Illamasqua Rare

To celebrate the beginning of summer, I decided to go bright.  Neon, eye searing, blinding bright.  Of course I had to bring out the neon yellow.

As we all know, neon yellows tend to be extremely sheer and either require a ridiculous number of coats, or a couple of layers of white underneath.  Rare was different.  I used 4 coats, but probably could have gotten away with three.  It started off a bit streaky, but I was fine with it knowing what I could have been getting into with a yellow, and a neon yellow at that.  Needless to say, this started off my summer perfectly.


  1. Wow! Your pictures are to die for! I've never seen anyone capture a neon quite this well. I love this color, I haven't gotten it yet, but it is high on my lemming list.
