Illamasqua Harem

Tonight's post is going to be a quickie. I don't know how the week got away from me again. Life is flying by people. 

This is Illamasqua Harem. Illamasqua's website describes Harem as a "bright mauve pink." Personally I'd classify it as a purple because it leans more purple on me, but it might be different on other skin tones. For my swatch I have two thin coats, that were applied easily. Illa's always apply and wear like a dream, you can't go wrong. It's too bad this brand pulled out of the US. I hope they come back soon.




 So...do you think this is a pink or a purple?

Enjoy & until next time, Amy Lee

    1. Right?! I totally thought it was purple until I looked it up and Illa was all "it's a pink."

  14. It does seem like a lavender toned pink, but it's stunning! I have one polish from Illamasqua and I still haven't tried it. *facepalm*

    1. I think it's one of those shades that will always be classified as one or the other depending on who you talk too.
