My New Obsession: Illamasqua Cosmetics

11:02 PM

Move over MAC, a new brand is coming to America!! Illamasqua has officially landed in the United States. I found out about this brand through the fabulous pixiwoo on youtube. For those of you that don't know about Pixiwoo, it is two sisters that are makeup artists, and they demonstrate that talent through their blog and youtube channel. Back in April they introduced the world (and me!) to the new UK brand called Illamasqua. From then on, I was on a mission to find out more about the brand because I was so impressed by the products they were using. The colors are all very vivid, pigmented, and all around gorgeous.

What is unique about Illamasqua is that most of their products meaning the eyeshadows, blushes, lipsticks are matte shades. Me, I'm usually a shimmer girl, but I am being converted into a matte girl per this brand. What is so cool about Illamasqua you ask? Well, let me show some of their featured looks. Their visual impact is amazing.

Are you impressed yet? Yep, me too!! The slogan for this brand is "Make-up for your alter ego", and I absolutely love it. I love it because for me, makeup is such a good way to express myself. If I wore browns everyday, I would go mad. Don't get me wrong I'm known to rock a neutral look, but my love is color. With this brand's bright, vivid, pigmented colors, I knew it was going to be a favorite of mine once I get my hands on it.

Fast forward 4 months, and Illamasqua is now available in the states. It is going to be exclusive to 27 Sephora stores and Sephora online. Don't you know I was one happy lady when I found out I would now be able to try a brand I've been lusting after for months. I'm trying to not go spending crazy, and I'm waiting until the first swatches come in until I make my first order. I will be making an order very soon. When that happens, you will be the first to know my impressions of the brand.

Until then....

Peace, Love, and Happiness from me to you!!
