Haul: Illamasqua (Hypnotica)
Hey there, Internet!
These days I am in some kind of Illamasqua shopping mood – they throw one new collection after another one at us and you can be sure there always is at least one item you’re craving for. In the beginning of June they released the Hypnotica mini collection which included the marbled lipstick ‘lava lips’, sketch sticks, dolly fake lashes and slick sticks and I was lucky enough that I still had my Birthday 15% off coupon.
So this is what I bought when the Hypnotica collection was released, mixture of new collection and old stuff.
False Eye Lashes in Dolly (11GBP):
Official Product Details: Handmade and cruelty free, Illamasqua False Eye Lashes are the go to for adding subtle volume and length to your natural lashes. Apply Dolly to the lower lash line with the latex-free glue provided for a flirty, fun enhancement.
First impression: I think these are the first pair of lashes that I own that say they should be used for the lower lash line. Will do some modification on them but like the first impression, they do look quite natural!
Sketch Stick in Haze (15GBP, 2.4 g / 0.08 OZ):
Official Product Details: A multi-use crayon with powerful pigment pay off. Sketch Stick allows you to get creative with colour with its creamy texture allowing for easy blending. The faultless way to add a splash of colour to any look.
First impression: I really want to try how good this one is as a lipstick or maybe as some primer for dark eyeshadows? Probably a lot of different ways to use this for and I will do a detailed review with some of them for you soon.
False Eye Lashes No. 27 (Desire, 12.50GBP):
Official Product Details: Handmade and cruelty free, Illamasqua False Eye Lashes in 27 are the go to lashes for adding subtle volume and length to your natural lashes. Apply with the latex-free glue provided for ultimate staying power and precise application..
First impression: Lovely pair of lashes, adding a lot of volume while still looking natural. I guess they will be some kind of everyday falsies for me.
Skin Base Foundation in 02 (32.50GBP, 30 ml / 1 FL OZ):
Official Product Details: Our award-winning Skin Base Foundation in shade 02 is the go-to choice to create a flawless complexion every day. This lightweight, easily blendable foundation is suitable for most skin types and smooths, softens and conditions thanks to skin boosting Vitamin C and E. Tested in HD environments, this foundation also provides the ultimate skin realism effect and with 26 shades to choose from, finding your perfect match has never been so easy.
First impression: For this I emailed the Illamasqua team, before this I’ve used Rick Liquid Foundation and Powder Foundation, both in 115 and I wasn’t sure which of the Skin Base Foundations would be the right color. They told me to get 02 and from the first swatch I think it is just perfect and now I just hope this will work good on my oily skin! (combination skin with very oily parts)
I guess in July the lip lure in Nebulus will follow since I really miss the dark green lipgloss color that I got a few years back in a glossybox and also would like to try some other brand of liquid lipsticks than the Jeffree Star one.
Is there something you can’t resist buying like I can’t with new false lashes? Have a nice evening!
