Illamasqua Collective Haul

A few weeks ago I was invited to a private Illamasqua event where Alex Box, founder of Illamasqua, did a live application. I swear, it is an understatement when I say watching her was magical. The model was her blank canvas and she literally created a masterpiece. The experience was jawdropping and I would be lying if I said I didn't drool at one point. Watching her do her thing with such confidence and how the model ended up looking like a beautiful creature from another universe (which nobody expected) just made me realize even more that this is what I want to do in my life!
After the event, I received a press kit which included:

Powder Foundation - PF243
Powder Blusher - Naked Rose
Sheer Lipgloss - Opulent
Lipstick - Box .... Signed by Alex Box!
Illamasqua Powder Foundation - PF243
This powder foundation appears darker than it actually is in the picture. With that being said, I will probably use it as a bronzer. Not sure how this will work out.
Illamasqua Powder Blusher - Naked Rose
AH! This blusher was actually on my wishlist!! The most perfectly muted pink/mauve blush ever seen. I've been using it everyday for the past few weeks.
Illamasqua Sheer Lipgloss - Opulent
Sheer gold gloss with A LOT of glittler. Hmm, I haven't made up my mind about this lipgloss yet.
Illamasqua Lipstick - Box
Lipstick in 'Box', signed by Alex Box.

The press kit also included a voucher so I headed over to the Illasmaqua store and bought a few things that have been on my wishlist for a really long time.
Illamasqua Cream Pigment in Hollow which is meant as a base for the eyes but so many pale girls use it for contouring.
Illamasqua Eyeshadow in Heroine, it is known that Alex Box uses this eyeshadow for contouring. It's a grey toned, light brown so it wont come off as orange on the face. The grey tone in it will create the perfect illusion of a shadow rather than an orange streak in the hollows of the cheeks.
Illamasqua Lipstick in Scandal, a beautiful coral shade.
Illamasqua Lipstick in Kontrol, a vampy, gorgeous, dark purple.
Illamasqua Lipstick in Posture, grey toned lilac. A dupe for Limecrime lipstick in Chinchilla.

I can't wait to start creating looks with my new goodies! Stay tuned!
