A lot of names went into the hat having left positive mantras/comments/tweets etc (such an uplifting post so take a look at the comments HERE)- and it took me a while to verify them as some people were a bit cheeky and didn't follow the rules (!) anyway, the two names picked at random using a spreadsheet and Random.org are............

Congratumalations!! Please send me an email using the title 'Chanel Giveaway' using the contact details on this page. Please send me your postal address. You have each won one Illunsion d'ombre shadow!
I have a couple of pieces by Illamasqua. The brand has seemingly sprung up out of nowhere in the last couple of years. Their style seems to be gothic inspired (and umm a few questionable names!). I know I have blogged about ore pigment before- well I added to my collection while at The Clothes Show!
|Just a small haul!|
|L-R Cream Blush, eyeshadow, pigment, 3 pencils.|
|Cream blush in Betray- notice the bubbling :(. Below, pencil in cane/|
I wanted to make my eyes look brighter so I picked up the multipurpose pencil in cane, a sort of nude yellow. I'll play around a bit with this and get back to you with my verdict! I should be able to use it to neutralise dark circles, spot scars and make me look awake. sounds heavenly!
|Eyeshadow in Tango. This has a lovely metalic hue||.|
I also picked up another pigment in Fervent, a mid brown pigment with finely milled irreidescent and copper shimmer. A prefect addition for a frosty winter look, or to blend in with Tango eyeshadow. I normally try to use a cream base when using pigments. It helps to set the powders, although sometimes I will just apply straight over my Urban Decay Primer Potion, before it has set. If I want to pack lots of pigment on, then I use good ol' Vasiline!
The last two purchases were two more multipurpose pencils in Feisty (a blue tones bright red for a vintage lip) and Adament (a smokey grey for a softer eye).
Cream Blush in Betray £16.50
Eyeshadow in Tango £15.50
