I haven’t blogged about Illamasqua in forever, because their collections just didn’t fly with me – a bit too much out there and unwearable for an average person like myself – but their recent ImPerfection collection has really hit home.
The world isn’t perfect. But who wants to be perfect anyways?
ImPerfection is an open invitation to stand up and sow the world what makes you perfectly, imperfect.
So show off your freckles. Make beauty spots more beautiful. Shine a light on your birthmarks. And be proud of your scars.
Because life isn’t about finding yourself, life is about celebrating who you really are.
What a perfect message to start 2013 with. I don’t know about you, but I’ve got this feeling that 2013 is all about change. I don’t know what change it will be for me, but my guts do tell me there’s change coming my way.
One of the highlights of this collection are the Speckled Nail Varnishes, that come in five shades: Freckle (soft neutral), Fragile (soft blue), Mottle (soft green), Scarce (soft pink) and, the object of today’s review, Speckle!
All these speckled nail polishes with their black circular flakes and tiny particles remind me a lot of some Easter egg sweets that we have in Germany (not sure whether they exist over here!), especially with these pastel colours! I guess that’s a brilliant coup what with Easter being (sort-of-ish) around the corner!
Speckle is a gorgeous pastel lilac, which I think will be one of the big colours in SS13!
And I have to say I’m really, really impressed with the polish! I normally shy away from nail polishes because I am just too impatient to wait for them to dry, especially when they’re glittery they normally take forever because they have to be applied thickly to actually show the flaked effect.
But not these ones! I am really in awe! It took only two coats to get the polish to look opaque and the irregular effect is just brilliant. And the product dried superfast too! So fast in fact I didn’t get the chance to ruin more than one nail!
So for £14.50 this Speckle polish (and probably the other 4 ones too!) are such a brilliant novelty and definitely worth the money! They are available online now and in stores/concessions!
So, dolls, will you get yourself the Illamasqua ImPerfection Speckle Nail Polish or one of the other four or stay away?
