Illamasqua: Scandal & Welt Lipstick

As many of you may know by now, I adore Illamasqua.. I just think that they have some really great quality products to offer which I did write a post about here..

I talk about Illamasqua's blushes a lot.. But I never really mentioned their lipsticks..

So here's the two lipsticks I own..



In my opinion, Illamasqua lipsticks beat the MAC Matte Lipsticks in terms of staying power and dryness.. And I say Matte because all Illamasqua lipsticks are Matte.. The shades Illamasqua has to offer are just divine..



Scandal is just such an amaaazing shade! A great one for the summer

Welt is also lovely.. Not one I reach for a lot as it's a little bit too deep/dark colour for me.. But when I do wear it, I just dab a little bit on my lips and it gives a lovely magenta stain



Here's how it looks on the lips (a huge THANK YOU for my beautiful model & best friend xoxo)

Note: The face & the background have been edited but the lips remianed untouched so you could see the true colours of the lipstick


 Product

- Matte
- Amazing staying power
- Can be drying if lip balm is not applied beforehand
- Very pigmented
- Great colour selection


Who Will Like This?

- Anyone who loves Matte lipsticks
- Anyone who (like me) tends to eat up their lipstick

Who Won't Like This?

- People with very dry lips won't enjoy this
- If you want something glossy, don't come near these lipsticks


My Final Thoughts: These beat any high-end lipsticks I've tried in terms of pigmentation and staying power.. Can't wait for Illamasqua to come out with more shades!


Have you tried Illamasqua lipsticks? What's your favourite brand for lipstick?

Wow these lipsticks look beautiful! The shades are a little out of my comfort zone, but I def want to check out their other colors.

Also, your pictures are amazing! I love how you did the lip swatches =)

Scandal looks gorgeous!! I have Atomic and I really like it! And I agree with Vida, I was like 'wow so pretty!!' when I saw your swatches!

Danielle said...

Both colors are pretty- but if I had to pick one I'd choose Scandal. You're right, it looks great for summer! I have never tried an Illamasqua lipstick, but Brink has been on my list for awhile. Lovely modeling by your friend! ;)

Thank you =) Always have to?
I thinks it's much better to use your blush as eyeshadow when you can, then you don't have to pay so much for duplicates really =)

Ebru said...

I love your swatches! I think I would also go for Scandal even though both colors are gorgeous. Scandal just looks a bit more up my alley :) I have swatched Illamasqua lipsticks a few times at Sephora but don't own one yet, I should go and check out Scandal in person now that I saw your post :) I think my favorite brand for lipsticks is definitely MAC, I've been loving Dior Addict lipsticks too lately.
