ILLAMASQUA EYE SHADOW PALETTE


Don't you just love eye shadows? I know that I do. I had the Lookfantastic Advent calendar last year and even though I wasn't so impressed with most of the products they had added in it, it had a few pretty good moments. One of them is this Illamasqua eyeshadow palette. I can't remember what door this was behind of, but I was happily surprised when I found this from the calendar. This is one of my first touches with Illamasqua so I had really no idea what to expect - other than the fact that I happen to be all over the eyeshadows. 

The packaging looks so luxurious! It reminds me of one of those Dior eyeshadow palettes (like I said, this is my first touch with Illamasqua so I probably have no clue what type of a brand this is) with its black packaging and mirror. 
This palette has 4 shades in it. 1 shimmery and 3 mattes. I really do love a good matte eyeshadow, but recently when I've started to fall in love with shimmery ones I was kind of hoping these to be 50/50. But you know, as a proper eyeshadow palette lover I've got quite a few shades...


I absolutely fell in love with the shade 'Tango' (oh well, look at that, it's shimmery) and I think it fits so well together with the shade 'Servant'. Although, I kind of like the shade 'Terra' too but I believe 'Vernau' in its all redness is a bit extreme for me. Last time I wore red eyeshadow was two Halloweens back because it was kind of important part of my Halloween look for 2015. Although, I might give this a go. 

Mostly, the palette reminds me a bit of Autumn and the shades are bringing the late Autumn and early December to my mind. I don't really know why, though, it's probably that red eyeshadow in the right corner. Well, even though these look great for Autumn, Spring is coming so it might be I won't be using this until next Autumn or so. Or well, who knows - I'm kind of odd when it comes to choosing eyeshadows.

  2. I love eye shadows (and have way too many!) This palette has good colours, I would probably use the first three the most, not so sure of the Vernau. To my understanding Illamasqua is one of the higher end brands so thats a great addition to your advent calendar.

  7. This palette looks stunning and I love all the shades, especially Vernau. I never used to like bright shades with eye shadows but they are great for warming up an eye look by blending a little into the crease.

    1. Hmm, I guess I should try that out! I'm not so confident wearing anything that bright, but would love to be someday!

  8. I think I agree with you. Tango looks fab! But, they all look like they could really liven up my eye with a great lip color.

  13. This palette is gorgeous. I actually quite like the red shade. I've been very into MakeupGeek's Cocoa Bear - not quite as bright as the one in this palette but I love using redish shades in the crease x

  14. These shades are so beautiful, I love illamasque, and how they are pigmented they are. I'd be a bit scared to use the red too, but I reckon it would look stunning if it was done right!
