Sugarpill Bulletproof and Goldilux with Illamasqua Lush Lash

Hey all!

Another makeup post! Yay! I have been wanting to do this make up since I got my Sugarpill order a few months ago but just never seemed to get around to it until I came across Michael James' video on YouTube. I love his videos so much, his personality is infectious and he it just stunningly gorgeous. Check him out!

Review time! This was the first time I had worn the new Lush lashes from Illamasqua and I love them! They did take a little bit of getting used to how they looked, as I normally go for a more tapered type of lash, but I just love how full and luscious these are, the name suits them perfectly! Very easy to put on despite their length and the thicker band means these babies will hold their shape for a long time to come.

I have also realised I have never really done a review of any of my Sugarpill eyeshadows! I will soon have the complete set of pressed shadows (the Cold Chemistry palette is in the post :D sans the limited editions) and I also have a handful of their loose shadows. Goldilux loose pigment is a dream to work with. It builds up opacity nicely and if you use a sticky base such as a primer or in my case NYX jumbo pencil in Milk, you get minimal fallout. The blend-ability is also wonderful. Bulletproof pressed shadow is now my holy grail black shadow. Load up the brush and you get the most perfect solid black, use a fluffy brush and you can get a nice soft black without it going grey. Pure perfection. I love Sugarpill eyeshadows so much!

Ok, enough babble, onto the pictures! The idea I had way back when was pretty much exactly what Michael has done, so if you want to recreate it go watch his video :D
