EOTD: Illamasqua Stalk and bhcosmetics Pink...

Absolutely dee-lighted to introduce you to Illamasqua Stalk, the most fabulously stunning matte green shadow that was gifted to me by my dear (and ever so generous) friend Hissycat Krissy, who is acutely aware of my passion for green eye makeup This arrived on my doorstep bundled in with a whole heap of goodies (a couple you've already seen, and others are yet to be revealed), and I'm ecstatic - while I have a multitude of green pigments rattling around in my drawers, I have nothing that's as pure and bold and intense as this hue 

I'm COMPLETELY sold on Illamasqua shadows now. They are such a pleasure to use - so finely milled like compressed silk, zero fallout, stunningly packaged, holey cow I could rave for days about how wonderful they are, but I'd better get on with the details of this particularly colourful look...

I used essence White Kajal under the Stalk, and Chi Chi Waterproof Gel Eyeliner in Hopelessly Devoted under the bhcosmetics pink from the Take Me To Brazil palette. The purple appeared magically when I blended the two together - love it when that happens ha ha! Waterline is...yes, you guessed it, Chi Chi Caribbean Queen - undoubtedly my most used waterline product of late 


On my face I used L'Oreal Infallible 24Hr foundation, cheeks were a base of Maybelline Master Glaze Blush Stick in Pink Fever, and I brushed a wee bit of the bright pink from the BYS On the Brightside blush trio for some extra oomph. Lips were Rubi Shoes (yes they make lipsticks as well as shoes!) Raspberry...


Thank you again darling Kris for this beautiful addition to my collection 

Take care of you,

  1. But hey! Green & pink don't make purple! What? That's mad, but it looks great! Serendipity ;)
    BTW, what's the longevity of the Rubi Shoes lippy? It looks beautiful.

  2. Lol they sure do hon, well at least in the makeup world ha ha. Pink contains red, and green has a lot of blue in it so it actually makes sense to me ♡ The Rubi lipsticks are glossy and wear off quickly, but they're moisturising and come in a good range of colours - no better or worse than any other bargain lipstick xxx
