This purchase was the result of my Google Reader being FULL of posts on Illamasqua's new collection; Theatre of the Nameless a few weeks ago.
(If I am honest, when this happens, I usually skim read over these posts because a lot of the time, multiple bloggers are all writting about the same product. However, when Illamasqua sent out samples to bloggers to blog about there was variation!  I think everyone got a mixture of different products, which I thought was really nice, it definitley made me read all the posts as I knew each one would be different and I could get a better idea of the collection from different people)

Androgen Cream Pigment did pop up on a couple of posts, and after reading about it I knew it had to be mine! The colour itself is gorgeous. A lovely coral pink! A girl can never have too many coral pink products in her collection! I had never tried a cream pigment before, but I loved the fact you could use it in a number of different ways. (Always a bonus in my eyes) You can use it on your lips, as a blush or on your eyes. Personally I wont be using it on my eyes, but as a blusher or lipcolour..Yes Please!

The pigment is very pigmented and is easy to blend, You can apply using your fingers or with a brush, either work (depends on what you prefer) I found that it is very long lasting on the skin, so there were no need for touch up's during the day!  It is lovely to wear on the lips but as the formula is matte, it is best to wear a lipblam under it so it goes on a bit smoother and isnt so drying. If you prefer a glossy look, you can still use it on your lips, just put a slick of clear gloss over the top!

I am a sucker for packaging and I do love the curved square shape of the pot it comes in! It does look very sleek and stylish, admittedly I sometimes have a bit of trouble taking the lid off, and I am always scared I'm going to shove a nail into it and take a chunk out one day! *Touch wood this never happens* 

It retails for £17 on the Illamasqua website, and they do accept paypal (not real money in my eyes! I feel less guilty when I pay with PP!) You can also find it on the Debenhams website and ASOS (ASOS is good as they usally have promo codes on and if you have an NUS Extra card you can get 20% off your order)

Have you got this pigment, or anything else from the collection? Let me know in the comments!

Much Love
