I’ve got a review for you today on an amazing lipstick. I have been lusting after it for a considerable amount of time. The only person who knew this? M. What did she buy me for my birthday? THIS! < 3
Illamasqua are a brand that I really like. I don’t own many of their products but I do have a very big wishlist of their products and have heard great things. A colleague has recently been on the week long make up course that they offer and got a whole load of products that look amazing!
I’ve had my eye on their primers and foundations for a while but let’s not forget the super amazing eye colours they offer as well as the infamous eye liners. I’ll surely be buying more from them soon!
This particular lipstick is called Maneater.
Not only is it quite an eye catching name but its an absolutely stunning colour. It’s from their original lipstick range and is a crazy intense, long lasting creamy lipstick with a matte finish.
I love the black packaging, its sleek and simple yet perfectly individual to the brand. I love the stamp at the top with their symbol, its so cute and instantly recognisable.
The photo below shows the lipstick colour without a flash, and below that with a flash:
Illamasqua call the lipstick a ‘classic cherry red with a matte finish’. It’s the perfect classic red, its creamy, doesn’t feather out of lip lines and more importantly; doesn’t dry my lips out.
Just look at how beautiful and flattering this red colour is:
Excuse my lip pictures, they’re definitely not my best feature!
Here’s the lip colour on, in all its creamy cherry red glory:
Admittedly it needs lip liner for a better and cleaner line, but it so pretty!
I haven’t tested the longevity of the lipstick yet as i haven’t been anywhere special to wear such a gorgeous colour but i will be wearing it out at my first opportunity.
Have you tried a lipstick from Illamasqua? Do you love a classic cherry red?
