Just before Christmas, Illamasqua released a handful of new products just in time for the festive period. As the huge Illamasqua fan that I am, I went straight to the website to order the Sculpting Duo. Sold out. SOLD OUT. I know, I shouldn’t be buying myself Christmas presents before the main event but I needed it so badly. Fast forward to Christmas Day and my pile of presents, and imagine my surprise and utmost delight to find that my amazing Mum had managed to get hold of one for me. Yippee!!
Illamasqua Sculpting Duo has two powders within the sleek black packaging. Heliopolis is the contouring powder and Lumos is the highlight.
Heliopolis is the most perfect shade for contouring, it is a natural brown colour that doesn’t look to dark on the skin nor too orange. In fact, I would actually say its the best contouring colour I have ever used.
Lumos is a champagne gold coloured shimmery highlight, that can be used to illuminate your cheekbones, cupids bow and down the centre of your nose. It is quite shimmery so a little goes along way.
As usual, the pigmentation is of the highest standard and the longevity of the product is fantastic. I wear the Sculpting Duo alongside Illamasqua Hussy, and apply this using the Blush Up Brush for perfectly sculpted cheeks.
