A tiny ASOS order.

When I say a tiny order, I mean tiny but the sheer extent of the bargain that was calling out at me was too much to resist. I make it sound like I was beaten with a stick and forced to purchase but I'm telling you, it's the free delivery option that ASOS offers now that's so ridiculously tempting. Anyhoo, I saw that the gorgeous Emma had recently purchased Bronx eyeshadow by Illamasqua for only £7.50 - my 'bargain alert' alarms started ringing because Illamasqua shadows retail for £15 each! If you've been following my blog for a while you'll probably know that I am a teeny bit obsessed with Illamasqua; I just love everything the brand represents and so before I knew what was happening a lovely confirmation email from ASOS plopped into my email inbox. Oops!

Illamasqua describe Bronx as a pale bronze-gold which is exactly what it is; if you have blue or green eyes you need this in your collection! It's still available from ASOS for £7.50 along with a few other colours, so if you like to grab yourself a bargain you know where to head to.

I don't own many eye shadows at all so I can't compare this to a MAC shadow or anything, but I can say that this feels beautifully creamy and I imagine that it'll blend like a dream! I'm very impressed with the pigmentation as I have been with all the Illamasqua products I've tried - you really do need the smallest amount!

Do you have any Illamasqua shadows? What are your favourite eye colours to wear?

  10. I bought Bronx too when Asos were having their sale! The other colours which were half price were a bit too bright for me - don't think I can pull off bright yellow eyes! Bronx is a bit more orangey than I was expecting although I think it will look a lot better against my skin in the summer when I'm not chicken white! Lol xx
