Powder Blusher
4.5 g/ 0.15 oz
£21.50 on 
Naked Rose (permanent)

Illuminate, radiate, make your face come alive with the colour and drama of Illamasqua Powder Blusher. Colour-intense and highly pigmented, use it to shade, brighten, enhance and define the shape of your face. Be bold, be daring, be the centre of attention.

This formulation can provide up to four to five variations of the same shade depending on how lightly or intensely it is applied. Use wet for a bolder colour pay-off, and it can also double up as an eye shadow. Apply using Blusher Brush 1 for colour on the centre of the cheeks, or using angled Blusher Brush 2 for more definition and contouring.

Nail Varnish
15 ml
£14.50 on

Award winning and chip-resistant with individual finishes from matt to high gloss. Apply two coats for intensity, and use with Illamasqua Nail Base Coat and Nail Top Coat for the perfect finish.

For application, try the 3 line technique: First wipe off the brush at the bottleneck of the nail varnish bottle; the brush must be covered evenly with product and must not drip. The first line of nail varnish is applied in the middle of the nail, from the cuticle to the nail top, in a long, soft line. The second line goes on one side of the nail and the third line on the other side. This guarantees even distribution of the shade. Additional layers may be applied to suit coverage desired.

NEW from BH Cosmetics: Wild Palettes

BH Cosmetics got some new goodies to offer us! Three new baked eyeshadow palettes that will help you explore your wild side! Each palette has nine baked shadows for only $8.95 (reg $19.95) right now! I can't even take my eyes off of Wild Child - all my favourite colours in one freakin palette! I can't comment on the quality as I don't have these palettes (yet) nor have I ever tried any BH Cosmetics baked shadows. 

NEW from Laura Mercier: Smoky Eye Palette Nude

Oh look another nude eye shadow palette! I mean I guess it's exciting...but to be honest I'm somewhat over every single brand coming out with their nude palettes. To be fair though, this new palette from Laura Mercier does look like it has all the quintessential you need. A matte cream shade for under your eyebrow or on your lid, a matte mid tone brown transition shade for your crease, a shimmer mid-tone shade for all over your lid, a matte medium neutral brown for your outer V or all over your lid for a smokey eye and of course a matte dark brown (almost black) shade for your outer V, deepen up any eye look or even line your lids.
