Illamasqua Theatre of the Nameless

I always get a little excited to find that Illamasqua is releasing a new collection not only because of the products but also because of all the beautiful imagery that also gets released. Just so you don't miss out I have included some of my favourite images...
 I also have a few products from the collection which I am very impressed with and unlike the imagery that was released with the collection is also very wearable!
 The first product I tried was the Masquara, if you have been following my blog for a while you will I know my favourite eyeliner is the precision eyeliner by Illamasqua. Although I was hoping it would be as great of a product as the eyeliner I am always a little sceptical when buying more expensive mascaras as I find they're not always worth the extra money.
 At first glance this mascara is exactly my cup of tea. It has a standard brush which is quite big and the product is clearly very dark. Once applied the look and drama this mascara gives is fantastic! It is like expected very dark, adds great volume with some length. The only downside I can see is how long it takes to dry, it does take quite a while and I managed to get quite a big around my eye as a consequence.
 The above images were taken with just one coat of mascara, I would say that this mascara is a little clumpy and although I like that it isn't for everyone.
The Belladonna Intense Lipgloss is also a fabulous product, at first it reminded me of Girl About Town Lipstick by MAC and although very similar they aren't exactly the same. Belladonna is a Raspberry pink coloured gloss which applies as quite a thick product and is quite opaque. I would recommend using a lip brush to apply but it is such a lovely colour and one I am sure I will get a lot of use from! I also think that this is quite a good colour for most skin tones.
 The powder blusher in Ambition is the product that I thought I wouldn't use very much as it appears to have quite a lot of shimmer and be slightly darker then the blushers I usually chose. However once applied it really adds a beautiful glow to the skin and the shimmer is barely noticeable. It adds a natural looking flush and since it isn't overly pigmented you can either wear it lightly or build it up to a more intense colour.
Overall I am very impressed with the products I have from this A/W collection and I would really love to try some of the other blushers and lip colours from Illamasqua. Although they are slightly pricier then the high street you do get great quality products which are still affordable in comparison to many high end brands.

Blusher £16.50
Intense Lipgloss £13
Masquara £15

What is your favourite Illamasqua product? Have you tried anything from the new collection?

  12. Normally I don't get excited about these kind of things, I kind of feel like makeup is a personal thing and just because it's on a blog doesn't mean anything, but these, wow, all 3 literally made me sit up. The lip product especially, I've not seen something that floated my boat quite as much in ages :). Lea x
