my precioussssss

Can’t. aaah catch, aaaaah my breath! Because I just got off the phone from the Illamasqua counter in BT2 with the details of their Makeup Amnesty.

All you need to do is bring one piece of old makeup (any type, lipgloss, shadow, whatever!) to their Grafton Street counter and offer it up. But what do you get in return? 25% off their range!* Don’t worry if you’re like me and can’t make it there today… it’s running til 31st July.

In case you’re not familiar with the brand, it’s a UK cult range by make up artist Alex Box. Instead of using canvas, she uses skin on which to work her magic. You don’t have to go this mad, but isn’t it cool to own make-up which has colours and textures that came from the brain of this tour de force?

Incidentally, Jennie, you were just blogging about pink lipstick. Illamasqua is your man! They do an amazing pink called Avenge.

For all you non-Dublin-domiciled ladies who can’t get to Grafton Street, start begging/bribing/bullying your friends to pay a visit to BT2 for you!

OR you can check out a deal they’re running from their web site where there’s a 50% sale off while stocks last.

For all you Norn Iron and UK gals, the offer is also available at Debenhams Belfast, Selfridges Oxford Street, Manchester Trafford Centre, Birmingham Bullring, Fenwick Newcastle, Debenhams Glasgow and Cardiff.

*25% off your total purchase that is. Not per item.
