Yesterday I went to my first ever Illamasqua event! It was very exciting as it is such a cool, edgy brand that I have always been really interested in, but for one reason or another, ReallyRee and Illamasqua have never got any further than one lipstick – which I love by the way!
So I’mperfection is the first Illamasqua collection I have had a proper look at, and I have to say, I was thoroughly impressed.
Illamasqua I’mperfection Collection
I think I am most excited about the Speckle Nail Polishes:
Illamasqua Speckled Nail Polishes (£14.50 each)
I spent quite a long time last year trying to create this effect, and here Illamasqua have it all in a bottle and far better than I could ever do it on my own. Fabulous! Can’t wait to try these out.

The new Illamasqua Blush Up Brush is very exciting!
Illamasqua Blush Up Brush (£28.50)
It’s fun trying to say it fast too! It kind of reminds me of that dog that used to say “sausages”! OK ignore me!
This brush is designed to tuck right under the cheek bone for unrivalled contouring. As I have been slightly obsessed with contouring since the end of last year, I am pretty desperate to see what this can do for me!
Illamasqua Powder Blush Duos (£26)
And I’ll be practising the contouring with these new Powder Blush Duos which I’m told are Illamasqua’s cult powder blusher formula re-worked into a duo palette. I have Lover and Hussy (!), so will be showing you that soon.
Illamasqua Lipstick in Immodest (£16) and Intense Lipgloss in Leaf Green (£14)
Finally, lips! A stunning new matte pink lipstick called Immodest and the rather ‘out there’ new Intense Lipgloss in Leaf Green. Apparently it is the official colour of 2013!
Illamasqua Intense Lipgloss in Leaf Green
Not entirely sure about this one (or at all!) but I am positive that there are some insanely cool people that could definitely pull this off. Sadly, I don’t think that will ever be me!
Well I thoroughly enjoyed my first official experience of Illamasqua. I definitely think we are going to be friends!
Illamasqua’s I’mperfection will be available from 31st January 2013.
