It has been a while since I’ve done a beauty brand lowdown so here is one for good measure! RY.com.au recently sent me some Illamasqua goodies to celebrate it’s launch on RY! (Yes, you can now purchase Illamasqua on RY.com.au (the offer AfterPay and free shipping for orders over $99!) Check Illamasqua out here.
If you didn’t know, Illamasqua was founded back in 2008 and is known for its unconventional and bold makeup products. They’re now a cult beauty brand that continues to grow globally. I was lucky enough to be gifted some products that I’ll be reviewing in today’s blog post! Ready?
Illamasqua Beyond Powder – OMG
There’s a reason they named this highlighter OMG – it is incredibly OMG. You guys know I love a good glow and you guys know I like to be a little bit extra when it comes to applying highlight. So you’ll also know to trust me when I say this is in my top 3 – that’s saying an awful lot. At first I thought the highlight would be too pale for me however when I applied it with a fan brush on my face, it was a game changer.
The highlighter gives a gorgeous subtle glow if you apply 1 swatch however, for that glow getter highlight, be sure to apply as many layers as you wish. On an everyday basis, I do the 1, on nights out, I like to challenge myself and reach for 4 or 5 just for safe keeping, you know what I mean?
Illamasqua Neutral Eyeshadow Palette
Isn’t this just the best palette to take travelling? It can be used for brows (which I do), everyday makeup or glam. The shades are Stealth (top left), Vintage (top right), Wolf (bottom left) and Obsidian (bottom right).
The Illamasqua Neutral Eyeshadow Palette is so my style in that the shades are universal and timeless. Universal because I feel the shades can be used on any skin tone and timeless because the shades are simple and usable. For an everyday makeup look, you can mix Stealth and Wolf to create a classic brown eye. For a glamorous look, you can smoke out Obsidian and add Vintage to the lid and inner corner for a pop of gold magic! I love this palette for its simplicity yet versatility.
