Illamasqua Makeup I’m An Addict….

Illamasqua make upAs a make up junkie I get addicted to trying new things. I am not a brand slave and will happily try out new products as they hit the market and see what the fuss is about.  I have my beauty essentials in my huge carry case that serve me well.  My MAC Mineralize Blusher I would never leave home without as I adore the texture and lightweight feel to this blush as well as the fact I can build up coverage depending on whether I am going out for an evening date or just off to work.

macbannerOne beauty brand that I have coveted over for a long time is British make up brand Illamasqua. Now not many people have heard of the brand, but once you try just one product you are literally hooked.  Not only is their packaging gorgeous coming in sleek glossy black boxes but the products are high quality, long lasting and in the case of the eyeshadows absolutely amazing to work with.
