Long time no post! :) I have just got back from a wonderful 2 weeks in the US and slowly adjusting back to reality!
Before i left i received a couple of products from the new Illamasqua Generation Q Collection. I love the message behind this collection that 'beauty is not young, old, black, white, male or female, but anything, everything and everyone'.
Its quite a small collection with 12 products in total including 2 eyeshadow palettes in Empower and Complement, 2 blushes in Sophie and Allure, 1 Gleam highlight in Aurora, 2 nail varnishes in Creator and Charisma, 2 lipglosses in Boost and Opulent, 2 lipsticks in Magnetism and Underworld and 1 precision ink eyeliner in Wisdom.
I received the Gleam Highlight in shade 'Aurora', Nail Varnish in Creator and Precision Ink Eye Liner in Wisdom.
Gleam is back by popular demand and is a solid, cream compact highlight in the shade Aurora which is described as champagne. It has a iridescent finish and can be used on the face and body. It comes in the same compact as the cream and powder brushes and i have been using this above my cheekbones and on my brow bone.
The Nail Varnish in Creator is described as Magical Black and it is packed with silver glitter. It reminds me of one of the OPI polishes that came out with the Nicki Minaj collection that i didnt actually pick up so im glad to have this.
I am a massive fan of the Illamasqua Precision Ink Eye Liners especially the black one as it just doesnt budge at all and is seriously black and this shade in wisdom that is described as antiqued gold is no exception. It is simply beautiful and long lasting. Again it can be used anywhere on the face and body, not just for eyes and would make a fab nail art pen!
Overall i am in absolute in love with the collection, Illamasqua seriously never ever fails to impress me with their collections. I need to get my hands on the Sophie powder blush which is a shimmer (love!) and is a gorgeous coral shade! For me from the products i have received i cant get enough of the Gleam highlight compact.
The Generation Q Collection is available to buy now from Illamasqua Counters and online at illamasqua.com.
