#30in30 Illamasqua Minx

I’ve had this lipstick for SO long.. maybe more than a year and I haven’t used it yet.. this falls  under the #bloggerproblems category. I can’t possible use a lipstick until I’ve taken a photo of it, can I??? I’m going to have to start bending that rule soon or I’ll never use anything!! Now in fairness I probably wouldn’t have liked this as much a few days ago as I do now so waiting worked out pretty well in this case as it definitely works better with my new, darker hair but still..

I haven’t tried much from Illamasqua full stop but I think this might be the FIRST of their lipsticks. They are SO creamy and opaque I can already tell you that it definitely wont be my last! Minx is one of those very ‘on trend’ Kylie Jenner colours that I love.. very similar to Brave from MAC, that warm nude that’s so easy to wear and doesn’t make you look like death. Wear time is also really nice, the shine wears off quickly but a satin finish is left behind that lasts for hours.. not what I was expecting from such a comfortable, balmy texture. I can see why the brand has such loyal followers! I have another Illamasqua colour to show you this month (that agian I’ve had for AGES unused) so I’ll be interested to see if that’s as good. At £19.50 they’re pricier than I would usually buy but as an occasional treat, for a unique shade I think I’d try another!

    This color is so pretty, also if you like this color you would like Nars – Dolce Vita

    Oh, that is adorable on you, especially with your lovely new hair and the top you’re wearing.

    Ouch at the price though!

    It looks lovely. If I didn’t have Brave and Twig and Amorous I’d consider it haha

    There is something very satisfying about how smooth the lip swatch looks!! It’s like lip porn 😛
