I get really excited each time i get to use a brand of products i've never used before. There's this thrill i can't quite explain.
So many months ago, i was contacted by Denise Tunnell, one of the owners of 'Illusions Cosmetics', and she wanted to send me some of their products to use.
Now, just in case you didn't really get that, let me explain better....
Denise and Janice Tunnell (a gorgeous set of twins) are celebrity makeup artists in the US who have worked on the faces of Gabrielle Union, Idris Elba, Regina King, Taraji .P. Henson, Kerry Washington, Terrence Howard, Josh Henderson, Rosie 'O Donnell and many more. They have also worked behind the scenes of movies like "The wedding crashers", "Stomp the yard", "Vampire Diaries", "Preachers kid", "The wire", etc.
So how could i say no? *Haff i craze ni? loool!*.
The sisters created 'Illusions Cosmetics' in 2006, and have been producing a full line of cosmetics for women of color.
They had been trying to send me these products for months now, but the packages kept getting lost in transition. Eventually, my parents were visiting the US, and Denise was kind enough to send another set of products to them to bring home to me. Finally, the products arrived, and of course i have pics to show you.......
2 lipstick palettes.
1 Perfect blush in 'Cherry bomb'.
2 Eye lights in 'Gun metal' and 'Blue sky'.
1 Gel eyeliner in 'Peacock'.
1 lipgloss in 'Drew'.
1 lipstick in 'Geranium'.
I've already done some swatches, and they are looking good....... i can't wait to use these babies! Of course i'll let you know how it goes by doing a proper review and creating a look with the products *winks*
