Having watched and heard various bloggers over the years raving about Illamaqua beauty I thought I would only ever dream about owning my own items from their collection. I don’t really like buying beauty products online purely for the fact that you never really know what the true shade of something is until you see it in person and also I love buying a new beauty product in the shop and that feeling of searching for the perfect shade and then you get it and its in the bag and your leaving the shop with a bag full of gold basically, thats how everyone feels right?
Anyway, Illamasqua, I have recently found a shop and purchased my first few items (excited squeal) and they are as dreamy as imagined.
I got myself a couple of nail varnishes, I figures can be used lots of times and when people say ‘ohh I like you colour’ I can then be like ‘Oh thanks its by Illamasqua’ bragging purposes intended. The first shade I purchased was a Gold shade ‘Spartan’ I thought this would be perfect for the winter and christmas months. I will definitely be rocking this for a few seasonal parties!
The second shade was called ‘Serenity’ this is more of a light blue shade which I thought would be perfect for the summer months, I thought this was smart to pick two colours for all year round right? Points to me. I love this colour I feel like this would look A-Mazing with a tan in the summer or while on holiday.
I then got myself a lipstick, this purely is for the winter as it is a dark plumb/brown shade. When I saw this I think my mouth literally dropped as it was perfect for me. You know when you have been searching for a colour and its just not happening and you can’t find it and your about to give up then BAM found it (again, excited squeal). This lipstick is incredible. I tested the colour on my hand which is a shade called ‘Growl’, just a small line, which turned out to be a week long item to my hand I mean this lipstick has staying power! Through a bath and a shower this stuff doesnt want to budge which is great! I work in an office and I really don’t want to be applying lipstick all the time to keep up my look so this is a massive bonus for me. It has a matte finish but is really smooth to the lip. I would recommend these product for sure!
