Face of the Night Using Illamasqua Liquid Metal Eyeshadow in Surge

I've never been so excited by a product and then so incredibly let down. It makes me really sad to show this...

Face of the Night - Dec 2, 2011

You see, Illamasqua's Liquid Metal Eyeshadow in Surge looks like it could be the Eye Shadow Equivalent of Chanel Kaleidoscope nail polish. I got my hopes up really high on this one. Unfortunately, even over a base it was too sheer, wouldn't blend well, and then just became a mess when I tried to work other colors with it. My picture was taken only a few short minutes after application.

Also, did I mention I STILL can't get it out of my brush after three washings?
