Illamasqua Burst Powder Eye Shadow Review

9:00 am











I was gifted the Illamasqua Burst powder eye shadow for Christmas by a work colleague. I've never bought Illamasqua makeup before, I normally stick to mac, so this was a good chance to try out their makeup and see how good it is. 

I wasn't impressed with the packaging the eye shadow came in. I was expecting better from such a high end brand. The name of the product looked like it had been stuck onto the back, which didn't scream high end. I also thought it would have been nicer if the label on the box displayed the colour of the eyeshadow, not just an off white/yellow colour, which doesn't really mean anything to the buyer. 

Packaging aside, I was impressed with the eye shadow itself. Burst is a blue green colour that has a matte finish. It is very pigmented and blends well with other colours. Even though the colour is bold and well pigmented, it doesn't stain white makeup brushes and cleans off easily. It stays on the eyes all day without needing a touch up.

I would recommend the Burst powder eye shadow as it can be used for both everyday, costume and evening makeup. It can be mixed with other colours to create a lovely smokey eye, or worn on its own with some black eyeliner. You can purchase it from Illamasqua for £15.50, which is a little on the expensive side, but it is made to such a high quality, so the price is expected. 

Have you tried any Illamasqua eyeshadows before?
