Havoc Precision Liner and Morale Blusher were two of the items I was most taken with from the Theatre of the Nameless collection. I like Illamasqua blushers and I was keen to see how the shimmer formula would match up. I'm pleased to report that it's another smooth, easy to apply formula that lasts well. I realised when I swatched it that the colour is quite sheer which works very well the luminous quality of this pink. It results in a glowing effect on the cheeks and it makes the colour easier to wear than you might expect. I'm also pleased to report that the shimmer is very fine. I use a Hakuhodo Medium Pointed Yachiyo brush to apply this blusher.
Havoc Precision Liner is a rich aubergine colour. It definitely applies as a colour rather than an almost black. I find the pointed sponge tipped applicator relatively easy to use but I can't apply a very fine line. Part of this is due to the texture of the liner which is quite 'thick'. It takes a little while to dry too. I love how it looks when applied and it makes a nice change from black or brown. It lasts well too.
I applied both Havoc and Morale together keeping everything else very simple. I just added lots of mascara and a slick of Rouge Bunny Rouge sheer lipstick in Murmurings. I'm very pleased with how it turned out (apart from the foundation, the match looked better in person). The cheek colour feels like quite a statement and I suspect with heavier makeup, I wouldn't feel as comfortable. I'm actually quite tempted to go back for Ambition now.
Disclosure: I received Morale Blusher as part of my event bag and I purchased Havoc liner myself.
