Now it was either Aoife at A little Infinity or Audrey at The Nail Affair who pointed me in the direction of this brilliant find! I’m amazed this product sort of quietly arrived under the radar. Illamasqua released two limited edition mystery boxes in conjunction with Debenhams. Basically it’s the makeup equivalent of a Lucky Dip bag!

There are two versions the Alter Ego Mystery Selection and the Eyes and Nails Mystery selection. I bought both but today I’m talking about my favourite the Alter Ego. This box contains 6 products. You know you are getting the Liquid Metal in Electrum and a nail polish in Collide but after that it’s a mystery. Well I was very happy to solve mine because I love the products I got! Here’s the haul…

The nail polish is a bright neon pink, which is so perfect for summer. The liquid metal is Electrum a strong creamy gold, that you can use on face and body. This is a really versatile little product and I’m now the proud owner of three of these! I also got one of these in my British Beauty Blogger Edit Box here.

I feel like I lucked out with the lip products I got. Tramp is the lipstick, a lovely pure red with a cool tone to it.The intense lipgloss in Femme is a pinky red which I love the look of, I can’t wait for a night out to try it properly!

The eyeshadow is a great practical matte charcoal grey. I’ll get great use of this as a smoky eyeliner. I nearly squealed with delight when I saw the blusher! I’m currently in love with my Illamasqua blush in Tremble. Tremble is more coral toned than this baby pink lovely. I can tell I am going to love this already! Swatches of all the products below…

This Mystery Box is one of my favourite new things and the biggest shock of all about this is it only cost €23!! All of these products add up to well over €100 at normal prices so it’s such amazing value. They are still selling these in Debenhams on Henry St and online at Debenhams.ie today. Just remember you’re not guaranteed the same contents, check out these ladies links to see what they got!

    Oh wow, you got an amazing box! I love the look of all those products – the blush and the lipstick are especially gorgeous! I picked up a third one of these at the blogger meet-up – they’re almost addictive!
