Antipodean Beauties: My Favourite Lipstick

Hi all, I've joined a blog linky party called Antipodean Beauty. Created by Omega this is a makeup challenge group for Aussies and Kiwis where we post makeup looks depending on what that week's theme is. Even though it's a weekly link party, I'll probably not be able to manage every week but will join in whenever I can. Anyway, enough chit chat. This week's theme is... My Favourite Lipstick!

Long time readers of my blog will know how much I adore MAC Impassioned, it is my favourite lipstick. However since I've blogged about it a billion times before (just do a search for Impassioned using the search box on the right, you'll see how many posts come up!) today I will be showing you my second favourite lipstick which truth be told I wear way more than Impassioned.


It is Corrupt by Illamasqua, and it's the most flattering shade of warm candy pink. All Illamasqua lipsticks are extremely matte, and this is no exception, so a lipbalm is essential. I actually didn't wear lip balm in the pic below (was feeling lazy) and you can see how dry it looks on the lips... but never mind that, with a colour this pretty surely you can forgive its one sin?

I normally wear this lippy with a sleek black eyeliner and a warm pink blush to match.


So now if you'd like to see what the other members' favourite lipsticks are just check out the links below.

    1. You know Illamasqua box has been on my wishlist for a while now but I'm yet to try it! You just reminded me, next trip to the Illamasqua counter that's what I'm getting! :)

  4. I have this in my collection, though it's been fairly unloved recently as there have been so many awesome drugstore lip products that have come out. Will have to fish it out and start using it again!

    1. Hehe I was THAT close to picking Impassioned but then decided that it gets far too much love from me already, so today the focus was on my second favourite. :)

    1. For a long time I only ever wore pale lippies, but the last 3 years or so I've converted to strong lip colours and never looked back :)

  8. So much pretty. I love the Illamasqua matte lippies, even if they are like all other mattes in the high maintenance category! J'adore, you look so glam!! x

    1. Illamasqua mattes are great, and yes they definitely are high maintenance but on the plus side they do stay on the lips for hours! And thank you! xx

  11. I love looking at others wearing candy pink shades because I can't seem to carry that colour well and I think Illamasqua's lipsticks are just AMAZING! You look gorgeous in that colour Lilit!
