Illamasqua Once Collection Vintage Metalix Cream Shadows

Well aren't these just the prettiest little pots that you ever did see. I'm not often a massive fan of Illamasqua but I knew I had to get my hands on these beauties the moment I laid my eyes on them. They are little glass pots with a rosey gold screw top lid. They look ultra pretty on a dressing table and the product itself isn't far off incredible. 

I picked up shades Courtier and Embellish. Courtier is a lovely smooth pink/cream shade and Embellish is a deep brown with bronzey tones. The consistency of these shadows is just lovely, they are cream based but so soft and buttery. They blend so well and just look fantastic on the lids. They have the most incredible shimmer to them making them perfect for a night out and these two shades look wonderful used together to create a smokey eye look. 

At £16.50 a pot they are a little pricey but you only need the tiniest bit to go a long way.
