As a huge fan of Illamasqua, I was thrilled to hear about the new I'm the One Collection (Illamasqua*, £50), which contains four sensual, wearable scarlet reds in a limited edition Valentine's Day collection that's left me smitten. With Valentine's Day just around the corner, people will be planning their day, deciding what to wear, and if you're anything like me trying to find the best makeup for a Valentine's Day look. I'm the One takes the hassle out of Valentine's Day, with a perfectly themed collection that covers all the areas you want a pop of colour. Including two of Illamasqua's favourite scarlet products alongside two brand new products, this collection is one not to miss.
Having never tried an Illamasqua lip liner, I was excited to see one of the new shades in the collection, is the Fiesty Colouring Pencil, a true scarlet red. The liner itself has a lovely creamy yet firm formula that could even be worn alone, but works as the perfect base for the red lip partner in the collection. Illamasqua lipsticks are some of my favourites and I've built up quite the collection (look out for a collection post soon!) Maneater Lip Colour is a classic cherry red with the signature matte finish you find with most Illamasqua lipsticks. A really beautiful shade, the lipstick itself has the perfect formula which is just creamy enough to glide onto the lips effortlessly, with incredible colour pay off for a real opaque red and brilliant longevity.
To add a bit of something-something to your look, another new shade, the incredibly beautiful Touch Intense Lipgloss, a deep cherry red with stunning fine red and pink shimmer that's super subtle but leaves the most gorgeous effect. Highly pigmented, this could easily be worn alone, but teamed with Fiesty and Maneater, you have the perfect red lip. To finish of the scarlet theme, I was so happy to see the collection included the beautiful Throb Nail Varnish, a blood red that needs just two coats for a full opaque colour. Illamasqua polishes are really some of the best of the best, with no-streak formulas, opaque colours, long-lasting colour and my nails always remain chip free for over a week. Love, love, love.
The I'm the One collection retails for £50, saving £9.50 if you were to purchase each product individually. Perfect for Valentine's? Definitely. Even more perfect for any makeup adorer with a love for true, bright and vibrant reds? Without a doubt.
