Illamasqua Pinkie Lipstick Review

Illamasqua Pinkie Lipstck review
Hey Lovelies!
I have way to many lipsticks to count so I thought its about time I started to review them all for you! I have loads of beauty reviews in my blog directory for more of my lipstick collection, I have lost count of my lipsticks and always seem to buy more and can't stop as I just love them.
I discovered the Illamasqua makeup brand just over a year ago when I noticed how different in a good way the brand were and still are now. Illamasqua are a vibrant and very quirky brand with the most gorgeous makeup I have ever seen with its gothic designs I always seem to keep buying more from the brand as they are superb quality, just what you would expect from a premium brand.

Pinkie is a ultra cool pink shade in a satin finish and I must admit its not something I would of personally chose but I won it in a competition a few months back, saying that its grown on me over the past few months as  I think its the perfect summer light pink lipstick. Pinkie can be worn on its on but can be combined with a lip liner or use with a lip gloss, I personally use it with lip gloss as it gives this lipstick a lovely sparkly shine. I personally don't think lipstick is that long lasting compared to my matte Illamasqua lipsticks or my satin lipsticks from other brand unfortunately, but saying that its a beautiful lipstick.
 Illamasqua lipsticks are available on their website and retail at £19.50.

    What a gorgeous shade! It's kind of expensive, though. X

    Illamasqua are my one lipstick love. When I'm heading out for a big night out my friends and I tend to head to our local counter & get made over, then you can reclaim the £30 back against products so I've now started a great Illamasqua collection. I'd rarely spend so much on a lipstick on a normal shopping trip but for Illamasqua and a special occasion, I make an exception.
    Their lipsticks are just SO worth it :)
    This shade looks just lovely.
