Illamasqua's Liquid Metal in 'Electrum'

I received this in my BBB Beauty Edit Box. Having never owned anything by Illamasqua I didn't really know what to expect. Illamasqua describe the shade 'electrum' as an antique gold and it is very much that. I don't often wear gold shades so I was worried that it wouldn't get much use.
Nevertheless, I gave it a whirl and I must say I'm very impressed. Illamasqua describe the liquid metal range as a 'rich and highly pigmented metallic cream that grabs full attention wherever it's applied. Smooth onto eyes, face and body with fingers or a brush and prepare to take the spotlight'. 

It has the most divine creamy texture that blends seamlessly. It's also very buildable. As I said earlier, I'm not a huge fan of wearing gold on my eyes so I apply a thin layer to keep it looking subtle. But it's just as easy to create a more intense look - which is really nice for an evening/smokey look by layering it a little. 
Have you tried anything from the liquid metal range? I'm really interested in trying out Illamasqua's cream pigments (if they're anything like this then I'm sure I'd fall in love with them too).
