My Illamasqua Lipstick Collection

illamasqua lipsticks

*Lipstick Collection Alert*

Flipping heck I didn't realise how many lipsticks in my makeup drawer, its getting so much makeup now that I can barely even shut the drawer now. I have always been such a lipstick fan that its the most thing I have that is makeup related and I think I have over 50 now and I could honestly say I don't have a favorite as I have so many to say which is my favorite.

Illamasqua are one of my favorite makeup brands as they just stand out for me as being a bit Gothic and having shades that are out of the box and they aren't afraid to be different and I just love that and its the reason why I keep buying more and more from the brand.

From top to bottom the lipsticks are as follows -

Immodest is a vivid pink in a matte finish which is simply stunning applied. The lipstick has great staying power and lasts a good few hours without needing reapplied. Even though this is a matte lipstick I did not find it drying at all and was smooth to apply.

Pinkie is a cool pink in a satin finish and is very smooth so its a dream to apply. This shade is very drastic but I do love it and can't wait to wear it in the Spring and Summer months. This lipstick doesn't last as long as a matte but still lasts a while with amazing pigmentation.

Naked is a nude shade in a satin finish. This is the most nude lipstick I have in my lipstick collection as I usually wear bright lipstick but this is perfect for natural makeup days. This lipstick is very smooth like pinkie and has good staying power.

Atomic is a fuchsia violet shade in a matte finish. This lipstick is the perfect matte and is amazing with the retro look and is among my favorite retro matte lipsticks. This lipstick is a bit dry to apply but once applied it looks amazing and I would suggest using lip balm but saying that it has stunning staying power with a gorgeous shade.

Cherub is a warm coral shade in a satin finish. This lipstick is the one I usually choose when I want a more natural makeup look as it looks stunning and brightens up my look instantly. This lipstick is smooth to apply and looks fabulous for a couple hours before needing reapplying.

Vampette is a deep berry shade in a satin finish. I must admit this was my number one lipstick of 2014! such a beautiful shade that looks perfect with any look. This lipstick is smooth and lasts for a good few hours before a reapplication is needed.

Even though these lipsticks are on the expensive side at £18.50 each, I think the quality of the lipsticks speaks for themselves as they have one the best pigmentation I have seen in a lipstick and have many to choose from on their website I just want to buy more.

With my Illamasqua lipsticks I am more confident in an instant as I know the shades are beautiful and they are long lasting so I don't have the worry of them fading in a hurry. I really love my collection and would not change any of them as I am pleased with the selection I have chosen. After writing this post I am more tempted to add more Illamasqua lipsticks to my collection woops!!

    This is the first time I have heard of the brand. I adore these shades, so so pretty! x


  2. Cherub looks gorgeous! Illamasqua lippies are definitely worth the investment. I find them more moisturising than MACs.

    Cherub is my favourite I really love pinks at the moment it makes a change from the reds and nudes plastered everywhere, I definitely want to invest asap xxx

    I love how many different shades Illamasqua do! I have ESP and Kontrol but they're very matte and hard to wear. I need to try some of these gorgeous colours, especially Immodest and Cherub! x

  5. Have never used this brand before but I LOVE that atomic shade! x

  6. I really need to try more of Illamasqua this year. And I do think I am sold on Naked!
