love that lip color. wish sephora carried the 100 foundation. anyone have feedback on the illamasque liquid/cream foundation? it sounds like a bottle covers well & lasts forever.

I hope they decide to sell it at Sephora; my December Illamasqua package has been delayed overseas because of bad weather and I don’t know if I can wait yet again.

is that a brown nail varnish?
if so, the cream and that one look like chocolates!! 😀 which makes sense if it is a valentines’ collection.

great collection image there… looks a bit retouched to hell but the idea is still phenomenal 🙂

I love it but the lipstick was already sold out on the website 24 hours after the launch, and I’m afraid they won’t re-stock it, will they?
Too bad we don’t get illamasqua in here…

yeah, also has a bit of alice in wonderland, I’m thinking it’s not your day to day makeup but lots of potential for interesting touches like an detail or accent here or there.

must be building on some MUFE dracula contest pics, I’m having a lot of ideas

Oh Christine, don’t tempt me! Illamasqua recently pulled out from Ireland, closing all their counters 🙁 I’m devastated! This looks beautiful

i thought the name was amusing. kind of like NARS orgasm or urban decay’s drug related product names.

i wish i could get into illamasqua. i tried liking their products but either the color was way off (their blush) or the formula was too drying (their lipsticks).

Fear not Americans, according to the website you can still buy all of the Throb Collection goodies online. Love love LOVE the promo shot, but I have so many red Illamasqua lipsticks and don’t wear nail polish…think I’ll pass on this one!

Has anyone else from the US ordered from their website- and if so, do you know how much shipping is? I know that their items are cheaper ordered online at Illamasqua.com than from Sephora.com, but not sure if the shipping is worth it.

Haha, I love the names. Such a European/British humor, I adore it. And the collection is gorgeous, I will definitely try to get the lipgloss and the red nail varnish.

Red lips and red nails. Ok, where is the news? I know that creating something original for each collection is difficult… but I think this kind of red is the most used, most duped, most boring colour in the entire story of make up. Moreover, I HATE it.

I am super angry at Illamasqua I wanted to see how much the difference between pounds and US dollars before I confirmed my payment through paypal for the Load Nail Varnish… BUT that didnt happen instead of letting me see my final payment and click confirm it went straight to the confirmation payed saying I payed 80 DOLLARS FOR THREE NAIL VARNISHES. Thats not even the worst part they refused to cancel my order and give me a refund…. Now they say that I need to send it back to them when I recieve it which is really annoying because I would have to pay a HUGE shipping fee!!! So I am officially stuck with 3 bottles of Load nail varnish LOL. I am just mainly angry at the service…never buying from them ever again… I feel very silly because I know I could of googled for conversions of pounds to US dollars but I was expecting that paypal would be the same. Just shocked to see such poor service from such a great brand =(

I did buy the lipstick called Sangers, only because I walked into the Illamasqua shop in London and asked them what red lipstick did they recommend for my skintone, and the MUA in there said ‘The new one called Sangers’. I did try it on in the shop with my own MAC Mahogany lip pencil, which is one of my faves, and it was perfect.

I bought the Sangers lipstick and wore the lipstick all day and got nothing but good glances from men and women, double takes, and a lot of respect.

I really want to get this collection.  I need to do a few final projects for my cosmetic and make up courses that I am working on.  I think that this would help me get all of my projects done.  I am excited to try this out.
