Before Jess left for her new job in NYC we went makeup shopping at the Sephora in Georgetown to upgrade her beauty routine for her new life in the big apple. Of course I couldn’t leave Sephora empty handed and I knew that the Georgetown Sephora is one of the few that carries Illamasqua beauty products. I’ve been wanting to buy at least one product from their line just to see what all the hype is about so I decided to go with a lipstick.
I picked up Illamasqua lipstick in Drench, a berry matte red or at least that’s how it is described online. I like to think that it’s in the same vein as a great strawberry pink and I’m quite smitten with it. I’m always on the quest for the perfect lipstick and I haven’t really figured out what all that would encompass. Right now what I’m loving about Drench is that the color glides on smoothly but has a satin finish but still appears almost like a stain on the lips. The color builds up and the stain lasts and evenly disappears when you eat. It has been my summer beauty bag staple for the past month. Plus I love the cheeky names for their lipsticks (I totally tried to get Jessica to buy Climax, it was gorgeous on her).
Have any of you picked up an Illamasqua products yet? What do you think?
