Illamasqua Fall 2012 Preview – Generation Q Collection

Illamasqua’s very hilarious (and mad genius) Director of Product Development, David Horne, was on hand to offer a sneak peek at their newest collection – Generation Q, a wonderful (and Illamasqua’s most subtle) range of cosmetics that breaks the age barrier in makeup and celebrates ageless beauty without restrictions. Expect to see these beautiful collection (whose lipstick and lipgloss colors I am especially in love with) on September 6th. Let’s get acquainted, shall we?

The collections features products that are light reflective products as opposed to age reflective. It has been formulated to give women of all ages the tools to express their alter ego, no matter their age, race, etc. “Illamasqua is standing up against the industry rule of “only wearing matte” products and concealing your real identity under a sea of beige after a certain age. Complimenting and empowering your true beauty, shimmer is adorned to accent, highlight and lift features.” The new collection features a new palette, lipsticks, lipglosses and nail varnishes.
