Illamasqua Theatre of the Nameless collection - Kink and Ambition swatches

Yesterday I showed you some pictures from the Illamasqua Theatre of the Nameless collection launch and as promised I have swatches of two of the products for you today. I couldn't resist purchasing two products and Illamasqua were very kind to send us lucky bloggers home with some goodies too! =)

The pretty products I took home! You all know I FREAKING adore blush so I just had to take home the Illamasqua Shimmer Blusher in Ambition. I also purchased the much raved about Skin Base Foundation in 07 and received nail polish in Kink* and False Eye Lashes in Weimar*.

The nail varnishes in this collection are inspired by the Wittenberg Platz's Boot Girls colour-coded specialities (so ummm.. girls who wore different coloured boots so people knew what they specialised in xp). They have a "rubber-look" finish which is somewhere in between a matte and a gloss finish. The caps are also rubber finished to distinguish between the normal gloss finish polishes!

Illamasqua Kink is described as a "bottle green" and is a tad darker in real life. It's very different to any other greens I own and I love the "rubber-look" finish! 2 coats pictured.

Close up:

As always, application and pigmentation was perfect and it was opaque in 2 smooth coats.

I was very kindly given the False Eye Lashes in Weimar which are just stunning. I don't want to use them!!

The Shimmer Blusher in Ambition is Illamasqua's first shimmer powder blusher and I fell head over heels with it when Mikele tried it on me! Egged on by all the lovely ladies I just had to pick it up!

Ambition is a super pretty shimmery neutral blush. It is very pigmented and gives a gorgeous glow to my cheeks ♥

I was colour matched for Skin Base foundation and just had to pick it up too. I love BB creams and Skin Base is inspired by them but better! I also needed another foundation with SPF xp

I hope you enjoyed my quick swatches and review! What do you think of the new "rubber-look" finish? Will you be trying any of the products?

Thanks for looking as always! =)
