Illamasqua sale haul

This is my first Illamasqua haul.. ever! I've always lusted after this brand after following their social media pages for nearly 2 years and still not buying anything. Like most good brands they're not so easily accessible where I live so it's internet purchases, which put me off slightly! (I like to see things in person). But the amazing Illamasqua sale egged me on and I bit the bullet and tried some of their products, they had 50%, 60% and 70% off a lot of their stock! I did get one full price item but that's only because I've been wanting to try it for ages! 

I decided to get the Multi Facet palette in Semblance as I loved lilac shade on the right hand side! It was a choice between this shade and a more neutral version of the palette. Top to bottom: Gleam in Mirage, Cream pigment in Hollow Toffee, Eyebrow cake in Thunder, Powder blush in Hussy and four eyeshadows which I am unsure of the names! So there is literally a product for every part of the face. The blush is really bright and pigmented so a little of the product is enough colour for me, but it is a lovely shade of dark pink.

I also decided to get two eyeshadows out of the sale, the two shades I got were Hype and Soul, I was instantly drawn to these two bright colours out of the others that were in the sale. I love all the looks you can create with a yellow eyeshadow (which I am yet to master) and I thought the silver would be great for any highlighting on my eyes.

The blush which is in the shade Beg was the only full price blush I got and it was £21.50! It is crazily expensive compared to some of the other blushes available but if you compare it to Mac blushes it comes in a much bigger pan. The product is also amazingly creamy and pigmented, so a tiny bit of this enough! I made the mistake when I first bought it of putting it onto my cheeks and looking like a clown, but I've figured out how to get it just right now.. thank god. You can see how pigmented all of the products are from the swatches, they're so thick!

I'm so glad with my purchases, especially seeing as I picked all the sale items up for less than what the Multi Facets palette is full price! Have you purchased anything from Illamasqua before? Can you recommend anything from their range?

  2. The palette is gorgeous! I was really tempted to buy it but just couldn't justify buying another neutral palette. Still haven't tried anything from Illamasqua but need to soon. x
