Illamasqua Illumine Oil in Volt

"Create a sultry shimmer with an after-dark edge. Smooth Illumine Oil over skin for a light-reflecting finish that makes every movement a drama. Infused with pearlised particles and passionflower seed oil, this luxurious dry body oil is quickly absorbed and leaves skin illuminated. Bask in a radiance of your own making and demand to be worshipped."



I'm a porcelain skinned girl who keeps out of the sun and how often have I bemoaned the fact that I can't wear lovely shimmery/glittery body oils and sprays as more often than not, they come in golden / brown hues which look an orange, streaky mess on my alabaster skin.

It was with great glee I picked up Illamasqua's Illumine Oil in Volt - it is packed full of iridescent, shimmery cool tones in violet, lavender, pink, silver and sparkling white. It adds luminosity and a dewy shimmery finish to your skin. Perfect for pale and proud beauties to show off your porcelain tones for that Dita Von Teese look!

The illumine oil was part of the body electrics collection, as displayed on the bottle and is  designed to be used  on the décolletage area  . For £25 you get 100ml, you might not think this is much but a little of this goes a long way.


The illumine oil is a dry oil, which smells divine, very tropically with strong coconut notes. It last for a few minutes on the skin before its not really noticeable anymore. Volt is an iridescent blue, purple, pink and white sparkle mixture suspended in oil, this of course means that it settles easily, but a quick shake solves this. This stuff is pretty pigmented, a few dabs on the finger tips is enough to cover the collar area, so it should realistically last ages! I wouldn't wear this every day, but if im going out its a nice addition. Ive also used this just along the front of my shins for a party an found it added a nice glow to the legs. 




This oil can be built up to produce a prominent sparkle, but i prefer to use a little and blend it out to get a more distributed sparkle, the oil sinks in pretty fast and within a few minutes its safe to touch without being oily!

I love this product and will repurchase again and again for it's subtle shimmer and striking cool tones which look amazing on paler skin types.
