illamasque

I’m getting cozy with Illamasqua today so I thought I’d muse some about their nail varnish!

Jump ahead for a peep!

Illamasqua has taken the Beauty Blogging world by storm this year. With many beauty bloggers and junkies alike getting their hands on Illamasqua goodies since it hit our side of the pond and is now available at Sephora is it any wonder we are all very happy?

As Fall rolls in I imagine you may be looking for three shades of cool to get your nails in tiptop shape. My picks for Fall in regards to nails always consists of the same colors. A true red, a beautiful chocolate brown, and a hardcore black.


Illamasque Nail Varnish in Ruthless has me covered for red. This true, rich shade of red has a beautiful glossy finish.

What are your fav shades of Fall from Illamasque?

Any that’ll be topping your nails this season?

Virtual Money for Nothing: Illamasqua Hauling

Illamasqua+Cosmetics

Say the Muse gives you $150 virtual dollars to spend on Illamasqua today. What would you haul?

Jump ahead to hear what I’d blow my virtual moola on!

My hauling would start with concealer. Indeed, some people love eye shadow, some love foundation, some are obsessed with skincare…as for me I’m addicted to finding the perfect concealer.

Count me in for a pot of Illamasqua Concealer although I’m unsure which shade I’d want…this needs a swatch!

Illamasqua+002

$22 bucks down $128 to go!

The Illamasqua Color Blushes I’ve seen so far look lush. Sign me up for Hussy, Tweak, and Beg…but that’s not my final list so don’t quote me there!

Illamasqua+004

Uh oh $59 left…not much left now…!

Some people would say the heart of a brand would be it’s foundation so of course, by all means, sign me up for Illamasqua Rich Liquid Foundation.

Illamasqua+001

And finally I have just enough change left over to buy myself a Vanilla Frappachino and some Illamasqua Pure Pigment in Incite please.

Illamasqua+003

How about you?

What are you hauling with your virtual cash?

Or should I say what have you hauled from the brand already?

Beauty News: Illamasqua at Sephora

Illamasqua

Illamasqua slides onto Sephora’s virtual shelves today with a warm welcome from many a fan. I’m sure many are curious about the exchange from sterling to USD for those readers in the UK and those in the US. It appears that it is a tad cheaper on our side of the world as of current conversion (when the economy heals and the sterling begins to top USD again you’ll notice a considerably jump in the price). Prices are ranging at $1-$3 cheaper than product in the UK. Not too bad, hopefully UK’ers are relieved too but as I mentioned you’ll see a big jump as the economy heals. I’m quite happy with the prices and and think it looks quite good.

But most important we now have the brand locally and can enjoy the entire Illamasqua collection for ourselves! Yay!
