Hot charcoal with a side of torment

Torment is the first Aromaleigh color I've come across that let me down. On the website and even in the sample bag, it appears to be a brilliant metallic red. However, it didn't quite come out that way when applied. I'm going to try this look again, but do some foiling to see if that helps the color.
That being said, it's still a nice color, just not what I was expecting.

I just couldn't bring myself to give up on the look I had imagined, so I tried putting Hot Hot Hot (Aromaleigh Rocks! glitter) over it. It was my first attempt at using glitter as anything more than a liner, so it's a bit uneven. I used Aromaleigh's Indelible Eyeliner Sealant to apply it. This brought me much closer to the look I was trying for.

Does anyone have a suggestion for a metallic red eyeshadow?

I just got a couple of reds from Glamour Doll Eyes, and even though I hate Twilight with a passion, the GDE Twi-Shadow 'Just Bitten' is a really pretty red. There's also Lover's Lane, but that's a bit more burgundy, and Taylor, which is a bit more pink.

I would suggest Sugarpill Asylum, but it's probably not the kind of red you're looking for?
