Haul | Illamasqua Haul | Review/Swatches




Just a quick post to show you what I picked up from Illamasqua a couple of weeks ago. Firstly I HAVE to tell you although if you're on Twitter you will be sick of me hyping about the Skin Base Lifts but seriously they work as both concealer and a colour corrector, if you have ever seen ladies with greyish looking under eye bags where it seems like they have tried to cover them up but it seems not to have worked this is because you can't simply go and apply a light shade over a dark path it won't work. This is where colour correcting comes on to the scene you need to tone down the area first before even trying to lift it back up. The best part is that the skin base lifts work as a 3-in-1 not only do they colour correct, and conceal but they can also be used for adding a shimmer free highlight too. I am a MAC NC30/35 the shade I use is Medium 1 this is for simply colour correcting, concealing and covering up blemishes, this shade works with almost all asian skin tones, if the area is too dark then I use Medium 2 first and then on with Medium 1 and finally I have the shade Light 2 for highlighting I love this for under eye highlighting as shimmer doesn't work for me in this area.

I also picked up the smoothing brush to go with these, I also got the Eye Pencil in the shade Seize this works great on the lips too! Finally I picked up two lipsticks which I have reviewed here one is from the new satin shades and one is from the nude collection.
