Illamasqua Lipstick

Intensely highly pigmented formula's in matt or glossy finishes which have remarkable staying power.

First up - Underworld

Iridescent blueberry violet colour with a shimmer finish.

A lovely colour that shimmers in the light. It is a sheer pink with a lavender duochrome.
I found that this lipstick will cling to any dry areas of skin on the lips and can also cause some drying.

Unfortunately at the moment illamasqua have a waiting list on this product, so keep looking at their site if you are interested in purchasing this lipstick.


Classic cherry red with a matt finish.

A true red and not too dark, quite wearable if you can pull off the red lip. Be careful of some smudging that can occur around the lips.

A wonderful colour that I found lasts for 4 hours without touching up. I used concealer on the outside of the lip to stop the colour bleeding. It doesn't wear well with a balm or primer underneath it, it just encourages the lipstick to slide off.

Thanks for reading,
