I attended the latest collection launch from Illamasqua this evening, and wow did they give us something to talk about...
The collection 'Human Fundamentalism' encourages being who you are, and not who you are told to be. It's about breaking stereotypes and seeing it as a sign of strength and not instability. Check out the film HERE!
This collection sees the launch of a teal lipstick which certainly breaks boundaries, but frankly it's not for me *shock horror*, But that is what Illamasqua is all about, and this collection didn't disappoint, there is something for everyone.
The collection includes, 2 eye shadow palettes, 2 lipsticks, 2 nail polishes, 6 matte powder eye shadows, precision ink and a limited edition skin base.
My favourite from the entire collection was the neutral palette, it's simply beautiful! It has three matte shades and a antique gold shade called 'Vintage'.
I also liked both nail polishes (Nomad - Bright Jade) + (Stance - Fuchsia Violet), and the teal (Burst) and brown (Vernau) single eye shadows.
These 5 are my top picks!
In my goodie box, I had 'Stance' nail polish which reminds me of OPI 'Ate berries in the Canaries' but it's much more vivid and more violet, 'Vernau' eyeshadow which reminds me of a warmer 'Cork' e/s by Mac, possibly also similar to 'Texture'. I also have 'Box' which is a cool toned matte red lipstick, but I'm not so sure about it as I'm really not much of a bright lipstick lover.
The event itself was rather crazy, it was a flashback from the 90's with sweets, drinks, music and dancing. But the weirdest part was Ande Sombe who did some yoinking which left me feeling awkward but gave me the giggles!
Human Fundamentalism is available globally from March 14th online and in stores, but is available to pre order from the 7th.
Do you have your eye on anything from the new collection?
