Illamasqua I’m The One Valentines Collection* £50
I figured there was no better day to post about this new collection from Illamasqua than on Valentine’s Day itself, the day of love. The new I’m The One collection is a sensual mix of four racy-red products for nails and lips that celebrates and embraces wearable scarlets and the colour of love, or should that be lust? I’m The One is an amorous capsule collection featuring three lip products – a lip pencil (Feisty), a colour-intense lipstick (Maneater) and an intense lipgloss (Touch) completed with a fiery red shade for the nails (Throb) to complete the set.
I can never say no to a bold, red lip and this combination of the precise pencil, matte lipstick and then the decadent gloss is absolutely perfect to get your heart racing and to give you a beautiful Valentine’s makeover. Using a lip pencil to prep and line the lips before embarking on a statement lip colour is an absolute must in my books and Feisty lip pencil is creamy and soft to apply and is precise enough to sketch out the perfect outline or fill your lips in completely for a matte base to intensify the look. Maneater lipstick is the classic cherry-red shade with Illamasqua’s signature matte finish without being too drying. It is highly-pigmented and is just divine when paired with simple back eyeliner and bronzed skin. It is my perfect red shade and gives you the most kissable lips! Finally we have Touch, the intense red lipgloss with a sinful sprinkling of fine iridescent glitter which transforms your lips from heavenly to devilish in an instant, whether worn alone or layered over your scarlet lips. And to complete your Valentine’s makeover there is Throb – the classic red nail varnish to tantalise your talons with a lustful layer of daring scarlet – absolutely shameful after just two coats!
