Illamasqua Competition in support of SOPHIE Charity

I am sure by now, you all must be aware of the Sophie Lancaster Foundation. The foundation aims to stamp out Prejudice, Hatred and Intolerance everywhere [their fantastic website and Facebook page will tell you more]
The aims and objectives of the Charity are as follows:
  • To create a lasting legacy to Sophie.
  • To provide educational group-works that will challenge the prejudice and intolerance towards people from alternative subcultures.
  • To campaign to have the UK Hate Crime legislation extended to include people from “alternative subcultures” or “Lifestyle and Dress”
  • To work in conjunction with politicians and police forces to ensure individuals who are part of subcultures are protected by the law.
In honour of Sophie’s birthday and to mark their support for the Sophie Lancaster Foundation, Illamasqua is hosting an Internationallyopen competition to win a selection of cult pieces from the Illamasqua collection, including Medium Pencil in Sophie, Pure Pigment in Zeitgeist, Nail Varnish in Unnatural, Intense Lipgloss in Repulse, False Eye Lashes in no.21 and a S.O.P.H.I.E wristband.
And best of all, there will be FIVE winners! The competition is open until Midnight GMT Sunday 27th November [T&C’s can be found at the link below].

Illamasqua Launches FREAK

The biggest launch in Illamasqua’s history, their debut fragrance Freak launched today across www.illamasqua.com, across the Selfridges counters and Flagship store!
This exotic and unconventional scent is not alone…to accompany the launch of Freak, they have created a capsule collection of three Limited Edition products, whose shades reflect the rare blooms that make up this concoction of dangerously exotic unconventional flowers.
Embracing the mysterious histories of their namesakes are hardwearing Nail Varnish in Hemlock (pale opal green iridescent), the nocturnal heart of Pure Pigment in Queen of the Night (blackened plum), and a sensual Sheer Lipgloss in Datura (neutral mauve).
The capsule collection is also included in a Limited Edition Gift set, comprising Freak, Nail Varnish in Hemlock, Pure Pigment in Queen of the Night and the exclusive Sheer Lipgloss in Datura. The gift set is available for £80, offering a saving of £21 and makes the perfect Christmas gift – or little indulgent treat for a make-up lover!
PS – Illamasqua ships worldwide, but the fragrance may not be available to be shipped to many countries due to security/customs regulations.

Illamasqua’s New Mascara..The "Masquara"

If eyes are the windows of the soul, Illamasqua’s new Masquara reveals a heart of darkness with a formula that lengthens, defines and dramatises lashes to extremes.

According to David Horne- Illamasqua’s Director of New Product Development,

”Illamasqua’s new Masquara in Raven has taken flight. Masquara creates a jet black flutter of beautifully defined lashes – lash by lash perfection. Reapply for added drama and prepare to step into the night.”

Introducing the happy union of two new beauty innovations; our defining, lengthening and dramatising brush design, combined with Masquara’s midnight black smudge proof formula, ensures lashes that last the whole night through.  Bring out the power of your eyes and complete your alter ego.

New Masquara provides a glimpse into the heady world of indulgence that is Illamasqua’s AW11 Theatre of the Nameless collection, to be unleashed globally in its full decadent glory on Friday 2nd September 2011.

Price:  £15.00
Shade:  Raven (midnight black)

Masquara is available online at http://www.illamasqua.com:

At the Illamasqua Flagship Store, 20 Beak Street London; Selfridges Oxford Street London, Manchester and Birmingham; Fenwick Newcastle; and Debenhams Cardiff, Glasgow and Belfast.

EOTD-Go Festive with Illamasqua Pure Pigment-Ore

I have been lagging FOREVER, wanting to do a look using illamasqua Pure Pigment In Ore. Now this color, it is one of a kind.
Is it wearable?? -Yes!!
Is it Festive? Hell Yes!!.It’s a truly one of a kind color. If you have been contemplating about buying products From Illamsqua, this is something you should not miss out on. Anyways, moving onto the look that I did- it’s a rather “evening” look, something you can wear to a party or wedding or get together.
