When Illamasqua announced their new I'mperfection collection I knew I had to check it out and make a teeny tiny purchase. Based on the notion that no-one should ever hide their flaws because we're all imperfectly perfect, Illamasqua say, 'Stand up and show the world what makes you imperfectly perfect. We want you to highlight the features that other brands encourage you to cover up. Because life isn't about finding yourself, life is about celebrating who you really are.' Amen to that sisters.
The I'mperfection collection encompasses a range of gorgeous 'speckled' nail polishes, a trio of powder blusher duos, lipstick, a blusher brush and an intense green lipgloss. While not all of the colours or products will be to everyone's taste, you're bound to find something you love, and for me that was the quintet of beautiful nail polish that reminds me, and I'm sure a lot of other people, of those yummy Cadbury Mini Eggs!
I chose the colour 'Scarce' which is a gorgeous dusky pink with tiny specks of grey and black suspended in the polish. Safe to say, however, if I had enough pennies in the bank I'd have bought one of every colour, they all look so fun when painted together on the hand!
The polish applies beautifully as I would expect any Illamasqua product would. It only took two coats for my nails to dry semi-matte with a hint of shine and the flecks of grey and black are not too overbearing on the nails to make them look messy and overcrowded, just perfect. I am in love <3
