Product Review: I’m in Love with Illamasqua

illmasqua-faceI recently received a goody box filled with all sorts of beauty booty. And I have to say that the Illamasqua products I recieved are beyond awesome.  For those of you who are not familiar with the London-based  line Illamasqua, newly transplanted in Sephora stores, it’s a candyland of color and texture.  For the makeup artist in me, Illamasqua is a dream to work with.  It’s pretty rare that I fall in love with everything I try within a line, but I have NO complaints about Illamasqua.

llamasqua is the product of a heady mix of influences. Its roots stem from the dark and illicit 1920s club scene, and combine a rich heritage in the manufacture of make-up for film and theatre. It also takes inspiration from members of the ‘alternative scenes’ for whom self-expression is paramount. Alternative cultures have always dared to be dramatic. They have an emotional attachment to making up. It’s an expression of their darker side, a release for their alter ego.

Illamasqua is for the bolder person hiding inside all of us. It is an act and an attitude. A symbol of tolerance. A celebration of idiosyncrasies. A confident statement of self-ownership.

Illamasqua Rich Foundation


I had amazing coverage with this foundation.  Only a dot went a very long way and even covered my under eye circles.  With level of coverage, one would expect a heavy feeling and looking foundation.  But nothing could be further from the truth.  This foundation is light as air and the skin looks amazing.

Illamasqua Eye Brow Cake


I received the Eye Brow Cake in Thunder, a dark brown.  I used it on a photo shoot Monday and my client was in love with her brows.  Perfect texture and color!

I also received the Eye Liner Cake in Mislead — pure black.  I used this also on the shoot and it dried quickly, was smudgeproof and I was able to create a dramatically lined eye.  (photos to come!)

Liquid Metal


I had read about Liquid Metal and was very anxious to try it.  It did not disappoint.  It is gorgeous on the skin — melts right in and leaves a luminous gleam.  Love it!




Illamasqua Box Lipstick

I now have my absolute favorite new red lipstick — Illamasqua lipstick in Box.  It’s a deep scarlet red matte, but not at all drying. I love, love, love it.  I’m going to take a picture of myself in it and show you!

Illamasqua get 5 blings!
