Tag: Illamasqua swatches
I was asked about my Illamasqua lipsticks several times on Twitter so I thought, why not featuring them all together?
I have four shades and have already written about each in details, so this is more of a round-up.
Before I start, I have to say that I really like the brand’s lipsticks, they give an amazing colour pay-off and stay on really well. Since they have a matte finish, make sure that you take a good care of your lips so that the lipstick doesn’t enhance any dry patches and goes on smoothly.

It is a Powder Blusher Duo (£26) in Katie (Candy Pink) and Ambition (Neutral).
Here is how the duo looks like, I love the sleek package and the big and handy mirror inside.
Illamasqua powder blushers are very pigmented, so you will need a tiny amount of the product. They are also smooth and not chalky, which means that it’s easy to blend the product into the skin.
As for these particular shades – Katie is a light baby pink, it should look awesome on fair skin tones and may look ashy on medium/darker skins. As for Ambition, it is a
Before launching their SS13 makeup collection I’m Perfection, Illamasqua had a fantastic sale with a great selection of products that retailed for £10 and £5!
Of course, I had to pick some items. As you would imagine, most of the products I wanted were out of stock when I was ordering, so I ended up with two products only. But it’s better than nothing at all…
I am a huge fan of the brand’s Pure Pigments and wanted to get all the shades that were in the sale but I was able to get my hands on Zeitgeist only.
And here is Zeitgeist – a true black with silver micro glitter. Looks fantastic on
