You may have already heard about Illamasqua's new SS10 range, Body Electrics. The promo shots alone sell this one! Love! Illamasqua is a brand I can stare at all day in wonder and their new collection is no exception.
They say... 'Body Electrics is inspired by the power of kinetic energy, the art of movement, the fluidity of the body in motion. The collection is an anthology of creams, powders and dry body oils infused with light, shimmer and shine, designed to highlight and contour your whole body. Containing hyper-pigmented light-reflecting particles that ignite the skin with intense colours and finishes, each product in the range has been created to accentuate the body's every twist and turn to exquisite perfection, ensuring you exude a confidence that's more than skin deep...'
Unfortunately for me, I cant go to work everyday like the girls in the promo shots. But even for the 99% of us that fall into this category, we can still make the products work for us. And that is what I believe is great about this brand.
I was lucky enough to be sent the body oil and the bronzer, both are the products to the brand. The body oil is a dry oil which doesn't sit on the skin. Used lightly, it catches the light and gives that sun kissed look that you only normally get after 2 weeks in the carribean! I have tried this over my fake tanned arms and it made me look healthier and fresher. This is perfect for summer evenings out where you want to glow without sitting in the sun. This is buildable too so you can have as much or as little shimmer as you like. Plus it smells good too! Dont ask me what the smell is, but its nice! The oil is also presented in a glass bottle which will look great on the dresser!
The bronzer is lovely! colour wise think Barry M bronzer/Benefit Dallas, however the shimmer through it, makes it. There is a gold pearl all the way through which only shows up in the light. It acts the same on your skin too so you dont need to worry about looking like a disco ball. For me, it has just the right amount of shimmer.
You should check out their new brochure too. Their foundations are shown on real faces so its a million times easier to colour match yourself without going to a counter.
