Illamasqua The Sacred Hour

Illamasqua Sacred Hour

Den 19. august lanserte Illamasqua en ny kolleksjon, og denne gangen er den kalt The Sacred Hour. Jeg elsker navnene på Illamasquas kolleksjoner, men siden dette er et ganske kostbart merke pleier jeg ikke kaste meg over nye produkter sånn helt uten videre - selv om navnet i seg selv er aldri så forlokkende.

I anledning bursdagen min 7. august fikk jeg en bursdagskode med 15%, og siden jeg har en lojalitetsrabatt på 10% fra før, kunne jeg legge inn en ordre med 25% rabatt innen den 20. denne måneden. Perfekt! Heldigvis lar jeg meg sjeldent forføre av hele kolleksjonen, så jeg plukket ut to produkter jeg har hatt lyst på helt siden første gang jeg så dem - og i tillegg dristet jeg meg til å legge ved en palett fra en tidligere kolleksjon som jeg har hatt lyst på siden den kom.

Illamasqua I’mperfection

På mandag fikk jeg en pakkelapp i posten med beskjed om å hente en pakke som hadde ankommet fra Storbritannia. Da jeg dro ned på posten fikk jeg beskjed om at denne hadde blitt sendt til min gamle adresse, dermed også mitt gamle postkontor - og at jeg kunne hente den på tirsdag istedet. Jeg la også merke til at denne pakken visstnok hadde ankommet postkontoret den 6., og jeg fikk pakkelappen den 11.. Hvordan er det mulig? Posten Norge slutter aldri å overraske meg.

Uansett, pakken var fra Illamasqua og inneholdt to produkter fra deres nye kolleksjon I'mperfection. Det første var en av de fem Speckle-neglelakkene, den nøytrale i gjengen kalt «Freckle». Såvidt jeg kan se inneholder denne matt gråbrunt glitter i to ulike størrelser, og er ment å minne om fregner. Jeg syns den er kjempespennende, og er glad for at jeg fikk akkurat denne fargen! Det andre var leppestiften som kom med denne kolleksjonen; «Immodest», en herlig blanding mellom rosa og korall. Den er matt, og svært pigmentert.

Jeg kommer til å skrive omtaler av disse to produktene etter å ha lekt litt med dem, jeg ville bare vise dem frem. Neglelakken er limited edition, så dersom du syns disse ser spennende ut vil jeg anbefale å bestille den eller de du vil ha nå.

Illamasqua I'mperfection

Nothing is perfect, only uniquely beautiful;
in fact within the word 'imperfect' live two words that challenge it - 'I'm perfect'

Illamasqua Human Fundamentalism

Illamasqua Human Fundamentalism

Illamasqua released their newest collection Human Fundamentalism on March 14th, and two days prior to the release I received a black box in the mail. These black boxes are my favorite! When I opened it up I found a booklet for their new collection with information about all the products, a super cool tie-dyed piece of cloth, a lollipop and sherbet powder, and three of their new products: Powder Eye Shadow in "Pivot" (yellow green) and "Obsidian" (rich black), Nail Varnish in "Nomad" (bright jade), and a bottle of Sealing Gel, among green and purple feathers! Seriously, one's gotta love them.

IMATS London 2012

Sadly, another awesome day filled with makeup, wonder and fantastic people is over. I was sad to leave Alexandra Palace for the last time, knowing that the IMATS adventure of 2012 was already over. My London adventure isn't quite over yet, and I hope I'll get the opportunity to come back for IMATS 2013. It's been an exciting, fun, overwhelming, exhausting and just.. amazing weekend I'll keep close to my heart, and never forget!

Today was a lot calmer than yesterday, surely because England experienced a "heavy" snowfall last night, causing quite a lot of traffic chaos. Trains weren't leaving their stations, buses didn't go up hills, cars had trouble making turns in general. Oddly enough they don't seem to be used to snow over here, and are all driving on summer tires. Thankfully we had no problems getting around, so getting to Ally Pally was a breeze. I didn't haul a lot, as I spent most of my money on yesterday's treasures, but it didn't make my day less eventful, on the contrary! First and foremost I had the pleasure of spending the day with my dearest Pinchypeach, who always brightens my day no matter what. Then I met Koren also known as EnKore on YouTube, Chirufus from Twitter, the darling Alex C. from Illamasqua (and I finally got to give her a hug), and a little later we "ran into" Nicola and Samantha Chapman from Pixiwoo! Luckily we got to talk to them before everyone else discovered that they had arrived, and they were really wonderful. It's really strange meeting people like that, you feel like you've known them forever (just from watching all their videos or reading their blogs).

IMATS London 2012: Alex C. from Illamasqua

I don't know what it is, but I've been feeling really at home here. No one looks twice at me (the wheelchair), not even the children, and people are polite and helpful everywhere. In IMATS it felt amazing to be in an environment full of others sharing the same interest and passion for makeup as myself, as well as experiencing the talent of the students doing their projects and exploring the different brands and booths. IMATS London 2012 might be over, but it has been a fantastic weekend. And should you ever get the chance to attend, then go!
