Tag: Illamasqua beauty
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
I always get very excited about the new Illamasqua collections as I know that there will be amazing visuals and a great story behind it.
Here is the new A/W 2011 makeup collection which is called The Theatre Of The Nameless.
I love Illamasqua’s press releases, so I thought I would include what they have to say about this collection. And let me tell you, it is definitely not for the faint-hearted. And, yes, I had to include all the promo photos. These are stunning and provoking, very Illamasqua.
“Descend into the riotous scene of erotic adventure that is THE THEATRE OF THE NAMELESS, nocturnal den of the dissident leaders of underworld subcultures. Exotic dancers rub shoulders with expressionist actors and performers; nudists and Boot Girls openly compete for the Conférencier’s eye; and all participate in the Club’s endless, pleasure-seeking rituals, immersing themselves in a heady world of sensual delight …
Teased by the sweet, pungent tang of opium, the air throbs with the electric shock of lovers’ flesh. Dare to feel the intensity of the club’s intimate caress, and abandon yourself to the glorious wonders of unfettered night-time make-up.”
“Theatre Of The Nameless is a heady mixture of opulent hues, decadent pigments and fearless application. A bruised and burnished pallet that gives a sensual slip that bleeds colour into colour, worn through and kissed off “ Alex Box, Illamasqua Creative Director.
