Illamasqua Christmas 2009 LE Gift Sets

Posted by Lipglossiping On November - 28 - 2009

These are the first Xmas releases Illamasqua have put out, last year they were too busy being all shiny and ‘noo’ to get into the Christmas spirit, so I was interested to see what they had wrapped up for us this year!


Golden Goddess


Containing: Liquid Metal Solstice and Pure Pigment Furore with a Medium Pencil in Sophie and the fabulous false lashes 019.

Silver Seductress


Containing: Liquid Metal Phenomena and Pure Pigment Android with a Medium Pencil Sophie and false lashes 019.

The gift sets cost £54 each, saving £12 if you were to buy each product separately and can be purchased online.

Which is your favourite of the two?

  1. I’m still not feeling the Illamasqua thing to be honest – they’re both nice sets but don’t scream ‘you must buy me’. Neither have any of the MAC sets … all a bit blah right now.

    I’m feeling rather happy with just my Sleek Sunset & Graphite palettes :)

    I own most of this stuff already – *books into a clinic for makeup addiction*

  3. Yinnie says:

    I’m kinda digging gold atm, my sleek graphite has fuilfilled my black/silver thing for this season haha.

  4. Lisa says:

    I think Gold rocks, but the only thing I want to try out of it is the Liquid Metal Solstice and Sophie Pencil, so may just get those some other time.

  5. @LionLovingTiger – Lots of money to spend on other people this Christmas then? 😀

    I’m loving the liquid metals, the other bits I can take or leave.

  6. @MizzWorthy *tells them not to let you out until you give Lipglossiping all your makeup*

  7. @Yinnie – I’m not a huge fan of the Graphite palette, but I prefer the golden goddess version of these anyway xx

  8. @Lisa – Yes, unless you’re wanting the lot… then it’s best to get them separately. I do keep meaning to get the Liquid Metals, but invariably something else captures my attention and leapfrogs it in the queue. I’ll bemoan the fact I didn’t get them when they’re discontinued though – watch this space!

  9. Redtiger21 says:

    OOh I like the look of the gold one best!

  10. RedTiger21 – Yay! Another GoldenGoddess x

    If I had money I would be tempted by the gold set. Deffo, golden girl at heart. In the reality of the world, would probably be tempted to buy just the lashes. I am scared of illamasqua. There are some really disappointing shadows I have heard of!
