Illamasqua Theatre of the Nameless

When Mr. Postman brought me a black padded envelope on Saturday I was really excited when I recognized it to be a package from Illamasqua! They recently launched their new collection Theatre of the Nameless, and I received three items from this dark and sexy collection: a cream pigment, a pure pigment and a nail varnish. Oh, how I love Illamasqua!

"In this nocturnal den of the dissident leaders of underworld subcultures, exotic dancers rub shoulders with actors and anarchists. It's time to cross the threshold and embrace a world of unadulterated decadence."

Cream Pigment in "Androgen" · Pure Pigment in "Zeitgeist" · Nail Varnish in "Kink"

The Cream Pigments was first launched with Toxic Nature, which you can read a little about here. With the new Theatre of the Nameless they launched two new colors: "Androgen" (coral) and "Depravity" (magenta), and I received one of them. I love these pigments, and the versatility of them. "Androgen" is a quite bright coral color, and I can imagine it used in eye looks or even blended out as a blush for my complexion.

The Pure Pigment has been available for quite some time now, and I already own a few of them - such fantastic colors! They now launched three new colors: "Beguile" (light shimmer), "Berber" (auburn shimmer) and "Zeitgeist" (dark shimmer), from which I received the latter. It's a charcoal blackish color with shimmer, and I think it'll be perfect for just about any smokey eye combination. Just pop a little in the outer corner, and you'll instantly add a little mystery and some depth to your look!

I think the four new nail varnishes from this collection was the most exciting product of them all, mainly because they feature a new rubberized finish. From the four varnishes "Faux Pas" (blue violet), "Kink" (bottle green), "Vice" (deep cerise) and "Taint" (stone brown) I received the bottle green "Kink", and I have to say it's my favorite of the bunch. It might just be the perfect deep, dark green for fall? I'll be posting some pictures of it on my nails later on, and I'll also be doing a review of it.

In addition to the three products, I also received a gorgeous catalog promoting all the new products as well as their regular stock, and a personal note sealed with wax. So classy! I guess I'll just have to wait until I have a little fun money to spare, so I can pick up two more things from this collection. Wink
