Illamasqua Toxic Nature Collection for Spring/Summer 2011

By  |  14 Comments

Unpredictable, uncharted and unnat ural, Illamasqua unleashes Toxic Nature for Spring/Summer 2011, a colour collection born from a visionary concept of nature fighting back against the genetically modified society that plunders it. Illamasqua has created the Toxic Nature collection through a palette of lurid shades, corrupted hues and glistening muted tones that offer intoxicating versions of their original selves.

“Having an artist background highly influenced this collection. The medium of paint when it is in various states [mixed on a palette, on a canvas, the colours mutating when you wash your brushes] inspired the product colours of Toxic Nature. Blends, washes, dabs, drips, daubs and splashes of colour are evident in the imagery of the collection.” Alex Box, Illamasqua Creative Director.

Like nature itself, it’s not all sweetness and light. Shades of mint, mushroom, plum, orange and rose are distorted with rich textures and pops of acid-infused brightness that command attention and draw you in…

    I love the gorgeous promo pics. Is it just me, or does the girl with the butterfly perched on her hand look like Ashley Greene?

    i agree these promo pics look amazing – along the lines of the alice and wonderland film but i hate seeing make up ads which are so airbrushed! It just leads to major disappointment as the products have no hope of living up to the ads! xxx
