Illamasqua Human Fundamentalism Event!

I’m sure you’ve seen this popping up all over your blogger dashboards recently, but I thought I’d throw in what I think of the new Illamasqua collection too. Aptly named Human Fundamentalism, the range breathes diversity, confidence and unity.

Alex Box (Illamasqua’s creative director and one of my inspirations!) was on hand to show off the range by creating stunning art work on a model. She says about the range ‘Human Fundamentalism is the unique spirit and fundamental human drive for individuality. Its a belief, a movement and an emotion. A connection with the spirit of the age and its global motifs. You are your own hybrid, a unique nomad of street cultures and global trends”.

The Human Fundamentalism range consists of a white ‘penultimate’ liquid liner (which can also be used as a nail pen), two palettes (one bright and one with neutral browns), two nail polishes (a bright jade and a mauve purple), a selection of six stunning eye shadows and a Skin Base Foundation in shade ‘Au’ - perfect for wearing alone as a highlighter or for mixing with your foundation to create a glow and finally two lipsticks – a red and a teal!

Now I know your probably thinking, a teal blue lipstick (whhhaattt?!) but after spending the night with beautiful girls wearing this shade on their lips it became normal and very appealing. Any one who tried this lipstick on looked glamorous and beautiful – it suited all skin types. Now, I’m not sure I would be confident enough to brave wearing this out on the streets of Essex, but makeup is all about being individual and creating new looks and changing yourself like a chameleon to fit how you feel that particular day. I love how diverse and creative Illamasqua are and I LOVE that they are trying to push the boundaries with makeup and give women the confidence to wear a striking lip colour or a neon purple eyeshadow because they feel like it that day. This brand of makeup are incredible and the fact that they make makeup for people to express themselves (instead of just creating pretty shades that are in fashion right now) is so inspiring to me and just makes me fall in love with Illamasqua ten times over.

I received a few samples from the new range which will be appearing on my blog over the next few weeks, but in the meantime, what do you think about Illamasqua?

Will you be picking anything up from this Illamasqua range? What do you think about teal blue lipstick?

  7. I really love that Illamasqua promotes creativity, it's so different compared to other brands! I doubt I'd ever have the confidence to wear blue lipstick (although it would go with my blue hair haha!) but at the same time I'm drawn to all the bright and beautiful colours. It's a brand that isn't scared to be different! :D

  12. I don't really know what Illamasqua mean by the concept of "Human Fundamentalism" as per their definition above BUT I really like this collection! It's a great mix of brights and neutrals. I've already bought the white eyeliner and fundamental palette, they're both quite unusual and great for playing around with. I especially like how the fundamental palette has a mixture of textures (some cream, some matte, some metallic) which I think is really unusual for a palette.

  13. I wish wearing teal Lipstick was acceptable in society. I reckon you'd get some funny looks rocking that shade on the tube. Illamasqua are always so daring and bold with their collections and it continues to pay off for them. Excited to see how many people try out some of the crazy colours from Human Fundamentalism!
