Illamasqua Art of Darkness Collection for Fall – Winter 2010 – Photos & Swatches of Superior Liquid Metal, Alluvium Pure Pigment & False Eye Lashes

by Tavia

Hi everyone!

I just got a few products from Illamasqua The Art of Darkness Collection for Fall – Winter 2010 (exclusive promo photos, swatches) so I will make a short preview post to show some swatches.

My favorite character from this collection is Wanton Woman and I know how crazy this might sound because her makeup is all about blue colors and you know me, I’ve always avoided blues and greens. She looks fabulous rocking that blue makeup and I don’t know if I’m gonna come just a little bit closer to her look but I’ll give it a try tomorrow.

I’m still thinking if I should do my eyebrows in blue…but I’ll have time to meditated over it tonight. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m not promising to post my photos tomorrow because as youย  know I’m terrible when it comes to blue makeup.

So, to get the Wanton Woman makeup look I’ve thought that 3 products were essential and I’ve got:

  • Liquid Metal in Superior
  • Pure Pigment in Alluvium
  • False Eye Lashes No. 23

Check out more photos & swatches right after the cut.

Here are all the 3 products that I’ve got in their packaging. Very inspiring package actually because it gave me ideas of a new makeup looks.

Liquid Metal – ยฃ 17.00 – 1.5 g – 0.05 oz

I’ve got the Liquid Metal in Superior, a deep lapis lazuli, a strong deep creamy blue with metal shine. I really love this color although I don’t know how great it will look on me because blue makeup is one of the hardest makeup to pull off.

It has the same classical packaging ofย  the previous Liquid Metals and Pure Pigments but I’m used to it and I like it a lot. It’s very easy to deep your finger or brush inside. You can use it to adorn the body and apply with fingers or a brush.

By the way, did I mention that it smells great? Maybe is just me but I really love the smell and is the kind of scent a lip gloss should have. ๐Ÿ™‚

Get ready to release your inhibition and free your inner siren.

Using an eyeshadow primer makes the color more intense and rich. You can decide to use it both ways. Aren’t those metallic reflexes just beautiful?

Pure Pigment – ยฃ 15.00 – 1.3 g – 0.04 oz

I have the Pure Pigment in Alluvium defined as a golden lilac blue but I see it more like a beautiful blue lilac with golden shimmer reflexes worn without an eyeshadow primer and a deep blue with a touch of purple and gold if is worn on top of a primer. It has an incredible high-shine and metallic effect.

I love both variants, but without a primer the color is softer and it will not resist so much on the eyelid.

It’s up to you if you wanna mix it with eye shadow or blusher, or you decide to use it on its own to intense effect. You can apply it with a moist brush for a more dramatic look.

The golden sparkle is just amazing. ๐Ÿ™‚

False Eye Lashes – ยฃ 12.00

These False Eye Lashes are No. 23. I’ve never used fake eyelashes but hopefully I will do it tomorrow. I’ve watched lots of tutorials about how to apply false lashes but I’ll see if I shall pass the test. ๐Ÿ™‚

For the Wanton Woman’s look false eyelashes are a must especially these ones in black and dark green colors.

I hope this post was fun and helpful for you. ๐Ÿ™‚ Let me know what are your desired products from this collection and what is your favorite character. ๐Ÿ™‚

I will take a photo but I’m not sure I will post it ๐Ÿ™‚ as I said I’m terrible when it comes to blue shades. Mistress of Ceremonies makeup seems so complicated to achieve, I’m not that talented. ๐Ÿ™‚

I also love Wanton Woman. Good luck with the lashes, there is nothing difficult, I am sure you’re gonna be fine. Individual lashes are also great. As for this collection, I love the new inks the best ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ve seen that you reviewed the new inks but where did you bought them from? I assume you ordered them online.
