Illamasqua Week - FOTD 3

Face: avon tinted moisturiser, Illamasqua Loose Powder in LP005, Illamasqua powder eyeshadow in Lick (as blush)

Lips: Illamasqua Intense Lipgloss in Mistress
Eyes: Illamasqua cream eyeshadows in Stir, Midas and Outcast.

I've realised after your comments on my last post that you're right, i've never found a cream eyeshadow that doesn't crease! So really my complaints about the Illamasqua cream shadows, while justified, are no worse than any others. I'm going to try using these as a base for powder shadows (the thought hadn't occurred to me because i am thick) and continue using them on the browbone and as eyeliner, just not as a eyeshadow on their own.

Some more exciting and original looks will be coming shortly, i feel i've been playing it too safe lately and i want to give you guys a good idea of some more avant-garde looks you can make with Illamasqua.


  1. Pretty! Reminds me of the sunset! :)

  2. Pretty :) I'm sure you can think of some really creative things to do with the cream eyeshadows! I think it'd be a shame only to use them as a base, they are expensive, but you have lots of non-creasing face areas!

  3. I love that touch of really well on your skin tone :)

    And please tell me you're wearing falsies, otherwise I'm going to be epically jealous of your eyelashes XD

  4. HeavenNRJ:
    Thank you!

    You're right, i should give them a go for some avant-garde looks or as lip or cheek colours :D

    Thank you! It's odd i think i look nice with yellow eyeshadows, but i look terrible in yellow clothes!
    And i'm sorry but the lashes are all mine :P

  5. As always, I LOVE your eyelashes! I love how you look in yellow too! And reading your comment above, well, I HATE orange clothing on me. Or red orange. Or just orangey stuff. But i like orangey bronzey shadows... hmm...

  6. Loooove that intense lipgloss shade :) cream eyeshadows need to be renamed, unless they dont crease!

  7. Y: Thank you :) It's weird, i guess just a little bit of orange (or in my case yellow) can look fine, but if we wear big amounts of it as clothes it makes our skintones look worse. Odd though!

    I just love alll the lipgloss colours *__*
    I guess they still are eyeshadows, just not very effective ones :P


I love comments and try to reply to every one i get.
