Illamasqua Lipstick in Atomic Review, Photos and Lip Swatches. This Is Love

I already did a  review on Illamasqua’s Cream Pigments from the new Spring/Summer 2011 makeup collection and today I want to tell you about one more products that I’ve got to try out.

The Toxic Nature Lipstick in Atomic (£15.50) which is described as a fuchsia violet.

And oh my goodness,  I absolutely loved this lipstick. I have one more lipstick by Illamasqua which is gorgeous but is a bit drying and you should really have your lips in perfect condition to wear it.

However, this one is different, I don’t find it drying and I don’t find it enhancing all the dry areas so much although I must say that my lips are in a great condition which is hard to believe (thanks to this lip balm).

It also stays on for

Illamasqua Cream Pigments in Dab, Emerge and Mould. Review and Swatches

As you may remember, Illamasqua has launched the brand new product which is called Cream Pigment and you can read about it here.

There are 6 shades in general and I was given 3 of them to try out. I have Emerge, Mould and Dab. So here is what Illamasqua says about them and my opinion.

First of all I have to say that I like the idea that you can use these on eyes/lips/cheeks/face/body- whatever you can think of and whatever suits you.

I  also like what Alex Box said about these: “I don’t think we have ever created a product that is as hard working as Cream Pigment. They can correct or enhance, disguise or reveal. I am obsessed with their versatility; blush, lips, eyes, contouring … they are absolutely my favourite product right now. Super-blendable, they can be pressed and blended into skin or slicked on for graphic shapes. Education is key with the pigments. Once you have learnt how to master them, you can control their impact.”

So here we go:

Emerge (peach) – “This peach brightens under eye shadows and is beautiful as a highlighter on olive – darker skintones. It’s also a very flattering blusher on paler skin tones.”

Unfortunately, it doesn’t work for me as an under  eye concealer as I find the texture  heavy for my taste and it looks too obvious on myself. As for the lipstick – I wouldn’t wear it on it’s own as it looks like concealer on me but it’s great to mix with other shades to make them lighter! I like to use this as a blusher as it looks very pretty on my skin tone,  really suitable for Spring – fresh and peachy.

I was interested in how it is compared with Rude ( I L-O-V-E Rude, definitely, a must have from the brand) so here you go. If I had to choose between both – I’d go for Rude as I love the shade, texture, blend-ability, well, everything about it.

Dab (lilac) – “This
