Illamasqua Bloggers Press Day - Earth Collection A/W15

Thursday, 3 September 2015 London, UK

Last week I was fortunate enough to attend the Illamasqua A/W 15 product launch for press and bloggers. The event was held in London's Ace Hotel (I rarely go down to events in East London, but couldn't give this one a miss). I met with blogger babes Amina & Bunmi where we were kindly greeted by the hotel staff and swiftly headed upstairs to the 4th floor. As we came out of the lift, we were signed in and walked across to the room the event was being held in and again we were greeted by lovely hotel staff and Illamasqua's press team. 

We had the chance to preview the latest collection which I'll review below and we were also graced by Creative Director Alex Box's presence. She explained why she was eager to create a collection that echoes warmth, iridescent light and power. After her talk, Alex popped over to talk to our little group which was lovely of her. Our talk escalated from the collection, to fashion to energy - can I just say, Alex is probably one of the most sweetest people I've ever met in my life. 

One of my favourite products of this collection, a very rusty red which is so on trend this A/W15. This lipstick is long lasting, packed with Vitmain E to give you smooth looking lips. Purchase Glamore Lipstick in Kin here - £18.50 

Those Halloumi bites were just so damn good..yes that's watermelon you see ;) 

The Nomadic palette features for intense coloured powders in both matte and metallic finishes. Again, Illamasqua are on trend with the shades they have chosen which can be used to create a variety of looks easily. Purchase here - £34 

You would have seen me modelling the Element nail varnish just above in this post and I can say, I adore it. I must admit, I was a bit sceptical about the colour suiting my skin tone and fingers at first but the lovely nail artist (@cherriesnow) changed my views on this. She painted them effortlessly and I was shocked to see how amazing just one coat looked (we did use two but honestly if you're short on time one will do). Purchase here - £14.50

After the event myself, Amina, Bunmi, Breeny Lee and BeautybyJJ headed down to the Hoxton to catch up from when we saw each other last which was lovely! 

What products will be making an appearance in your beauty collection this Autumn?
