The Edit


As I’m sure you all now know, our gorgeous AW12 Collection; Generation Q launched last Thursday so I thought I would share a few bits of the print press received, however I’m sure you have noticed the amazing on-line noise the collection has made with titles such as, Fabulous and and we even won a Pyschologies ‘Best Positive Beauty Brand’ award. Take a look for yourself…

Psychologies – The Psychologies Positive Beauty Awards 2012′ featuring Illamasqua Generation Q which won ‘Best Positive Beauty Brand’ award.

‘British make-up brand Illamasqua was founded by Julian Kynaston and Joe Corre with creative direction from industry make-up maverick Alex Box. Enschewing over-sexualisation and twee styling in favour of bold, brave and alternative visions of beauty, this is make-up for women and men who want to make statements, who want to play and experiment and who are not interested in looking like everyone else. Illamasquas advertising campaigns are also blazing the trail for diversity with women of all ages and races represented under the headline ‘where beauty has no limits.’

The Daily Telegraph – ‘The New Direction, Make-Up That Defies Age’ featuring Illamasqua Gleam Cream in Aurora

“Illamasqua is designed for those who do not want age to define them, to blend in or fade away. Illamasqua thinks we should be able to wear the make-up colours we like, even at an age when beige is considered the safe option.”

So this is just a little snippet of what the press are saying so far but we’ll be sure to keep you updated throughout the year.

What we are wondering though is.. what’s your favourite piece of the collection and why?
