Dystopia is the complete opposite of Sirens; this collection is based around a monochrome black and silver palette shot with bright pink and purple accents. The core look is very cool-toned and futuristic, although pieces can be adapted to translate into a more everyday wearable look.
Things I will be buying:
Liquid metal silver - perfect for winter, I'd wear this dabbed in the middle of my lid or to highlight my tearduct over a smoky eye.
Pale iridescent pink/lilac pigment - we were all ooh-ing over this under the artificial lights. It looks like fairy dust, and Alex Box used this to highlight the cheekbones on the model she used as well as on the eyes.
Bright pink lipstick - this seems more creamy than previous lipsticks I've swatched from Illamasqua, and this looked gorgeous with the pink/lilac pigment dabbed over it. For daytime, this would look good with an otherwise simple face with a flick of black liner on the eyes, or the dark pigment used as a sparkly liner. It's a true bright pink with no noticeable blue/fuschia tones.
It was great to catch up with other bloggers too - Helen, Tali, Jobetterdays and I all went for a beer and a catch-up after the event.
I'll post pictures and further thoughts on the eyeshadows I received after I've had more of a play with them.
