Illamasqua The Sacred Hour Collection

Illamasqua recently launched a new collection called The Sacred Hour* and it was inspired by the sacred hours of dawn and dusk. I admire how creative Illamasqua is for coming up with different, and unique collections.

Velvet Blush - Peaked (£18)

Velvet blushers seem to be a new thing that is coming out in the makeup world. These blushers are a cream to powder blush and is fantastic for oily skin......we all know cream blushers don't even last five minutes on oily skin! This is a great product, as you have the benefit of a cream blush but the finish of a powder. Peaked is a gorgeous dusky rose and would compliment any skin tone. You only need a very small amount, and it blends out effortlessly. You can use a brush or your fingers.

Lipstick - Shard (£16.50)

I adore this colour! Shard screams out everything to do with fall! This is the perfect autumnal lipstick and suits pretty much everyone. It is a very dark berry with a matte finish, however i would recommend using a good lip balm before applying this lipstick, as it can be a bit drying.

Nail Polish - Facet (£14.50)

Facet is almost a dark purple, grey nail polish with specks of gold. Again, this is a beautiful polish for autumn.

I think the Illamasqua have done an amazing job by creating these products, because there is something for everyone. I'm actually tempted to purchase the other velvet blush and the reflection palette!

All products from The Sacred Hour can be picked up online HERE.
