In the recent ASOS sale I went a bit Illamasqua crazy and found myself accidentally adding 4 lipsticks to my basket, merrily entering in my payment details and doing a little happy dance as the confirmation email landed in my inbox. But the most important thing to remember is that it was an accident, *crosses fingers* honest! I've had Fable lipstick for a little while and now I have a lovely little Illamasqua lipstick collection that I love very much.
Fable, Liar, Liv, Obey & Over.Fable is described as a bright rose pink & it was my first Illamasqua lipstick. It's a matte finish which I do sometimes find difficult to wear when my lips aren't in the best condition but I also think it's my favourite lipstick. The colour is so beautiful and it really brightens up my complexion which is lovely. It's definitely one of those reliable lipsticks that will go with so many different looks and I reach for it a lot.
Liar is a beautiful petal pink colour and is the only shimmer finish I have from Illamasqua. I find this formula a lot easier to wear and don't have to worry too much about prepping my lips with a good lip balm before applying. I do love a bit of shimmer every now & again and I've been enjoying wearing this with a little silver liner, lots and lots of mascara & a pinky coloured cream blush.
Liv in another matte shade and is described as a soft lavender pink. On my lips this is similar to liar only completely matte and a little brighter. I've been wearing this in a similar way to liar with the addition of a pretty pink gloss over the top to tone the colour down ever so slightly & make it more wearable on my warm skin tone.
Fable, Liar, Liv, Obey & Over.Obey is exactly how it's described on the website, a bright peachy pink. Again it's a matte finish and this is one I'm finding quite difficult to wear at the moment because of my pink hair. I can just about get away with it paired with a light pink gloss but this is one I'm looking forward to wearing with a pretty coral cheek, especially in the spring time! Nothing like planning ahead, eh?!
Lastly I have Over which is a bright coral pink and it really is a beautiful colour. This is one I definitely can't wear with my pink hair, it just doesn't work, so I've been admiring it in the tube instead. I wish I had bought this during the summer because I would have got a lot of wear out of it, but I plan to keep it safe in my lipstick drawer until next spring/summer, unless of course my pink hair has disappeared before then!
Fable, Liar, Liv, Obey & Over.These will be popping up in some face of the day posts very soon, I've had the urge to start experimenting a little more with my make up again as well as experimenting with fashion; I need an overhaul of my look I think!
Have you ever tried Illamasqua lipsticks, what's your favourite shade & what do you think of them? Let me know if you have any suggestions for what my next shade should be!
