I will talk a bit about some products i have purchased the last time i went shopping at Illamasqua which was about 2 months or more i am not sure, i have posted before about the brushes and lipstick and how good they are.
Illamasqua have launched more shades to the Skin Base foundation line, if you are familiar with the foundations you might experience this problem while choosing the right color, most of the time you wont find your exact shade, its either too yellow, or too pink, sometimes you will need to mix two shades to get the proper one. I even had this problem before, i couldnt find my exact shade so i went to the closest which is #9 but i think it is a bit yellow to my skintone. Illamasqua were aware of this problem and they launched extra colors to the line, colors that are mostly less yellow and less pink, so i went for #8.5 which is perfect for me.
As most people know, or hear, Illamasqua make the best blushes, they are very pigmented so you always have to make sure to apply as minimum as possible and build up the color if you need more. This time i picked Unrequited which is a blue based barbie pink, and Naked Rose which is a dusty rose. Both blushes are great and i love them both, i like using them with Illamasqua’s angled brush for application.
The eyeshadow collection is pretty basic, i have used creamy eyeshadows and loose pigments so this time i went for powder eyeshadows, i have chosen two highlighting colors, the pearly white is called Moonflower which i mostly use under the brow bone, the other champagne color which is my favorite is called Slink, this is such a beautiful color to be used under the brow bone, on the tear duct and also as a cheek bone highlighter. This color is so versatile and i am loving it.
In addition to those products, i have purchased a mascara, i believe it is the only one by Illamasqua and it is called Raven, i have posted about it before on my Instagram saying that it is my current favorite (in addition to Doll Eyes by Lancome). The mascara is super black, it volumizes and thickens the lashes in just one coat, the formula is a bit heavier than usual mascaras which i really like, and this will make it clump a bit, so make sure to apply it carefuly, not too many coats and/or brush your lashes with a clean spooley brush afterwards to get rid of the clumps.
Finally, i have also purchased an eyelash curler, i’ve been using it ever since i bought it and it is amazing. I have been using one by Shu Uemura which was amazing then i switched to MAC which was OK but it didnt give me great results like the Shu Uemura did, so this one by Illamasqua gave me almost the same curling results as the Shu Uemura one.
i have the same problem with foundation colour thats why i always take the light colour and mix with darker face powder to have a good result ! also because of that i dont use foundations alot ….
