Illamasqua Eyeshadow 'Truth'

Hey Lovely People

Apologies my blog posts have been a little sporadic, I've been very busy adjusting to work life, and when I finish for the day, I am just too tired to write a blog post. Today is my day off so I am going to blog as much as I can for you all. 

So continuing with my purchases from the Clothesshow 2011 (yes it was a lil while ago and the British weather has been a  tad pants for lighting), I bring you another product from my Illamasqua haul; eyeshadow 'Truth''.


The Illamasqua stall at the clothesshow was heaving, ram packed of people trying to get the best of the products. As a result the selection of products were quite limited (last day), so I had a good look before completing my selection of 3 products for £10 (bargain). I personally am not a fan of bright, bold, in your face eyeshadows, I'm more of a neutrals girl; understated, yet simple which drove me to choose the eyeshadow 'Truth'.

Rich grey-brown, matt finish
(Illamasqua, 2011)

Having already reviewed the cream blusher and already a huge fan (which you can read here), I have to say I am also a huge fan of the eyeshadows and this particular shade. I have found with Illamasqua products they are extremely well pigmented which is a huge hit in my book (good staying power is what I like). The eyeshadow is very easy to apply, glides onto the eyelid with great ease and doesn't look caked, powdery after application. I also found this was a great shade for my skin tone; subtle and neutral for everyday work wear. I also noticed this eyeshadow smells a bit like chocolate; I don't know if it's my nose or my mind playing tricks on me, but everytime I go to use it, I get a slight whiff of chocolate. . . .

The RRP is £15.50 which to be honest I do find a little expensive for one eyeshadow. But then again the pigmentation and quality of the eyeshadow is very good.

Overall Thoughts

This particular illamasqua eyeshadow I really enjoy using; it has great pigmentation and is a great colour if you wish to keep your makeup neutral and subtle. I do believe however that the eyeshadows are slightly overpriced, considering a well known makeup palette has a great selection of neutral colours for just over the cost of 2 illamasqua eyeshadows! Regardless of the cost, they are very good quality, and if you are looking for an eyeshadow with great staying power (and has a slight hint of chocolate), then this eyeshadow might be the one for you.
