Illamasqua, I Adore You

I am the proud owner of two magnificent new Illamasqua products.  Well, new to me anyway because I've never used this line before.  However, there's a really really really good explanation for it.....

We don't carry the product line here in Vancouver.  Now, correct me if I'm wrong (but I like to think I'm not) but I've never seen it in any store in the Lower Mainland.  Them while shopping with my friend, Rheanna, in the States the other day, we discovered it in the downtown Seattle location and nearly had a heart attack.  (I think we both screamed a little bit...)  We spent a good 25 minutes trying on everything and I settled on two items: the Powder Blusher in Hussy and the Lipstick in Over.

I have been drawn to Illamasqua for quite some time for many different reasons.  First, I love what they campaign: The brand believes in the right to express yourself through the way you look and also the right to experiment.  (How can you not like that right?)  Second, the entire product line is extremely pigmented and so worth the money.  Not only do the products last a long time but they look dynamite on.

The blushes are, by far, some of the nicest colors I've ever seen.  I was originally carrying around about four different colors (since I couldn't make up my mind) and finally settled on this gorgeous shade: Hussy.  It's this really bright pink tone that's perfectly matte.  (which is a big change for me since I usually like shimmery tones.)  I just think this shade is perfect for me.  The lipstick is called Over and it's this really bright pinky orange color that actually makes me look tanned!  I love it.

Look how gorgeous and rich the lipstick is?  Sigh, I love it.

And look at the blush?  Beautiful right?  Plus, I barely put my finger into the blush and the swatch turned out extremely pigmented.

I can not wait to do a FOTD with my new goodies.  I should also mention that the blush is $24 (USD) and the lipstick is $22 (USD) and these products are definitely worth the money!

Have you tried Illamasqua before?  What are your favorites?



  1. I never tried Illamasqua, but seriously this shade is so pretty! >.<

  4. Wow! These products look nice. I have never used this brand before, but I will keep a lookout in the future! Also, thanks for your sweet comment about my cat. Sorry to hear about yours as well. It's always so hard.


Thanks for the love!...XO Christina
