Review: Illamasqua Multi Facet Palette in Aura

Recently featured in my April 2015 Favourites, the Illamasqua Multi Facet Palette in Aura has become a firm staple in my makeup routine, and I'm sure you can see why I love it so much.

The palette contains 8 products for every area of your face, so you really can use it to create a full look for day or night. It also comes complete with a large mirror within the sleek packaging, and a surprisingly great quality double-ended brush, both very thin and one angled for perfect brow powder application.

To the left of the palette and in two large pans are an amazing cream highlighter - Gleam in shade Aurora - and a beautiful Powder Blusher in the soft pink shade Tremble. The highlighter is a pale champagne pink shade with no glitter, just a subtle iridescent sheen which is very buildable. It is one of the creamiest highlighters I've used, making it so easy to glide or pat on just with your finger in no time at all! The blusher is just as good, the powder formula being incredibly soft and pigmented with amazing durability - it's actually the only blusher I've used for a while now, and that's saying something! At the top of the section of smaller pans, the Cream Pigment in shade Hollow can be used on face, eyes, lips and body. The shade is perfect for my pale skin to use as a contour, and it glides on super easily being a cream formula and wears for around 5 hours. All of these products can be bought separately, and I think I'll definitely be repurchasing these in full-size!

Top right is a small pan of Eyebrow Cake in Thunder, which is a really wearable brown that can be built up or pared down dependent on the depth of colour you desire. It can be used dry or wet, and the brush included is perfect for applying it. The amount of product you get is actually really impressive, and despite using this product every single day for around four months, I've barely made a dent in it! Once I've completely hit pan on this, I'll definitely be buying it again as it is the perfect shade for my brows and stays put all day.

Lastly, there's a quad of four Powder Eyeshadows which includes a standard white shimmer shade Vision as well as a classic matte black with a hint of silver glitter in the shade Machine. The two other shades look slightly less wearable and I was dubious about them at first, but I've actually grown to really enjoy them. Servant is a matte peach shade which blends right into my skin, giving my lids a polished but natural look. The least wearable shade is Feint, which is a matte red/pink shade that if not used carefully can give eyes a "sore" look, but otherwise looks fabulous if blended right. I've actually been using this shade to dab between my lips when I'm wearing pink or red lipstick, and it works to give a fuller appearance to the lips since it creates a small shadow. Clever, huh?

The Illamasqua Multi Facet Palette really is a travellers dream, and I'm honestly considering picking another one up whilst it's on sale before it runs out - after all, as a limited edition palette, once it's gone it's gone!
