Welcome to the Darkness - Illamasqua Powdered Metal in Ether Photos , Review & Swatches

 I am loving all the promo images of illamasqua Art of Darkness collection.
Its one of most creative and mind blowing collection from illamasqua.
I was lucky enough to sent  Powdered Metal in Ether,which was on my wish list since i first laid my eyes on the collection . I got it yesterday and i ripped it open , literally !! and when i saw it in the black envelope, a beautiful smile came on my face, thinking Dreams do come true.
I ran in to my room and swatched it for you.
Read the review and swatches after the jump

What it is:
Website Claims: Revel in an intense radiance that no one can ignore. Apply to body and face to create anything from a subtle sheen to an extreme metallic finish. Step into the limelight and demand to be noticed.

 Illamasqua Powdered Metal in Ether is a very finely milled loose powder with golden flecks in it.
Packaging is so unique and eye catching.I love the whole bug thing on the cover.
I use a sheer wash of illamasqua  Powdered Metal in ether on cupid's bow, top of cheekbones , sometimes my forehead and nose for the perfect healthy glow.
It could be used as a powder or for that"beautiful" glow , by mix it with your foundation.Its definitely is a build able. you can use it lightly or layer it for bit more intense look.
you get so much product in the jar that I wouldn't hesitate to use it all over again and again .
This isn't an over the top gold sparkle, which looks tacky , but instead , illamasqua  Powdered Metal in Ether is absolutely perfect for a warm or neutral toned girl looking for a high quality highlighter.This adds more glow and is in fine glitter rather than shimmery.
It comes with a puff, i prefer using a brush when using it on face, as i am so clumsy and so impatient , i tend to ruin the whole look.
This multi-purpose highlighter powder. It can be used on Face as well as on body.
For eyes, i used a little mixing medium and mix with Ether and applied , it looked stunning.
This is a perfect powder, if you use mineral or loose blushes, just add a little bit of Ether with your favorite blush , and it will look stunning .
