As I couldn't make Wednesday's gathering Alex & Hayley and a few other lovely bloggers sat around drinking smoothies and waxing lyrical over the collection...
Illamasqua describe the collection as:
Unpredictable, Uncharted and Unnatural, 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.
(l-r Emerge, Mould, Hollow, Dab, Bedaub and Delirium)
The collection is full of gorgeous products but the new cream pigments and eyeshadows really stood out to me, they're a brilliant mixture of wearable lovely shades with a daring Illamasqua twist on it.
I've already got Purity,Stagnate and Bacterium on my list!
The new cream pigments really do deliver on every level. They're creamy but long lasting and fiercely pigmented.

Two beautiful, wearable brights are included in the collection and feel a lot creamier than previous Illamasqua matte lipsticks.

The two sheer lipglosses still pack a punch with pigment but accompany the lipsticks brilliantly...
If you feel like going all out, why not get to grips with Illamasqua's second thumb nib designed by Mike Pocock.
I went away with some lovely goodies to play with including the AMAZING Glister Precision Ink, a lovely oyster eyeliner...
