Illamasqua Review #3 Lipstick

Illamasqua Lipstick in Corrupt, £15.50 for 4g

 I really love lipsticks, and I really love Illamasqua, so I thought it time I purchased an Illamasqua lipstick! It was on the pricier end of the scale, being £2 more expensive than the renouned lipsticks by M.A.C., but you get 4g of product which is a gram more than M.A.C...

 I was drawn to this colour because it was a matte finish and it stood out to me from the swatches on the website. I'm not the girliest of girls, but I do LOVE the colour pink, and to me this shade, 'Corrupt', is the perfect striking, barbie pink. I have plans to try 'Resist' and 'Salacious' ASAP!

If I'm honest, it's a more fluro and deeper pink than I expected it to be, in my head it was a bright candy pink, but this is the problem with ordering online sometimes. I'm not disappointed though, the finish is lovely, and I really can't complain as it makes a nice addition to my lipstick collection! I'll be needing to buy myself a bright pink lipliner though, asap!- Why don't I already have one!!
This would look darling on all skin tones, worn with pink blush, simple & sparkly eyes and a defined brow. It also looks lovely with a gloss on top for an all out, party lip.

Do you have any Illamasqua lipsticks? What do you think of this shade?


  1. This looks like a gorgeous shade! It looks lovely on you xxx

  2. wow that lipstick is awesome, such a nice pink!
    and of course looks great on you :)

  3. i love love love this shade. i guess i need to get that one!

  4. I'm off to buy this immediately, this is exactly the sort of shade I've been looking for for ages, for some reason I never think of going to Illamasqua but I definitely will now!


  5. i loveee the shade! i don't have any illamasqua, unfortunately, but at the rate i go through lipstick my bank balance would be very unhappy!


  6. Such a pretty shade, i only own illamasqua's wanton lipstick but i love it! I find they have really good lasting power.

  7. PRETTY COLOUR. Matte lipsticks look shit on me because I have dry lips :( I got this lovely nude YSL one a few weeks ago but it just makes me look stupid. Ah well. This colour suits you so well!

  8. I have yet to try their lipsticks. I think Corrupt is a lovely shade on you.:D

  10. Very jealous of your makeup collection! I'd love to be able to pull off a bright lipstick like this, to be fair I've never really tried though!

    I've lived in a pub for 10 years, I'm not a massive fan really but it has it's perks. Is it good to be back in a proper house? Love your blog by the way, it's already one of my favourites! XO
