Long time no blogging! I wanted to do a little update. I haven't put up a post for a while now.
I've been wanting to put up some post and have been planning it but I have had computer problems and an written exam report to pass in so there haven't been time to enjoy blogging - excuses, excuses excuses.
But as you say if you don't enjoy blogging the posts will not end up good. ;)
I'm back now with my very FIRST Illamasqua haul.
NAIL VANISH IN SPECKLE £14.50 (-50% £37.25) DDK 127 / 63: Love, love, LOVE this varnish. I've been wanting it ever since the launch this Easter, I believe. It's a beautiful Lilac colour with some glitter and black speckles. It's different to any other varnishes I own. I've tried it once and applied it with 2 coats .. Perfect. The only downfall is trying to remove it - it is SO difficult. But I think it's the same for every varnishes that contains glitter, speckles and so on.
CREAM BLUSHER IN DIXIE £18 (-50% £9) DDK 157 / 78: Now, I said I'd been looking at a cream blusher for a while but I didn't have a specific colour in mind. All I knew was that I wanted a cream blusher. I don't know why I picked this colour, there was just something about it. It's just beautiful and surprisingly very natural on my cheeks. I need more cream blushers in my life, they give a nice natural dewy finish, which I like.
PURE PIGMENT IN FURORE £16.50 (-50% £8.25) DDK 145 / 72: This was one of the recommendations from the Illamasqua team. It's a beautiful metallic light brownish colour which can be used as eyeshadow but also as a high lighter. I've used this product the most out of all of them because it's so wearable. I'm thinking of buying a darker colour for a smokey look.
GLEAM IN AURORA £18 (-50% £9) DDK 157 / 78: This is a cream high lighter. I usually use my e.l.f. bronzer as a high lighter but wanted to try a cream to get that more natural dewy look. Can't wait to use it for a glowy summer look.
This was my little purchase from Illamasqua #twitter50 sale. I think I'm going to love every single one of the products. Also, I love the packaging from this brand. It's just so feminine, pretty and different from other brands.
Let me know what you think of Illamasqua products and if you own anything I just have to have! As mentioned earlier please link your post if you did any purchases from Illamasqua :)
Have a beautiful day or night depending on where you're from ;)
Thanks for reading
