Hello My Lovelies,
Hope you are all well! How lovely is this weather we are having today?! I litterally came home from work and ran into my garden to catch a few rays! I'm hoping this weather will last and the weather is lovely where you are also :) I'm hoping to catch a little glow!!
The haul posts are starting to appear again haha, expect a few the upcoming weeks as i have a load of exciting events coming up, including two super exciting Chanel ones, MAC, Benefit and Urban Decay :P literally counting down the days haha, can't wait to share the new product releases with you all.
As you can let by the title of this post, this was my first ever Illamasqua haul. Last week Illamasqua hit 50,000 followers on Twitter and to celebrate they were offering 50% off EVERYTHING on their website!! The brand had always interested me but i never got round to purchasing anything. However, i'm super looking forward to checking out the counter at Sephora in LA in September so i can see all the shades and products in real life. As i had never tried anything from the brand before i decided to purchase kind of enough products for an entire Illamasqua face of makeup (minus mascara haha) and with the 50% discount i got such a good deal i couldn't stop adding to my basket. I would have purchased more except the website kept freezing and a lot of the lipsticks were sold out, however i am extremely happy with all my purchases :D
If you read my blog then you'll know my obsession with pink in general haha this beautiful Nymph blush is a super yummy warm candy pink which leaves a matte finish to the skin, so is pretty much perfect for me. It instantly stood out to me on the website and i can't wait to start using it. It reminds me almost to MAC Well Dressed which is also one of my all time favorite blushers.
Aurora Highlighting Cream
I'm a sucker for a beautiful highlighter and i was instantly drawn to this shade on the website. I am absolutely loving the dewy glow to the skin look for the summer time and i can't wait to start using this little beauty. It is a cream based product which is a little different to what i have previously used as i religiously use my MAC Soft and Gentle Mineralised Powder, however, i'm sure this will be a dream to apply to the skin. Quick little fact, Aurora aka Sleeping Beauty is my favorite Disney Princess so how perfect is this little combination haha.
Lipstick - Over
I seriously wanted to pile in the lipstick into my basket but most of them were sold out :( boo! Even thought that was the case i stumbled across this beautiful bright coral pink shade which leaves a matte finish to the lips. I am really enjoying wearing coral lips for the summer time and i have now accumulated a few beautiful shades from different brands. I think i see a coral lipstick post coming your way soon. I'm a strong believe in you can never have too many lipsticks so pretty please leave any lipstick recommendations in the comments below :D
Skin Base Foundation - Shade 5.5
I have constantly been seeing tones of reviews of this little treasure floating around the bbloggersphere and it is a fave at the weekly bbloggers chats. The Pixiwoo sisters religiously use this foundation in their tutorials also so i was instantly sold and have been coveting this foundation for a while now. I do love a flawless base for my makeup. Purchasing this online was a little gamble as i totally had to guess my shade. Even though i was looking at swatches online the shades looked different in each picture so it was a total guess. Surprisingly though when i opened the packaged yesterday and quickly swatched it, it looks like a perfect match!! I have yet to try it on my fave properly but i think i made some pretty awesome guessing skills right there haha.
I will be doing individual reviews on each of these products so pretty please let me know which ones you would like to see first :) I hope you enjoyed this little haul post, if you have any questions or requests please do not hesitate to contact me or leave a comment below.
