Illamasqua Hydra Veil Rehydrating Gel ($40) is kinda my new go to primer of choice! Maybe it’s the jelly texture, maybe it’s the slick little pot it comes in, maybe it’s just because I can use all the moisture I can get but Illamasqua Hydra Veil Rehydrating Gel is all awesomeness.
Make Up For Ever HD Elixir was running a little low recently so I went to Sephora to grab some and decided, wait, I need to try the new Illamasqua Hydra Veil Rehydrating Gel! So my $40 went happily towards it and I’m every so happy I indulged.
I love this stuff.
Mind you I still love HD Elixir too but this stuff is pretty awesome!
Getting my freak on today courtesy Illamasqua Freak Eau de Parfum ($90).
As Illamasqua is known for their bold take on makeup, I expected no less from their fragrance. Honestly, if anything at all, Freak Eau de Parfume sounded positively enchanting and dare I say scary thanks to notes like Frankincense and Myrrh (a little gold and we can relive the birth of Christ).
I expected dark, dank, and overpowering but what I got was a terribly interesting experience to say the least.
With new second skin foundation formulas on the rise, you’ll be seeing a lot more of your favorite brands introducing their version.
Illamasqua Skin Base Foundation is the latest to join the ranks.
Introducing the Illamasqua Human Fundamentalism Collection, where blinding flashes of pigment provide a sharp contrast to neutral tones, creating a saturated palette that catapults your alter ego to new levels of self-expression. Mix contrasting textures to express your true self, spiraling from rich metallic to pale matte shades.
Take a look!
My deepest, darkest fragrance has to be Flowerbomb. That’s about it. I’m a fruity, sweet, candy, foody type of fragrance girl. If it’s sweet, I love it.
I normally avoid fragrances with notes like patchouli, amber, Frankincense, etc..
But I’m a little bit curious about Illamasqua Freak Eau de Parfum.
Freak is a unisex fragrance that promises to be a rich, daringly, provocative new scent to celebrate the night!
Burnt orange bloom as a base is supposedly able to enhance the wearer’s own natural perfume, word.
The notes, ones I’d avoid at all costs typically include Black Davana, Opium Flower, Belladonna, Poison Hemlock, Datura, Queen of the Night blossom, Frankincense, Oud, and Myrrh.
Freak comes bottled up in an art deco inspired bottle, titled to one side in a smoky glass.
Count me curious.

I’m tempted to just order it without smelling it, I like surprises and maybe this one might be a pleasant one?
What do you think?
Are you up for the Freak experience?
