Illamasqua Human Fundamentalism - wearable EOTD and swatches

Illamasqua recently released their new collection called Human Fundamentalism.

"Human Fundamentalism is an explosion of your alter ego. It's becoming who you are and not who you're told to be. Beauty isn't conformity, but the fundamental human desire to express your inner self on the outside."

Last Tuesday I along with a few other bloggers were invited to the launch organised by the gorgeous girls at Tailormaid. To see pictures from the event, including Sara May rocking Apocalips the teal lipstick, check out my Facebook album.

I was very lucky to receive a goody bag containing the following... and you'd have to agree they're definitely me-colours!

Here are some swatches of the foundation and the eyeshadows.
L/R - Skinbase Au; Fundamental Palette (Hype, Molten Pewter Liquid Metal, Inception, Mint Green Cream Pigment)

Nail Varnish in Stance
The nailpolish in Stance is a gorgeous bright mauve that will look good no matter the weather. I can see myself wearing this in all seasons.

Fundamental Palette
And here's a look I created using the Fundamental Palette. While at first the colours look scary and bright, you can use them to create a more wearable look.

I decided to pair it with purple lips (MAC Up The Amp) when we went out for dinner last night. Overall I quite liked the purple tonal makeup so I will definitely do this look again.

The product I've got my eye on most is actually not released yet - it's a bright fuschia pink lipstick called Eurydice. You can see a picture of it in my Facebook album. I'll be stalking the Illamasqua counter until it's released so I can make that baby mine.
