Illamasqua has kindly sent me these to try. However, luckily I did have input in what they sent me.. so these are things I wanted myself and would have purchased anyway.
First of all I want to say I LOVE the black packaging, it's so sleek and sophisticated and makes me feel special when I open something! Now lets see what I have..
"Rude" Cream blush: I love this peachy colour, it's the perfect consistency and colour for my skin tone, I have been lusting over this for AGES and know that this is going to become a summer favourite!
"Lies" Cream blush: A gorgeous frosty pink colour. I see myself using this as a highlighter on my cheekbone or even mixed in with "Rude" how AMAZING? These cream blushes can also be worn on the lips! They have a really soft, creamy and blendable texture that give a stunning dewy finish.
"Lover" Powder blush: A beautiful highly pigmented peachy coral colour, again perfect for the summer and on any skin tone.
Ahhhh the bronzing and highlighting duo, now this is gorgeous. I have it in Glint and Burnish, the darker of the two that are available. This compact has a mirror inside making it perfect for travelling, this is definately going to be the bronzer I take with me if I'm going on holiday - LOVE! It's quite pigmented with no sparkles, just a lovely matt sheen.
On to the eyeshadows! I have "Deamon" a powder shadow which is the vibrant red, "Vapour" another powder shadow which is the orange and "Outcast" the yellow which is a cream shadow. The powder eyeshadows are VERY pigmented (these two are anyway), I can't wait to work with them! The cream eyeshadow is also very pigmented but is also quite sheer making it easy to blend and vary the finish you want to achieve. Love LOVE Love!
Pigment: "Furore" An amazing sparkley nude finish, this would also make a great highlighter and obviously a great all over lid colour! TIP: You could mix this in with your nail polish top coat, how hot would that look?
Oh my god! These eyelashes are the best I have ever seen.. look at the shape? I can't wait to wear these! :)
Yes, another eyeliner brush, one can never have too many! It will be interesting to see how this compares.
Lipgloss: "Soul" from the Sirens collection. Now this is supposed to be sheer but it's not really :) it's VERY pigmented, it's a lovely nude peach colour, perfect for me!
Sealing Gel: You can mix this with eyeshadow or pigment to create a colour intense paste that dries quickly and lasts for hours! I can't wait to try this - don't worry I will keep you all informed :)
Satin Primer SPF20: This has a gorgeous texture, slightly comparable to Mac's strobe cream, it gives a lovely dewy finish that can be used alone or mixed with product!
Finally a little photo of me, here's what I am wearing: Face - Illamasqua satin primer, BB skin foundation, Just a tiny dab of Rude cream blush, Illamasqua bronzing duo. Eyes - Burnish from Illamasqua bronzing duo on crease. Max Factor false lash effect mascara. Lips - same random combo as yesterday (mac hue, max factor english rose and a rosey lipliner)
