At 6pm GMT we will be announcing the winners for the Win Your Waiting List competition - so it's still not too late to enter! Click here to visit the site and add those pieces you have been dying to try. 

For more information on what to look forward to when the collection goes live for sale EXCLUSIVELY at illamasqua.com tomorrow, take a look at our step-by-step look at what makes Toxic Nature the must have this Spring ...

An unashamedly romantic toxic tenderness, a corrupted cuteness, an incandescent innocence. The idea behind the collection was a hybrid race born out of an apocalypse, with the girls part of a generation of a mutated race with exaggerated proportions and exaggerated features." - Alex Box, Creative Director


A brand new formulation that breaks new ground in versatility - use as blush, eye colour, highlights, contours, on lips or even the hair ...

We have supplied you with an artist's palette so that you can experiment with colour - try mixing and matching these colours for maximum impact ...

Hollow - This toffee shade is perfect as a contour on paler skintones. it also works brilliantly as an eye shadow base on olive and darker skintones.

Delirium - This rose taupe shade is fantastic for contouring pale to olive skintones as well as adding a healthy flush to all skintones as a blusher or as a soft rose lip.

Mould - Because every Spring collection needs a touch of darkness, this grape shade is stunning as a base for smoky eyes or an intense, statement lip.

Emerge - This peach brightens under eye shadows, and is beautiful as a highlighter on oliver to darker skintones. It's also a very flattering blusher on paler skin tones.

Bedaub - This mint green is a wonderful eye base and flattering for all skintones. You can also mix with Satin Primer to tone down the impact and this works beautifully as a skin colour corrector to neutralise redness.

Dab - This gentle lilac is beautiful for eyes, lips and cheeks especially for a 60s look.


Bacterium - Pearlescent Ash Ochre, thanks to All You Desire and Vampy Varnish for all the swatches.

Purity - Peach

Radium - Acidic Lime

Stagnate - Grey Mauve

Gamma - Neon Orange


The opalescent shine of Glister, the newest member of the Precision Ink family, is set to break the mould with a daring, nude coloured alternative to the classic liner. Create striking looks with attitude and stand out from the crowd...

Thanks to Hell Candy for the swatch ...


Two toxic tones, Atomic and Flare, have evolved our intense, highly pigmented Lipstick into the ultimate urban survival tool for the neo-generation. Glides on smoothly, creating lips that entrance.
