I love a bit of lipstick. Some of you might have noticed. I also love a bit of Illamasqua, so I thought I’d show you my top three Illamasqua shades.
Step forward Box, Magnetism and Salacious:
Box is a classic blue red, Magnetism is a cool raspberry, and Salacious is a beautiful pink-red. Here’s a closer look:
Whilst I adore these colours, I’m not always a fan of the Illamasqua lipstick textures, to be honest. These three all have different textures, Box is a very dry texture that can drag on your lips somewhat, Salacious is extremely pigmented, much more so than the other two, but is a bit creamier than Box. I think Magnetism has by far the best formula of the three, it has a good slip, and a slight sheen, and is a bit less drying on the lips as a result.
Texture, and formula, issues aside, I do genuinely love these shades. Salacious was the first Illamasqua lipstick I ever bought and I love the colour, is it pink? Is it red? Well, depending on what you wear with it, it can appear either colour, that’s why I like it. Box is a classic red that no makeup bag should be without (just make sure you use plenty of lip balm first), and Magnetism is a flattering raspberry shade, that suits almost every skintone.
What’s your favourite Illamasqua lipstick?
