Illamasqua Lipsticks Review

Now this review is all about the Illamasqua Matte Lipsticks. Let me recap how I got them before I get into things… I wont to college to become a professional make up artist. The first course that I went on I found to be a huge waste of time, it cost a lot of money and I felt like I was learning nothing. I honestly learnt more watching Pixiwoo videos on YouTube!

So, I paid all this money out for my course and then I had to give them even more to buy my professional makeup kit. I said I would rather bring my own things that I am used to having but they wanted the whole class to have the same. It was understandable so I grin and bared it and bought the kit. Which has to be the biggest waste of money ever. It was an Illamasqua kit.

I am in no way complaining about the products, because they were great quality, the thing that got me angry was the amount we got. For the money that we had paid I expected there to be a full kit, there wasn’t even concealers or mascaras inside it. It was a huge disappointment and I kind of disregarded the products I got in the kit ever since.

Within the kit I got 2 Illamasqua Lipsticks. One was matte in texture and the other was satin.

The matte Illamasqua Lipstick was called Maneater. This is a really bright vivid fire engine red colour. The colour of this I thought was absolutely brilliant. If you want a really red red, this is a perfect shade. It is very similar in colour to Ruby Woo by MAC. But I have to say that this is an ultra-matte lipstick. It is really dry to apply to the lips. Whereas Ruby Woo goes on quite liquid and then sets matte. But this Illamasqua lipstick I find to be quite uncomfortable on the lips. It in no way glides on, it can be quite rough and then when it dries in even more on the lips it can be painful, especially for a person like me that suffers with chapped lips.

The other shade I got was Tease which is a satin texture. This does glide on the lips better but for the colour on me looked like death. You know when you see a dead body in a film and they have white/purplish lips, that is how this looked on me. I have naturally very tanned skin and extremely light nudes like this don’t look good at all. This on somebody else may be a beautiful shade, but on me. HELL NO.

Obviously under different circumstances where I get to choose my own I may have loved these but based on these two shades and textures they’re not a winner. As normal on all of my blog posts I will link below to all of the products mentioned…
