Having heard some great things about Illamsaqua recently, I decided I would bite the bullet and purchase one of their lipsticks.
They are around the same price as Mac, and have a varied amount of shades. I paid £20 for mine from Very, this particular one is in the shade Starkers.
Do I love it?
Well, I love the shade, it’s very hydrating and it smells lovely. In fairness I love pretty much any type of nude lipstick, I do prefer Matte though and this is satin.
The website states that it’s long lasting. I suppose that’s half true. If I compare it to the likes of Mac, I would say that yes it lasts a couple of hours if you are not eating or drinking. However I have worn this on some nights out and I did find myself reapplying quite often.
Would I buy it again?
I really do love the shade, and it makes my lips look lovely and plump! My only problem is how long it lasts for.
For around £20 I could buy 3/4 Revlon lipsticks or 3 Sleek liquid matte me lipsticks which I know last ages and I know I would be happy all round.
So no, I don’t think I will be buying them again. Totally prepared to try out other bits from their range though, I’m not totally writing them off. Just this particular make of lippy!
