How very exciting the latest collection from Illamasqua is! They have collaborated with four bloggers to create their very own pieces of makeup which together, make up the #Creators Collection – which takes inspiration from four corners of the online galaxy.
Milly from Pearls & Poodles created Culminate lipgloss – a sheer orangey pink with a hint of iridescence and glitter giving it dimension. She says about her creation “Culminate uses metallic copper tones to illuminate the lips and add a futuristic, space-age feel. The iridescent finish is inspired by the stars of the universe and adds new dimension to colour.” It’s such a pretty shade on the lips, and because of it’s sheer-ness, could be used over lipstick.
The last piece of the collection was created by Suzi from Style Suzi – Perseid nailpolish, which I audibly gasped at when I saw the bottle. It reminded me of a galaxy manicure in just one polish – a predominately black shade which leans purple or green in the light, then chunks of big, sparkly glitters, and smaller ones too – just beautiful. She says “Inspired by the explosion of colours in the galaxy, I wanted to evoke the mysterious nature of the sky at night. Different sized glitters were used to created a texture as unique as a star”. As there’s so much packed in to this polish, it is easier to apply warmed up – so keep it in between your legs while you apply a base coat, and give it a roll in your hands before you apply to make it more fluid.
The limited edition Illamasqua #Creators collection launches today online and at Illamasqua stand-alone stores.
