Illamasqua Body Electrics Review & Swatches: I love Surprises That Come in Big Blue Boxes!
After a long day at work, I came home to see a rather large box waiting on my doorstep. Could it be a tech gadget for my husband? Or *gasp* makeup for me? I was ecstatic to see it was makeup for me! What intrigued me the most was that it was from the UK via Royal Mail and I wasn’t expecting anything from overseas.
Inside the cardboard box was a big Tiffany’s-coloured box (LOVE!) containing products from Illamasqua’s latest collection, Body Electrics. I had seen many a beauty blogger in the UK and Europe get these boxes over the past month or so and never thought I would get one too. Inside was a bronzer in Writhe, a Powdered Metal in Ezrule, and a super big and super soft kabuki brush.
I immediately became a swatching machine. I’m adoring bronzers right now especially with the warmer weather and these products definitely ‘spoke’ to me.
Writhe is a beautiful bronzer unlike anything I own. It is golden with a definite reddish undertone. The texture is fantastic — very smooth and blendable. It is very pigmented. It is also shimmery without being glittery which makes it day or office appropriate.
Thanks Illamasqua for thinking of this Canadian blogger!!
