PRODUCT REVIEW | Illusions cosmetics


I'm so sorry for not posting the review when i said i would.....the truth of the matter is that i got busy and i forgot. I remembered this afternoon on my way home from picking the kids from school. "Choyi" like Zuri would say.... that means 'Sorry' in her language.

Ok, let's do this.....

First is the Blush Perfect in 'Cherry Bomb'. This is a nicely pigmented pink blush which applies sheer and smoothly. However, it's buildable, so you can apply it till it's as intense as you would like it to be. I used this blush in my last makeover post, and i loved it.

Next, we have the Eye lights which are loose shimmery eyeshadows. I was sent the 'Gun Metal' and the 'Blue Sky' shades. I used them for my last makeover post too. The eye lights also have great color pay-off , and they are smooth and blend quite well. There's nothing as annoying as an eyeshadow that is stubborn when you try to blend it. These Illusion Cosmetics eye lights blend well, so have no fear.

However, my grouch with the eye lights is that once the little containers get tossed around in your makeup purse, you have to be careful when opening them because the powder fills up the little plastic cover with holes that you see in the picture below. So if you are not careful while opening, you're going to have a major spill. That's why i prefer to use pressed eyeshadows.....i hate messy makeup purses.

Next is the Illusions Cosmetics gel eyeliner in 'Peacock'. This one has a really nice color, and it glides on smoothly as you apply it. Like most gel eyeliners, when it dries, it doesn't budge. It just stays put till you wipe it off with oil. If you try to wash it off with water, then i wish you good luck *looool!*. I used it to line my upper lash-lines in the last makeover post.

 Ah, one of my favorite products in the lot. I love nude glosses. This one is named 'Drew', and it has gold specks/glitters in it. It applies really sheer, and if you want, you can apply two coats of it on your lips *i'm usually good with one coat though*. I like the fact that it's not overly sticky in that annoying way that some lip gosses do. 'Drew' is just right.

 And then, 'Geranium' is a long-lasting matte orange lipstick . I have a lot of orange lipsticks already, and i'll be giving this one away soon. Stay tuned for details.


Finally these are 5-pan lip palettes which i absolutely love! They are going to my private stash for my own use. The shades include 'Speak up', 'Paso doble'. 'Classic red', 'Cranberry', and 'Currant'. I used 'Currant' in the Illusions makeover i posted a couple of days ago, and it was just wonderful! I'm not a fan of lipsticks in a pan, but this one, i really love.

The palettes don't have names to tell them apart....i really wish they had..Instead, they are both called 5-pan palettes. It's just the shades in the palettes that have names.

The shades in the second palette include 'Nude', 'Bare pink', 'Peach', 'Lovely' and 'Fudge'.

The lipsticks apply well, but they have a slightly thick consistency, and they are long-lasting.

At first, i thought this was a concealer palette.

Illusions Cosmetics doesn't have a distributor in Nigeria just yet, but sometime in the near future, they will. But in the meantime, you can order their products online

Alrighty dears....That should be all.

Let's do this again tomorrow....

  1. Falling in love with the gel eyeliner already.. great review

  2. My husband and I have been married for 7 years and together for 11. We have 3 children, ages 16 months, 4 and 6. He recently left me and moved in with the woman he has been seeing for only 2 months. We have been living with my parents for a few years because I have been going through school and he has been just working security. He went through the police academy and has been having a hard time getting a police job. He is also in the Army National Guard. He was deployed in Afgahnistan Jan. 2014 – May 2015. I really think he has ptsd and depression. For the last few months he has been very distant from me and the kids. He hasn’t been hanging out with friends or doing activities he would normally do on a regular basis. He would kept saying we need to fix things. He would say I do this wrong and that. It was like he was trying not to love me. One day he’d kiss me and showed affection, we were still having sex, then the next day nothing. I’ve been trying to get him to see a counciler but he won’t. He has admitted he has PTSD and other issues but then other days he says he doesn’t. He thinks this women he is with now is his soul mate. He met her online and lied saying he has been divorced for two years. She has found out he’s married and still wants to be with him. I don’t see it working out. I love my husband so much, I hate what he has done. I just wish he would get some help if it is because of PTSD and depression. Do you think it might be? I still want him back. I was totally devastated and confused until a old friend of mine told me about a spell caster on the internet Chief Nwaluta Mallam Zack who help people with the relationship and marriage problem by the powers of love spells, at first I doubted if such thing ever exists but decided to give it a try, when I contact him, he helped me cast a spell and within 48hours my husband came back to me and started apologizing, now he has stopped going out with that lady and he his with me for good and for real. i want You my friends who are passing through All this kind of love problem of getting Back their husband, wife , or ex boyfriend and girlfriend to contact him on this Email: { } you can also contact him on his website . Thanks you Chief , i will always be testifying about your good work.
