Ilia Age of Consent. First Impression

October 14, 2015


My dear lovelies, how are you all today? As you may have seen on my Instagram, I was gifted a gorgeous, gorgeous product from the new Ilia Fall 2015 Collection. Thanks again babe! ;) <3 I've received their Silken Shadow Stick in the shade Age of Consent. Interesting name, right? :) I love the look of all shades they came up with, but this brown shade is definitely my favourite. It's an ash-brown shade with small golden-brown shimmer and bigger silver particles, glitter I'd say. Nothing matte about it. I absolutely adore it.
It's super beautiful, flattering, enough neutral even for my natural makeup looks, gives a great shine metallic look to them lids and it's just so darn easy to use. I swipe it on and blend with Bdellium Tools 785 brush. Big thanks to Ashley aka The Green Bunny for talking so highly about it, it really is that awesome as she says it is! And yes, I'm usually that lazy and I only use this product. And a bit of highlighter in the inner corners of my eyes and on brow bone. Done. I am thinking of pairing it with orange/apricot colour or darker brown eye shadow in my crease, I think it would look nice. One thing I have to say about it is that sometimes when I apply it there are some lumps, but nothing a bit of blending won't solve.
Other thing is, that it creases. It's creamy so a little creasing is to be expected, but on me it creases like crazy. I know it looks like that on the pictures bellow but my wrinkly eyelids are to be blamed here and not the product. I get "real" creases in about an hour or so. But please keep in mind that my eyelids are oily and I'm still looking for a great eye shadow primer. I've tried a few different techniques when applying this Ilia shadow stick, I hope I'll think of something else that will help. If you have any recommendations, please let me know. :)
Have you tried anything from the new Ilia Collection? I'd also love to try the foundation, looks beautiful! 


Much love,

Jana xx

  1. Gorgeous colour on you Jana and I love the make up look you put together. Such a stunner. Oh, and I'm desperately looking for a good eye shadow primer too!! I can't wear any eye shadow because whenever I do it creases so much and so quickly =(( The only thing that has stayed on well is Gressa's Lumiere...doesn't crease nearly as much and the colour stays on well. Sooo, we need to let each other know if we stumble across a great primer! xx

  3. Dear Jana, it looks absolutely stunning! But I have the same problem with creamy eyeshadows: they crease no matter what I do. I'm trying 2 eyeshadow bases by The All Natural Face right now which I heard so many good things about but my cream eyeshadow still creases -.- ...I tried a lot of "alteranative" methods as well...I need to try the RMS Un-Powder before using such eyeshadows sometime soon because everything else did not work yet. So I can feel you x) . And it's a shame because there are so many beautiful cream eyeshadows out there. Lots of love <3 .

    1. Theresa, thank you so much, my darling!<3 Oh no, so sad to hear they don't work with you. Isn't it annoying when you read amazing reviews and then it doesn't work on you? :( You are the second person to mention the un-powder, maybe I would have to give a try too. Let me know if you find a product that works for you! :) xx
