The fabulous color palette and super-refined textures from the Illamasqua Toxic Nature makeup collection 2011 will invite you into a secret garden, yet undiscovered. Neon and other eye-popping shades will help you create some of the most stunning and intoxicating makeup looks of the moment.

This time Illamasqua uses the 'artificial' buzzword in a positive sense. Makeup artists behind this beloved brand managed to envision a novel and catchy palette of makeup shades, radiating an unearthly charm. The Illamasqua Toxic Nature makeup collection 2011 is in fact based on the vision of nature taking revenge on people who intend to damage and destroy it.

As Alex Box, Illamasqua Creative Director claims, “Having an artist background highly influenced this collection. The medium of paint when it is in various states [mixed on a palette, on a canvas, the colours mutating when you wash your brushes] inspired the product colours of Toxic Nature. Blends, washes, dabs, drips, daubs and splashes of colour are evident in the imagery of the collection.”

Acid hues and profound color combos are some of the center pieces of the complete collection. Pull out all your beauty tricks for the warm season and surprise your entourage with a mass-inspiring as well as intriguing look using the Illamasqua Toxic Nature color palette.


The collection lines up a multitude of must-have makeup products that encourage you to explore some of the wildest and sight-catching makeup designs, inspired also by the latest runway trends. However, if you wish to rock out the transition from the winter neutrals to summer neons like a real pro, you can also proceed gradually and embed the various shades into your daily beauty routine or party looks.
