Toxic Nature – Illamasqua’s Spring Summer 2011 collection. A colourful juxtaposition of intoxicated neons, powerful pastels and dirtied earthy tones represent Illamasqua’s visionary concept of nature’s battle against a genetically modified society. Toxic Nature is unpredictable, raw and unchartered. It is a paradox of tones and hues, a beautiful contradiction, a clashing deliverance of unbound creativity.
I attended the Illamasqua event last week and met with other bloggers with a similar anticipating disposition. The mystical setting was perfectly apt to host the unveiling of their new collection. Rainbow-bright macaroons enticed us from a far whilst earthy foliage, enlarged critters and smouldering forestry propped the room. It was a privilege to witness the collection in all its unabashed glory, as well as being treated to having our nails lacquered by the lovely ladies from WAH nails.
The collection comprises of the following products;
5 x cream pigment (£17)
Emerge (peach) Bedaub (mint) Dab (lilac) Hollow (toffee) Delirium (rose taupe) Mould (grape)
5 x nail polishes (13.50) as above…Gamma, Stagnate, Purity, Radium, Bacterium
2 x lipstick (£15.50) Atomic (fuchsia violet) and Flare (bright orange)
2 x sheer lipgloss (£13) Torture (coral peach) and Divine (fuchsia pink)
Precision Ink (£17) Glister (a wonderfully enchanting opalescent nude)
I have received a few products from the collection which I will duly swatch and show in a future post. I am most excited to try Purity nail polish, a lovely true peach hue.
This collection is available to the masses online from Thursday 10th March and subsequently launches in the Illamasqua store and on counters on Thursday 17th March.
