So all in all a terrifying sight. And she would NOT leave me alone. If I hadn't wanted to try the brand so much I would have told her to shove it but since the Illamasqua website is very confusing I had no choice really. grrrr.
After showing me almost everything in the entire line and picking the most vile colour out of each section (she picked up a bright fuschia lippie like the one she had on and rubbed it on my hand and said "this is for you" and stared at me waiting for me to say ok I will take one, when I replied "that is WAY too bright I prefer a neutral or pale lip" she tutted and then tried a colour which was about 1 shade lighter...dear god if you ever go to Selfridges on Oxford street and see this clown-haired monstrosity I beg you run run run for the hills!
She tried some other vile coloured eyeshadows on my and then pointed out Feint which I do actually like (although she did then grab 4 other shadows and say I needed them all to match...dear god) and I agreed that Servant was a nice shade and decided to take that, mainly to shut her up lol! Basically she seemed to be trying to get me to buy everything in the whole display! In the end I got so peeved I told her straight that I had spent enough money already and that I just wanted to take what I had already decided on having and she replied 'hmmm but how about this' aaaaaaah she was insane...as you can see I am still mad about 8 hours later lol.
Here are the two eyeshadows I purchased
Servant is a warm toned pale pink and Feint is a dirty mauve with pinky undertones and they are both matte. I like that they are matte as it will be good for a work look. I have only swatched so far and the colours appear just as in the pan (hence why I haven't swatched them on my hand for pics as well).
I was also bullied into buying their sealing gel which is just like the too faced and mac versions which change eyeshadow into eyeliner, I am sure it will be fine but I just didn't want it lol. I need to grow some balls...
The final thing I bought a lipstick in sonnet but it is more of a peach toned nude than pink so I won't be using it with the eyeshadows in the same look. I am going to have a play around with what I have bought now and hopefully will have a new eye look soon.
