I have been using Illamasqua for over 10 years now and I love them. They are not tested on animals and have a lot of vegan friendly products. I love the intensity of their products. They seem so pigmented and last for ages.

I thought I would put together this post to show you my favorite products that I use all the time.



The gel liner in Ebony has been my favorite eyeliner to use on everyone. It has a gel like substance, which glides effortlessly and doesn’t dry up in the pot. It lasts me ages. It is water resistant and dries in about a minute then doesn’t move. They have now bought out more colours. My favourite to wear at the moment is deviate, which is a dark plum.

This foundation is a full coverage, but doesn’t look cakey on the skin. It looks great in photo’s with no flashback. You can build it up and there are loads of shades to choose from.

Skin base concealer is one of their new products. I have been using them for a few months now and I love them! They are full coverage, brightens under the eyes and leaves it matt, so you can use it as an eye primer as well. They come is a few shades and in a pen container, but I tend to pump them out on the back of my hand then apply with a brush.

Illamasqua cream pigments are super pigmented so they go a long way. The main colour in my kit is Emerge, which is a perfect colour for correcting blue under the eyes. It doesn’t crease like some other brands and lasts really well.

I have a couple of these colours, mainly nude shades for my brides. I have fantasy and woo, but they have just bought out some more nude shades, which I might have to order next time. The pencils seem really long and last ages. They don’t stick while applying, but glide nicely. Fantasy is a nude peach colour and Woo is more of a nude pink.

I haven’t tried many of their lipsticks, as they are really strong colours and not very bridal, but Rosepout is my favourite, which is such a flattering colour for a lot of people especially medium toned skins. It is a satin consistency, but does look matt when applied, but not uncomfortable to wear.
