I’m just going to come right out and say it. Illamasqua lippies are a tad on the drying side. Mainly because they’re so matte, but you need very well conditioned lips to wear them well. The new Illamasque Glamore Lipsticks however, have a satin finish and therefore more oil and less tendency to be drying. This is a brand new formula for Illamasqua and a challenge (according to Alex Box) in trying to get a slip finish without losing pigment intensity.
As you can see, it’s a win for Illamasqua formulators because they’re still the power strength pigments that we are used to from this brand. So, the shade line up is: Soaked, Glissade and Luster. The only way to wear these is with confidence – they’re mega-impact, dramatic and personally, I think, benefit from having a slight sheen to them. Much prettier than matte.
Illamasque Glamore Lipstick will be £16.50 when they launch on 27th February.
