Overview: Illamasqua Magenta Muse Collection

Here is an overview of Illamasqua’s Magenta Muse Collection!

You can purchase this collection at Sephora and Illamasqua stores.

Magenta Muse contains 6 nail colors, all of which go on smoothly and give you an opaque color with 1-2 coats. The most unique color is Jo’mina, which is an electric lilac. Illamasqua’s polishes have fantastic formulas, so if you’re going to pay $14 for any high-end nail polish, you should spend it on these.

The 2 lipsticks and 2 lip glosses are all great, wearable colors. Underworld lipstick is a very unique color that flashes violet shimmers. Test is also a great nude-colored lipstick. The formulation isn’t the creamiest, but you won’t have too much trouble with application. Both lip gloss colors are wearable for everyday and aren’t sticky.

Magenta Muse’s 2 blushes are bright colors that go on opaquely and have a not-too-powdery formula.

The Pure Pigment is a fantastic, multi-faceted color that flashes blue and silver. The Liquid Metal is a bronze/copper color that works great alone or as a base.

Cream Pigments in Dab and Mould are also included in this collection. Please see this review of the Cream Pigments. A review of the Precision Ink in Glister, included in this collection, is also reviewed here.

Overall, this is a great, wearable collection with a ton of pretty colors.

    Ooh, I like Muse! Even though Poke is a purple shimmer…it’s not doing anything for me. Weird. Tantrum lipgloss looks awesome though–looks very dimensional and has depth! And I had forgottten all about Test lipstick…I know it was on my list of things to try at some point. Back on the list it goes!
    Android looks beautiful but I just can’t work with loose pigments…the`Liquid Metal texture appeals to me more.
    I really wish Sephora carried the whole line; there are a couple of eyeshadows I’ve been wanting to try (Geisha, Fallen, & Deity) but Sephora doesn’t have them. I tried CanCan and Courtesan but both were too powdery and sheer, color payoff wasn’t good…so it’s made me hesitant to try any more.
