Illamaqua Toxic Nature Preview

Last night I was lucky enough to attend the Sydney beauty blogger event to celebrate the launch of Illamasqua's Toxic Nature collection. And oh my, what a collection! As you may already know I absolutely love Illamasqua ever since I discovered it a few months ago (check out my previous reviews by clicking the Illamasqua label in the left sidebar), and this collection is no exception.

But before I get to it...

Firstly, the Illamasqua crew were absolutely lovely, every-single-one-of-them.

Secondly, there was makeup... and there were macaroons! How absolutely fitting!

Now to the collection. All the shades are stunning, and totally wearable in my opinion... yes even the acidic lime nailpolish with a name like Radium is something I would wear (just not to the office). And don't you just love the names? Bacterium, Delirium, Radium....

Nailpolishes L/R - Bacterium, Radium, Stagnate, Gamma, Purity
Sheer Lipglosses - Torture (coral peach), Divine (fuschsia pink) 

On my nails I'm wearing nailpolish in Grab by Illamasqua (who else!?!)

Cream Colour Pigments - can be used on eyes, lips, cheeks, face... anywhere you like!

The makeup artist working his magic

At the end there were even goody bags for all the lovely bloggers that attended. I'm pretty sure the contents were customised for each blogger, because mine were just the perfect colours for me.

My goody bag

I received the sheer lipgloss in Divine, and cream colour pigment in Hollow. I will do a full review of my goodies when I've had more of a chance to play with them.

There are more items in the collection than I've shown here, but I didn't get a chance to play with all (tell you the truth there was no arm left to swatch!). To see what's in the full collection go to the Illamasqua page.

I believe the collection will be released mid March '11 and I already know what I'll be getting when it's out... the cream colour pigment in Delirium, the lipstick in Atomic, and nailpolish in Stagnate.

What do you think of this collection? Will you be buying anything from it?
