I always get really excited when I get an email from Illamasqua announcing their new collection. Their products are always innovative and fun! I purchased a few products from their 'Extinct' collection a few weeks ago, along with 3 shades of their relatively new Lip Lures as well. I have been using them on clients and on photo shoots, and they are outstanding!
Firstly, the 'Extinct' collection. I bought the Precision Gel Liner in Quixotic, the Pure Pigment in Axolotl, and two of the Rose Gold Lipsticks in Born and Wanton.
I have been a HUGE fan of Illamasqua's Precision Gel Liner in Infinity. It is the blackest black and absolutely waterproof. I have been dying for them to create new shades, and finally my wish is granted! The beauty is you can use this as a liner or as a base for a deep peacock green smokey eye.
The Pure Pigment in Axolotl is divine buffed on top of this gorgeous gel to create a glittery holographic effect. The pigment leaked in my kit unfortunately, and everything was so shiny! On my next visit ti Illamasqua in Liverpool, I mentioned the leak and was given a new replacement lid which fits super tight. So big up the Illamasqua Liverpool crew!
The two lip shades in Wanton, a dusky rose, and Born, the perfect nude, are fabulous as well. I decanted these into my Vueset lip palette before I took a pic of their beautiful Rose Gold cases! Doh!

I also recently purchased three shades from the new Lip Lures. These are amazing long lasting glosses that stain the lips. They are non sticky and comfortable to wear and come in several bold shades. My favourite is Dusk, a deep berry red.
L-R Dusk, Rose, and Bloom... If anyone can recommend a good anti-wrinkle hand cream, please let me know!
These products are amazing, and I am enjoying using them! I will definitely be picking up more shades of the Lip Lures especially. I really really really hope the Illamasqua will bring out more permanent shades of their amazing gel eyeliner, it is absolutely the best formula out there. A brown and purple would be fantastic, if you're reading this Julian Kynaston!!!!
