Illamasqua Morale Powder Blush - Review, Photos & Swatch

Illasmaqua Shimemr blush in morale is part of the llamasqua Theatre of the Nameless Collection

There are two shimmer blushes in the new collection 
Shimmer Blusher £16.50
  • Ambition (Neutral)
  • Morale (Rosed Flush)

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.

Below swatch was taken in day light 

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.

You can order Illamasqua through Sephora website in the US or illamasqua online store  If you order before this Sunday 18th September, ALL international orders over £40 will receive FREE delivery :)

Bio-Oil, Good-bio to Stretch Marks ?

Any women on the planet who says that she wouldn’t race down the high street naked to get her hands on a wonder product that banishes stretch marks and scars is a liar. As yet though, there really is no such product that exists. Although those clever boffins that mix their
potions in a lab to help us through the pains of being a women have brought us some pretty good products. Luckily for us, they came up with the next best thing to a wonder product. When Bio-Oil was first launched and marketed as a product that would eliminate stretch marks and give us all clear, youthful skin, of course us women were collectively sceptical.

A few years on though, thousands of real life testers having used the sweet smelling oil as a bath soak,as a skin shiner and as massage oil even, we can finally put some faith in the oily orange liquid. The feedback that Bio-Oil gets as a skin tonic is not to be sniffed at.

What goes in it?

The oil is made from a mix of essential oils, botanicals, and vitamins which are designed to work together to repair and revitalise the skin all over the body. When the product was first introduced to the beauty industry as a multi purpose ‘skin tonic’, there was scepticism as to whether a product really could be used for more than one skin complaint. Relying on reports form previous users of the oil, it seems that it is very possible indeed.

What to do with it?

There is no rule book attached to a bottle of Bio-Oil; use it however you wish. Put a few drops into your bath, use it as moisturising oil for your whole body, or focus on areas that need to be treated –whatever feels right for you. Do use the oil often though; most users have reported that they have been able to see a difference in the appearance of their skin after around two months of everyday use.

What’s the best thing about B-Oil?

It’s affordable and it smells delicious!

Wet n Wild Haul

I was checking out a blog sale few days before eid, and that blog sale had a wet n wild eyeshadow lot for $12+shipping. I thought it was an excellent deal , since ebay is insanely expensive ( e:g 8 pan palette for $8?) .best part was that almost all of them were brand new and sealed. I grabbed those hoping that they will reach me safe and sound. Guess what i got the dayafter eid holidays ?

One thing i liked best about this lot was that it had almost everything i wanted to try , like an 8 pan eyeshadow palettes, some trios & a 6 pan eyeshadow palette.
anyways this is what i got :

  • Wet 'n' Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Collection - Petal Pusher (736)
contains eight eyeshadows spread over two columns .The tone of the palette is rather cool, with the first column being purple themed and the second column being more earth-toned.

  • Wet n Wild Color Icon palette in Pride
contains six eyeshadows–three matte eyeshadows and three shimmery eye shadows. It a cool-toned palette of white, green/teal, and blue

  • Wet n Wild Color Icon Eye Shadow Trio
The trios i got are as below
  1. I Dream of greenie
  2. I got good jeans
  3. Silent Treatment

Each trio contains three complementary shades in longwearing, blendable colors. Shades are embossed with “eyelid,” “crease,” and “browbone” to provide an easy “how to” guide.

  • I Dream of Greenie:
Frosty light seafoam green shimmer
Satin matte mid-tone green with fine gold sparkle
Satin matte lime green with fine gold sparkle

  • I Got Good Jeans:
Metallic steel gray shimmer
Shimmery navy blue with violet-blue flash
Metallic mustard gold shimmer
  • Silent Treatment:
Frosty light peach shimmer
Dark brown matte with gold sparkle
Taupe shimmer with rose-gold sheen

I cant explain how excited i was when i opened the parcel, my hands were shaking with excitement when I was opening the seals, it came in like ten days and everything was packed so well. Nothing was shattered & broken. The eyeshadows are so soft and prone to shattering if not handled with care. As you can see few my mine got nicked here and there when i wasnt careful . I can not to get my hands on more.

I'll review these palettes in detail& most probably do some EOTD. Let me know if there is any palette you want to see swatches of , although there are millions already :)
