Illamasqua Art of Darkness Collection♥

You all are aware about the Art of Darkness the latest collection released from Illamasqua I did a post about the launch a while back. But I want to show you the products that the every so kind Alex sent me to try from the collection. I loved the deep jewel tones and the rich colours, very dark and mysterious much like the imagery.

♥Pure Pigment £15.00 - Ore♥
A gorgeous rich golden bronze colour, with glitter shot through. Looks stunning all over the lid with MAC Carbon in the crease for a sultry smokey eye. As with every other Illamasqua pigment the quality is brilliant.

♥Liquid Metal £17.00 - Stotic♥
This was the second liquid metal I own, but I far prefer this for the deep jade colour, the best colour they have created in my opinion. I have worn this smudged all around my eye with a dusting of a silver eye shadow to set it, and it really brings out the white of my eyes. I got a lot of compliments when I wore it out. 

♥Lipstick £15.00 - Disciple♥
This is perhaps the stand out product for me but also one that pushes your make-up boundaries. It takes confidence to wear this out, especially when it's not for a fancy dress party. I found this worked best gently patted onto the lips and finished off with a red gloss to give a really intense blue/purple lip. Just remember if you feel confident, you'll stand out for the right reason not for being the girl wearing blue lipstick!

♥Precision Ink £16.50 - Alchemy♥
Everyone was raving about these liners, the black one apparently is the top liner out there on the market. But I hoped this would turn up and I was thrilled when I saw this colour. I have been wearing this under my lower lashes with just mascara (or a very nude eye shadow) to give my eyes twinkle that catches the light. The staying power of this is amazing too. The swatch below stayed on even after a shower scrubbing loofah! Seriously impressive.
