Illamasqua have pulled out all the stops in 2014 with some incredible releases. If the most recent Matte Effect Summer 2014 Collection wasn't enough, Illamasqua have just added a whole new range set to steal any nude-lip lovers heart. Launching today, the Illamasqua Glamore Nude Lipsticks are something to get excited about!
Seven nude lip shades have been added to the existing seven shade Glamore range, doubling its size and providing more variety for the classic nude lip than many other brands on the market. A nude lip is the perfect fail-safe, the shade category you can rely on for any occasion whilst still pulling off warm and cool toned shades. A nude lip is effortlessly classic and is the perfect partner for any look. The seven Glamore nudes range in tone from warm to cool, some with more depth and intensity. I'd say four of the available nude shades are perfect for any skin tone, whilst the remaining three are probably more suited to darker beauties. You can see all seven shades plus swatches here (link).
I've been trying out three of the seven over the past week, and boy am I excited. I am already a huge Illamasqua fan and in particular, I adore their lipsticks which have some of the most beautiful, vivid, bold, eccentric shades out there. The formula of the Glamore lipsticks is absolutely heavenly. A luxuriously thick and creamy formula with a satin finish that feels light-weight whilst providing intense opaque colour in one application. Illamasqua is a brand you can rely on every time to produce products that pack a punch, with incredible pigmentation, great longevity and fabulous shade ranges.
Minx (£18.50) is a super gorgeous dusky rose, very warm with berry undertones but incredibly pretty at the same time. It's one I think I'd feel more comfortable wearing in the colder months ahead, or more of an evening shade for summer. The colour pay-off with Minx is amazing, with an opaque colour that effortlessly glides on, with no need to build it up for intensity; it's already intense. Cherub (£18.50) is a surprising one, a super bold coral nude that has quite the vibrant flash to it. It's certainly warmer than other corals in my stash, but I've found this one works particularly well with a golden summer eye. Rosepout (£18.50) is my favourite of the three, one of the cooler toned shades in the range. A neutral, bog-standard nude brown, it has that touch of something-something extra, with flecks of brightening pink that gives this lipstick a stand-out finish.
You can find Minx, Cherub and Rosepout along with all the other new nude Glamore lipsticks, over on the Illamasqua website where they are exclusively available to buy until the counter and online release at the end of the month from Selfridges and Debenhams.
What do you think to the Glamore collection, have you tried any of the other shades available in the range? Do you love a nude lip as much as me? Or are bolder, bright shades more your thing?
