On Friday Mr. Postman brought me a black envelope branded with "ILLAMASQUA", and I was thrilled! A few months ago I was in contact with Illamasqua, and I was told that I would receive a few items for testing and reviewing. Unfortunately the package never arrived, and I decided to write them an e-mail to ask if there had been a delay or if the package had been lost in the mail? Some might think of me as rude for asking, but I thought it would be a shame if Illamasqua was expecting a review which never came, because I was still sitting here awaiting the products. So I asked, and quite right - it had been sent, and could not be traced. Bah! Illamasqua was kind enough to reship some goodies for me, and as already said.. it arrived today.

Illamasqua: make-up for you alter ego

The first product I fished out of the envelope was one of Illamasqua's nail polishes in "Jan". It's described as a "light dusky pink" with a glossy finish, an absolutely gorgeous color right up my lane. Illamasqua actually won Cosmopolitan's Beauty Award for Best Nail Polish 2010, so I'm glad I got the chance to try it out! The second product was one of their Intense Lipgloss in "Fierce", which is a "bright blue purple". Do I have to spell my excitement here? The last two items in the envelope was a sneak peek of what's coming this fall/winter! I'm quite honored. It's an eye liner called Precision Ink, and I received one in "Abyss" (pure black) and one in "Alchemy" (spun gold), and they look amazing.

More info and a review of these products will come soon!
