Illasmaqua Amnesty- you got me!

As you will have read the length and breadth of blog land, Illasmaqua are holding an amnesty, giving us the make up addicted a chance to swap all our dried up, falling apart and smashed make up in return for 25% off their products , old crap for shiny new lovelies. Hurrah.

For anyone who doesn't know about this yet ( in which case where have you been, it ends soon- hurry hurry...)

Illamasqua say:

Some make-up can be ordinary – dull, boring, uninspiring. But not Illamasqua’s distinctive, rule-breaking professional make-up range. For a limited time only, you can exchange your second-rate make-up for a 25% discount on Illamasqua’s highly pigmented and exceptional products that give truly extraordinary results.

How will it work?

There is no limit to how many pieces you can bring and it can be in any condition – falling apart, smashed, nearly empty, dried up… we want to help you start again!
This is your chance to get rid of the old, bland, mediocre make-up sitting at the bottom of your bag without feeling guilty throwing away barely-used make-up.
The offer is across all categories and if you bring back a boring lipstick, you can swap it for a fantastic, creamy matt Lipstick. Or how about a Cream Blusher? Or a cult Nail Varnish? Or a Powdered Metal? Or …

What will it cost me?

Nothing! You are simply giving us your old make-up in order to claim your 25% discount on any Illamasqua product. Just pop along to your nearest counter to find out more [sorry, this Amnesty does not apply to our online shop.]
The Illamasqua Make- up Amnesty will begin from 17th - 31st July and is available at:
Selfridges Oxford Street, Trafford Centre, Birmingham Bullring, Fenwick Newcastle, BT2 Grafton Street Dublin, Debenhams Glasgow, Belfast and Cardiff

So only a few days left to take advantage but I would definitely recommend it, I am new to their products and thanks to a ridiculously good, and nice MUA ended up walking away with one of their famed and hugely pigmented cream blushers, a cream foundation and an undereye concealer.

I am so ashamed I promised not to buy beauty products as well, but I feel slightly comforted as I did have a £20 voucher for the shop I got it in, so it wasn't too expensive. Plus I got the phone of chucking 3 tatty old bits of horrible makeup. Full review of my new products coming soon, but so far I can say I am impressed!
Why of why did I even go to check it out I knew I would not leave empty handed.


  1. What a great idea!

  2. That's a great idea but wonder what they will do with all the unwanted stuff they receive?? Oh who cares when there's a discount involved! x

  3. @ the Caledonista, if you go into Debenhams you can see the big box of everyone elses make up sitting out on the corner. I wanted that to play through as much as the new stuff!


Really appreciate you taking the time to comment, thanks for reading Bx
