I Love Illamasqua

Hello Everyone :)

I'm taking a little study break to listen to the glee albumn and write a cheeky post! On Monday I popped into Debenhams to have a look at the illamasqua counter...I went in for one thing and came out with four ha! Here's what I bought...

Cream blushes in Promise and Laid (l-r). Oooooo these get me so excited! The colours are simply beautiful! I think Laid looks a lot scarier in that swatch than it actually is...i'm wearing it in the cocktail post before. So I can definitely say these are long wearing as I think it was the item of make that wasn't smeared off my face ha ha!

I also bought...

I originally only popped in to get the S.O.P.H.I.E's normally a lot darker than this but it's an amazing pencil for favorite! This is my second S.O.P.H.I.E pencil as I really do love the smuginess...I also got strumpet free because I spent over £30!! Illamasqua pencils are about the creamiest I've tried!

I'm sure most of you know about the Sophie Lancaster Foundation so I wont say too much about it I find it really upsetting, however I will include the short film commissioned by Illamasqua at the end of this post which tells it all really. With every pencil bought £3 is donated to the foundation...or you can even just buy a wrist band....

Here's the video, i'm not ashamed to say it made me cry...also the Sophie Lancaster Foundation are trying to get 1000000 hits, so you could also click on the video to watch it...

Lots of Love


  1. great post Nic =)

    R.I.P poor Sophie xx

  2. Ooh lovely purchases!

    That short film made me cry too, it's beautifully made but so so sad. Hopefully something good will come out of something so awful. xo

  3. The cream blushes are really gorgeous! I've been into cream blushes lately, they're so dewey and fresh looking! And that is possibly the saddest video i've ever seen. I've only seen it once, and couldn't even bare to watch it the entire way through because I was crying too hard. People are so awful.


  4. I have got to try Illamasqua. I hate not having all these make up counters locally but I will def check them out soon. Those cream blushes look gorgeous!! I love that they support the S.O.P.H.I.E campaign! xx

  5. I cried during that video too! I have never bought anything from Illamaqua before and now that i'm out of London it is so much harder to get. Next time i'm home i'm gonna stock up on some of their goodies. I love the look of the creme blushes! x

  6. Thanks for all your lovely comments...As Jennie said lets hope something good comes out of something so so sad xoxo

  7. What a powerful short film! I've heard about Sophie but had never watched this film before. Very moving.


I do love a good comment!
