I used the Illamasqua Delirium cream pigment in an eye look yesterday and despite my usual habit of showing you swatches before looks with the colours in use, I'm going to do things in reverse order.
Delirium is described as a rosy taupe. I think that's fairly accurate, as you can probably tell from the pan it's quite a murky colour. When sheered out it's not dissimilar to the colour of the natural shadows on my face, so it's good for adding definition. I've used it here as an eyeshadow base but I have seen others use it to good effect as a blusher.
MAC Painterly paint pot
Delirium applied with fingers from lash line to just above the crease
Spectacle eyeshadow from the Le Metier Le Cirque Kaleidescope, applied over Delirium
MAC Brule used from above crease to brow (to blend out any hard edges)
Highlighter end of RBR Eyes Wide Open pencil to highlight brow bone
Brightener end of RBR Eyes Wide Open used on lower waterline
RBR Lacquer liner
No.7 Exquisite Curl mascara
I somehow managed get a very lopsided application, hence the lack of face on pictures. Personally I prefer the heavier application on the right hand side of the last two pictures. Despite using an eyeshadow over the cream, I still experienced some creasing after about 5 hours wear. Next time I will use Too Faced Shadow Insurance instead of Painterly to see if this minimises creasing further.
The Toxic Nature collection was released on the Illamasqua website today, have you ordered anything already? I still have Glister and Bacterium at the top of my list.
Disclosure: Delirium cream pigment was one of the items in my event bag. The No.7 Exquisite Curl mascara was also a PR sample.
