Illamasqua Does Shine With Subtlety


Is there such a thing as too much sparkle? Yes, if you ask us, but we’re definitely in the minority this time of year. Considering the sheer amount of tinsel, twinkling lights, and general ornamentation out there, if you must partake in shimmer madness, we suggest concentrating your energies on your fingertips. Illamasqua’s new Pantomime Nail Duos fit the bill, offering two different existing shades from the vampy line’s collection of lacquers paired with a complementary sparkle polish to amplify the color. We’re partial to Boo!, which places Baptiste, a metallic aubergine, alongside a bottle of red, pink, blue, and silver flecks—a combination that will make a respectably raucous addition to any party you might have on your calendar. Bonus: If you spend roughly $107 on the Illamasqua Web site between now and December 17, shipping is free—a big plus, since crossing the pond via Royal Mail can get pricey.
