Before starting this blog I had never even heard of Illamasqua. I now have a small collection of products that with the sale, I’ve been able to expand for a very affordable price. Much of their sale has now gone but there is still a very varied selection from eye liners to blushers left. I thought I would try out their cream foundation and cream concealer, with a medium to heavy coverage it sounded perfect for me. As well as this I’ve had my eye on the white liquid eye liner, Scribe, for a while now as I’ve got a few looks I’ve wanted it for. Along with a white pencil eyeliner, Elate, that I’ve had before and couldn’t say no to a discounted one.
I find the packaging at Illamasqua unbelievably beautiful, and with the compact mirrors, very handy. The Cream Foundation was £5 and a very good coverage, even though I have oily skin I did find it very drying and hard to blend so I’m really glad I didn’t pay full price. I found the same with the concealer which was also only £5, although I think if the mixture was warmed up more it’d be a little easier. I got them both in the lightest colours and the concealer is basically white, meaning it makes a fantastic highlighter.
I’ve seen Scribe on different Make up Artist’s creations for months now and decided I needed it in my life, finally I can get going on designs that I’ve kept stored away. It’s a wonderful creation with a brilliant applicator and for £7.50 I’m incredibly happy with it. Finally the white pencil, Elate for £5, perfect to highlight the brow bone, waterline, Cupid’s bow and tear duct. I’ve found the Illamasqua pencils to have a creamy consistency which is perfect for blending.
