Illamasqua Glamore Nude

I thought I had a box of chocolates when I saw this little box on my desk this morning.

It wasn't but my disappointment subsided when I saw it was something even better...a box of new nude lipsticks from Illamasqua.

The iconic nude lip we think was born from looking at images of the original 90's supermodels. Think Cindy, Christy, Naomi and Linda and also a favourite look of Nicola's.

From July 10th (online) and July 31st (in store) Illamasqua are launching this range of seven nude lipsticks. Each lipstick is £18.50.
 The seven lipsticks are broken down into three categories of nude..nude coral, rosy and earthy rose.
 The shades have something for every skin tone as the tones are a mixture of warm and cool nudes.

We had a look at four of the shades available.

From L-R Tease, Naked, Starkers, Rosepout
The colours are an opaque finish with a rich pigment. Moisturising and rich but without too much shine. They have a slight satin finish but no shimmer/glitter whatsoever. I would suggest using a lip liner with these shades to ensure you have a neater defined edge. Make sure your lip liner blends though, nothing worse than a dark lipliner and a nude lipstick!

Illamasqua head of training Daniel Busutti recommends that the best way to find your perfect nude tone is to match your lipstick to your natural nail bed colour. What a great tip!
These nudes will see you through summer into autumn for a natural day look or team it up with an intense smoky eye for the evening.
