Illamasqua haul

Last Friday Illamasqua hit 50k twitter followers and as a thank you they (for a total of about 6 hrs) gave 50% off everything purchased on their site.  Before then I'd never actually bought anything from Illamasqua - I'd had the precision ink liners in a goody bag, but that's all I'd tried of theirs, so I took this opportunity with open arms and made a purchase :)  Here's what I got:








The best part of £100 worth of stuff (was actually about £88 or something) for about £44 and free postage.  It took about 5 days to come which is amazing considering how busy they would have been!

I haven't worn the lipstick yet, but I've used most of everything else :)  The blusher is beautiful, very pigmented and soft, you really don't need to move your brush over it much, if you do, you'll pick up too much :)  Out of the eyeshadow quad I've worn the brown shade (bottom left), now my camera hasn't picked it up properly but it has a green shimmer running through it which is super pretty!  When it's on your lid you don't noticed it first off but you can see it looks a bit different, very pretty :D

Then we come to the mascara, ermergherd, this is stunning!  It's not what I'd typically go for but it was recommended to me by a girl at work.  The brush is really thick and fluffy (not what I'd usually buy) and the formula is quite thick (not what I'm used to!) but it coats the lashes beautifully giving really stunning lashes :)  I'll be doing a full review in the next couple of weeks so keep your eye lashes peeled :P

What's your favourite Illamasqua products?

  10. I'm gutted I missed this offer - how did that happen - was probably engrossed in some domestic chore or other! I love the Illamasqua Blush - - have one in Create (I think the colour has been discontinued now and is more of a contour shade) the texture is lovely and as you say you only need a tiny bit - definitely want another shade. Looking forward to your review of the mascara! xx
