Illamasqua - The Sacred Hour!

Sunday, 18 August 2013

I'm a tad excitable today because the new Illamasqua* collection, The Sacred Hour, hits the online store tomorrow. It released in Selfridges last week but I just haven't had a chance to get to the Trafford Centre, and I'm too tight to pay their shipping charges - blub! The name, 'The Sacred Hour' apparently refers to two times of the day, dawn and dusk, which are times for inner peace and reflection. I love Illamasqua and I now own quite a few bits and pieces since the store opened in Liverpool's Met Quarter shopping mall. I always try to get something from each collection so I'm excited to pick my fave from this one which will most definitely be Facet nail polish, described as a grey crystal, and looks like a shade I don't actually have a dupe of! 

Until I can get my paws on The Sacred Hour, I'll leave you with a couple of pics of me wearing my fave Illamasqua Intense Lipgloss in Plentiful. My cousin got me their Lip Twin Set for my birthday and although the texture of the Obey lipstick doesn't really float my boat, I just adore this gloss. It's a really flattering peach which instantly warms my skin and lasts for ages despite being super glossy, hurrah! 

I'll be super sad when my tube runs out because I think it's been discontinued, though I'm sure something will turn up on good old Ebay ;)  Are you an Illamasqua fan? Share your recommendations with me please!

J - The only time I'm looking forward to a Monday.
