Illamasqua Haul! (again)

img-15900000.jpg

I seem to be unable to resist Illamasqua at the moment. Here is another haul: Gimp (pure matte black) and Fatal (deep matte purple): I was concerned about how so many of the shadows from Illamasqua are matte. I asked Leena, who is a senior artist on Illamasqua in Manchester and she said the creator, Alex Box wanted to create a range that was suitable for all age ranges. Older people or anyone with overly […]

Comparison: MAC Hello Kitty Fun & Games and Nars Gina Blusher

I was playing with the colours when I dabbed a bit of this duo, Surabaya: Looks like a standard brown in this photo but in real life, it gives the most gorgeous, rich, chestnut and sugary brown shade with tons of micro sparkles. To keep […]

Pout – Round Two!

The big Pout 50% off sale had a lot of us in a daze – I made second order the day after my first, and now nearly 3 weeks later it has arrived! Hurrah! I love how big the pans are for the blushers, and the light-medium shimmer content – I was also tempted by the concealer which has a dark and light – presumably you can mix the colours together but I thought it […]
