite in texture to a MAC paint pot. Paint pots are very dry and slightly thick, where this is very moist and smooth. The fact that it is very moist might be the reason to why it creases so easily.

Flash. Here you can see that it is very moist looking
On my eye lid. Ah, I'm not wearing mascara or eyeliner D:

Products I Used:
~UD Primer Potion
~Illamasqua 'Resolute' on the lid, as a base and along the lower lash line.
~Coastal Scents 'Blue-Red Chrome' Pigment
~R&R 'Vintage' on the crease [a matte light brown]
~L'oreal Lineur Intense liner
~CG Lash Blast Fusion

I love the combo of 'Resolute' and the CS pigment. What do you think?
