It’s official, I need to rename this blog lipfixx beauty. Apologies for the umpteenth lip related post – there will be more to come if you caught my Valentine’s Day haul. sozaboutthat.
First up is a lipstick I’ve been lusting after for a short while thanks to Victoria from inthefrow who recommended it for pink haired ladies. I popped into the Illamasqua boutique in Leeds’ Victoria Quarter for the first time a few weeks back and the customer service was brilliant. The ladies in the store were so nice and chatty but not in a pushy way. I love just chatting beauty with people without feeling pressured into buying stuff. There was an offer on for a lipstick + gloss combo for £25 and as the lipsticks are £16.50 each, it made sense.
Fable is a lovely, muted baby pink shade that has hints of coral, perhaps a tad salmon. It’s a weird one to explain colour wise but I absolutely love it with my pink hair. The formula is very matte, with a chalky finish which I struggled with a little at first but if I apply a bit of lip balm beforehand it gives a much smoother, more comfortable application. I’d also recommend a good scrub of the ‘ol lips beforehand too. Ain’t nobody got time for crispy lips.
I wore this shade on a recent night out and absolutely loved it – it lasted all evening. A great colour if you’re fancying a smokey eye and adding some lashes, it kind of tones everything down and looks really pretty.
Have you tried any matte lipsticks from Illamasqua?
