Illamasqua's New Magenta Muse Collection

Illamasqua is a beauty line that I've only recently become acquainted with.  That said, it's now at the top of my list for makeup products.  The quality in each product is simply amazing.  Everything is highly pigmented and the colors are fabulous.  Their latest Magenta Muse collection contains the following gorgey products:

Cream Pigment - $24
Bring out your bold side with this gloriously rich, extremely pigmented cream. Use to adorn eyes, face and body, and apply with fingers or a brush for a buildable, matt, water-resistant finish. Layer under Illamasqua Powder Eye Shadow for an added intense effect. A highly pigmented new matt formula that can either neutralise or dominate. Create the ultimate in textures whether it’s on your face, eyes, or body, bringing a flash of colour to a subtle contour. This formula provides coverage and adhesion for Powder Eye Shadow and Pure Pigment intensification.

Dab – Matt Lilac
Mould – Matt Grape

Pure Pigment - $24
Made to be played with. A metallic, high-shine, pure-colour powder that highlights eyes, cheeks and brows. Mix with eye shadow, powder blusher or use it on its own to intense effect.  Bring out your bold side.

Android- shimmering gunmetal
Liquid Metal - $26
Prepare to dazzle with this gloriously rich and highly pigmented metallic cream. Use to adorn eyes, face and body, and apply with fingers or a brush. Release your inhibitions and illuminate your alter ego.

Enrapture – Metallic Copper

Powder Blusher - $24
Illuminate and enliven your complexion with the color and drama of Illamasqua Powder Blusher. Color intense and highly pigmented, it can be used to shade, brighten, enhance, and define the shape of your face. Be bold, be daring, and be the center of attention with this matt formula that can either neutralize or dominate. Create the ultimate in textures whether it’s on your face, eyes, or body, bringing a flash of colour to a subtle contour.

Hussy –Bright Petal Pink
Excite – Vibrant Coral

Precision Ink - $27.50
Create looks with attitude. The Precision Ink’s fine tip allows for defined application, making it perfect for use anywhere - on the face or on the body. It dries within seconds and stays true for hours, so whatever you scrawl on your skin, you know your creation will last until dawn.

Glister- Opalescent Nude
Abyss - Gloss Black

Lipstick - $22
Intense Lipstick with a highly pigmented formula that glides on smoothly, creating a statement that one simply cannot look away from.

Test – Matt Pinky Beige
Underworld - Iridescent Violet

Sheer Lipgloss - $20
Come out of the shadows with a high-shine punch of colour. Glossy, intense, and highly pigmented, Illamasqua Sheer Lipgloss is long-lasting, both on the lips and in the mind.

Electrify – Baby Pink Sheen
Tantrum – Deep Violet Sheen

Nail Varnish - $14
Leave your mark with an unexpected claw. Choose from either toxic pastels or unmissable neons. Hardwearing and chip-resistant, they’ll last until you’re ready to try your next favourite in the collection.

Lament - bright coral pink/ glossy finish
DWS - cement gray/ glossy finish
Muse – deep teal blue/ glossy finish
Jo Mina - electric lilac/ glossy finish
Poke - Bright Violet Purple shimmer
Scorn – Matt Black

Personally, I'm a huge fan of the nail varnishes.  The colors are super unique and apply very smoothly to the nail.  Here's a pic of the latest collection:

I love the mix of super bright colors and muted hues.  Each of these colors are flattering on all skintones (even if you might be scared to try it!)

I also LOVE LOVE LOVE the Sheer Lipgloss in Tantrum (a Deep Violet Sheen):

It looks a bit wild, but when you apply it to your lips, it actually goes on as sheer as possible, leaving behind only a trace of purple.  It's enough to make people look twice at your lips, but not in a "what is she thinking?!" sort of way, which is really the ultimate goal with beauty products.

You can pick up your own Illamasqua products at Sephora.
