With their eye always ahead of the trends, Ilia have struck gold again with their new drop for Autumn 2016. Think lip shades in the most flattering berries and nudes, an extended range of foundation shades and the sleekest of brushes that’ll get you applying like a pro. Ilia’s seasonality means that whatever time of year, you can trust them to offer a palette of fresh makeup inspiration.
This time around, we’re particularly enamoured with their brushes. The brand are renowned for their iconic brushes, which are all cruelty-free and produced with high grade, synthetic Taklon - an easy to clean fibre that’s super soft and luxurious on the skin. With a buff, lip and finishing powder brush added into the mix, finger application is a thing of the past.

For flawless complexion and makeup application ease, Ilia’s new Perfect Buffing Brush is densely packed with bristles to let you buff in cream and liquid formulas, creating a barely-there finish. Top it off with a sweep of powder using their Finishing Powder Brush - a beautifully designed brush with an angled dome tip to help push the powder into the skin, rather than it sitting visibly on the surface. Magic! And a brush collection wouldn’t be a brush collection without something for the lips. The Defining Lip Brush does exactly what it says on the tin - applies lip colour with definition and precision, thanks to its nifty retractable handle for extra control. Plus, the accompanying lid means you can load up the brush with colour, pop on the lid and take it out for the night without fussing with jars and lipstick. You heard it here first.
Get your new Finishing Powder Brush into action with the Fade Into You Soft Focus Powder Pot - a lightweight powder that applies like a breeze, leaving skin looking fresh and translucent. The talc-free formula doesn’t sit on skin, instead simply minimising oiliness and making skin look super soft to touch!
Three limited edition lipstick shades have been introduced for Autumn and frankly, we’ve fallen for each. The Brides is a tan-toned pink which will warm up any makeup look during the cold months; Madam Mina is a duskier, blush pink, ideal for after hours and the final shade, Lucy’s Party, is an oxblood red for a Christmas wine-stained pout that’ll see you through until next year.
Ilia’s Vivid Foundation is as unique as organic foundations come. Packed with soothing Aloe Vera and healing Green Tea, we can’t recommend this foundation more, especially for those with sensitive skin. The new shades - Kalahari and Atacama - are welcome additions to Ilia’s existing colours, one with gold undertones, one with yellow. Sweep on for an even, semi-matte finish.
