Illamasqua - I'MPERFECTION

Nothing is perfect, only uniquely beautiful; in fact within the word 'imperfect' live two words that challenge it - 'I'm perfect'. Alex Box

I'mperfection the latest Spring collection from Illamasqua....



The products I will be mainly discussing are these beauties...

The Brush.

A push up bra for your cheeks? This new angled brush aims to redefine the way we apply blusher. It's specifically designed for powder blusher and is applied to the contour of your cheekbone and then pushed up! To me, this makes total sense as I hate covering a large surface area with blusher which looks totally wrong for my face shape. I've tried this brush and it works great for me although I am very tempted to use it for bronzer!







The Blusher Duo.

There are 3 different blush duo's and this one is 'duo 1' which includes 'Lover' & 'Hussy'.

The swatches are true to colour and perfect for Spring/Summer. I have owned 'Lover' before and it's such a wearable shade! Both shades are extremely pigmented and have a matte finish.



Here are some swatches of the other duos... I love the paler cooler pinks on the right.



The Nail Polishes.

The polishes are just amazing. I love them all and can't really pick a favourite. 

The matte speckle finish nail polishes are inspired by the fragility, colour and speckled beauty of a birds egg. 



'Speckle'


Taupe 'Freckle', Blue 'Fragile', Green 'Mottle', Pink 'Scarce' & Lilac 'Speckle'.

Mini egg nails here I come!


Immodest Lipstick.

This shade just screams at you, it's a perfect blend of pink and coral with a matte finish. 


It's extremely pigmented but be can be dabbed on for a muted look. However, be warned it needs a lip balm as it can be drying due to the matte texture.

 

The collection launches on 31st of January. Find out more HERE.

What are your thoughts on the 'I'mperfection' collection?

I cannot wait to try out the new blusher brush! You are right though, I think it would work well with bronzer too.

Also loving the speckled nail polish, I always love hearing about new nail effects :)
