AW09/10 Stars: Illamasqua Lipstick in Avenge

illamasqua avenge lipstick

Testing and trying (purely for your edification, y’unnerstan’, I get nothing from this) autumn /winter launches across a spread of brands, I’ve found a few truly ace products that I’m using all the time at the mo. YSL’s Creme de Blush is one, as is the many, many-mentioned Rouge Dior Serum de Rouge. Being such a blusher/lipstick whore, another that’s seriously taken my fancy is Illamasqua’s Avenge lipstick, from the Dystopia collection.

If I thought Dior’s Diorlyworld was the height of slutty pinkness then this caused me to have a very quick re-think. Avenge is bright. Oh boyyyyaaa, this is really, really, really, really bright. Verging on flouro, it is of course right up my show-off street. It makes my teeth look unbelievably yellow, it won’t work at all on chapped lips as it heightens the appearance of any flaky bits, but if you condition your pout beforehand then it’s a super-star.

So basically, I really, really, really, really love this.

    the girls at the counter were wearing this when i popped in the other day.. it’s pretty fierce!
    mind, i was v distracted by the uneven lines of their lipliners…

    i’ve often been tempted by ‘diorlyworld’ the dior that you wear, kirstie.. something always stops me tho!

    i’m really liking illamasqua.. my new fave brand in fact!

  • Glamazon says:

    Glitter – I have been looking at reviews of primers recently as I am thinking of buying and Illamasqua seems to have better reviews than Laura Mercier on makeupalley and Sephora.

  • Ellie says:

    Sounds fab, but how much will it set you back?

  • Kirstie says:

    Ellie – not got the price to hand but illamasqua is mac-priced, if that helps.

  • Sarade says:

    I still prefer gloss and lipliner to lipstick, but I love this packaging!

  • Glitterkitty says:

    interesting glamazon.. i’ve never used a primer but i would expect the illamasqua one to be good…

    ellie.. kirties right.. i got a lip gloss for €15 last week and the 4 shadow palette was €35
