Illamasqua Haul and NOTD

Like the majority of the blogging world, I decided to order some Illamasqua products when they had their 50% off sale to celebrate 50,000 Twitter followers.

I hummed and hawwed but decided on an eyeshadow palette called 'Complement' and a nail polish called 'Cameo'. I had quite a bit of difficulty actually getting these to checkout due to the number of people on the site, but thankfully got the order finalised as the offer closed.

I used Parcel Motel to avail of free UK shipping. It arrived a week after I placed my order. I wasn't in much of a rush to receive it so that was ok. Since I also bought another palette recently, today was the first day I was able to try the stuff out.

I went for a purpley palette as most stuff I have is in the brown, bronze, black family. The top right hand colour is more of a cream which I wasn't expecting. It has a light scent when in the palette, almost like a vanilla.





Here is how I decided to wear the colours. Unfortunately I have quite shallow lids so it's hard to see anything except what I did above the crease!







I also decided to try my new nail polish, 'Cameo'. It's a cornflower blue, slightly more pastel than Nails Inc Baker St for example.



I put it on my nails and then decided it might look nice with some China Glaze Fairy Dust. I took some photos before applying the glitter topcoat and before cleaning up at the cuticles to show you the colour on its own.



Then I added the sparkley topcoat. This is one of these 'colours' that makes everything look better! :) It's hard to photograph the holo well, it looks really fun under bright lights or direct sun. 






Hope you enjoyed the haul and NOTD!

    Love that china glaze top coat as well! Makes the blue look super luxe and stand out!

    1. Thanks, I've been meaning to try out a purple for a while! I actually got my order in after 5 but the discount code was applied before 5 so thankfully it went through. Spent a good 30 mins trying!
