Over the years, I’ve always heard such great things about Illamasqua as a brand, and so many of my blogger friends say it’s the one brand they wish was more readily available in Ireland. However, until today, I had never tried anything from the brand so naturally, was excited to try it out.
The lipstick was very dry, so dry it was hard to apply or blend, and ended up going on in blotches as opposed to blending evenly. I had to layer this several times to get a full coverage and the bullet itself looks as though there are lumps in it which I’m sure shouldn’t be there. So maybe it was a bad batch that made it to the shelf.
I also had high hopes for the shade which I was thought would be a gorgeous bright orange, but instead what I got was something quite dull and a little non-descript. Certainly not the bright orange that I usually love to wear.
