I'm sorry I kept you hanging for so long - I was just busy, picking up the trash. =)
So, as I already said: I got a wonderful package from Illamasqua. I didn't really expect it, because they have their own blog and they ''don't believe'' in this kind of advertisement. I respect that... but then I got this beautiful, edgy box of Illamasqua goodies! =)
All products are from the new Body Electrics collection for Spring/Summer 2010.
Don't you just love the Body Electrics promo picture? Biiiiijutiful!
Someone was also excited to open the box. Sorry Aishila, nothing for you in there...
* Nail Varnish in Jo'mina
* Illumine Oil in Pulse
* Liquid Metal Palette
* Bronzer in Writhe
I didn't expect to get so many goodiess. *faints*
I have one of the products to show you today. Illamasqua Nail Varnish in Jo'mina.
This color is amazing and I mean AMAZING. It's not your typical lilac shade. It's pastel, but so bright... really hard to capture on camera and hard to describe too. I have some lilacs in my collection, but most of them are really different from this one. This color is pure WIN. =)
Illamasqua, Jo'mina, 2 coats
I adore the color and the packaging, but there's a different story with the application. I'm not saying it's bad, 'cause that's not the case. It's just average, but on the good side. Not perfect though (you must be so confused right now). =D
Ok, here's the thing. I remember reading a review about their polishes and some girl (can't really remember whose review it was) said the formula is ''out of this world'', perfect and what not. I wouldn't agree with that, but it's a good polish nonetheless.
So, why don't I absolutely love it? It's a bit streaky. You can see it on my index finger. The opacity is good, so the polish only needs 2 coats, but because of the bald spots I'd have to apply another layer of polish.

In the shade:
Maybe the application isn't worth paying 13 GBP for, but the color definitely is. Did I already tell you, that I love this shade? =D
Well, that's all from me and Illamasqua for today. I'll show you the other products in the next few days. So, tell me: do you own any Illamasqua products? If so: do you love, like, hate it? Are you planning on getting Illamasqua? What products? Tell me! =)
Thanks for looking!
