I am pretty excited to say that the Illamasqua Once Collection for Fall 2014 looks very lovely indeed. Soft shades and beautiful textures and some gorgeous rose gold packaging. I think Once is going to be a serious crowd pleaser.

Oh my god! I absolutely love the makeup in this image. The eyes and cheeks! Uh! The collection contains cream eyeshadows – Vintage Metallix, a new shade of powder blusher, Naked Rose (adore that name), 2 new sheer lip glosses – Opulent and Exquisite, and a stunning nail shade – Melange.

In Creative Director, Alex Box’s words “Once is the beauty of the burnished, eroded and erudite. A palette inspired by the gentle and exquisite point when a flower starts to fade and becomes impossibly beautiful in its complex decline. Combined with the subtle opulence of faded gilt layers that reveal themselves the more you blend and search. She is an incandescent moment, a poem alive and a light within a pallet of decaying decadence.”

Courtier is a dusky rose and I think  it looks incredible. This is the one for me!

Bibelot is a rustic golden teal and  Embellish is a rich cocoa.

Looking at the campaign shot, this promises to be stunning – it’s a soft neutral pink.

We have Exquisite – a pink oyster (yum), and Opulent – a rainbow beige. I have never heard beige described like that before, but I like it!!

Melange is a very Illamasqua shade and a love it. Deep, and dark with multi tones of antique teal.
