Product Review: Illamasqua Lipstick in 'Over'

Illamasqua Lipstick 3

   You may have seen me tweeting about my recent Illamasqua purchase at @JlouiseArtist. I was so excited to receive my goodies that I felt I needed to embark on a full scale Twitter marathon updating you on the progress of my order.

   So here is my final outcome. For the next few days I'll be producing product reviews of the items I bought from Illamasqua, starting with their lipstick.

   First of all, I really love Illamasqua's use of packaging. The sleek black materials really give the brand a super-luxe feel. Great for quality assurance.

   I bought this lipstick in the shade 'Over', however it does come in thirty-one other shades. This is advertised as a "bright coral pink, with a matt finish". After applying a transparent lip balm, I swiped the lipstick on and it appeared true to its description, apart from the matt finish. I don't know if the lip balm made it slightly more shiny (that shouldn't really happen), but it definitely wasn't matt.

   I wasn't really bothered by this, as the high level of pigmentation made my mind up about this product.

   Illamasqua are known for their extrovert advertising campaigns, with costume-like looks created using highly pigmented makeup. Their lipstick range does not fail this, as shown in the photos below - my lips are a clear bright coral.

   Another thing I love about this lipstick is that Illamasqua don't skimp. They offer a huge stick of product compared to other makeup ranges I've tried, which gives you great value for money, considering you're paying £16.50.

   In terms of staying power, I wore the lipstick for four hours before I needed reapplication. During this time, I was drinking a lot of tea, so it was bound to wear off - but it didn't!

   All in all, a great product that I am very impressed with.

£16.50 for 4g
