Illamasqua’s Spring/Summer collection is called Toxic Nature, and again it’s the source of huuuge inspiration for me.
Looks aren’t exactly pretty (at least not in the way we understand pretty), but still the colors, ideas etc inspire me a lot.
So, how about the collection itself? The products?
In this collection Illamasqua releases completely new product,
Available in six shades there’s quite a lot to play with. They can be used as shadow, blush, lipcolor, countouring, concealing….
I got four shades;
- Dab and
Mould is stunning dark (kinda warm) brownish purple/plum. It’s extremely opaque, and works great as a base for darker eyeshadow look, as well as true dark lipcolor.
Delirium is really neutral shade, real multi-use product. You can also create quite cool eye makeup with this one!
So true. My favourite of these! This really is great color for 60′s look, both on lips and eyes. This is extremely opaque as well, little amount is enough for a lot!
I’m pale, so if I learn to use creamy contouring, I just might find this useful. I haven’t really tried this yet, so I don’t yet have an opinion on this
Sheer lipgloss Torture:
ORANGE is the word for this one in tube.
Since this is a sheer lipgloss, not intense (which I love), it’s not that orange on lips:
How ever, I love the texture. Usually lipglosses tend to be sticly, but I haven’t got any problems with Illamasqua’s lipglosses.
If torture was ORANGE on tube this one is orange everywhere. It’s so orange, that it’s almost wrong NOT to write ‘orange’ in caps
This has a bit the same problem as the other Illamasqua lipsticks, it’s a bit dry. But it blends well, is opaque and in this case hothothothot ORANGE!
If you’re planning to take just one of them, STOP RIGHT NOW.
You need BOTH.
Mix them together, and you’ll start fires with your lips!
Purity Nail Varnish:
My husband said that my hand looked like corpse’s hand when I wore this I don’t don’t think that this really works that well in my pale fingers, but I would assume this is great for darker skintones.
