Ok, so I am a bit late. But I did hit my local big Sephora and got some photos. I even found out what color foundation I am! I have adjusted the color as best I can. The colors are very pigmented– more so when wet. The loose pigments are fun. The liquid metalls are amazing.. and I love the matte and the glosses.
Shadows— just a few of the many colors
Shadow swatches— obviously only five colors — but note the depth of color. The loose pigments are even more so.
Intense Glosses— love these!!
Find them at Sephora.com and select Sephora stores– but I already said that.. also there is the Illamasqua website too.
