Cool effect. I like the reflection and the colors on his face. Is that from the uv shield or did you use a gel and snoot? You've got a great eye for what makes a good shot.

Strait strobe with a snoot on the subject with spill onto the mask. The colors are created by the coating and sensors of the mask.
Because silver and black are the same color, a black, shiny item is the same as a silver item (mirror) if it's overexposed.
Black custom cars make really cool images if overexposed by two stops.
