An Experiment with Human Fundamentalism!!

Illamasqua cosmetics have been kind enough to send me products for reviewing from their 'Human Fundamentalism' collection. I was enthralled and so full of excitement that I decided to take this product review to another level. Instead of doing the same review and talking the same cliched things what every beauty blogger would do I thought of doing a look that could show my altered ego. And this is what I conjured.

I was sent 4 products from their line which are the key products in the look along with other options since I don't own much of Illamasqua line.

This concept inspired me to an Egyptian theme with gold accents on brows and lips and then apply colors of the desert sand and desert night. God Ra and his rise and fall as the day passes was also another inspiration for this story. Amidst the look you will also find the review of the sent products.

So lets have a look at my altered ego look and a small talk about the mentioned products....

Illamasqua PR kindly sent me :-

  1. Sealing Gel
  2. Powder eyeshadows in Sex, Vernau and Burst

I have taken this pictures without a flash. 'Burst' is a fantastic matte teal which looks gorgeous and is very pigmented. Top it on a cream based primer or shadow and it works in like magic.                 

'Sex' is a pure white unlike the name. Its the most amazing matte white I have seen. It goes soft as butter and stays will. I used it on the water liner for my altered ego look and it did wonders by staying there without an eye pencil underneath. Its a bright white with a bit of blue-ness unlike ivory.

With 'Vernau' described as yellow ochre, I would say its one the finest crease colors. It feels like suede or camel color on my eyes and looks utterly beautiful. The color is matte and packed with pigments without feeling dry on the brush or on eyes.

The 'Sealing gel' is very iconic and known to translate any powder eyeshadow into the finest liner you could use. An easy way to apply your favorite eyeshadow as a eye liner when you are on the run.




  • Stila One step foundation
  • Inglot YSM Compact powder
  • MAC Mineralize blush in Love Joy, Light flush and Smooth Merge
  • Illamasqua Sealing Gel
  • Illamasqua eyeshadows in Sex, Vernau and Burst
  • Fevistick Glue (to seal the brows)
  • MAC Pigments in Blue Green and Golden Lemon
  • MAC Reflets Antique Gold
  • MAC Paint pot in Black Ground
  • MAC eyeshadows in Smut and Gorgeous Gold
  • Clinique High Impact Mascara in Black

Hope you like the look.

Till then,
