Illamasqua Envy 2013 Collection–Review & Swatches!

When the Envy collection from Illamasqua landed on my doorstep in December it felt like Christmas had come early.  Since then I have loved and cherished each product from this collection and so wanted to share them with you.


Fatale Palette £34 – Containing 4 powder shadows, this is Christmas in a palette. The deep cranberry, purple shades work stunningly with the golden and brown to create the most intense winter smokey eye. These shadows are intensely pigmented and great quality as all Illamasqua shadows are!

Nail Varnish in Blizzard £14.50 – I’ve worn this multiple times already since getting it, layering it atop of other darker polishes (I paired it with a classic red for Christmas day!) and it’s really pretty.  It’s a clear base which contains small freckles of creamy white specs which resembles snow on the nails.

Sculpting Powder Duo £26 – As soon as I opened the box this went straight into my makeup bag. The blush duo contains two shades; a neutral brown shade for contouring and sculpting and a neutral golden for adding a bit of highlight and definition. These powders are very finely milled and pigmented meaning the tinest bit of product gives you gorgeous definition.  I can not get enough of this product – it’s my favourite of the range, compliments my pale skin perfectly and makes me cheekbones look amazing!

Intense Lipgloss in Maiden £14.50 – You guys know I’m not one for nail polishes but this shade is utterly perfect.  It’s a creamy, peach toned pink nude which looks lovely and natural over any lipstick or on it’s own.

From what I can see, the range is still available in stores and on the Illamasqua website: LINK!  Do let me know if you have any of these products and how you like to use them!

Are you an Illamasqua fan?  What are your favourite products of theirs?

    I never tried anything from Illamasqua, but my wishlist is so long and now it's even longer!! 😀
    I am very curious about their lipsticks and eyeshadow quads:D

    I've had my eye on the quad for a good few months now because the shades are just stunning. I might just treat myself for having been so good with money all month :o) Xx

    That duo looks amazing! I'm still getting the hang of contour but that seems like one of the more flattering shades to wear. Thanks for reviewing these products Katie!

    I'm not so much a fan of this collection as I have been of others but the eyeshadow palette is gorgeous and the sculpting powder duo is one of my favourite additions to my kit of late!

    I am quite smitten with the Sculpting Powder Duo. I will be lurking at the nearest counter for that I think. I am un-naturally pale; I think could be workable even with my skin tone. Thank you for the blog.

    I like the look of pretty much everything in this collection. Bit too expensive for me though 🙁
