Illamasqua Nail Varnish in Facet

Illamasqua Nail Varnish in Facet

Happy autumn equinox! Today is the first official day of fall, which I am kind of happy about and also kind of dreading. This time of year can be sketchy for me because my moods can drastically change with the sun not being around so much. I made it through just fine last fall though, so hopefully this fall will be a breeze. :)

Illamasqua Once…for Autumn 2014

Illamasqua Once...

The Illamasqua Once…collection for autumn 2014 is best explained by Illamasqua themselves – “The beauty of old and new endures with Once. Decadent & lavish, dabble with rich textures and autumnal, delicate colors, which are conveyed in this exquisite & harmonious fall collection.”

“Once is the beauty of the burnished, eroded and erudite. A palette inspired by the gentle and exquisite point when a flower starts to fade and becomes impossibly beautiful in its complex decline. Combined with the subtle opulence of faded gilt layers that reveal themselves the more you blend and search. She is an incandescent moment, a poem alive and a light within a pallet of decaying decadence.” Alex Box, Creative Director for Illamasqua.

I love their descriptions and I also love the gorgeous imagery for this collection, which I have included in this review. I can’t think of another brand who’s imagery is more beautiful for each of their collections.

Illamasqua Fatale Palette Swatches and Review

Illamasqua Fatale Palette

The Illamasqua Fatale Palette is the latest colorful Eye Shadow Palette in their line of gorgeous colors.

Fatale’s eyeshadows have a water resistant formula that helps with a silky texture. They appear to be powdery but they feel more like a cream. They contain spherical fine particle silicone, which helps with the ease of the application and how long they last.

This palette features two neutral brown shades and two shades to add a pop of color. All four are very soft and very nicely pigmented. Of course they come wrapped in a gorgeous shiny black compact with a large mirror inside.

Illamasqua Glamore Collection for Spring 2014

Illamasqua Glamore Collection for Spring 2014

Welcome to the bold look of the Illamasqua Glamore collection for spring 2014.

Glamore features three new Shattered Star Nail Varnish shades and three new Satin Finish Lipsticks. The collection is all about bright, intense shades and textures. For those who love pinks and oranges, this is the collection for you!

Shattered Nail Varnish is a new finish for Illamasqua. Basically it’s super shimmery but also has multidimensional glitter pieces within it. All three of the shades covered beautifully in two coats.

Satin Finish Lipsticks are also new. These have a lot more moisture than their other lipsticks, and are more comfortable to wear and creamier. They have a slight sheen and they are incredibly pigmented.
