Review: Illamasqua Masquara


Review time! Illamasqua's new mascara:

If the eyes are the windows of the soul, our new Masquara in Raven (midnight black) reveals a heart of darkness with a new formula that lengthens, defines and dramatises lashes to extremes.
The happy union of our unique brush design and new smudge proof formula ensures lashes can last the whole night through.

Just look at the pictures released from the Theatre of the Nameless -collection:

I'm already inspired! You guessed it, I'm gonna do my own version of this at some point! 
I really love Illamasqua, because they are not afraid when they do their look and collections. No matter how weird it sounds or looks, they do it!

But this post was is supposed to be Illamasqua's new mascara which is released in Theatre of the Nameless -collection, Masquara (I love the name, though my suggestion was Lashquara ;D)
The package is pure Illamasqua. Black, nothing too fancy, but classy and nice:

As far as know, it's only available in one color, and that Raven. What, raven isn't color? Oh well, ravens are black, and so is this:

The brush is quite large, non-silicon bristles. Lately I've preferred the silicon ones, but this is the exception that makes the rule :D

How it is?
I've tried dozens (maybe over hundred) different mascaras over time, and only few has impressed me. This is SO one of them!
It actually lengthens, defines and dramatises lashes to extremes.
Well, maybe not to extremes, but what mascara really would do that? You really can't have false lash look if you don't own lashes that look like falsies.

But this works like a miracle with my lashes:

It doesn't clump, it isn't messy, it's stays well (it's not waterproof, but I'd say it's quite weatherproof, and really sweatingproof too :D), applies easily.. I love it.

  1. Love love love, mä niin tykkään Illamasquasta <3 ja susta sen käyttäjänä <3

  2. Theatre of the sharpies? :D Joo, minuun ei ihan iskenyt, liikaa viivamaisuutta tai liikaa meikkiä yhdessä naamassa, ja pahimmillaan molempia. Tämä oli pieni pettymys, sillä Illamasquan lookit ovat yleensä upeita.

  3. Amazing these pics !
    I never tried this brand... Maybe one day !

  4. Nuo Illamasquan promokuvat ovat aina niiiin upeita! Ja joka kerta jotain ennennäkemätöntä ja ihmeellistä, tykkään. <3

    Pitäisi kommentoida useamminkin, pahoittelen laiskuuttani. Nyt innostuin, kun piti tulla kertomaan palkinnosta, joka odottaa sinua blogissani. :)
