Illamasqua Beguile Pigment - Review

Ello lovelies!
Beguile is one the products I've had my eye on for what seems like forever! I first clapped eyes on it in one of Louise from Sprinkle of Glitters videos and instantly fell in love. It has taken me a good while to take the plunge and pick it as its normally priced at £16.50 and i didn't need it, but i sure as hell wanted it! Illamasqua have had a couple of sales recently and i picked this beauty up for around the £8 mark, making it much more affordable.

Illamasqua describe it as a shimmering white pearl, but i think it is much, much more complex than that. It is simply stunning. Its a silvery white base with gorgeous micro glitter that to my eye turns pink and green in the light. It is beautiful. So far, I've been pairing it with simple looks, mainly winged eyeliner and a bright lip. But i think it could work well in a whole host of different looks. It find its a little fiddly to apply dry, so i tend to do my eyes before my face to avoid pesky fallout issues. But it also works great wet for a more intense look.

If you're a shimmer or glitter fan, this is going to be right up your street and i really recommend checking this little stunner out. I'm looking forward to seeing how it works over a black base, since just in the lid it shows up so wonderfully.

Above are dry and wet swatches.

My swatches really don't do it justice. I've not learnt the knack to photographing glitter just yet.

Do you love it? I sure do!

You can find this online here and in Illamasqua stores. Its priced at £16.50 but Illamasqua do offer pro discount and often have sales, so keep your eye out!
