All the goodies here were bought during sales, 20% or 25% off at different times and I wanted to receive everything before doing a collective haul entry.
So what do we have?
Bronzer in Writhe (golden tan)
"Shape, define, tempt and tease. Illamasqua Bronzer contains crushed pearl powder, for a smooth, even finish that leaves skin begging to be caressed. Apply to face and body for a beautiful bronzed glow that will last until dawn."
This was on sale at 30% off in the Summer Shop. Very very fine powder and super glowy.
Another 3 blushes for my collection!
Thrust - Deep Magenta Pink
Nymph - Warm Candy Pink
Panic - Deep Cherry Red
The first pic is closer to how it looks like in real. The second pic brings out the "cherry" tone of the colour.
Liquid Metal in Enrapture (Molten Bronze), also 30% in the Summer Shop
This is just one swipe of Panic! It's so bloody intense and pigmented.
And a little comparison between Illamasqua Panic and nars Exhibit A, both reddish matte blushes.
They don't look the same at all. Panic has more pink in it and Exhibit A has more orange, even though the latter is officially described as a Brilliant Red.
Again, only one swipe of Panic and like 3 swipes of Exhibit A.
Toxic duo box. Love the illustrations.
Woohoo! My first Illamasqua nail polishes!! Exciting for me cos I've always wanted to try them out but always found them a tad bit expensive (U.P: £13.50 each). I finally decided to take the plunge and go for the Toxic Duo in Radium & Stagnate during a 20% sale and it came down to £16.80 after discount. Force was on sale at 30% in the Summer Shop.
Force - Deep Electric Blue
Looks darker in real, almost a blurple. Couldn't pick up the colour with my camera. This could be a one coater if you like to apply your polish thick. If you apply a second coat, be careful of uneven layers because it has a tendency to settle fast as the formula is quite thick.
Radium - Acidic lime, shimmer finish
Applied a bit streaky, but a second or third coat will cover the streaks and bald spots. I have nothing like this in my collection and I think it will attract a lot of attention if I wear this to work because it is so bright.
Stagnate - Grey Mauve
Lovely application, had no problem at all and once again, could be a one coater if you apply thickly, but two coats will bring out the intensity and depth of the colour.
Hope you liked the swatches! :)
