Illamasqua Toxic Nature Collection For Spring Summer 2011

I was very kindly sent the above items as I was too ill to attend the launch of the range, I was so grateful as they were all items that I really really wanted to try.

What Illamasqua say about the range “In retaliation against the genetically modified society that plunders it, the landscape has issued forth a torrent of hybrid shades. Corrupted hues glister amongst muted tones – extreme, intoxicating versions of their original selves.

This is an atomic-botanical environment where survival is key and camoflague by colour is the path to existence.

We scoured the abandoned toxic wastelands of the world to create an eclectic selection of corrupted hues for the eyes, lips, nails, face and body. Flitting effortlessly from poisonous pastel to hazardous neon, this cataclysmic mix of brave new tones take your look to the outer limits of nature’s palette.

Become a herald of the new age of Toxic Nature with uncharted night-time make-up.”

I think the cream pigment is perfect for cheeks, I love the peach colour and the consistency is so soft and smooth.  The pigment is also matte which is fab, you can add shimmer with you highlighter.

The eyeliner is a glistening nude colour, I am not really sure what to pair it with though? I would like to do a FOTD with the products when I feel a bit better so any suggestions gratefully received.

My favourite thing out of the three is 100% the Gamma Nail Varnish, RRP is £13.50 and it is sooo worth it.

Gamma is a mega mega flouro orange and I am going to go mad for this on my toes this Summer! This is such an Ibiza colour, hmm just need a ticket to Ibiza though lol!

Find it here – definitely at least one item in the range for everyone, the nail polishes are amazing.

I want to also pick up Bacterium nail varnish when I go shopping. I really am not feeling great still, I finish my last lot of antibiotics tomorrow and my combinations of Ubertan and spray tan are at least making me look a lot more healthy! I’ll get there, I just need to make sure I get enough food and sleep, and work out some way to be able to go to the gym when I want to. I moved to a gym near work but it works out that I’d have to get the train at 6am just to get a 1 hour workout in before work, there isn’t time for a proper workout at lunch and after work I get to the gym the same time as I used to get to the gym round the corner from my house, but then have a 2 hour journey of tube, train, walk to get home after than. It’s just too much really.  

I need to sort something out. If anyone knows of any well priced gyms in Orpingon or Bexley with FREE parking and decent treadmills, cross trainers and free weights and matts then let me know, not bothered about pools and the less kids the better.
