Illamasqua Cream Pigment - Hollow

Illamasqua Cream Pigment Hollow

Illamasqua Cream Pigment is a colour-rich matte, water resistant and crease resistant product that can be used on eyes, lips, face and body. 

I don't think this product receives the praise it deserves. Normally when there is a product that's pretty amazing Bloggers go crazy but I've never seen a review on this (not saying there are not any floating around.) All of these Cream Pigments are multi-use. They can be used on the lips and with a little gloss have a lovely lasting effect. They can also be used as an eye shadow base to keep your eye shadow in place as this product has amazing staying power. If I'm wearing neutral eye shadow (browns) I normally reach for this over any other eye primer. The Illamasqua website states that you can also use this product on your body but personally, I haven't had any need to use it on my body area so obviously can't make a comment on that. Lastly, my latest use for this product is contouring. I seen someone use 'Hollow' as a Contour on YouTube and thought "why didn't I think of that" haha. Using a Cream as a contour can take a bit of practice if you're used to powders but can have a beautiful effect once you master it. As this product is water resistant, it lasts all day. Depending on your taste, you could also use this as a contour base and add powder, but that's mainly personal preference, some people like to contour darker/heavier than others. I've had this product over 6months and looks as if it's hardly been touched, it now a staple in my make up bag and I will be re-purchasing.
