Beauty | Mini Illamasqua Haul!

31.8.14


Oh deary me, look what happened.. My will power is seriously tested when my favourite brand Illamasqua puts on their amazing sale. It's no surprise that more often than not my need of new products over comes how much I want to save money. But when most of the products are over 50% off how can I say no?! Initially I  only made a small order, but then when I got the 'New lines and further reductions' email I just had to go back for more.

Soooo what did I pick up? Well it's no secret that I'm absolutely in love with my Illamasqua Neutral Palette, so when they had eye palettes in the sale I couldn't hold back. I picked up both the Fundamental and Complement palette (oops)! I've been wanting the Complement palette for ages so I couldn't pass on it and although the Fundamental palette isn't my usual eye colour go-to I thought it was too good a bargain to turn down. You never know when you might fancy changing up your eye game, am I right? Next up I picked up my biggest Illamasqua vice - lipstick! This time in Magnetism. Maybe I didn't actually need this but I don't have a matte pink of this exact shade in my collection.. so it filled a void and will undoubtably be used! I also treated myself to a Fine Pencil in Uncanny, purely because it was only a fiver (bargain!) and can be used for anything on the face (I'm thinking brows and nose contouring). Lastly I picked up the Pure Pigment in Android as I'm obsessed with my Pigment in Ore, and a Cream Foundation in shade CF133 because it was only a tenner and my current pale foundation is running out so why not treat myself to a high end alternative!

I think all of these were perfectly justified... are you with me? What do you think of my purchases? xo
