I purchased a Illamasqua Lipstick in the shade 'Drench' from their recent sale. Having never brought Illamasqua before, I didn't know what to expect but I certainly didn't expect the size of the box for the product I bought! I ordered online and a while later, a box the size of Glossybox plopped through my letter box. For one lipstick!? Excessive. However, I was pleased to receive a small sample of their perfume 'Freak' which I felt was a nice touch. I'm also pleased with the lipstick. What do you think?

The packaging of the lipstick its self is a little chunky for my tastes, but its a classy, glossy black so I can't complain too much! The Lipstick is a tiny bit drying, but find this with most matte lipsticks, and a slick of balm underneath the lipstick sorts this issue out. It also stays in place for several hours without sliding into your cracks around your mouth, etc. Its quite hard wearing, although drinking hot drinks whilst wearing it may leave a pink smear around your mug! 

I'm very very happy with the colour. Its bright and warm. I wore it with an all black outfit and it really pulled the whole ensemble together, giving it a pop.

Did you buy any makeup in the sales?
