The Big Birthday Giveaway Day Five:
Illamasqua Christmas Collection


Illamasqua Christmas Collection
Fatale eyeshadow palette: £34*
Sculpting Duo: £26*
Intense Lipgloss in Maiden: £14.50*
Nail polish in Blizzard: £14.50*

It's the fifth and final instalment of my giveaway week - and as I blog predominantly about cosmetics, I thought I'd save them till last. As you may have read a few weeks ago I went along to the Illamasqua counter at Selfridges for a beauty transformation, and the core products for the look were from the Christmas collection. It's such a beautiful little bundle that I really wanted to give someone else the chance to enjoy it all, too. Here's a lowdown on the collection..

Illamasqua's Christmas collection consists of four products. The Fatale palette, is a quartet of stunning shimmery shadows that seem quite daunting but really work together, even with blue eyes! The four hues seem to adapt to each other when applied together and can completely change a look - they also layer beautifully and the pigmentation is incredible. The Sculpting Duo is absolutely amazing too, and my favourite from the collection already - I haven't gone a day without using it since I got it! Also in the collection is a peachy pink lipgloss, Maiden and an iridescent white speckled topcoat, Blizzard, which is reminiscent of the picturesque snowfall we all dream of come the festive season.

If you'd like the chance to win these awesome beauty bits, see the widget below for T&Cs and entry details. Sending my good luck wishes to you all! I'll be posting about the products more in detail in coming weeks, but you can check out my beauty transformation post here in the meantime, and also this look! Don't forget to enter the rest of the giveaways too!
