Illamasqua I'm the One Collection - preview
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh the old red lip, and Illamasqua combined. My favourite colour lippie. And my favouite OTT makeup brand. What could be a better mix?
Illamasqua are celebrating Valentines' Day this year with a collection called I'm The One. It's a mini collection. A collection-ette, if you will. If you're as obsessed with red as I, you'll love it. A new red lipgloss (Touch) and a new lipliner (Feisty) join the existing scarleh' nailpolish (Throb) and lippie (Maneater) and are available now from the Illamasqua site here. I also love that Illamasqua do "moving swatches" of their products, and show them on different skin tones. Fantastic idea!
Cheapest is the liner (€14), the lipgloss and nailvarnish will set you back €14.50 and the lippie will cost ya €16.50. Or buy 'em all together in one go for €50 (a saving of €9.50). I have Maneater and Throb already. I do so love red. It's not just for Valentines' Day ya know. And I don't much care that they're seen as a bit too outré for my current day-time desk job, I still wear red lips "loud and proud"! It makes a statement. Even if that statement is only I didn't have time to style my hair and my trousers are the same as the once I wore yesterday but hey, look, look, up here, I've got red lips!!
Illamasqua are also running a competition at the moment - if you send a red lipstick selfie to @Illamasqua on Twitter with hashtag #IMTHEONE between now and the 15th of February, you'll be entered in a free draw for an item from the collection. One of these days I'll do a swatch of every single red lippie I own. It'll be a long post :-)
