Illamasqua



Hey ladies, and Illamasqua fans!
This is my 3rd review of Illamasqua!
You can check the other two out HERE.





Cream Foundation
BUY IT HERE or HERE
$30 (sephora)
Shade: CF210
Create a base that brings out the bold in you. Illamasqua Cream Foundation works with your skin to cover and enhance. It blends easily, allowing you to vary coverage as much or as little as you need, effortlessly balancing uneven skin tone and giving you the control to create a flawless finish.













This is such a great shade for me, I'm in between an NW20 and NW25 in MAC.
It's neutral (not too yellow, not too pink).
The coverage is fabulous.
You need a great primer with this, FYI.
It can be sheer coverage, medium, or full depending on the brushes you use.
I love using it with MAC's 109!!
It stays on all day!



Powder Foundation
BUY IT HERE or HERE
$30 (sephora)
Shade: PF210
Be the star of your own drama. The mainstay of film and theatre make-up artists, Illamasqua Powder Foundation glides over your skin, covering blemishes, correcting skin tone and leaving a shine-free look that lasts all night. Create a stunningly flawless base that begs to be touched.














This is more like a finishing powder rather than a "powder foundation."
I felt it was a little on the sheer side.
I do like the finish though :)
Again, a great shade for NW20-25.



Sheer Lipgloss
BUY THEM HERE or HERE
$19 (sephora)
Shades: Rouse & Electrify
Super glossy, with a sensual, sheer colour designed to enhance your lips. Use Illamasqua Sheer Lipgloss on its own or with Illamasqua Lipstick for added pout. Add a little more sexiness to your smile.


Top: Rouse- vibrant bubble gum pink
Bottom: Electrify- baby pink sheen
At first they look so similar in the tubes.

Now you can really see the difference between Rouse (left) and Electrify (right).





Lipstick
BUY THEM HERE or HERE
$20 (sephora)
Shades: Sonnet, Liv, & Fable
Let your lips speak volumes. Indulge in colour-intense lipstick with a highly pigmented formula, available in a choice of flawless finishes, from matt to glossy. Illamasqua Lipstick glides on smoothly and never feels dry, for the perfect all-night pout. A must have for professional make-up artists, and those who want to make a statement.





Sonnet
matte pale peachy nude










Liv
matte milky lavender pink











Fable
matte bubble gum pink










4th review coming soon!!

Let me know if there is anything specifically you'd like me to review!

Sonnet is great, I got that in quad form - the other two lippies look divine!

lindah said...

ahhh.. I'm gonna have to pick up one of everything if it releases at sephora :D I'm so excited! ^_^ I'm really interested in the cream foundation.. if my skin were flaky when I wear it, would it make it more noticable or would it just leave it the same? o_O
