This Valentines, Illamasqua are celebrating with their new, special collection called I’m The One!” For personal reasons this is a collection I will most certainly never forget. 

I had the most amazing opportunity to be part of this Valentine’s campaign photo-shoot by assisting Illamasqua’s legendary creative director Alex Box. This amazing opportunity was the prize for winning the Distinction in Make-up Artistry Award last October. 
To work with Alex Box was a dream come true, therefore this mini collection will always have a very special place in my heart. You can imagine the excitement when the collection arrived in the post last week! 
As soon as I opened the package I fell in love with the products immediately, i especially couldn’t wait to wear the lipgloss after seeing Alex use it on set!
___________________________________________________________________
The mini collection includes:
A NEW Red Lipgloss (Shade: Touch) £14.50
The Illamasqua intense lip-glosses are essential in my make-up kit. This is one of my favourite items in the collection due to it’s highly pigmented formula and high shine finish. I love the shimmer infused in the pigment which makes those lips pop instantly! Try layering ‘Touch’ on top of Maneater lipstick included in this collection for a an extra powerful red lip this Valentines. 
A NEW Lipliner (Shade: Feisty) £14.00
A classic red lip liner matches perfectly with Maneater. The formula of the lipliner is soft and creamy but firm enough to help you draw the perfect red lip liner ready for lipstick application! The lipliner can also be worn alone for a creamy matte red lip!
An existing Nail Polish (Shade: Throb) £14.50
A perfect cherry red shade, which will be perfect for your Valentines date! The polish has cool undertones and applies evenly in one stroke. The pigmentation is excellent with minimal drying time. 
An existing Red Lipstick (Shade: Maneater) £16.50
‘Maneater’ is a gorgeous wearable classic matte red lipstick. With a 50’s feel it provides a vintage, classy and sophisticated look to your pout this Valentines! 
Pair your red pout with a sleek cat eye & flirty lashes for a classic 
Valentine’s look that is sure to knock him off his feet! Mwah…
The collection is available now at Illamasqua stores and online.

Guest Blog Takeover featuring Liza Prideaux & Bourjois

Hello Dolls my name is Liza and I blog over at www.glambeautys.com I am very excited to be Karla’s very first guest blogger, it is a huge honour and I hope you enjoy the post I’ve written for you all!

 

I have a little lipstick treat for you today just in time for Valentines Day. This is the perfect shade to really make your lips pop and get that gorgeous guys attention! With Valentines day is on its way I was looking through my lip gloss and lipstick collection I realised I didn’t really have many pink shades, especially Hot pink so here we are today with Bourjois Shine Edition Lipstick in the shade 22-Famous Fuchsia. This is actually my second lipstick from the Shine Edition range the lipsticks are gorgeous and I really adore wearing them. 

 

Many would assume these are like the Revlon lip butters, they look pretty similar and the packaging doesn’t differ much either but I have to say this is my favourite with regards to formula. The formula of this lipstick is soft, creamy and super pigmented. They offer a high shine finish and your lips really feel nourished once applied. The colour itself is a super vibrant pink which is just gorgeous and so perfect for Valentines, if your a little worried about the vibrancy of the colour don’t worry because it can be worn more sheer if applied with a lip brush so you can achieve a softer look for day time then really make them pop for that special date in the evening. 

 

The packaging is a little summery for this time of year but the silver exterior does go with the High Shine name so I guess they are keeping it uniform. I believe there are 7 shades to choose from which isn’t huge, I hope they decide to bring out more later on this year because I adore these lipsticks and now want them all. 

 

Overall great lipstick and fantastic formula, I can’t wait to buy more! What are your thoughts on the colour is it something you’d wear?

 

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this post, I hope you enjoyed it and don’t forget to come on over and say Hi. I have a YouTube channel which I’d love you to come and see. I upload every Sunday and sometimes I like to give you a bonus video as a treat so what are you waiting for!

NEW Lime Crime Liquid Lipstick in Shade Pink Velvet … 

Most of my followers know I am a huge fan of Lime Crime’s Red Velvet Liquid Lipstick and use it on most of all my make-up jobs (when required a red lip) so, every time Lime Crime tease me with a new product releasing on their social media I sit and wait patiently for them to be available online in the UK from www.cocktailcosmetics.co.uk! I have been so excited to try this NEW pink shade and couldn’t wait to blog about it.

The NEW Pink Velvet shade is a bright pink with blue undertones, meaning it suits most skin tones. Reflecting different shades of the pink in different lighting. It goes neon pink in the day light and a deep pink with red undertones in the evenings! Just magic in my eyes :)

Benefit’s of Lime Crime’s NEW Pink Velvet shade:

*Applies smoothly, thin, like a gloss which offers you the chance to glide the product over the lips evenly with your favourite lip brush - however, it sets into a matte, velvet texture! 

*Gives a beautiful even finish. Similar, to some of my favourite MAC matte lipsticks ( Ruby Woo). Achieving that perfect retro finish with a non-drying finish to the lips. 

*This liquid-to-lipstick consistency has a lasting finish on the lips, with an amazing lip stain finish, meaning there’s no need to worry about the constant application of this product.  I just apply regularly apply to the centre of the lips after eating and drinking. 

Removal of Lime Crime’s Pink Velvet shade: 

Lime Crime advised me on Instagram how to remove Pink Velvet correctly, by using a waterproof make-up remover, lip balm and vaseline. This shade sure didn’t budge! So leaves a slight stain to the lips. So for those make-up artists using on a photoshoot and you require a lip change I would use the Velvetine’s till last. My favourite oil-based remover for stubborn lipsticks is Elemis White Flowers eye and lip make-up remover. 

In the UK Lime Crime’s NEW Pink Velvet retails at £13.50 available on Cocktail Cosmetics. Or if you are from the U.S you can buy their products on Lime Crime’s shop website.

Do you own the new Pink Velvet yet?

Perfect Skin with Kryolan’s NEW Highlighter- Illusion. 

Highlighters in my make-up kit are my key products to change any beauty looks. If of course applied correctly, it gives you that glowing look where people can’t place what’s different, just that you look amazing in life and on camera.

When you’re choosing a highlighter you have to think about skin tone; sallow skin, pink toned highlighters are going to stick out, pale skin pink tones are perfect. The goal when applying highlighter is to get a reflective dewy look that makes you look like you have youthful, healthy skin. If the product you are using gives your skin a slight sheen you’ve got it right, if you look covered in glitter  try again.

There are three main areas you should apply highlighter: the cheekbones and temples, the eyes, and the Cupid’s bow. If you apply your foundation with your favourite foundation brush, I always use that same brush to apply highlighter on the cheekbones. The product remaining on your brush will help with the blending process. I have many different highlighting products in kit- from cream,powder and liquid forma, and many from Kryolan such as Glamour Glow, Glamour Sparks and Shimmering Event Foundation where I sometimes mix in with my Illamasqua Skin base for an all over dewy skin effect on fashion photo-shoots. 

Illusion, is a lightweight and versatile gloss highlighting cream in a golden shade tone suiting most skin tones, which has a long-lasting smooth finish with a supple non- greasy or oily residue finish. Illusion in Velvet gives a beautiful luminous glow without the skin looking shiny when photographed.  Illusion can be easily applied and blended onto the skin using a brush, fingers or a sponge.

Illusion in shade Velvet, £15.75 can be purchased at Kryolan’s London store, Charles Fox, Covent Garden, and other outlets across the UK. Please visit www.kryolan.com for stockist details.

Many more colours will be available soon. 

Which is your favourite highlighter in your make-up kit?
