Illamasqua Eurydice lipstick* £15.50

available online from Tuesday 17th April…

Last month, Illamasqua unleashed an explosion of shades and textures on the makeup world with their new Spring Summer ’12 collection – Human Fundamentalism. We were catapulted into a chaos of colours and unconformity with a teal lipstick and bold yet contrasting eyeshadow palettes heading up the eclectic range. A month on and just as we begin to lapse into a calm and muted state, Illamasqua have triggered the second evolution as six new lines are added to the Human Fundamentalism collection. This aftershock brings us two new super-bright lipsticks (Eurydice and Liable – a rich scarlet/orange) and a rainbow of four daring eyeshadows (Fledging – bright green, Hype – bold yellow, Inception – rich violet, Vapour – tangerine orange).

illamasqua Eurydice

Eurydice is described as a bright pink lipstick, pure and simple. It is staggering fluorescent in the tube, with evident blue-ish undertones which makes it a treat for the whiteness of your teeth. The pigmentation is bold and unfaltering, really staining the lips throughout the day and long after you have removed it. The finish is extremely matte and is very unforgiving if you have the slightest of dry lips. There is so much I love about this lipstick such as the intense colour, matte finish and amazing lasting-power (it really won’t fade!), but one things that disappoints me is the consistency. I like my lipsticks like I like my chocolate – smooth and creamy, but with Eurydice it is quite hard work when it comes to the application. I would definitely advised priming your lips first with a bit of balm before applying Eurydice, so that it smoothes on easier without pulling or tugging the skin. If only the texture was a little bit softer, it would make this beauty of a lipstick even more beautiful.

Are you enticed by Eurydice?

    ASOS were carrying this as an exclusive a few weeks ago and I caved and bought it. I agree that it is drying but the colour! Oh the colour! Nothing lasts like an Illamasqua lipstick on my lips.

    Gorgeous colour. I love Illamasqua lipstick shade range, I own 6 myself, but the formula is so naughty! Can't wear them everyday as much as I'd love to!

    Love this. It's really similar in tones to Scandal but it's obviously a lot darker.
    I'm not really into my Scandal lipstick by Illamasqua because it is too light so I think I'll get this!

    I love their packaging.
