As always, Illamasqua's long hyped up new collection for Spring Summer 2012 has finally been released.

It's full of gorgeous teals, plenty of purples and a dash of pastel brights.


Human Fundamentalism is an explosion of your alter ego. It's becoming who you are and not who you're told to be. Because beauty isn't conformity, but the fundamental human desire to express your inner self on the outside.

Rise above mainstream limitations and exist in a world where individuality is received with celebration not derision, and breaking the mould is a sign of strength not invisibility.

We stand for freedom of expression, embracing our glorious imperfections and  showing the world we're not ordinary but extraordinary, even if society refuses to accept it.

We're beyond conformity. Beyond control. Beyond hiding who we really are. We are not a religion, but the singular opposite.

We are Illamasqua.

Eyeshadows in Pivot (yellow green), Burst (blue green) and Vernau (yellow ochre).

I received 3 eyeshadows and a sealing gel. I already have the latter and I adore it, it's the perfect way to turn your favourite eyeshadow into a long lasting liquid eyeliner.

These matte eyeshadows are the first I've tried from Illamasqua. I was always a bit wary of them. I have a couple of matte shadows from other brands and find them to be a bit chalky.

Whilst these are completely flat, they don't take too much work in getting an opaque colour, as shown above. That's just a couple swipes straight onto dry skin.

I would have purchased Pivot and Burst, those colours are so me. Vernau? Not so much. I'm wondering the best combination to try and use this. If you have any ideas, do let me know as I'm not used to working with such colours.

You can check out the collection here. There's 3 other eyeshadows, a black, white and gorgeous pastel lilac - which will be mine!

I've been wanting an opaque white liner for ages. I got a Fluidline a few years ago from M.A.C but it was horrible to apply. I use my Abyss Precision Ink in most of my looks so I will be picking up the new addition in Scribe which is a pure white.

I also have my eye on the teal lipstick used in some of the promo images called Apocalips.

Have you shopped this collection yet? What did you think?

I am definetly prefering this over the Winter Theatre Of The Nameless.
