Illamasqua Volt Illumine Oil
Illamasqua Volt Illumine Oil

Less Bronze, More Galactic

Illamasqua Volt Illumine Oil (£32.00 for 100ml) is the same lovely formula as Pulse, but it gives off a very different look. This look is less sun goddess and more moon goddess–it’s a mix of iridescent blue and violet and white shimmer. I think this would be especially beautiful on those with cooler skin tones, because it will really set them off. Less coconutty scent, more general tropics feel–again, doesn’t seem to linger on me.

    I’m pretty sure I’m not nuts, but did you accidentally put the picture of Pulse up instead of Volt?

    i dunno, the effect in your swatch isn’t very noticeable! for me this is a quite unnecessary product!

    I kind of just want to run to the nearest Sephora and slather myself in it.
    It’s so futuristic and shimmery!

    What a lovely idea! I tend to get annoyed by all of the bronze illuminating products, because I don’t like how it looks on me. But a different illuminating finish like this would be beautiful. Thank you for the swatch!
    How do you feel about the amount for the price?

    • I can’t imagine getting through a bottle myself, so it’ll last for awhile – given that it IS a high-end brand, the price isn’t too high, and again, you don’t need much!

    I wonder if this will help my pale legs look not so stark white in shorts or if the shimmer will just illuminate them more. :/
