I was happy to get this information several days ago and I hope to find out more details about the new collection The Body Electrics soon!
Today Illamasqua launches the new contest “2010’s hottest new nail colour is in your hands!”
Whether it’s the standout shade of your favourite killer heels, your must-have cupcake frosting or the glow of the city skyline, Illamasqua want to hear what inspires your soul.
The UK’s hottest and most talked about make-up brand, Illamasqua is famed for its unique and daringly different collection of cult Nail Varnish colours. And now they want YOU to get creative. Illamasqua is asking finger fetishists the world over to submit a description of their dream nail varnish colour, for their chance to make it a reality.
Run in conjunction with luxury retailer, Selfridges, this incredible competition is giving nail varnish fans the world over the opportunity to push their imaginative boundaries further than ever before and design their very own perfect shade. Entrants must explain in no more than 50 words what inspired their unique choice, and provide an image or photograph to illustrate their big idea.
The prize? Two winners will see their dream colour created and sold exclusively at Illamasqua.com and Selfridges in London, Manchester Trafford and Birmingham from October 2010. In addition, they’ll receive a bottle of their winning colour before anybody else!
The winning entries will be selected by a high-profile judging panel consisting of legendary make-up artist Alex Box, nail artist to the stars Sophy Robson and YouTube sensations Pixiwoo.

I always like to read posts where people tell about the source of their inspiration. Last month I wrote about Catherine Deneuve in Belle de Jour and this month I want to post some photos of Emily Blunt. If you follow me on twitter you’ve probably noticed the new background. And yes, that is Emily from Vanity Fair magazine. I have to say that I absolutely adore her! She is so beautiful, elegant and always looks perfect! I have a lot of photos of her so it was hard for me to chose only some of them.
Emily Olivia Leah Blunt (born 23 February 1983) is an English actress known for her work in My Summer of Love, The Young Victoria and The Devil Wears Prada. She won the 2007 Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Series, Miniseries or Television Film for the BBC TV film Gideon’s Daughter. Blunt stars alongside notable actors such as Anthony Hopkins and Benicio del Toro in The Wolfman. Read more here

More Illamasqua reviews! This time it is lipstick! I am sure that now you all know that coral is the hottest colours this season. I already made a lip swatch of one of my favourite coral lipsticks and you can check it out here. That shade is a coral with orange tones and if you are looking for coral with pink tones – Illamasqua’s Over is a perfect shade for you to get!
So what is written about the liptick at the website?
Let your lips speak volumes. Indulge in colour-intense lipstick with a highly pigmented formula, available in a choice of flawless finishes, from matt to glossy. Illamasqua Lipstick glides on smoothly, for the perfect all-night pout.
Over is a bright coral pink with matt finish
And this is how the lipstick looks like on the light skin

Lately everyone is talking about Ellis Faas so I wanted to check out this brand myself. And… I was really amazed by what I’ve found out. This is something that I’ve never seen before, it looks so futuristic and yet so easy to use. So what is so special about this brand and what makes it so unique? The fact that every products comes in a liquid form and is in a chic silver tube which goes into a silver holder. Sounds unbelievable, right? So here is the photo so you can all see what I am talking about.
Who is Ellis Faas you may ask. And I’ve got the answer for your question!
Vogue Paris cited Ellis Faas as “one of the most influential make-up artists of her time”. And indeed, she has worked with the world’s most pre-eminent fashion designers, photographers, stylists, hairdressers and models. Ellis’ work has been published on the covers of the world’s best-known fashion magazines. Additionally, Ellis has worked for make-up brands, such as Clinique, Lancôme and MAC Cosmetics – and she was asked by L’Oréal to create a make-up line for their skin care brand, Biotherm. After the contract with L’Oréal ended in 2007, the way was paved for her to create her own brand: ELLIS FAAS. This will launch early 2009. You can read more here

I absolutely loved the Doliva Hand Cream and Lip Balm (you can read my review here) so I really wanted to try some of their products for face. I have a very dry and sensitive skin so this is what I’ve picked for myself:
Doliva Intensive Cream for very dry and sensitive skin, $12
Doliva olive face cream contains not only extra virgin olive oil, but also other precious oils – avocado, corn and almond; this effective combination is enriched with a fresh lemon scent. The cream is suitable for dry and sensitive skin, it greases it gently and thoroughly and provides it with natural moisture. It absorbs easily and does not leave a greasy film. Use: gently spread on the skin of your face, neck and décolletage morning and evening after washing. Suitable also as a base for make-up.
Doliva Cleansing Milk, $13
Doliva Cleansing Milk Provides pore-deep cleansing and gentle skin care. This gentle cleansing removes make-up mildly.
Use: Gently rub this cleanser into the skin twice a day and rinse with water.
So what do I think about the productsRead More
