As you all know i am absolutely crazy about Illamasqua i love their makeup and i love the idea of their company and what its all based upon. They have came out with another new collection, The Sacred Hour which again doesn't disappoint they have some gorgeous new colours and a new product "Skin Base Lift" but today im going to be reviewing the new eyeshadow palette called Reflection.
Colour and Pigmentation
It seems these days Illamasqua has taken a step away from always doing matte colours which i do sometimes miss in the palettes as this palette is quite shimmery and it looks to me like its laced with small particles of silver glitter. The Reflection Palette contains 4 gorgeous eyeshadows with the same texture as the Paranormal Palette in the last collection, the not quite a cream but not exactly a powder texture. They are quite pigmented which for Illamasqua is a given they would also be great for beginners because you can't really mess it up as they blend like a dream and they only apply as much as you need. The colours in this palette are Precipice (Soft Lemon), Acute (Ash Taupe), Graphica (Graphite Grey) or Dart (Toasted Bronze)
These eyeshadows are water resistant so they won't just slide off although i would suggest using a primer first then applying these so you get smooth even base to work on. They are pretty long wearing i remember using them on set and it lasted around maybe 6 hours that i was there and that was in a hot studio so if we are talking everyday i would say around 8+ hours which is really good
The packaging for this is just the same as all the other Illamasqua compacts. It has a shiny black casing with the Illamasqua Logo on top with a snap closure which makes sure it doesn't open in your bag. The best thing about these eyeshadows is they aren't powders so they won't shatter in your bag if you're throwing it about which i absolutely love.

The Good and The Bad
