Illamasqua – Naked Stranger – Intimacy and Zygomatic (review, swatches)
Naked Stranger is the name of the newest collection by Illamasqua. It mostly consists of natural colors – pink-beige and brown. There’s also gold color involved, just to make it more interesting. Here are the products that I’d like to show you.
I have a cream blush kick lately and I have to tell you that it isn’t easy to get a good cream blush. I tried quite a lot of them and most of them are either too greasy or/and not pigmented enough or they are not easy to apply. That’s why I was eager to try the Illamasqua cream blush. Zygomatic is wonderful pink brown color. I love the color! It’s also nicely pigmented and very easy to apply. It looks very natural on the skin. This is now one of my favorite cream blushes (besides my beloved Bobbi Brown one).
The color of Zygomatic immediately reminded me of Illamasqua’s Ambition blush. Ambition is powder blush with gold shimmer, but the base color is very similar to the Zygomantic blush. Ambition blush was one of my favorite natural looking blush so far and now Zygomatic is even better, because it’s cream and it has no shimmer to it.
Sheer lipgloss in Intimacy is another great product. The gloss is sticky like all Illamasqua lipglosses and it’s quite long lasting. I love the lipgloss because the color is (again) wonderful. It looks really natural on my lips. And the shimmer gives it depth. I didn’t know that Illamasqua changed the packaging of (sheer) lipglosses. I didn’t like the old packaging, so I’m very happy that they changed it.
In the next two posts I’ll show you how do the products look like on the face. Until then … Let me know in the comments how do you like the products from the Naked Stranger collection? And which product is your favorite?
