So the latest thing to plop (wow that doesn't sound glamorous at all) through my letterbox are the brand spanking new Illamasqua Gel Colours and Sculpt sticks. A creamy, gel-ish stick twist up thing-a-ma-jig which is said to be the next big thing in the beauty world. It’s a unique contouring gel that adds a subtle definition to the shape with the swipe of a stick and a pad of a finger. These sticks blend beautifully, feel cooling and light on the skin and a perfect addition to a spring summer makeup bag.

I have the shades Silhouette (a scary in the pan but blends out like a trooper deep brown) and Charm (a bold coral). Both go on very light and you can build up the colour as you go along. It doesn't ever feel like you’re over applying or adding too much colour to the face due to the super light gel formula. Silhouette adds a beautiful seamless natural shadow to the face with absolute ease. It creates a beautiful natural shadow which would be perfect no makeup makeup. 

Like with a lot of Illamasqua products this would be suitable for all skin types and tones. It’s a real stand out, different product from the brand that is also something everyone can use from the most experienced makeup applier to the complete n00b.

  7. I love my Nars matte multiples to contour in the summer, but I feel like I need the "gel" like formula of the Illamasqua sticks in my life. Send help - or funds - ha!

  44. Deana Raymond;

    I was never welcomed in my Husband’s Family, I was hated by all his siblings especially his Mom, she never want seeing me around her or attending the same occasion. My Husband changed and drove me out of the house just few weeks after he visited his Mom, His mother brainwashed him and took him to evil gathering where there deceived him to join them and abandon me because my spirit will never welcome their union and I might cause heavy harm to their gathering. He accepted their request because of his mother’s influence and decided to send me away, froze my account and restricted me from seeing our kids. I took this case to so many spiritual leaders but none can bring the solutions I needed. I went online after 4 wasted months to seek for any help. I was lucky to find testimonies and recommendations about Dr. Wakina and others, but I chose Dr. Wakina because the testimonies said about him looks legit and are related to my case.

    Story short; Doctor casted the peaceful love spell on me, my husband and his family to reunite us within 7days. He said that the spell will serve as a protection to us and we will live as a happy family for the first time. Well; I was afraid because I don’t know what will be the outcome but I kept my hope and faith strong and also prayed hard for this. His spell finally worked at the date he prophesied. My husband and his family including his Mom located me, kneeling and confessing for the evil done to us and the family even when we missed our baby. I cried and accepted their apology; I knew that there didn’t do it on purpose. We are all happy as a family today and we all called and thank Dr. Wakina for the total freedom he gave to us. I regretted why I wasted time contacting local spiritual doctors when my Husband left. Thank you Dr. Wakina for making me to testify like others and I will keep spreading this great news for ages. Here is Dr. Wakina’s Email: dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com

  48. Am Luis Joyce from Canada I have tried dozens of love spells and had no success. I was online and came across Dr ALABI Spells. I was having an issue with my partner we have both been separated for 3 months. I thought I would try one more time. I was told that my case would be done in so little time. I must admit I was a bit skeptical with my past experiences and all. Dr ALABI said your problems are solved my child However a day later after casting the spell here I am back together with my partner and we are doing better then ever.If it was not for.{alabitemple@yahoo.com } I do not know how I would be able to cope with life any longer.i will also advice for any one in such or similar problems or any kind of problems should also contact him via email{ alabitemple@yahoo.com} for help Good bye.

  54. Three weeks ago I and my boyfriend had a conflict, so with that he broke up with me saying he no longer wanted to associate with me anymore, I never knew he was interested in working out his marriage with another girl, I was helpless because I loved him so much more than myself, after begging and pleading with him I realized it was out of my hands, he really was leaving me, I could not stay without him, I tried to figure things out with him but he is not listening me, he told me that he is no longer interested that I should look for someone else, I tried all my best but things were not working out, so I had no choice than to look around for help, I went into search of spell caster to help me bring him back to me with the help of spell and after searching I actually finalize to work with (maduraitemple@yahoo.com) in regards of my lover. after 3 days as Dr Madurai told that my lover will return. my lover returned in surprising way, I was chocked and was so happy I can't say how much I'm grateful, My lover not only came back to me, but has left his other girl and now has engaged me, we are getting married next month, I don't know what I would have done without this spell caster you can contact (maduraitemple@yahoo.com) him today . is spell is for a better life
