llamasqua Theatre of the Nameless Collection

Descend into the riotous scene of erotic adventure that is THE THEATRE OF THE NAMELESS, nocturnal den of the dissident leaders of underworld subcultures. Exotic dancers rub shoulders with expressionist actors and performers; nudists and Boot Girls openly compete for the Conférencier’s eye; and all participate in the Club’s endless, pleasure-seeking rituals, immersing themselves in a heady world of sensual delight …
Teased by the sweet, pungent tang of opium, the air throbs with the electric shock of lovers’ flesh. Dare to feel the intensity of the club’s intimate caress, and abandon yourself to the glorious wonders of unfettered night-time make-up.
“Theatre Of The Nameless is a heady mixture of opulent hues, decadent pigments and fearless application. A bruised and burnished pallet that gives a sensual slip that bleeds colour into colour, worn through and kissed off.” — Alex Box, Illamasqua Creative Director
Infused with the essence of self-expression that transformed 1920s Berlin, this rich and indulgent collection envelops the senses. Darkly sophisticated tones are accompanied by shocks of dazzling iridescence, creating a breathtakingly modern interpretation of the most illicit nightlife in history.
It’s time to cross the threshold and embrace a world of unadulterated decadence 

  • Illamasqua Morale Powder Blush (£16.50) is a Rosed flush shimmery blush with a sheen to it . It has tiny gold shimmer in it. 

I am pink blush kinda girl .. and i am sure you have read this line more than 100 times on this blog. Dont get me wrong i still like coral / peaches / neutral blushes but nothing perks up my face more than a pink bright blush ( & Kajal ).

Illuminate, radiate, make your face come alive with the colour and drama of Illamasqua Powder Blusher. Colour-intense and highly pigmented, use it to shade, brighten, enhance and define the shape of your face. Be bold, be daring, be the centre of attention.

Some people have complains about lack of mirror Illasmauqa blushe. To be honest i am not bothered since i always keep compact mirror in my purse/handbag and makeup bag. 

Morale Powder Blush is Illamasqua very first shimmer blushes . It is smooth, intensely pigmented, and blends easily. It looks beautiful on my nc 30-35 , since it has sheen to it , it gives me a glow.I wasnt a fan of shimmer blushes until i started and exploring new things. I love to experiment with makeup. The shimmer in the blush is finely milled and it blends easily. The shade looks little bit of fuchsia/magenta in some light. It is so gorgeous. It is nicely pigmented ,I  just swirl my blush brush lightly around in the pan and then tap off the excess,and apply it on my cheekbones or mostly apples of my cheeks. Since i am combo skin so make up hardly stays in this scrooching hot summer but it lasts all day, which is a thumbs up from me. I can see myself wearing it in coming days , since i have so many wedding to attend to and it will gorgeous wornlight handed in the night with some dramatic wedding  eyemakeup.

For  £16.00 , some might think that its tad bit expensive but i don't think this way , for this price we are getting such a high quality pigmented blush, with such nice wide pan so its easy to handle a medium/large brush.
