Obsession Du Jour 10.22.10

Everyone knows about my love affair with Illamasqua, it is no secret.

I have been feeling not so inspired my makeup recently. Everything has been looking very much the same. Mac has been completely disappointing me with their collections and just about everyone else too. Forget NARS, one of my most favorite brands ever just has recently failing to excite me.

I got a lovely surprise email from Alex, whom I am sure you all know. The wonderful Junior Brand Manager and writer of the Illamasqua blog, http://illamasqua.blogspot.com/, wondering if I had checked out the new collection, Art of Darkness. Funnily enough, that day I had JUST ordered Ore Pigment and Resolute Liquid Metal from Sephora. Anyway, She send me a little gift and in it are two of my absolute favorite things for fall currently. The one I will talk about in this post is the 4 liquid metal palette.

I . AM. IN. LOVE.

The colors are absolutely fantastic, especially for someone like me, who is a color phobe! You know I hate cheesey colored eye shadows. HOWEVER, these are so classic and sophisticated. They are dark so they do not scream "hi, i am a 14 year old playing with makeup for the first time".

The formula is great, you can wear on the cheeks, lips or eyes. I have been wearing the red on my lips and it is a perfect deep cranberry. I also am loving the navy on the eyes. It gives the perfect smokey sexy eye. On the eyes, yes they crease, however, I love when cream shadows crease. It gives that rocker sexy look. I am into it.

I also love the gold rubbed onto your cheekbones, makes your skin look metallic and amazing!

Anyway, let me stop babbling and show you!








All my US ladies, go to Sephora and snag this! Very much worth it.

  3. That green is to die for as is the Navy! I'm always into Navy but lately I have been so into deep greens like that. Thanks for the recommendation as always. I would love to see a picture of the smokey eye you do with the Navy if you don't mind.

  9. These are some lovely colors! I tried an emerald green on my eyes last weekend and i absolutely love it. I'm liking jewel tones lately. I think they really suit the lighter skintone I have these days!
    And I'm wearing Navy on my eyes almost every other day...
