Intrigued, we decided to check it out. Turns out this British beauty company, launched in 2008, has taken the British beauty scene by storm and has since hopped across the pond to our fair shores, arriving in Bloomingdale’s and Sephora. Songstress Lily Allen and designer Vivienne Westwood are among the growing fanbase of the line and the makeup artists of Downton Abbey credit the beauty brand as their go-to. Illamasqua prides itself on highly pigmented colors that allow for self-expression and accentuating your own personal beauty.
Without following the conventional “trends” with colors, it allows the brand to offer a varying palette of hues that are not found anywhere else. We can’t get enough of their lipstick in “Over,” and their precision gel liner.
Illamasqua is available at Bloomingdale’s in Oak Brook, 630-974-4300.
