Love It or Leave It...Illamasqua Alter Ego Mystery Selection

We've got an interesting new "Love it or Leave it" product from Sephora that we wanted to feature today...

Have you guys heard about Illamasqua's Alter Ego Mystery Selection box? Inside you'll get 10 full size products, but here's the catch...eight of them will be a surprise! A gorgeous lilac nail polish and a nice rosy pink lipstick are a given, but the other eight products will be random.

Are you up for a little risk-taking and willing to throw caution to the wind in the name of having a little fun with your makeup? Or are you leery of not being able to know exactly what you're getting for your money? We can't wait for you guys to weigh in!

What Sephora says...

What it is:
A mystery box that features Illamasqua's bestselling nail varnish in Jo’mina and Lipstick in Fable—plus eight full-size surprise Illamasqua products.

Made for the makeup experimentalist, this mystery box is a great way to delight and discover in Illamasqua and create a totally unique look with a chip-resistant nail varnish in electric lilac, a long-wearing lipstick in a beautiful bright rose pink matte finish, as well as eight surprise shades.

The array of mystery products include: Liquid Metal, a rich and highly pigmented metallic cream that grabs full attention wherever it's applied; Intense Lipgloss, a high-shine, color-rich gloss that creates lips that look full and glossy, without feeling sticky; Sheer Lipgloss in a sensual, sheer color designed to enhance your lips; Cream Blusher for highlighting your cheekbones, shaping your face, building, and blending with fingers or a brush to create the color intensity you desire; Medium Pencil, designed to glide over skin and create a long-lasting, color-true finish; and Cream Eye Shadow that’s easy to apply and blend.

  1. If I was really into make up, I will def take this deal! :)

    I'm having a giveaway on my blog if you're interested :)

  2. This would be such fun! It's easy to just keep going with the same old same old, so spicing it up a little and trying something new is a great idea!

  3. This sounds very exciting, some surprises can be good and its fun guessing what else would be in the box, if it was offered here, I would definitely subscribe!

  4. Nice! I love this set. Thanks for sharing <3

  5. This looks really cool! I've only ever used one nail polish from the brand, so it'd be a great way to get into Illamasqua. I would love it if NARS, Urban Decay, or Tarte came out with one of these :)
    Also, is everyones box the same?

  6. oh wow, from $200 to $60 -- that's a really good deal! :) i've never tried illamasqua products before, but i would definitely love to! :D

  7. I would leave it just b/c I'm not in to make up that much.

  8. LOVE IT! Sometimes I just need some fun with my makeup! I always research everything I buy so I have shopping lists months in advance. It would be nice to get a sweet surprise!

  9. Wow. This looks way more luxurious than most beauty boxes. Those shadows look so pretty.
