Illamasqua Equinox Collection

Published: 2015-10-19 by Marina Milojević in Makeup

Illamasqua has just released a new makeup collection named Equinox. Equinox is a term that refers to an astronomical event in which the plane of Earth's equator passes the center of the Sun. As the famous makeup brand explains, Equinox symbolizes a desert at night, consumed by the starry skies and the constellations of the universe. The deep, nocturnal theme resonates through the shimmering textures and dark pigments. The dazzling and mysterious glow of the stars is enlivened in sparkling shades of broken golds and glistening oysters, while the burnished hues evoke the endless canopy of nocturnal sky.


Alex Box, Illamasqua Creative Director, describes the collection like this: “Equinox is a desert princess. A luminous, nomadic beauty adorned in resplendent broken golds, lustrous pigments, deep burnished hues and sparkling accents, which are inspired by the depth and mystery of the deserts endless canopy of stars.”

The mystic new Equinox Collection is a rather small range that includes a gold liquid eyeliner, an eyeshadow palette, a metallic creamy eyeshadow, a rich red lipstick, a trio of pearlescent metallic nail polishes and a pair of false eyelashes. The range is complemented with two Mini Brush Sets, three shades of Pure Pigment, and Illamasqua’s recently introduced Radiance Veil.
