By on January 14, 2010
in Illamasqua, Spring 2010

The latest buzz from the world of Illamasqua is about their Pastel Nail Varnishes launching near the end of February.

The range includes (l-r): Blow, Wink, Nudge, Caress

The Illamasqua Blog has more details and swatch images of the polishes where they describe the formula as being comparable to Milf.

Though here’s the deal Fanatics.  As of now, the colors are set to launch in UK stores and on the Illamasqua website.  If you want to see them make their way to Sephora stores and they need to hear it.  So tell me in the comments… Would you buy these colors if there were available in the US?

    yes yes yes. I would. I would wear them. I would buy them. I would show them on my blog. I would paint the town with them!!! Please bring them to Sephora!!!! They are hot! And I love Illamasqua and it is funny that you compare the formula to Milf, because I am wearing it RIGHT NOW! The application is phenomenal. 2 coats and done.

    PS – Sephora, you should also really carry Elope and Hectic. They are stunners are we need them in the US!!!!!

    A big Illamasqua nail polish fan!!

  2. Odessa says:

    Yes, very much so! Come on Sephora! Do the right thing!

  3. Laura says:

    Abso-friggin-lutely! They are gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous colors!

  4. Jordana says:

    In a word, YES.

    In more words… OH HELLS TO THE YES.

  5. Rachna says:

    Yes! i would definitely purchase them if they came to sephora, also they need to carry Illmasqua propaganda, a beautiful dark blue jelly!

  6. Virginia says:

    No, I wouldn’t buy them. All of the swatches on their blog look nearly the same. And they look like Easter. Not my thing.

  7. Katy M says:

    Uh, yeah, I’d buy them in the US! Should we email them???

  8. Gina says:

    These are gorgeous but they remind me of the UP & AWAY colors so I think I’d pass.

  9. Lisa says:

    Yes, I would buy these. But only at Sephora’s prices. The Illamasqua site it too rich for my blood, especially with shipping. Please Sephora and Illamasqua. Please with a cherry on top. Also, PRETTY PLEASE make the Pantomime Duos available at Sephora too. If you brought them here they would sell like hotcakes!!

  10. Adriane says:

    Oh my goodness YES!!! I love Illamasqua Nail Varnsihes. I would paint my house with them if I could afford it ^^

    Sephora, here my cry! Bring more Illamasqua to the states especially he nail varnishes and we HAVE to have these if they are like MILF… I was wearing it on the weekend and it’s divine. I got several for Xmas and yes. ConVERTED!Chanel who?? ^^

  11. cate says:

    Would love to see these at Sephora. Yes please!

  12. Jess says:

    I think Illamasqua/ Sephora would be barmy not to! These are the holy grail of nail varnishes. When are they going to be releaseD? I don’t know how much longer I can contain myself.

  13. Cindy says:

    YES! Please put these in Sephora!!!

  14. Beth says:

    They look really pretty, but cool, opaque pastels tend to look really bad on my because I have olive skin. Maybe if the last two colors came in a sample…

  15. Jackie S. says:

    I would absolutely buy them, wear them, love them…I’m going to email Sephora now!

  16. Joan says:

    The swatches are amazing, I am definitely intrigued.

  17. Rebecca says:

    I have an Illamasqua counter near me and will be heading out to invest in a couple of these come pay day! I’ve got my eye on Poke as well.

  18. Jessica says:


  19. Andi says:

    YES I would buy them. I’m really in to pastels right now and there are two of these I want to get.

  20. Bridget says:

    I would definitely be interested in buying them – would certainly get me to visit my nearest Sephora!

  21. Sarah says:

    If these came to the US, I would absolutely get them! If they don’t, I would be so tempted to make an order from their site (to get all four as well as the two varnishes from the Dystopia collection). I love pastels & Illamasqua’s formula!

  22. Janice says:

    Yes, I would totally buy them if they were on the Sephora site. I am still hoping Elope or Smash would make their way to Sephora because I would grab those in a heart beat!

  23. Alllison says:

    Definitely Wink and nudge. Caress could be a cool light blue.

    Damn – I have a lot of nail polish I want.

  24. la-uh says:

    I would buy those in a second if they came to the US! They are so gorgeous.

  25. Elizabeth says:

    Absolutely. I would buy these and about 90% of their full nail varnish line if they were available in the US. These ultra-light, slightly muted pastels are exactly what I’m craving right now: they just feel so January to me. Clean and fresh, like the new year. As it stands, Jan is next in line on my nails once I can get over my current shimmery blue.

  26. amy says:

    These pastel shades are so cute! Not only do they need to stock them in the US but in Canada as well.

  27. Emily says:

    I’d definitely buy these if they came to Sephora!

  28. laquermanic says:

    I love these; I have a particular love for pastels, have been frankening them forever. And ever since I gave away my milf (I must have been out of my mind; I also gave away my muse …) and found out they were out of stock … well, let’s just say frankening milf is not gonna happen.

  29. Kristen says:

    Definitely would purchase Caress. Sephora, show us some love and bring these to your stores!

  30. Spicy says:

    Two words: Hell Yes. Those polishes look GORGEOUS. Want!

  31. Chloe says:

    YES!! I want nudge and caress!

  32. sandi says:

    they are beautiful colors. I am unfamiliar with the brand. What is the average cost?

  33. Megan says:

    Even though there are tons of pastels coming out this year, I would consider buying these if we could get them in the US. The main reason being Illamasqua’s formula. It’d be nice if they’d make Hectic and Smash available, too. Pretty Please!?!?!?!?! LOL!

  34. Mich says:

    These look very promising!

  35. Arrianne says:

    Hell yes I would!! Please do it Illamasqua! These look gorgeous.

  36. Nicole says:

    OMG Yes! Love them!

  37. Anne says:

    I would at least get one. I want them all though. It will be a hard desion.

  38. Debbie says:

    Yes, except Blow.

  39. Christina says:

    Gorgeous colors, but I really didn’t like Milf’s formula, too thick for my taste, so I’m afraid these are a no-go for me…

  40. Chris says:

    HELL to the YES!

  41. kim says:

    I would buy Wink on the spot if it really has that ever so subtle gray tone that shows in the pic. Muse is the only teal polish besides China Glaze Atlantis (?–also gorgeous) that I can wear on my fingernails after summer without looking like I have Deadwoman’s Hands. Count me in! and thanks for your wonderful website. All the colors kept me from going insane in the Fall. I enjoy reading your magazine pieces too.

  42. Mo says:

    Count me IN for Wink, Nudge and Caress!

  43. Trilby says:

    The green is nice but I’m so desperate for a pale blue-grey. It’s exactly what I’ve been looking for! I’ll go crazy if Sephora doesn’t stock these colors.

  44. rmcandlelight says:

    Yes, I would consider buying them to add to my Illamasqua collection. Love their formula. I hope you can get sephora to have hectic and some others to come to the US as well!

  45. maria says:


  46. Colette says:

    I would buy the yellow in a heartbeat!

  47. All Lacquered Up says:

    Keep the feedback coming everyone. I’ve shown your comments to Illamasqua and hopefully with enough customer support, the polishes will come to Sephora!!

  48. Caitlin says:

    Definitely! Discovered the brand because of your site, by the way. Love it! My favorite color they make is Jan – and these look similar in nature.

  49. Kinchen says:

    I would like to see all the colors at Sephora. I love the formula.

  50. kuzatab says:

    Yes, please – I MUST have that blue!!!

  51. Jingin says:

    Absolutely! I’d need ALL of them! :)

  52. Kristina says:

    I would definitely check out and probably buy the lavender and light green ones, and maybe the light blue. :)

  53. Gaynor says:

    Ooh! I’m going to Selfrisges tomorrow, I’ll (hopefully) be able to see how they look IRL :o)

  54. Crystal says:

    Oh definitely. I love the yellow and lavender.

  55. Katie says:

    Wow, I am going to be really depressed if I can’t get these in the US. They all look stunning!

    • Elise says:

      In my haste to make sure I get mine (even tho in the US), I forgot about the exchange rate and how weak the USD is. I paid $70.68 for all four. :EEK:

  56. Kasey says:

    Gorgeous! I, of course, want them all :) I really hope they go to Sephora because I have a gift card I received from Christmas….

  57. Ernestine says:

    Please bring them to USA!

  58. Amy says:

    I would buy every one of these polishes. I adore them!

  59. Diana says:

    Yes! I picked up Milf when I was in London and love it. I want the lavender and the baby blue

  60. Christina says:

    I would absolutely looove to buy all of them ! I wish Sephora would carry all of Illamasqua’ amazing nail varnishes.

  61. Tiffany says:

    i must have ALL of them!!!! Sephora needs to carry their whole entire line!

  62. JoAnn says:

    I LOVE that yellow! Please sephora- get these in your lineup!

  63. mayzie says:

    that blue is taking me back to middle school! i’d buy a couple of these for sure.

  64. lm says:

    I went to the Sephora site and was disappointed they weren’t already there. :-)

  65. Maria says:

    Dear Sephora,

    I need that yellow!
