L’Oreal Smoldering Plum Infallible Eyeshadow

L’Oreal Smoldering Plum Infallible Eyeshadow ($7.95 for 0.12 oz.) is a deep, dark, and wickedly intense red-toned burgundy purple with a subtle frosted sheen. It’s a more intense versino of Urban Decay Rockstar. MAC Young Punk is purpler, less burgundy. MAC Dynamic Duo 4 is reminiscent, but less red-toned and matte. MAC Indian Ink is a matte version. Giorgio Armani #2 is slightly richer, blacker, and has red and blue-violet shimmer–so it translates a bit differently. Giorgio Armani #3 has a very reflective sheen that’s more silvery–the purple is a bit grayer, less red-toned.

Illamasqua’s Australia Fight for a Fair Beauty Price

Illamasqua’s Australia Fight for a Fair Beauty Price

We are Illamasqua and we are making a stand against the global giants of cosmetics, who force Australian customers to pay up to 61% more than UK prices. It’s entirely unjust that a woman in the UK pays just $24 for a lipstick, while a woman in Australia has to pay $40 for exactly the same product.

Illamasqua is an independent British colour cosmetics brand and, in the short time we’ve retailed in Australia, we’ve heard time and again your frustration over the inflated pricing of cosmetics compared to the rest of the world.

We have listened and want to slash our prices across our range in Australia. But first we need you to demonstrate to the industry that if we can make this change happen, you’ll commit to buying our products. So please sign your name, make your mark, tell your friends, clench your fist and cry “hell no!”

Rescue Beauty Lounge Jack Nail Lacquer

Rescue Beauty Lounge Jack Nail Lacquer ($20.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a mix of “greens, blues, [and] teals.” It’s an inky, not quite murky, green with a flash of teal and blue-teal iridescence that looks like it’s swirled in the green base color. Urban Decay Mars is similar but lighter and much, much more sparkly/glittery. MAC Deep Sea is darker, less green, and has a cream finish. Rescue Beauty Lounge Teal is blue-teal and has a cream finish. Illamasqua Viridian is more shimmery and less green (more teal). Butter London British Racing Green is greener. MAC Jade Dragon is darker and greener.
