These come in the trademark Illamasqua packaging..remember my previous pink lipstick Immodest (see HERE). Immodest had a very dry matte texture..this formulation is quite different.
Super pigmented..you get color in one swipe..and which stays on and on..and the tint is quite strong too..its not moisturising types but quite hydrating..you don’t feel your lips are dry and neither does it feel heavy..glides on smooth as well unlike matte lipsticks..
These appear a little glossy for an hour or so..and then settle for a satin finish.
I am majorly impressed by the pigmentation and staying power..they have stayed on me for 6-7 hours and the tint survived much longer..even after full meals, drinks, etc..
Glissade is described as a Bold Pink..its a medium mauve fuchsia..kinda mix..difficult to describe this shade actually..but it looks soo good ! I am in love with this shade ! My current favorite..it would work well on all skin tones..coz its not totally fuchsia kinds..and makes the face brighter immediately..a super pretty pink !
Soaked is described as a vibrant orange..its a medium orange with red undertones..when used as a tint, it comes up as a pretty orangey red..again not the bright loud orange types..but very wearable kinds (though it looks super bright..it looks better in person..and much nicer as a tint)
And here are both on moi..
1. Super pigmented.
2. Long Staying.
3. Satin non drying finish.
4. Lovely colors..both are very wearable..Glissade is a must have !
5. Feel light on lips.
2. Availability is an issue..need to order online.
Overall, Illamasqua Glamore Lipsticks are a must have..these are amazing formulation wise..and color wise too..especially Glissade..highly recommended !!
Value for money: 3.75/5
Overall Rating: 3.75/5
