BEAUTY: | Illamasqua, Sangers Lipstick | Beauty Review.

This Lipstick has become a favourite, I bought it a few months ago when Illamasqua (How do I even pronounce it?!) had a half price offer on. I received it soon after and was pretty unimpressed, I hated the texture of it, it felt drying and unpleasant on the lips. I asked around online and some of you lovely ladies told me that using lipbalm first really helped the situation. It did, and I fell in love with it. I wore it for the entire weekend of Download and it's perfect for a festival or a night out. The colour lasts for absolutely ages, all day and night, no matter how much you eat or drink. It barely rubs off on to the cup but if you do rub your mouth with your sleeve your sleeve will be stained for a few washes, I found this out one night haha.
The lipstick has a really rich pigment and is a really nice deep red. Perfect for a night or festivals, a bit too red for every day wear though.
Aside from the waxy feel I love this lipstick and it has the best staying power I've ever found in a lipstick!

Are you a fan of Illamasqua? Have you got any lipstick recommendations?

  1. A lot of lipsticks often perform better with lipbalm under, unless the lipstick is 'moisturizing'.

    I had a chuckle at 'Make up for your alter ego' on the box, and that's a really lovely deep red!
