Illamasqua Dystopia Pink Smoke Quad

Illamasqua Dystopia: Pink SmokeEver since Illamasqua launched their collection Dystopia for autumn/winter 2009 I've been drooling over "Pink Smoke" and "Purple Smoke", the two absolutely gorgeous quads. For some idiotic reason I didn't jump on it when I had the chance, and even though I've been on the verge of getting it from ASOS several times, I never did. When I finally decided to order my favorite of the two, "Pink Smoke", I noticed to my horror that it had sold out. I asked Illamasqua via Twitter if these quads could still be obtained in any way, but I was told that they were both limited editions, so sadly no.

By pure coincidence I noticed that Illamasqua actually had "Pink Smoke" still in stock, and I hurriedly slipped it into my shopping basket. I did notice the small print saying "Available in the EU only", but I was hoping it meant "Europe" and not "European Union". Unfortunately it wouldn't let me check out due to the fact that Norway isn't a part of EU, and I was forced to leave this gorgeous quad. Boo! Thankfully I have fantastic friends, and I got two almost instant replies on Twitter by two wonderful girls offering to get it for me - thank you darlings, you know who you are! The easiest way was to order it from Illamasqua myself, and have it sent to a friend of mine who lives in the UK.

As already said it's a quad, and comes with the four colors: "Matter", "Quantum", "Synth" and "Rasp", whereas three of them are shimmery and the fourth matte. Each of the shades are 1.5 grams, and the quads cost £29 each which would be about 269,- NOK with today's exchange rate. A bit expensive to my taste, but it really resembles the quad from Lancôme Pink Irreverence which I really wanted, but refrained from buying because of the stiff ridiculous price.

I'm happy to announce that Illamasqua "Pink Smoke" is now mine!

    Når man har snille venner er det ingenting som er umulig! Grin Syns også det var litt merkelig at de ikke sender akkurat den til Norge, når det ellers ikke er noe problem å handle ting fra dem?
