Illamasqua Once... Collection for Fall 2014
Illamasqua Once… Collection for Fall 2014

The beauty of old and new endures with Once. Decadent & lavish, dabble with rich textures and autumnal, delicate colors, which are conveyed in this exquisite & harmonious fall collection.

“Once is the beauty of the burnished, eroded and erudite. A palette inspired by the gentle and exquisite point when a flower starts to fade and becomes impossibly beautiful in its complex decline. Combined with the subtle opulence of faded gilt layers that reveal themselves the more you blend and search. She is an incandescent moment, a poem alive and a light within a pallet of decaying decadence.” — Alex Box, Creative Director for Illamasqua

Vintage Metallic Eye Shadow ($25.50) (New, Permanent)

  • Courtier Dusky rose
  • Embellish Rich cocoa
  • Bibelot Rustic golden teal
