Illamasqua Nail Varnish In Creator

I am not sure if you know but nail polishes from Illamasqua are one of my favourites out there. Their award-winning formula is excellent and range of shades are beyond amazing – ranging from dusty greys, murky greens to neon pinks and bright reds. Most of what I own are beautiful one-coaters too.

In today’s post, I will be featuring one of their newest addition – Creator.

Each bottle of Illamasqua Nail Varnish retails at GBP13.50 for 15ml of product, made in Australia. From Singapore, you can purchase them online – either directly from Illamasqua or ASOS. Illamasqua offers free international shipping with orders over GBP75 and 10% loyalty discount from your 3rd order onwards.

On the other hand, ASOS provides free international shipping with no minimal order but I have heard of their poor packing quality – which have resulted in broken powder blushers and eyeshadows.

Illamasqua describes Creator as a magical black and magical it is. Creator contains large flecks of silver suspended in an opaque, black base. Distribution of the silver flecks applies evenly and I was able to achieve full coverage in 2 thin coats.

The irregular shape and sizes of silver flecks sparkles beautifully at night, under any form of lighting. Texture is smooth and creamy. Consistency is nice and thick (in a good way) – easy to apply without streaking.

Swatches above swatched with Nail Tek Foundation II, 2 coats of nail polish and Deborah Lippmann Addicted To Speed Top Coat.

Everything about the Illamasqua Nail Varnish in Creator is love – from texture, consistency down to the colour. I think black, dark hues with sparkles add depth and dimension and a mysterious vibe to any wardrobe. It’s edgy in a modern and understated way – and matches most of my outfits well.

Midnight from MECCA Cosmetica Painted Beauty Midnight Series (swatches here) is somewhat similar but contains multi-coloured shimmers and the silver flecks are smaller in size.

Thank you for looking.

    • You are welcome..
      Not sure if ASOS has improved their packing quality!!
      Apparently, they ship beauty products without bubble wrap or cushion..
      You will the Illamasqua nail polishes =)

  1. Temptalia always give A to Illamasqua’s nail varnish formula. Sadly ASOS does not ship Illamasqua’s nail polish to Singapore, same like they don’t ship Nars products out.

    But they do bubble wrap the items – I bought Illamasqua’s Skin Base Foundation & Blusher from them.

    • Hi Ahwish,
      Illamasqua’s nail polish formula is really good, worth a try =)
      Oh, they don’t ship NARS?
      I have ordered a bunch of NARS products from them before and that’s when I noticed they don’t wrap the items properly..
      Good to know that they do bubble wrap now =)
