Illamasqua Once collection review

Illamasqua Once Vintage Metallix eyeshadows

First time I saw Illamasqua Once collection, Vintage Metallix eyeshadows immediately caught my eye. They looked pretty, but I was not prepared for the reality of these cream eyeshadows. First of all – the texture. It’s some kind of hybrid between cream, gel and mousse. Not really something I would enjoy dipping my hands into. As weird as it may ...

Illamasqua Glamore Naked and Starkers lipstick swatches

Illamasqua Nude and Starkers lipsticks

Lot’s of time people ask me, how come I love Illamasqua’s lipstick so much when they’re so dry and matte.

They’re ...

Illamasqua Matte Effect for summer 2014 review

Illamasqua Matte Effect summer 2014 collection

I was surprised to see Matte Effect collection from Illamasqua for summer 2014, but as I’m matte finish lover it was pleasant surprise. As Illamasqua Matte Lip Liquids are new product I had to test those out first. My first try was clownish at best. I knew I had to be doing something wrong so I persisted until I got ...

Wow – I fell for sand finish nail polishes and lipsticks that are not matte? I guess Illamasqua’s Glamore colllection is special.  Let’s start with the nail polishes. I don’t think Illamasqua labeled these as liquid/crystal sand finish nail polishes, but they look exactly like those to me. Gritty surface, quick to dry and full of yummy glitter. And the ...

Illamasqua The Sacred Hour package

It’s always a joy to open one of imaginative Illamasqua packages – straw, amethyst like stones and lavender (OK – I didn’t like the smell of lavender, but it did look nice ). And then you get to the good stuff – cosmetic items. This time I played with Hemlock, Shard and Peaked from Illamasqua The Sacred Hour collection. Lipstick ...

Illamasqua Imperfection: Immodest + Lover&Hussy

Illamasqua Imperfections

If I had to chose one group of Illamasqua products that I love and recommend, then lipsticks would win hands down. They’re long lasting, not actively drying, pigmented … But from the 2 items from Illamasqua Imperfection (or I’m Perfection) I have to give first prize to Lover&Hussy duo blusher. Illamasqua powder duo blusher is composed of two matte shades ...
