Illamasqua Scandal Swatches

Today I want to share with you my first ever Illamasqua lipstick. I have heard so many great things about this brand and I really don't know why I never purchased from them before now. They are totally up my alley and I am so glad I finally purchased this lipstick to see what the hubub was all about.

First of all I really like the packaging. The lipstick tube is very sturdy. Second, I love this color. It is an all around always appropriate color. I think anyone could wear this anytime. This is a very nice somewhat coral dusty pink. Lately I have really fallen in love with corals. For lips, for cheeks, for eyes, I am totally infatuated with corals. One of the reasons I love coral is not just because it is a pretty color, it is a universally flattering color so I know I will always look good. How many more times can I say the word "coral?"

What do you think of Illamasqua? Do you own anything, lipstick, blush, eyeshadow? What would you suggest I try?
Do you have the same love for corals as I do or do you find them overrated?


  1. I've been head over heels with corals lately too. This is a lovely color!

    1. Yay! I love meeting another coral-fiend.

  2. That's SO pretty. I don't know if Illamasqua Sangers is still around but it's an amazing red! And Vapour is one of my favourite orange eyeshadows.

  3. I'm dying to try some of their stuff! Especially the eyeshadows and blushes. I haven't heard too much buzz about the lipsticks, but this one looks great!
