Lipstick Challenge Day 3: Pink

Today's look for the lipstick challenge is using a lipstick from one of my favourite brands, Illamasqua.



The colour is called Corrupt and it's a super matte bright pink lipstick that lasts on the lips for ages.

Because it's very matte, it's best to moisturise the lips with some balm otherwise it will accentuate any dry flaky bits.

You can see how matte it is from this swatch

I took these photos in daylight but I used a soft flash in this pic below. It brought out the brightness of the pink better than in the next pic without a flash.



The pic below was taken without a flash standing in front of a window. The colour looks slightly less vibrant, but still stands out nicely.


FACE
Foundation: Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse in Nude
Concealer: Bourjois Healthy Mix in Light Radiance

Lipstick - Illamasqua Corrupt

After yesterday's blah look (IMO) with the nude lip, the brighter pink is more up my alley.

Have you used Illamasqua lipsticks before? What are your favourite lipsticks at the moment?

  19. Hi girls, thanks so much for your lovely comments. :)

    @Bethany - Oooh can't wait to see yur review of Illamasqua when you receive your package.

    @Haute Style - come on babe, are you serious? I s*ck at it and just go with whatever messy curls my GHD creates. But if i figure out a way of doing a tute on it I will... might need to enlist the husband to be the photographer or something.
