Illamasqua Treats

Heyy Everyone..
As it was recently my birthday I decided to treat myself to two Illamasqua items off my wishlist. 

So heres we have Powder Blush in Sophie and a Lipstick in Immodest. I've been eyeing these for so long and im over the moon to finally have them. 

The Sophie Blusher is named after Sophie Lancaster who along with her boyfriend Robert Maltby was kicked, stamped on and left unconscious for nothing more than looking different. Unfortunately Sophie died from her injuries. This is a truly shocking story and its times like this you realize exactly how vile some people can be in this world.  
The Sophie Lancaster foundation was set up by Sylvia Lancaster Sophie's mother who works to stamp out intolerance and discrimination in society. As a brand that promotes the right to experiment and self-express Illamasqua is proud to support the Sophie Lancaster Foundation. 
If you want more information on this you can head over to the website or if you go to the explore section of the Illamasqua website you can also see more and even make a donation to the foundation if you wanted to. 

The Sophie Blusher is described as a Golden Coral Shimmer and id say that's spot on. On first impression id say it looks very similar to NARS Orgasm blush but I don't own it so I cant do a proper compare. This blush does have shimmer particles in it but I don't mind that at all, however if you do hate glitter in your blush don't dismiss this because the shimmer particles are so tiny you wont be left with disco ball face I find it just give a nice radiance to the skin.

Illamasqua's Immodest lipstick is a vivid blue toned pink, highly pigmented and looks very bright at first glance, however once you apply it you find its allot more wearable than you think at first glance and of course it can be built up to however intense you would like it. I'm a sucker for bright pink lipsticks so I knew this had to be mine. This is a very matte lipstick so you might want to pop some lip balm on before and because its so matte it does highlight any dryness so maybe a bit of lip prep might be in order. That aside its very pigmented and once on the lips it does not feather or bleed. A perfect addition to my collection. 

I will be wearing both blush and lipstick on my night out tomorrow so I will have a FOTN to show you plus I can tell you how well I found them to last of an evening. 

I'm over the moon with these two little gems, Illamasqua don't ever get it wrong in my opinion. 

Speak Soon
