This British born and bred brand has in a few short years since it’s launch achieved iconic status. Illamasqua is known for its avant-garde creative approach to beauty. Now cult beauty brand Illamasqua go from strength to strength and are opening two new counters this Autumn as a reflection of their continued UK success. I for one, am incredibly excited about their expansion, particularly as they withdrew from the US market. Their continued expansion in the UK reassures the creative world that they are here to stay.

On Monday 26th September 2016, Illamasqua have opened a new counters in Essex, with another to follow in October in Glasgow. Lakeside shopping centre (my former local) is the home of the Essex counter, with Debenhams in Silverburn being the Glasgow opening. There is the added bonus of extended shopping hours, even on Sunday (Silverburn only).

I wish the new counters all the best and hope to see more across England, Scotland and Wales.
