Illamasqua Haul!

Hi Guys,

I feel like this post should start with, Hello my name is Eloise and I'm an Illamasqua Addict... If you follow me on twitter and or Instagram you may of noticed that I might of made a tiny bit of an Illamasqua order, then another... then another... Which is probably no surprise if you've seen my constant tweets about them! 


Okay before I go and talk myself into making another order, The Valentines Collection, I'm the One is being added to the list... Here's what I picked up in the January Sale! 

Which by the way, is always amazing and is highly recommended! Actually all Illamasqua sales are!


Pure Pigments In Static, Furore and Ore - £16.50 HERE

I picked these up in the sale for £5 to £7.50 which is an amazing saving that I convinced myself I couldn't say no to... I already have the pigment in Beguile, love it! 

So I decided to pick these three up, Furore is a peachy champagne shade, a very popular one too. I'ts a beautiful everyday shimmery colour, then Ore is more of the darker rich brown shimmery brother, which is beautiful as a brown smokey eye! Finally there is Static, its similar to beguile but has more of a pink shimmer through it, I posted about this quite a while back when I had an Illamasqua Makeover, it turned the brown shadow underneath purple! You can see it HERE.


Sheer Lipgloss in Culminate - £14.50 HERE
I was so excited when Illamasqua announced their Creator Collection was designed by bloggers, I was even more excited to see this lipgloss which I was about to order was down to £7.50, so of course it went straight into the basket! Its designed by Milly at Pearls and Poodles, who's blog I've read for years, Its lovely to see Illamasqua do this as they have such a great connection with bloggers. 

Anyway onto the actual lipgloss! It might look a bit scary in the tube but it comes out as a lovely sheer copper peachy shade, which has a duo chrome effect to it, its a lovely sparkly wearable shade and they taste so good!


Nail Varnish in Load - £14.50 HERE
I really like Illamasqua Nail Varnishes and to get them for £5 in the sale I had to get one, most of the shades are similar to ones I already have, with a collection like mine it doesn't surprise me, I have way too many! This one though is rather different its a pale cream shade that I think will be lovely for Spring. The bad news though.. its been discontinued! But you can still get it at Debenhams, YAY!

Powder Blusher in Hussy - £18.00 HERE
I was really undecided about getting this, as in the pan it is rather bright and rather scary, Seeing as I'm not a big blush wearer and its down to Illamasqua that I started to wear it, I really wanted to pick up another. So after swatching at my local counter and I picked up Hussy in the sale for £7.50! Its a bright pink candy shade, which when blended out is really wearable and a lot less scary!

Ive already started planning my next Illamasqua order, I think I'm obsessed but they are definitely worth every penny!

  1. Ah, I wish I had bought more in the sale now! I'd never tried anything from there, so only got a few bits to experiment. I got a cream blush, and it is amazing, so I am dying to try more - the blush you got looks beautiful. I am also kicking myself for not getting a pigment - they look amazing! I really enjoyed this post, I definitely want to get more into Illamasqua! x

  6. I'd love to try out some more Illamasqua products but since we don't have it in Ireland it's much harder to get a hold of. I do have the Cream Pigment in Hollow however, which I love to use for contouring! It's amazing for pale skin :) x
