Illamasqua Viridian Nail Polish

Illamasqua Viridian Nail Polish

Hi there! I'm so glad the weekend is here! I'm in desperate need of some shut eye! Did any of you miss nail polish posts? It feels like I haven't done one in a very long time! Today's polish is the stunning jewel-toned Illamasqua Viridian! Illamasqua Viridian is a complex colour that's partly a metallic teal and dark green. Stay with me here... You can pick up a bit of blue duochrome in the bottle but that's where it stays. On the nail, it's a darker green with microshimmer and depth. On close…Read more

Guide to Berry Lips

If you are uncomfortable around an excessive amount of lipsticks, please retreat! This post is only for the brave! I'm hoping, that this post will help you pick out or discover colours you'd like for your fall/autumn/winter looks.

Illamasqua Lipstick in Atomic

Illamasqua Lipstick in Atomic

I had always wanted to try Illamasqua lipsticks and Atomic was one shade that I was always attracted to. Illamasqua Atomic is a bright warm pink but with a frosty purple sheen. It's described as a fuchsia violet which is quite accurate but it's on the warmer side. I'd say it's one of the few frosty lipsticks in my collection. But I don't think it looks tacky like the very pearlescent frosty ones. The sheen is purple or pink depending on the lighting and it looks amazing, there's also some shimmer in there.…Read more
Illamasqua Lipstick in Magnetism

Illamasqua Lipstick in Magnetism

The one good thing about Illamasqua (besides making good quality products) is that their sales are always reliable. I'd say almost a year ago I hauled 2 lipsticks and 2 nail polishes during a sale because I really wanted to try something the brand. I call these one of my weak blogger moments. Anyway, somehow I completely missed out on reviewing them but here's one gorgeous lipstick from the lot. Illamasqua Magnetism is a red berry or a deep raspberry shade. I also have a comparison below but it's a berry tone that's…Read more

Illamasqua Satin Primer

Illamasqua Satin Primer

Face primers are such a tricky thing to buy! They can be too shiny, too oily, too heavy or they just don't do anything . If you have pores, acne you might also be prone to breakouts from silicone based primers. Basically, what I mean to say is, you need to have a few parameters while choosing a primer and then pick one which fits you. First off, I wanted a primer with no silicones. I also have dry skin and didn't really need a matte primer. But I also don't want to end up…Read more
