Illamasqua Extinct Collection

Illamasqua Extinct Collection

Illamasqua’s collection launches always have us swooning. Discover the inspiration behind their latest launch, the Extinct Collection, as well as our breakdown of the gorgeous new products.

The Inspiration Behind the Collection

Illamasqua never release new products without a story behind them and the Extinct Collection is no exception.

Whilst all of the new shades and products are perfect for getting all of this season’s best makeup trends, they also represent Illamasqua’s stand on sustainability and diversity.

We are seeking to discover, explore, understand and respect the EXTINCT. The living parts of the natural world that are no more, and the crisis of survival many now face. – Joe Corre, Illamasqua Chairman

Alongside this collection, they have announced their new Green Policy, making a commitment to sustainability; they encourage diversity in everything. Use the colours to experiment with beauty; be brave, be creative.

The Extinct Collection

The new range consists of 8 different products, all inspired by the colours and textures in nature. This is all about rich colours and multi-dimensional tones.

    Illamasqua Pure Pigment - Axolotl

    Illamasqua’s loose pigments are amazingly versatile; use on their own or over other makeup, use them on the lips, eyes and cheeks.

    The Extinct collection contains the shade Axolotl. Amazingly fine, it is a holographic shimmer that can give incredible depth; we love to apply it in the centre of the lips on top of our lipstick for a 3D effect.
