Illamasqua 2 - Makeup For My Alter Ego

You didn't all think I would keep you in suspense for too long now, did you? ;)

First the swatches:
Gorgeous right? ;)

Part 2 of this post:

I love the slogan, makeup for your alter ego. Everyone has a second side to their personality, a yin to their yang. A little bit naughty to their nice, etc. Working in a corporate office I am forced to tone down the makeup to adhere to the corporate environment (read, boring). Sure, neutrals can be pretty; but neutrals aren't fun!

On weekends I am all about color, and drama. I do not shy away from bright, bold, or smoky. I break makeup rules, and make my own. This is why I identify so well with the brand. Illamasqua brings drama and fun to the cosmetic world, and I would like to think that I do too ;)

Used:
Shiseido Hydropower in gold
Illasmasqua Shadows in Yes (lid), Imagine (lid and crease) and Tempt (highlight)
Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream Liner in Matte Blue
Chanel Exceptionnel Mascara
Sharp cheek contour done with Illamasqua's Tweak Blush
On the lips: Solstice liquid metal in center with a combo of Petulant and Lily Rose on the outside
Solstice also appears between top and bottom liners on eyes (inner and outer corners)
I know I look a bit angry in the pics but I was going for fierce. I promise!

So what do you all think? I think Illasmasqua is an amazing line with exceptional products, I am so thrilled to have had the opportunity to finally explore this brand myself, and cannot wait to try even more! There isn't a product I don't like!

Go have another look at the website, and try not to fall in love ;) Remember, Illamasqua does in fact ship to the US now!
