I won't be creative in saying that this is an amazing way to try out the brand. You get a little bit of everything; the lipstick, the liner, the veil... All of these products are solid quality, I especially like the lipstick. It's the ideal "my lips but better" lip for my NC15 complexion. The sculpting stick works as a nice introduction to non-powder contour. It might not be very visible on darker skintones, but on my light skin it creates the perfect shadow; not too orange, not too ashy, and definitely not patchy, which is rare on my slightly dry cheeks. The veil is an okay 2-in-1 moisturizer and primer, but I'm not sure I'd pay the full price for it. It didn't do anything unique to my skin. The liner is pretty decent, and lasts 5-6 hours on me without creasing or otherwise coming undone. The brush that came with it though? It might just be the star of this kit! I've never gotten this crisp a line with a gel-and-brush liner before. Can't say anything about the mascara yet, because I don't like having more than one open at the same time. Oh, and the box is very nice! Sturdy and elegant, you can use it to organize your makeup. I put all my skincare there already.
Always worth taking a chance on the box offers! Having tried illamasqua brand before I wasn't disappointed. Products are high quality and my fave in the box was the mascara. Amazing value.
Lovely choices and all in use!
Lovd the hydra veil not keen on the mascara and the sculpt just seems to dissappear in to nothing, the mascara doesn't really so anything either loveeeee the eyeliner though and the brush they're both amazing especially even for beginners super easy to use and very precise!!
Overall a good buy value for money is definitely exceed
If I didn't have a lot of Illanasqua products, I would repurchase it. The silhuette gel is a really good contouring shade. The masquara is average - gives definition but no volume or thickness/fullness. The gel liner, while being incredible to apply, smudges at the corners of the eyes within few hours after application. The lipstick, while being nude, leans too much custard, making my teeth look more yellow. The liner is really fine and convenient. The hydra veil is their bestseller, but I don't see the reason why, really. It is hydrating - I must say, but my makeup doesn't stay any longer than without it.
I would recommend this box to those new to Illamasqua, since it gives a nice array of products, but would I repurchase a similar arsenal? No, just because they always make these boxes with Sillhuete (have 2 of them), liner (have 3 of them) and hydra veil (have 3 of them). But, you see, I do end up buying them :), they are really travel & purse friendly.
