Parcel from Illamasqua's recent website sale

Hello, hello, hello,

Don't you just love receiving packages on temporarily forgotten purchases...I do!

Last month Illamasqua was having an up to 70% off sale on their website, and of course, I partook in the savings and purchased a few items :)

Included in my order was a sample of the new Illamasqua Eau De Parfum in Freak.

To be honest, I really like this fragrance. It's a strong, provocative rich Perfume. The top notes are: Black Davana, Opium Flower and Belladonna. The Heart notes are: Poison Hemlock, Datura and Queen of the Night. The base notes are: Frankincense, Oud and Myrrh. I think I'm going to be purchasing a bottle of freak after I'm done with the sample. 

And here are my purchases. I'm be posting swatches of them soon. By the way, Illamasqua is having another "up to 70% off sale" on their website.

What's the most recent Illamasqua purchase?

Looking gorgeous one lipstick at a time.


  1. Hi, I'm in Japan too and I've been wanting to do some makeup shopping online but I heard that the Japanese customs doesn't allow more than 21 makeup items per package , is that true?

  2. Hi anonymous!! Well, you've come to the right place!!! I've dealt first hand with Japanese customs(actually been to the Japanese customs building).

    Now here is the items per package allowance in Japan:

    you can have up to 24 pieces per ITEM in a package, that means:

    24 lipsticks
    24 blushes
    24 lip glosses
    24 eyeliners
    24 eyeshadows (meaning one palette is counted as a piece)
    24 face powders

    If anyone tells you otherwise, they are wrong!! I had a bit of an altercation with Japanese customs back in September of last year. I wrote about the experience on this blog, here is the link:

    Also, here is the link to the Japanese Ministry of health, labor and welfare.

    I hope this helps you and I hope to see you again on this blog, keep in touch and if you have any further questions, just write me :)

    So have no fear and go crazy with your online shopping!!!! I always do :)
