to attract attention on a superficial level only. However, this
wonderful beauty tool can carry much deeper meanings than that as
the latest Illamasqua makeup

collection offers a much appreciated encouragement to let go of
social expectations and dare to express our individuality through
makeup. The brand has become known for selecting challenging
concepts and translate them into art and the latest collection is

The rise above standards imposed by society is a definite characteristic of the collection and, by extension, of the brand itself. 'Breaking the mould is a sign of strength not instability', the brand proudly states among other statements encouraging individuality and gives some pretty striking hues to help us do so. Here are some of the most interesting products from the collection:
Promoted as a 'playground of self-expression', the palette will maximize the fun one can experience when trying to create a seductive eye makeup.
