This morning, deep in my sleep I was woken up by the postman =_= although secretly I become excited because it means another package!
It was Illamasqua, I feel extremely lucky to be sent some new products from the Body Electrics range to try out. Illamasqua is a flamboyant makeup brand, encouraging us all to push the boundaries and this collection is no different.
The team behind the brand are extremely nice and thoughtful, unlike many other cosmetic brands, whether its an email or a visit to the counter, the experience is always refreshing.
So onto the goods, Illamasqua being thoughtful again, the goods came in a black sturdy box with a ribbon tie, I opened up to find this...
First up is the metal palette, each liquid metal is amazingly rich and highly pigmented, They can be used on the eyes, face and body. I imagine I will be using these mostly on the eyes, but also sparingly on the lips to create a tonal effect.
Next up is the oil, Im not a big fan of oil, especially in the summer as I hate that sticky icky feeling. My first reaction was GLITTER OVERLOAD!
but when swatched, surprisingly the glitter particles are fairly small and once blended, hardly noticeable. It leaves a really nice glow to the skin with a silky finish. I imagine tan addicts will be all over this but unfortunately Im pale and the bronze tint didn't look too nice on my skin tone. Its a great innovative product but sadly not for me.
Finally is the Nail Varnish
This is Prism, described as Iridescent Blue. It has a really nice pearl quality to it and I managed to slightly catch the flip tone under the sunlight..
