On Saturday just gone, my parents came up to see me at my uni house! It was so lovely to see them and we went on a day out to the Trafford Centre, stopping at Costco inbetween for a little shop and a slice of pizza, yum!
Walking around the trafford, me and my mum had a nose in all the shops, I didn't really see anything exciting for myself but I made sure we stopped in Selfridges for a look around the beauty counters. I went into MAC to have a look at the Daphne Guinness collection, and then as always, Illamasqua caught my eye.
I love the stand, and I always get excited when I see the smashed mirrors and the uniqueness of the products. The lady on the counter started talking to me about how she loved my hair (red with a slice of orange) and how I'd really suit their products. She wanted to give me a bright red lip but I had to go for tea, and daddy was waiting. I tried a few swatches and off we went.
After we'd finished shopping (they were buying Sophie's 21st birthday present (she got herself 2 Pandora charms 1 from my mum&dad, 1 from my brother)) I mentioned to my mum that I wanted to go back to Illamasqua as I was thinking of treating myself to something.
I had another swatch of the Berber Pure Pigment and I knew it had to be! My mum then said she'd buy it for me and I was so excited - my first Illamasqua product, yay!
And here it is:
I am in LOVE with this colour, and I cannot wait to try it out on a few make up looks!
I hope you like too! Let me know in the comments if you've ever tried Illamasqua or any dupes?
