Illamasqua: Human Fundamentalism

Heyy Everyone..
As you may know I was very lucky to be invited to the launch of Illamasqua's new collection Human Fundamentalism.

'Human Fundamentalism is an explosion of your alter ego. It's becoming who you are and NOT WHO YOU'RE TOLD TO BE.
Because beauty isn't conformity, but the fundamental human desire to express your inner self on the outside.'







So here it is the new collection by Illamasqua. 
Illamasqua is still a very young brand, but they are known for pushing the boundary's and encouraging you to experiment and play with make up. Instead of a black liquid liner, this collection has a white and instead of a nude/pink lipstick we have a teal.
'Human Fundamentalism' is all about expressing yourself through make up and not conforming to what you think you 'should' wear. 

In this collection there are two palettes, one is the Fundamental Palette, glistening liquid metal in molten pewter, matt cream pigment in mint green and two vibrant powder eye shadows in Hype (bold yellow) and Inception (rich Violet)
The other is the Neutral Palette, four gorgeous shades including Vintage, a gorgeous antique gold shade thats exclusive to this palette. 
There is also two new lipsticks, a gorgeous deep red and a teal. Two nail varnishes Nomad (bright Jade) and Stance (Fuchia Violet) Six individual eye shadows, a little sealing gel that turns any powder product into a water-resistant paste. Precision Ink in Scribe (true white) and last but by no means least a new Skin Base   foundation in shade Au, that has tiny flecks of metalic shimmer. 

While at the event I couldn't help but be in awe of all the girls wearing their white liner and teal lips, something I would of never dreamed of doing. I felt very bland in my smoky brown eye and pink lips, as soon as I saw the collection it made me want to dive in and say sod it to the make up 'rules' 


My personal stand out pieces are the two nail varnishes and the Skin Base in Au - trust me ill be ordering this asap.  

Illamasqua always put on such a good show, its like nothing is ever too much and I really love that about them. Sometimes I really have to pinch myself for being invited. 
Although I was happy enough to just be there, sticking my fingers in products and talking about the collection they didn't let us leave empty handed. I would never expect a goody bag, but when it was handed to me I could hardly contain my excitement. I think you will see why. 










How amazing is this goody bag... like seriously. And im such a sucker for little cards with my name on. 

Thank you so much Illamasqua... just for being.... you :)

Sooo hope you liked this post, and wasnt too long for you. 
Whats your thoughts on this collection? Are you brave enough to push the make up boundary's... 

Speak Soon my lovelies
