What an exciting thing this is! An Illamasqua collection created by, and in acknowledgement of, the social force that really helped to put the brand on the map…….THE BLOGGERS! Yay! Illamasqua turns 5 years old this month (amazing how far they’ve come) and to celebrate they have chosen to release this very special collection. This hugely validates the blogging community, so much so I could cry!. Good for you Illamasqua and congratulations to @StyleSuzi, @VexintheCity, @PinkPixieDoll and @MunroeBergdorf.
Illamasqua Limited Edition #Creators Collection – The Bloggers
So, in the collection we have 2 nail polishes and 2 lips glosses and, as always with Illamasqua, they are pretty amazing.
Illamaqua Fusion created by @VexintheCity
Illamaqua Perseid created by @StyleSuzi
Illamaqua Perseid & Fusion Swatches
Illamasqua Lip Gloss Culminate and Wanderlust
Illamasqua Lip Gloss Culminate Swatch – Created by @PinkPixieDoll
Illamasqua Lip Gloss Wanderlust Swatch – Created by @MunroeBergdorf
They are perfect polishes – Fusion is like liquid! A molten blackened bronze that looks like I dipped my fingers in a melting pot of metallics. Persied is another winner. I love a glitter and this has it different shapes, sizes and hues for super sparkle.
I love Culminate. It is a seriously pretty and wearble lip gloss in lightly metallic peach. It’s one of those “your lips but juicier and plumper” numbers that will probably do a long stint in my handbag.
And finally there’s Wanderlust gloss. Now. This isn’t a colour I could wear on my lips. I just couldn’t. But I am thrilled to see it in there because it really wouldn’t be an Illamasqua collection without one scary edgy shade! The colour is absolutely gorgeous and has a lot in common with the Fusion nail varnish – I am thinking I’m going to try it as eye gloss because I really don’t want to miss out on it!
The Illamasqua Limited Edition #Creators Collection goes on sale on Monday 7th October 2013. The polishes are £14.50 and the glosses are £14. A true ‘social media meets brand’ moment. Power to the bloggers!!
