Illamasqua Haul

Actually went to the Trafford Centre last week and forgot to post what I got. So thought I would do it quickly now.

Ended up at the Illamasqua counter.... which was so much fun as I got to have my whole makeup done!

I picked up Intense Lipgloss in Frenzy, Light Liquid foundation in LF115, and Obsess nail varnish.

Love the colour and texture of the gloss, I’m not a massive fan of lipsticks and I tend to struggle with finding the right colour, so this seems perfect. Its not just a plain gloss which I do tend to pick up alot of. It’s got really good staying power as well and although it does lose the glossiness the colour remains.

The varnish is gorgeous and so intense. I’ll post a NOTD up shortly.

I’ve been after a new foundation for ages and this is one thats been on my list to give a go. I’m very fair and find that even with most brands lightest shades I still tend to look abit orangey once its on. Oh and like everyone I do want staying power. Loved the fact that there is such a good choice of shades and this one a perfect shade for me. I’ve been wearing it since I got it and although the shade is perfect, I’m just not convinced about the finish once it on. It goes to look abit patchy by my nose which is sooo not a good look. At the moment I don’t use a primer (I’m on a desperate search for one at the moment) so I don’t know if this would make a difference. I’m going to keep giving it a go and see how I get on...
