Brands I wish were sold in South Africa- Illamasqua

I have seen Illimasqua on several UK beauty blogs and the first thing that caught my eye was the packaging. Its very different and unconventional. After doing some research about the brand, I learned that they are all about being different and loving your imperfections. When I was on their website I came across a banner that advertises their lipsticks and the model had braces!

If you didn't know, I decided to get braces at the age of 20. I have no idea why I didn't do it when I was younger. I absolutely hate smiling in pictures since I got them and I am still adjusting (after have them for 10 months) to them.

As you can see, their packing is very different. The liquid metal eyeshadow looks beautiful and it is definitely something I would love to own. The pout perfection set is a really clever idea. They provide you with a lipstick, matching lip liner and a lip brush so that you can create a perfect pout!

Have you tried anything from Illamasqua?


  1. Illamasqua always has amazing packaging!

    I want everything! Especially the liquid metal eyeshadow :)

  2. Even though they don't sell in South Africa, they do order internationally, so you should check if that's an option maybe? If you go on holiday though, you should check if that country sells them ^^

    1. Thats a really good idea but I am still a bit skeptical about shopping online :)

  3. Illamsqua is DEF one of those lust have brands to have in SA. their creative director of artistry, Alex Box, is a sheer genius when it comes to makeup and she in unparallelled in her ability to create weird but insanely beautiful makeups. If they opened a store in cape town,omw, I would prob spend all my money there, lol

  4. I have just moved back from london and I am a makeup artist. This brand is phenomenal! I managed to bring some home with me but my stocks are seriously low!!!
    The products are of such a high quality, what a fabulous brand.
    The only problem with ordering online to South Africa is you get hit with massive customs charges at the post office once it arrives here. Trust me I have made this mistake.
    We should start a petition to get this brand to S.A!!

  5. i ordered from them last year - holy crap was i impressed!! the shipping was really good, packaged well and was pretty speedy. i got their lip brush - it's TO DIE FOR! so precise. their black lipstick is actually black, and the two lip glosses i got are beautiful and smell amazing.
