Naked Strangers: The Blogger Response

Jangsara is smitten for Stranger, our gilded Intense Lipgloss … “Another of my favourite products from Illamasqua are the intense lipglosses. They really are INTENSE. And this one is beyond words, I love it! It’s liquid light gold, it’s really opaque, lasting, and beautiful.”

Karen over at the Makeupandbeautyblog rates Intimacy as a “sheer pinkish brown gloss, which has a sprinkling of shimmer and comes with a brush applicator, has everyday color written all over it.”

Scrangie has a great description of Faithful – our coppered metal … “The contrast in this color is really interesting. In dim lighting, it looks like a dusty, faded, almost taupe-like brown with a bit of red shimmer. In daylight indoors it looks like an earthy copper bronze. When you see the polish in sunlight, then it really shines. All the metallic copper shimmer comes out and adds a glow to the dusty base color, like smoldering embers. Very cool color.”

Milly from Pearls and Poodles has a penchant for Nail Varnish in Swinger …”Swinger is a glorious glistening platinum gold with ever changing facets depending on the angle and lightening. Sometimes it is a rich, uninhibited gold shining brightly, other times it is a dark, murky gold with a slightly grungy-green tinge to it to.”

Miss Lucy Loves adores Nail Varnish in Monogamous …  ” [Monogamous is] super creamy, beautifully pigmented and dries with a waxy, matte finish … it’s a definite holiday essential.”

The London Lipgloss’ Zoe has fallen for Zygomatic “When I saw the collection the piece I wanted the most was Zygomatic, mainly because I know how good the quality of their cream blushers are but also because the shade is just absolutely to die for.”

Nihrida is lusting over our Powder Blusher in Naked Rose “This is another product that won me over completely. Not just because it’s well pigmented and soft – the color is perfect! If you want a good neutral/natural blusher, this is the one for you. I’m not kidding.”


What are your favourite pieces from the collection?
