Hey Everyone!

I bet only a handful of us would go out wearing neon eye-shadow colors to go shopping. I raise my hand. Maybe it’s the fact that we think we look better in just neutrals but I think it’s probably more-so of what people would think of us. Illamasqua’s Human Fundamentalism collection beckons you to become “who you are and not who you’re told to be”. The collection’s bold and bright colors of commonly unworn shades urges you to turn heads by expressing who you really are. Albeit this blog post is ridiculously long overdue. I was back in Melbourne when this baby was sent to my Singapore address. I thought it was only necessary to blog about this anyway, I mean look at this kit!

Hey Everyone!

Sometimes we should revel in the beauty of the night. It’s dark, mysterious and has a certain calm about it that leaves us thinking to say the least. One cosmetic line that revels in the mysteries of the dark is the brand Illamasqua, a well-known UK based beauty known for it’s theatrical and bold colors and products. I have always wanted to try something from them, having just entered Melbourne in Myer stores recently, but never got around to it until a few weeks ago when they contacted me from London to see if I’d like to join their list of bloggers. Thoroughly thrilled, I accepted and they were nice enough to send me some products from their Theatre of the Nameless collection as a welcome gift. So here’s a little haul from Illamasqua and my very first. Let’s go!

Hey Everyone!

I just wanted to tell everyone that Illamasqua is now available in Melbourne, Australia! Illamasqua is known for their beautiful blushes, and pigmented shadows. The whole brand carries a dark, theatircal and mystical aura, even down to its slogan “Make-up for your alter ego”. From the website, Illamasqua states that it’s roots are from a dark 1920s club scene with a heavy emphasis on make-up for film and theater. Dramatic, emotional, dark, bold, Illamssqua emobodies all of these traits to create a very seductive and mysterious brand.

You can now find Illamasqua at Myer! Myer is the department store equivalent in Australia to Takashimaya or TANGS in Singapore or Nordstrom in the U.S. After lunch with a friend and checking out the MAC Wonderwoman collection, we stumbled upon Illamasqua. I snapped these pictures quickly with my Blackberry because I was scared that they might see me.
