Illamasqua Mystery Box

So yesterday, I finally caved and purchased the much acclaimed Illamasqua Mystery Box. I blame all the lovely bloggers who purchased them at the meetup. At the time, I was all "Oh I don't need anymore makeup" Then I slowly began to change my heart, purely because I really wanted to try the brand and at €23, there is no question what a bargain it was.

In the mystery box, you definitely get a gorgeous neon nail polish called Collide and a fabulous cream eyeshadow called Electrum.

I love both of these so much!!

Now comes the mystery part, the bit that was both fun and terrifying at the same time. I was praying I wouldn't end up with too many weird and wonderful colours and it turned out pretty good with these two lovelies.

The blue eyeshadow is called Dance. I'm not completely sold on the idea of this but will give it a try. What I was really hoping for was a colour that would go with Electrum. I wasn't actually paying much attention to the eyeshadow last night and thought I had received a navy, imagine how shocked I was when I actually looked at it properly.
The lipgloss is a pretty intense pinky orange called Induige and something I will definitely wear. The only slight problem is that it is a little bit sticky

Alas, nothing is ever 100% perfect, and I ended up with a matte orange blush called Expose and coppery lipstick called Flicker. Both lovely but colours that personally I wouldn't wear.

I am going to add these two into my blog sale that I am preparing for. I'll also possibly add Dance.

Have you picked up any of the Illamasqua Mystery Boxes?
