Theatre of Jangsara




Welcome to the Theatre of the Nameless!
I was lucky to receive some products from Illamasqua's new collection, and here's a review of two lip products from the collection, and a recreation of one of the looks!


Like I've said many times before, I love the style of Illamasqua. They always have the most wildest ideas with makeup, and they don't leave it to just lids and lips, they extend the look to forehead, nose, cheeks, chin, hair, accessories and nails. (Do you know anyone else who does that? It starts with J and ends with angsara ;D)
In Theatre of the Nameless I wasn't inspired so much by the drawn sharp lines, but this look:


So I took my brushes and made this:



One with "bit" less photoshopping:
Face
  • Loreal studio secrets primer
  • Chanel light foundation & Grimas white cream color
  • MUFE pink flashcolor & Illamasqua Morale blush on cheeks and temples
  • Illamasqua Breathe Pure Pigment as a highlighter
Eyes:
  • Illamasqua Resolute liquid metal
  • MUFE pink & red flashcolor 
  • Illamasqua Berber Pure Pigment
  • Illamasqua Zeitgeist Pure Pigment
  • MAC Reflects Rust 
  • Illamasqua Breathe Pure Pigment
  • MAC Blacktrack fluidline
  • Illamasqua Masquara
Lips:
  • Illamasqua Kontrol lipstick
  • Illamasqua Breathe Pure Pigment


Then the lip products:


Lipstick Kontrol:
I love Illamasqua's lipsticks. I own five or six of them, and so far only one (Disciple) has been a small disappointment being a bit dry when applying. Others have been awesome. 
They are dry, but creamy and easy to apply. Colors are awesome too.
Kontrol is deep, a little grayish matte purple.
I know I'll be using a lot in my wilder looks!





Sheer lipgloss Violate:
I own two intense lipglosses and one sheer lipgloss from Illamasqua, and I've always though that the sheer would mean it's sheer :D Well I guess it really means it, but I really put this to the intense category rather than sheer. It's dark poison green, not the color you choose for your daytime look.
It's also pretty hard to apply, I guess since it's 'sheer', it isn't opaque, but when it's such a bold color, the result should be quite transparent.
I haven't really figured what should this be worn with, that it would look good, but I guess I'll think of something ;D

  1. Amazing re-creation! The original photo reminds me of Columbia from The Rocky Horror Picture Show (probably the hair).

  12. "it a bit there and there"-lausahdus ei toimi lainkaan englanniksi näin. Toki suomalaiset lukijat tajuavat tätä Finglishia, mutta muun maalaisille tuleekin sitten tovin tauko arvaillessaan mitä tuolla haetaan.

    Sanonnat kääntyvät HYVIN harvoin suoraan.
