I wanted to play with bright and crazy colors today. The only good quality bright colored eyeshadows in my make-up collection are by Illamasqua and Inglot. And I only own two powder eyeshadows by Illamasqua. My first was the gorgeous matte red called Daemon (red eyeshadow in the second photo below) and the second one I bought while I was in the States. It’s a gorgeous matte deep royal blue shade called Sadist (shown in the photo below). Both eyeshadows are amazingly pigmented and a dream to apply. And the names are just insane.
I haven’t tried Sadist until today. I’ve waited for a special occasion or for a special inspiration. Today an inspiration hit me and Sadistic Daemon was born.
To create the look I’ve used several Inglot’s eyeshadows and the above mentioned Illamasqua’s eyeshadows. The fake eyelashes are by Inglot. The rhinestones are by Catrice (from one of their previous LE). On my lips I used OCC Lip Tar in Harlot and Illamasqua’s lipstick in Sangers.
As mentioned before I love both eyeshadows by Illamasqua. The colors are intense and the application is easy. The only downside that I’ve experienced with them today was, that the colors faded quite quickly on the eyelids. I don’t know if that’s due to the eyeshadow base that I’ve used (NYX jumbo pencil in Cottage Cheese) or is that a common problem with Illamasqua’s eyeshadows. I haven’t noticed that before, but I really don’t use their eyeshadows on a daily basis. Mainly because I only have two and both are quite unusual colors. Did anyone else experience the same problem with Illamasqua’s eyeshdows?
Let me know in the comments what do you think about my today’s sort of artistic (I’m in no way an artist nor I think I am ) make-up!
