Illamasqua Glamore Collection

For the lady who craves the Hollywood Glamour and can’t resist a bit of sparkle

Illamasqua Glissade Pink Lipstick
Illamasqua Soaked Red Lipstick
Illamasqua Varnish in Trilliant
Illamasqua Varnish in Marquise

In my eyes, Illamasqua are on a bit of a winning streak. Collection after collection for the past few years have been fantastic and they always seem to be doing something unique to every other high-end make up brand. Their lipsticks are something that I truly adore and I keep them stored away neatly next to my Mac collection, Limecrime, YSL and Clarins, for those days when I want something super pigmented. They are such brilliant quality, will last for hours if you’re not eating or drinking and come in a few different finishes now. The majority of lipsticks are a matte finish which I personally love, yet these two from the new collection have a more satin finish and just add that extra boost of shine and texture. So so beautiful and Glissade especially is going to be a favourite for the summer.

Then we have the varnishes, which again are usually always so unique – you must remember the egg shell shades to come out around 6 months ago? Well, these two are a Hollywood glam update and Trilliant especially, in the silvery, bronze tones have not left my nails for around 2 weeks. I adore textured varnish, as it allows your nails to get chipped without being overly noticeable and for that it means they are not as high maintenance as a glossy finish varnish. But the colour is so subtle yet super sexy and I love the way it catches the light!

If you’re looking for one or two things to buy from this collection, I would definitely recommend Glissade and Trilliant most highly, yet if you’re more a red kinda gal, Marquise on your nails and Soaked on your lips would be the perfect combination.
