Illamasqua - Atomic

Hi Beauties!
I have decided to put a little series together about one of my favorite things, vintage lipsticks! I have a few to test out and I am sure there will be a few more to add to my collection in the not so distant future so keep an eye out there will be more to come!
For me lipstick is very important and gives me a massive confidence booster, its amazing at what a splash of colour can do! I currently own about 15 lipsticks.

Lipstick quotes I love!

“I said pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick, and pull yourself together.”― Marilyn Monroe

Illamasqua Lipsticks are simple yet beautiful with a chunky lipstick with vintage packaging. Illamasqua lipsticks just stick out from other brands as they have a vast amount of shades and finishes. Applying these lipsticks is a bit awkward but if you apply a lip balm on your lips before applying an Illamasqua  lipstick then it just glides on your lips with ease. The colour is very pigmented and only a little bit goes such a long way! The look of this lipstick is truly stunning on and gives you that edge you would look for in a lipstick. The only downfall for me regarding this lipstick is that if you have a hot drink or food then it does come off and leaves dry patches but it does not matter really as you can always re apply just to touch it back up.
Illamasqua Atomic is a fuchsia violet shade and is a very intense shade and you don't need a lot for vibrant looking lips. It is stunning on its own but I would recommend using a lip balm before you apply the lipstick for a smooth looking finish.You could even add a sheer lip-gloss on top of the lipstick for a day to night look.

You can pick an  Illamasqua lipstick over on their website for £18.50 or over on the ASOS website for roughly the same price but both websites have sales on from time to time. I am hoping to add Kontrol and Maneater to my collection in the future.

Illamasqua - Atomic
Verdict 9/10
