[Swatch] Illamasqua- Cameo



Today I have Illamasqua- Cameo, one of two recent Sephora-exclusive Illamasqua polishes (the other one is Noble, which I will swatch later.)



Cameo is a really lovely bright periwinkle cream.  I think it looks blue to most people, but it definitely leans purple.  It's quite a Spring-y color, but I love to wear happy colors in the Winter, sometimes!

Artificial light, two coats:

Window-filtered daylight:


Outside, shade:


Shade, different white balance:

Sun:


It looks much bluer in the sun!

Formula: Like all Illamasqua polishes I've tried, the formula was excellent.  It's on the thick side, and basically applied itself in two easy coats.  There was slight VNL when I used flash photography, but otherwise was perfectly opaque after two layers.


Stay tuned for Noble; I'll swatch that one soon because I can't wait to wear it!

  3. Oh, I'm a blue h00r, and I have a soft spot for periwinkles so this one is screaming my name! Sadly no Sephoras in my country, poop. But it looks gorgeous on you! :)

    1. Ohhhh, I hate when a nail polish is hard to get in your own country! There is probably a close dupey color to Cameo out there somewhere though... :)

    2. ok, super late but I came back to tell you I found Catrice It's all I can Blue on a local store and it looks really close to Cameo, success!! \o/ I wouldn't call them dupes, but they're certainly close to kill my lemming, mhuahaha :)
