My Top Sale Picks from Illamasqua

Despite not having tried a very wide range of their products, I can still wholeheartedly say that Illamasqua is one of my favourite makeup brands. Everything I've tried from Illamasqua has always really impressed me and their lipsticks and cream blushes are some of my most reached for beauty products. Illamasqua have amazing seasonal sales where even some of their most loved beauty products get incredible reductions - and not just 10% discounts, you can find discounts of up to 70% with free delivery on all orders. It's incredibly tempting and I've been browsing the website quite a lot in the last couple of weeks so I thought I'd share the products that have gotten me particularly excited.

Illamasqua's Matte Lipsticks in the shades Resist (rose pink) & Growl (rich brown)
available for £9.25 each, reduced from £18.50 - 50% discount
I've shared my thoughts on Illamasqua's Matte Lipsticks before - I own the shade Magnetism. I find it to be incredibly long lasting and the rest of the colour range is really wonderful. Resist looks like it would be a perfect shade for spring/summer, whilst Growl would be a gorgeous vampy option for evening wear. In a dream world I'd own handfuls of these lipsticks as they're just fantastic.

Illamasqua's Multi Facet Palette in Aura 
available for £22.50, reduced from £45.00 - 50% discount
This has been a palette that I've lusted after for some time. It contains a blush, a highlight,  a cool-toned contouring product, an eyebrow powder and four eyeshadows - pretty much everything you need all in one palette. There are two Multi Facet Palettes but Aura looks better for my pale skin, whilst Semblance would be better for warmer skin tones.

Illamasqua's Precision Ink Eyeliner in Glister (opalescent nude)
available for £8.00, reduced from £20 - 60% discount
Illamasqua's Liquid Eyeliners are incredibly long lasting. Once they've set they really don't budge! I already have the shade Scribe, a true white, but Glister looks like a gorgeous colour that I haven't really seen in the drugstore - so at its reduced price of £8.00 I'm seriously tempted to test it out. 

Illamasqua's Cream Blushes in Laid (bright rose pink) & Libido (vibrant red)
available for £10.75 reduced from £21.50 - 50% discount
Illamasqua's Cream Blushes are my favourite - they're just wonderful products and I already own five! Libido is a really great colour, a slightly orange-toned red that gives a very naturally looking flush. Whilst Laid looks like a perfect addition for bright, perky spring-summer makeup looks.

Illamasqua's Cream Pigment in Delirium (rose taupe)
available for £7.00, reduced from £17.50 - 60% discount
I haven't tried any of Illamasqua's Cream Pigments before but Delirium looks really pretty for pale skin tones. It perhaps isn't going to work as a contour shade, but it would make a very subtle spring-summer blush and all the reviews on the website state that it works really well as a lipstick too. This is another product that I'm seriously tempted to buy!

These are my top picks from Illasmaqua's sale. I'd love to know if you've already picked anything up in the sale or if there are any products that I missed off this list that you think I should try out next.



  1. I've heard great things about this brand and have been wanting to try it. With all these great products on sale, this may be the best time to make a little purchase!

  2. I wrote a post like this and also included the Glister Precision Ink, it's truly beautiful! I picked up a few more of their single shadows this time round, their sales are amazing!

  3. They have a couple of blushers I like to look of! If I hadn't got the Vintage Metallix in Embellish for Christmas the little pot trio gift set would've been amazing! xx

  4. Some great reductions here. Will definitely have a look at their website. I don't own anything from Illamasqua so this might be my chance to grab a few things from them. :)
