Illamasqua Boudicca - Swatches and Review

Nothing to Disclose 
*This product is Cruelty Free 


Illamasqua Boudicca





Recently, while sleep-surfing (what? yes I AM going to blame it on middle-of-the-night grogginess) I ran across an Illamasqua polish I'd never seen - a Bloomingdale's Exclusive. Not sure if it will remain exclusive to Bloomies or not, but right now I think that's the only place to get it.

It's an intense red orange polish with micro-flakes! When I checked for swatches I didn't find much and what I did find made me think it might be a textured polish - difficult to work with. WRONG! I almost didn't order it! The micro-flakes appear to be pink or maybe color-shifting from pink to orange?

The photos are really quick - ONE COAT with NO top coat. The formula was smooth and easy, intensely pigmented and positively glowing. No issues to report at all.

What do you think? Did you order yet? If not, I'm recommending this one outright. I can't wait to see what it does with a top coat!


Some Illamasqua polishes are available here in the states at Sephora but this one is a Bloomingdale's exclusive, at least for now.

  3. Thank you for this review. I also was eyeing this polish since it came out but the one and only swatch I saw made it look lumpy and drippy. So as much as I loved the color I was afraid for the formula. So as soon as I read your review I ordered it at Bloomies. Great review. I like that you always include a review on the formula of a polish that is more important to me than the color.
