My First Illamasqua Haul
Illamasqua has for long been a brand on my wishlist. Totally smitten with its sleek black packaging and raving nail polish and blusher reviews, I so wanted to try it. Their shipping to Europe is kinda expensive and I could never justify the price to myself. I am such a bargain hunter ladies. So you all can picture my delightful screaming face when Illasmasqua announced a 50% sale on everything the day they reached 50k Twitter followers. Getting Illasmasqua half-price was like an early birthday!
Unfortunately some of the blushers I wanted to try were out of stock. Imaginable, when people all over the world are filling their carts like crazy. I ordered four things, one of which was Illamasqua Powder Blusher in 'Tremble'. It probably got out of stock later or their website could not update the quantity, so it wasn't dispatched but I was very nicely refunded and all.
It has been over a week since I received this package but I am crazy busy with moving house right now, everything got stuffed deep down in boxes, except for my everyday makeup items that I didn't have a chance to properly try any thing. Don't worry, reviews will be up soon! So onto what I received. I am mentioning their original prices. I am sure you can all do the rest of the maths. Oh I also reached their free shipping limit in this order teehee.
1. Illamasqua Lipstick in 'Scandal' - £16.50 / €19.73
2. Illasmasqua Powder Blusher in 'Hussy' - £18.00 / €21.53
3. Illamasqua Under Eye Concealer in '200' - £13.00 / €15.55
Overall, even without getting a chance to try anything, I am super-happy with my stuff.
Did any of you avail the the Illamasqua Twitter50 sale?
