How gorgeous are these lipsticks?!
Until this year I was an Illamasqua lipstick virgin however after hearing about their newly formulated Glamore lipsticks I had to change this REAL QUICK!
Soaked - a vivid bright orange was first on my list.
Orange lipsticks have been my one battle, I can never wear them quite right but Soaked is perfect. The new formula means that the lipstick gllllliddddes on with maximum pigmentation. I was so impressed with Soaked I had to add more of these babies to my collection.
So welcome my two latest additions: Vampette and Buff.
Vampette is a new release from Illamasqua, described as a "deep berry, satin finish." Honestly guys, this is a WINNING colour, not only because of it's shade (a gorgeous berry which deepens in intensity when layered) but because of the texture, creamy but comfortable, what I look for in a non-matte lipstick.
Buff is part of Illamasqua's new Nude collection which consists of 7 new nude lipsticks designed for women of all skin tones.
On the website Illamasqua describe Buff as a "fudge brown, satin finish."
Not sure that I would call it fudge brown, I mean, on sight it looks terrifying to a brown skinned gal like myself; "a grey toned, cool nude brown" is the best description I could come up with, but once applied with a brown liner, MY WORDDDD GUYS, this is just LIFE itself!
It's an unconventional nude which reminds me a lot of the 90's nudes, either way I love it!!

All in all, I think Illamasqua have really been underselling these gems, the formula is amazing, comfortable, long wearing without sacrificing colour pay off.
Yes, they aren't the cheapest (£18.50) but these are an investment and believe me, you will NOT be dissappointe!
Would I recommend?
