Illamasqua Releases Naked Strangers Summer 2012 Collection

Hello Beauty Mavens,

Illamasqua 4-Colour Liquid Metal Palette 01British beauty brand Illamasqua launched its summer collection Naked Strangers, which focuses its attention on subtler shades of gold, nude, and peach, according to FashionBite. The set includes nail varnish, sheer and intense lipglosses, powder and cream blusher, and neutral and liquid metal eye shadow palettes.

Naked Strangers captures inner glows and depths. The deeply and darkly alluring exists alongside ethereal shimmering brilliance. We are complex and multifaceted whilst also being naked to the world,” said Alex Box, Illamasqua creative director, according to Temptalia.

“[The collection] represents everything about borderlines…the human edge between romance and permissive intimacy…a step beyond control, a step past the edge and a collection of gilded moments upon the tip of sensation. Beautiful nudes with metallic edge set amongst eclectic textures,” said David Horne, Illamasqua director of product development.

Temptalia speaks of nude tones with rich gold found in both the beautiful makeup collection and the creative concept of the campaign.

Illumasqua believes the collection to be “a place where alter egos are laid bare and naked flesh is a source of unashamed inspiration. In this delicate tipping point between intimacy and pleasurable detachment, we revel in the unknown.”


The collection features Nail Varnish ($14) in Monogamous Matte, a creamy flesh pink; Faithful, a coppered metal; and Swinger Glistening, a platinum gold.

Other products include an Intense Lipgloss ($20) in Stranger, a platinum gold shade,; Sheer Lipgloss ($20) in Intimacy Nude, a pinkish brown; Powder Blusher ($24) in Naked Rose Neutral, a beige-brown; and Cream Blusher ($24) in Zygomatic Naked, also a pinkish brown.
