Illamasqua launched its new collection- EQUINOX in October, inspired from the mystical starry desert nights, this collection includes an eyeshadow quad with four gorgeous metallic shades, a nail varnish, a pair of dramatic false eyelashes, a deep red Glamore lipstick & Broken Gold. This collection is inspired by a “desert at night, engulfed by the starry skies and the constellations of the universe above”, the mystic collection features rich broken golds, deep burnished hues and glittering pigments that suit all skin tones.
Today I’m with two pieces from this outstanding collection.
It’s is the centre of the collection. It has four cream to powder eye shadows.
There are 4 eyeshadows in Illamasqua Celestial Palette-
Quell- It’s a champagne shimmer that can be used as a perfect highlighter.
Solace- This shade is a burnished industrial grey. It’s a beautiful shade for creating a smoky eye makeup.
Jubilance- It’s a polished warm copper that will give a gorgeous festive effect.
Orb- It’s an iridescent barely black. You can creat some beautiful eye makeup combining with different shades.
Illamasqua Nail Varnish- Beam
The another jewel from the collection is the nail varnish in Beam. The collection consists of three nail paints altogether, two permanent and one new addition. Beam is a pearly gold shade nail paint with pearlised gold shimmer.It’s a perfect golden shade that is some kind of duo chrome shade as in some lights it can look more on the blue or lilac side. It’s neither too dull nor too sparkly. If you are a gold shade lover like me but hesitate in wearing shimmery gold on your nails, this nail paint is an ideal shade of gold for you.
In the mirror of my own experience
When I got the collection, I was excited to try the products especially the Celestial palette but I had to wait for almost one month due to Muharram. Now I have tried the palette and am totally ready to share my experience with these two products. The Celestial palette comes in a beautiful and classy packaging for which Illamasqua is well known.It contains four shades in it like other Illamasqua palettes. The first two shades Quell and Solace have creamy and satin texture and finish. You can create a beautiful smokey eye makeup with the combination of both shades. The other two Jubilance and Orb have a shimmering texture. Both shades are full of some fine glitter particles that look beautiful.You’ll really love these shades for Christmas.
I love all four shades, but my favorites are Jubilance and Solace. I would love to apply these two again and again. The texture and finish of all shades are amazing. They all are highly pigmented and look beautiful alone and mixed together. The best part of these shadows is that I didn’t see any fallout while applying and blending them. Totally a winner product of this collection. The Nail Varnish in Beam is also a one of the attractive parts of the Equinox collection. Love the packaging which is very beautiful with the outer carton & the shape of the bottle has been always my favorite. Then comes the texture which is also very impressive. The varnish is slightly thin & 2 coats are a must to get the perfect shade. After it dries up it gives a gorgeous pearly finish to the nails! The shade is a perfect golden shade that can be applied anytime and anywhere. It dries so quickly which is another plus point.
Overall it’s another interesting collection from Illamasqua. I have used only two products from it but these are the fascinating ones that I wanted to try when I first saw this collection. I’m glad that the quality of both products is as high as expected. The palette is the main attraction of the collection that has some really beautiful shade shadows with a superior quality finish that you would like to have in your makeup box. I think this collection will be THE gift for Christmas. I’ll recommend this palette to all my readers. If you’re looking for some shadows to see you through the festive season, you need to check this out as it’s amazingly versatile.
