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 – orange Lover and soft pink Hussy in a sturdy Illamasqua packaging with large mirror.  Formula is definitively more on the powdery side, but with good pigmentation and when layered also good staying power on my oily skin. I applied both blushes with Real Techniques Blush brush to achieve best look for my blush shy soul that needs blush to look healthy. Each of two look pretty on their own – but combined they make one of gorgeous peachy shade.

Illamasqua Immodest lipstick had all the makings of great quality product, but my lips are still in the recovery stage so I can’t really enjoy in it … jet. Formula is waxy, very pigmented and with very good staying power. Unfortunately is does not work as well with chafed lips as Climax. I’ll have to wait a bit before I’m really able to go out and shock everybody with almost neon pink lips. Not the color I would normally buy, but definitively something for perking me up after a lousy night or day. Thiner swatch shows how pigmented is one swipe and thicker one what you get with two layers of lipstick.
I guess it’s pretty obvious from the first photo that Hussy and Immodest are match made in heaven.

I’m currently in processes of making my WL or better said shopping list for Illamasqua. On the very top I have two products – Gleam in Aurora and cream pigment in Hollow. I would love to try out Skin Base also, but have no clue which shade is the closest to my skintone. Anything else you would recommend?

  1. Oboje je videti izredno privlačno. Ta blush duo je bil na moji WL, a sem v zadnjem času pridno polnila svoj predal z blushi in si dopovedujem, da ne rabim nobenega več. :whistle: Šminke pa tako premalo nosim.

    • Jaz sem zadnje čase bolj na glosih in že prav pogrešam dolgo obstojne šminke. Blush je pa res pravi cortek. :wub:

  2. oh, those are lovely! I have the UV nailpolishes on my wishlist, and some lipsticks. My favorite is “Welt”. I also love their Sealing Gel, it’s amazing (especially if you want to draw an eyeliner-line with pigment)! :wub:

    • Can we still order nail polishes from main site? I removed nail polishes from my WL because of the new postal restrictions and never heard from them if the shipping is now OK or not. :think:

    • Vjerojatno je boja presudna – nema baš puno lijepih narančastih blusheva koji dobro stoje i ne izgledaju baš klovnovsko. :silly:

    • :rose:
      I too like Illamasqua – they rarely let me down. Especially with their lipsticks and nail polishes. :thumb:
