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

What a beautiful collection. That nail polish is just superlatively beautiful. I’m really loving the Pink Oyster gloss, too.

(How pretty is that model? She reminds me a bit of Susan Surandon when she was young.)

I got the Metallix in Courtier and the Exquisite lipgloss on the day of release here in the UK because I was so enamoured with this collection. GORGEOUS colour palette. It’s like if Tim Burton did Marie Antoinette, don’t you think?

The promo images are beautiful, but the only thing I can see myself getting is the new lipgloss as I already own Opulent and Naked Rose and don’t wear nail polish or cream eyeshadow.

Those photos of the women look like stills straight out of a Tim Burton film. I’m not saying it’s creepy… but, it’s creepy!! 😮 Illamasqua hasn’t come out with anything these past two years that I’ve found desirable. Maybe I just haven’t given them a fair chance?

I’m such a sucker for period themed stuff! And that nail polish looks GORGEOUS! I really hope you get to review that one *hint hint wink wink…please*

This ad campaign is gorgeous. I’m definitely picking up that nail polish if you give it a good review. It’s a beautiful and unique color. Reminds me of this baroque jacket from bebe I wish I bought from about 10 years back… *reminiscent sigh*

Yes, when I checked to see the price with delivery, my total was $47 and some change. On the website it says if you buy nail polish or perfume, that you have to do premium delivery, which cost around $23 dollars. So it really sucks that this collection is only on their website right now.

Wow!! So beautiful! I love all the promo images. I adore that blush but I am tanned, so it probably won’t look as striking/beautiful on me. I may just get the nail polish instead. For the cream shadows, I’ll wait for your review 😉

Do you know if this will be available online, besides the Illamasqua site? I just can’t handle the $24 premium international shipping (it’s extra for the polish ).

Well, I don’t really care about shipping costs-I need the blush & both glosses! I may as well add in the couple of other items I’ve been eyeing, as well; £50+ is free shipping, and I think everything together willtop that, anyway.

I love all of the promo photos. So quietly beautiful.
I’ve never tried cream shadows from Illamasqua, I hope they are good and longlasting. I really want Courtier. I just wrote that I long for classic creamy red nailpolishes, well I do, but this one is just unbelieveably beautiful. I must have it!

Christine, do you know if Illamasqua is still sold in the US? They seem to have eliminated Illamasqua off of the Bloomingdale’s website and asked in a Bloomingdale’s to them saying that they don’t carry in store. They are my favorite brand but seem to be getting out of the US 🙁

Gorgeous gorgeous. I don’t think those colors will look as good on my own skin tone, but that nail polish is covetable. I love it when Illamasqua do the more unusual shades. And their imagery is always perfect.

The creativity of Alex Box makes me speechless and the Talent (supposed to be capitalized!) of the artists at Illamasqua never, ever ceases to captivate and amaze me. Their visuals are always on and I try to save as many as I can 🙂

Really drawn to the nail varnish! It looks so stunning in the bottle. I wonder if it will translate as beautifully on the nails… 🙂

I really, really want the metallic creme eye shadows (particularly in Embellish & Bibelot as I’m fairly sure I already own a dupe to Courtier) – not to mention the beautiful nail varnish! All despite the fact that it’s Spring where I live…

This is weird, but I feel like I’ve seen promo pics a lot like this before (with the period dresses and with the buttons on the skin the model’s back)…am I going nuts?

I love Illamasqua so much! For Canadian ladies it’s easy to buy on,one through Hudson’s bay/ the Bay! May not be for long though everything was on sale!

Christine, will you be getting and reviewing the eye shadows in this collection? I love them, but with Illamasqua so difficult to come by now, I’d like to get your expert opinion first
