Yesterday at Illamasqua

Yesterday I popped into Illamaqua’s flagship store on Beak Street (near Carnaby Street) for a catch up with the lovely Illamasqua girls and also to see what new products they had out.
Back in March I blogged about the most recent Illamasqua collection, Human Fundamentalist which is still going strong. Its a collection made up of a diverse palette of colours which are designed not for you but instead for your alter ego. When I first saw the collection there were so many beautiful products and all the imagery is simply stunning!

However to make the collection even better Illamasqua has added a second installment of products by adding four new eyeshadows and two new
lipsticks. All four eyeshadows are very bold but still colours you could incorporated in an everyday look. Inception is the violet shades, it is also in the Fundamental Palette from this collection, as is hype the bold yellow shade. The other two colours are Vapour which is a tangerine orange and Fledging a vivid matte green.

What caught my eye the most was the two new lipstick as they are both very wearable and pretty shades. Liable is a orange red matte shade which seems to be very popular amongst the Illamasqua team, the other shade is Eurydice a bright fushia matte lipstick, this completely my sort of colour! The great think about Illamasqua too is that you know you will get the pigment you expect from a lipstick, the makeup artist also said that the new lipstick look beautiful mixed together.

Apart from the new products I am very excited to tell you about Illamasqua’s Beauty School Drop-in. As I am sure many of you know Illamasqua offers make-up lessons for a fee however on Sunday 13th May and Saturday 2nd June they will be offering 15minute make-up classes free of charge. You don’t have to book you simply have to drop-in to their Beak Street Flagship store.

Sadly I am not able to attend this weekends one but I will hopefully be able to attend the next one, in particular the ‘Flawless Skin Defined Brows’- actually I would happily attend them all! You will also be able to get 10% off on the day if you book any Make-up art School course. For more information click here.

They are also launching 7 new Skin Base shades on the 17th May so for those of you that couldn’t quite find the right match hopefully you will now!Adding the new shades will also make it one of the widest foundation ranges on the market! (Competition here)

On the way home I was thinking about Illamasqua and sometime I get confused by all the bright colours and start believing that it is a company mainly for makeup artists however saying that I have never tried a product from Illamasqua that I don’t love for my own personal use. Their liquid eyeliner is possibly my favourite ever and if I could own an entire nail polish collection it would probably be the Illamasqua one as they just get every colour spot on and there isn’t a single one I would wear! Oh, and I nearly forgot their cream blush in Sob is possibly my most worn ever- these are some big statements for me.

What do you think of Illamasqua and what is your favourite product of theirs?
I also got a few new product which  I will share soon!
Hope you’re all enjoying the sun X

    So pretty! The pictures look amazing with all of the bright and fun colors. I haven't tried any Illamasqua products, but I always enjoy playing around with them at Sephora. That's really cool about the free classes!

    I haven't tried Illamasqua yet, but I'm IN LOVE with this brand. The thing is that here, in Spain, it is too expensive 🙁 We have ASOS but they don't offer all the products. So, yeah..

    xx : )

    Liable is a shade most preferred by the Illamasqua team. I'm going to take that favored issue under my curiosity antennae.
