I remember when Ilamasqua just launched in November 2008 (Makeup4all actually launched 3 months later, so I covered all their collections) – it was something different and unique, something edgy, alternative, and opposite the mainstream, so to speak. Their collections like Dystopia and Theatre Of Nameless were so unlike anything else with the gorgeous looks from Alex Box and unreal shades of the products.
To be honest, I wasn’t a big of the latest releases such as Glamore and similar ones, as for me it wasn’t the Illamasqua I loved. This is why it is very nice to see how they are back to their roots with this new To Be Alive Collection.
Striking visuals with fierce makeup and stunning model. The products in the collections are well-edited and unique:
Spirit Palette, £34
- Powder Eye Shadows in Cascade (ultraviolet light), Inspire (rich true blue) and Refine (intense midnight blue)
- Shimmer Cream Eye Shadow in Awaken (delicate ice blue).
Glamore Lipstick, £18.50
- Vendetta, rich cobalt, satin finish.
Shine Lipgloss, £16.50
- Iridesce, ice clear
Nail Varnish, £14.50
- Prismatic, optical opalescent
