Illamasqua Cream Pigment Androgen Review & Swatches


Androgen is part of Illamasqua's recently launched Theatre Of The Nameless Collection AW11.

About Illamasqua Cream Pigment:
Cream Pigment is an intensely colour-rich, crease resistant, matt formula, available in a variety of shades.
It creates the ultimate in textures on the face, eyes, lips or body. Apply with an Illamasqua brush or simply use your fingers for a buildable, water resistant, highly pigmented finish. Layer under Powder Eye Shadow and Pure Pigment for added intensity.

Color:
Androgen ~ Coral.


Likes:
♥   This is the most beautiful, most true, coral cream makeup product I've seen till date. 
♥   Super pigmented. I place my finger lightly on it, and the product still manages to cling to it. It is quite opaque too, so no worries about having to over-layer for the color to show.
♥   Non-sticky & blends to a smooth finish real quick. 
♥   Lasts for hours. It is water resistant too.
♥   Makes a good eyeshadow base [Think sunset look.] Less fallouts when using glittery eyeshadows.
♥   I adore the square bat wing pot. Sometimes not easy to open, but I wouldn't want it any other way.
♥   3-in-1 product. For eyes, face, lips (and body too)! Gotta love that.

Dislikes:
-   It doesn't mattify completely, which results in creasing after a while, especially when it's worn alone. However, if you use it as a base under another powder eyeshadow, creasing shouldn't be a problem.
-   It is too opaque for my lips, but if I'm going for statement coral lips then I wouldn't look any further.
-   Can only be purchased online [for us in this part of the world].

The color is quite similar to MUFE Aqua Cream #9 Coral (review here), but I personally prefer this one, simply because it is easier to work with.

I see myself wearing this on my cheeks a lot. If you heart coral blushers, you may not want to skip on this one. I'm so smitten with this coral, because I've been looking for a dress in this shade for the longest time! Wait, I feel like I've said this before before....Déjà vu. But ya, still haven't found it, sadly.

Price ~ 17.00 GBP (Rs.1247.00)

  1. The color is seriously tempting, though would be more wearable as blush than on the lips

  4. Pretty shade, but probably would suit more as a blush and more appropriate for fairer skin tone babes out there....

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
