Landing in a Sephora near you on April 30th, British beauty brand Illamasqua explores the supernatural side of beauty in their summer Paranormal collection. The collection includes a vibrant water resistant Paranormal eyeshadow palette ($46.50) featuring four colors ranging from Vivid Cerise (reddish pink) to Cool Green, Warm Copper and Soft Violet. The Paranormal collection also includes a lightweight highlighter ($26) that “creates a glow of extraordinary light wherever applied” and the Precision Ink water-proof liquid liner ($27.50) that goes on with a sheen and stays put all day, and then a little longer. Rumor has it that the liquid liner can also double as a nail art pen.
The real stand out in Illamasqua’s Paranormal beauty world is their limited edition collection of UV nail varnishes ($17). To the world your nails will be bright and colorful with a slight metallic finish, but to those in the know (with the assistance of a black light) all of your nail art secrets can be revealed. That’s right… these colors glow under black light. Even just saying the colors will freak people out, with names like Omen (bright green), Séance (bright violet), and Ouija (bright pink). One of the most impressive products is the UV top coat Geist, which turns every nail polish you own into a color that will glow under black lights. Next up on the agenda: plan your weekend around places that use black lights.
