The new collection for Autumn/Winter from Illamasqua is 'Theatre of the Nameless', I have tried 3 products and I'm impressed but, one in particular is a standout for me personally.
The collection has a good variety and a lot of things look tempting (too tempting) and wearable apart from the lipstick. I find that sometimes Illamasqua as a brand ignores the 'everyday wearable look' which is great for them as it makes them what they are, but I think it's great that this collection has something for everyone.
The standout product for me is the precision ink in 'Havoc'.
Now, I have tried the precision ink before in 2 different shades in the past and was very unimpressed, it didn't dry quick enough and the texture was just wrong. However, now I think they must have reformulated it or I just had dodgy ones because 'Havoc' is purely amazing. I have worn it everyday for the past 3 days and absolutely LOVE it.
'Havoc' is a deep aubergine shade that almost looks black/brown. It's not as harsh as black and looks great for daytime. It applies smoothly, dries quickly and does NOT smudge or budge all day. Here's how I wore it today...
Mac 'Brule' e/s over the lid, 'Satin Taupe' lightly in the crease, Illamasqua 'Havoc' precision eyeliner on the top lash line and Max Factor false lash effect fusion mascara (I hate this mascara btw).
I will be taking 'Havoc' with me in my hospital bag to jazz me up! :)
The other 2 products I have tried are the cream pigment in 'Androgen' which is a warm pale peachy shade that looks perfect on the lips or as blusher, the powder pigment in 'Zeitgeist' is a black with silver sparkles that's great for creating a smokey eye.
Are you loving anything from this collection?
