Good Palette, Bad Palette: Illamasqua Neutral Palette vs. Sleek Au Naturel Palette

Illamasqua-Neutral-Palette-Swatches.jpg

Maybe it’s just my old age (YOU DON’T HAVE TO AGREE WITH ME) but I have quietly shoved my beloved acid greens and luminous neon blues into the bottom drawer and rediscovered a love for all things neutral, warm, flattering.  There are so many nice neutral eyeshadow palettes out there to choose from these days, […]

Bridal Make Up Trial No. 2 at Illamasqua

Illamasqua-Cream-Pigment-Powder-Eye-Shadow-Skin-Base-Foundation-.jpg

Illamasqua…for BRIDAL!? I know.  This was the wildcard make over because let’s face it, Illamasqua is not the brand that pops to mind when you think of your glowing fresh faced bride with barely there make up (mind you – super natural isn’t for me!).  Speaking to a lot of MUAs who do bridal, they […]

Illamasqua Naked Strangers Release!

Illamasqua-Naked-Strangers-1.jpg

I thought that this Illamasqua Naked Stranger’s release was very lovely looking so thought I’d share these images with you! Naked Strangers to me implies nude colours – which this kind of is but it’s been styled in quite a dramatic way. They say: A place where alter egos are laid bare and naked flesh […]

Illamasqua Theatre of the Nameless Blusher, Rubber Polish and Precision Ink Review!

Illamasqua-Powder-Blusher-Nail-Varnish-Precision-Ink-.jpg

To be honest I haven’t bought anything from Illamasqua for a while.  Maybe its because it’s quite dark and brooding and I’ve been in the mood for princessy and light packaging lately! However – I was sent three products from the Illamasqua ‘Theatre of the Nameless’ collection to try.  I hadn’t seen the collection so […]

Illamasqua Toxic Nature Collection – Cream Pigment & Lip Stick Swatches

Illamasqua-Toxic-Nature-Spring-Summer-2011.jpg

Illamasqua’s Spring 2011 collection is called Toxic Nature and having had a sneak peak last week at their blogger event I have to say it’s a really nice turn for the brand. For one thing, there’s a softness which appeals to me. Unpredictable, uncharted and unnatural, Illamasqua unleashes Toxic Nature for Spring/Summer 2011, a colour […]

Nice Package: Illamasqua Body Electrics Illume Body Oil and Liquid Metal

Illamasqua-Illumine-Oil-Body-Glow.jpg

In case you didn’t know, Illamasqua launched their latest collection, entitled Body Electrics a few days ago. The imagery from this collection is stunning; fantasy like and dreamy: I received a totally unexpected but lovely parcel from Illamasqua containing two of the products from the Body Electrics collection – the Illumie Body Oil in Pulse, […]

Moving on to my collection of Illamasqua Lipsticks now (I have about 20 of these). These are just my representations of the colour bear in mind lipsticks look different on everyone! Illamasqua lipstick in Over looks like a pinkish orange in my pan – but it applies quite sheer and is very wearable. Yay or […]

Moving on to my collection of Illamasqua Lipsticks now (I have about 20 of these). These are just my representations of the colour bear in mind lipsticks look different on everyone!

Illamasqua lipstick in Strip – a pure white – thick and opaque. You don’t need me to tell you that this lipstick is not […]

Lip Swatches: Illamasqua Lipstick in Submit Swatch No. 1

Illamasqua-Lipstick-submit.jpg

Moving on to my collection of Illamasqua Lipsticks now (I have about 20 of these). These are just my representations of the colour bear in mind lipsticks look different on everyone! I love Illamasqua lipsticks for their pigmentation and long lasting abilities. However – I also find the textures drying so its not a lipstick […]
