We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

I was disappointed that there were no blushes or cream pigments.

This was the first time I got on Hautelook right at 8 AM right at the sale opening and every time I went to the Illamasqua link, I got a popup message saying something about it not being up until 8 AM. And it was 8 AM and right after 8 AM and I got this message (and yes, I was signed in). If I didn’t close that popup message window, I could view everything there in a grayed-out way but couldn’t put anything into my cart because I’d get kicked out to the home page. After about 8:07, that message didn’t come up and everything was there to put into my cart. Interestingly, one nail polish color already showed as “On Hold” so apparently this glitch seemed to only affect me.

I can’t decide if I’m sad or not that Melange wasn’t included in the sale… On the one hand, I’ve been pining for Melange since you reviewed it last year… On the other hand, most of the popular colors were already sold out or ‘on hold’ by the time I made it to the sale and I think seeing Melange and not being able to add it to my cart would have been even more devastating.

I did manage to snag Hemlock though, which had been on my Sephora wishlist when Illamasqua pulled out


I have been complaining about not being able to purchase Illamasqua without paying ridiculous fees and I see this update today. Bless you! I ordered 7 bottles including Cameo which I’ve wanted forEVER.

Thank you for the heads-up – I ordered a bottle of Lament, and one of Superstition. I adore Illamasqua’s formula, and my favorite polish of all-time is Raindrops. I was hoping for Pink Raindrops and Throb but they were in ‘On Hold’ status for too long and my patience ran out. Can’t wait to add the two I bought to my collection!

Thanks for the heads up, Christine! 🙂

I’ve been looking for venous and cameo (nail polishes) since forever. The whole line has been discontinued in Canada I think. I remember them being on a 40% off sale at the Bay but they had very little variety/shades to choose from. Might even snag a lipstick or two. Atomic is gorgeous!

Argh, I just placed a huge order with Illamasqua, and I had to pay $20 shipping because when you order nail polish you have to select the international priority shipping–you can’t do the free shipping. Is there any US-based retailed that still carried Illamasqua on a regular basis? I know they are no longer at either Sephora or Bloomingdales, and Google Shopping didn’t come up with anything.

The one day I don’t check my email….but not a total loss, I ordered 7 polishes this morning; however, I really wanted Raindrops and Pink Raindrops. Hope there’s a next time.

I’ve been trying to find Creator lately because it’s the first polish I’ve ever run out of! Almost every polish I have chips so badly on my nails but I continue to buy my favorites like zoya pixie dust even though I know it won’t last 3 days! Illamasqua is the first and only brand I’ve gotten 5+ days of wear. As others have said, I too was upset that sephora doesn’t carry them any more :(. Thanks so much for posting this!!!
