Nearlyblack Lipsticks: Illamasqua, Moth

Hey there, Internet!

Today’s post is about one of Illamasqua‘s newer lipsticks, Moth. Moth if I am not mistaken in the beginning was released as limited edition but from the five lipsticks of this set (Moth, Shard, Resist, Born, Wanton) it seems only Resist still is limited edition. The lipstick is £22.50 for 4g / 0.14 OZ product and should be used within 12 months.

Official description from webshop: Let your lips speak volumes with Lipstick in Moth. Indulge in colour-intense lipstick with a highly pigmented formula, in a creamy matt finish. Illamasqua Lipstick glides on smoothly and doesn’t give up without a fight for the perfect all-night pout. A must have for professional make-up artists, and those who want to make a statement.

My thoughts: I guess I have a problem, as soon as I see some dark reddish brown lipstick of a cruelty free company you will find it in my shopping basket. This happened a lot with Moth until I finally bought it though. The packaging, both paper and plastic, this time are golden instead of the typical Illamasqua black. The lipstick itself has the typical, slightly sweet Illamasqua scent to it and applies really smooth on the skin and on the lips. It is highly pigmented and does not stick to your piercings. Finish as they said is matte and depending on the light it will look chocolate brownish or show some bloody red hint which I really liked. As I was expecting it lasted for hours, not even my coffee and salad could make it disappear. Really happy and probably one of my favourites for day and night.

Today’s Makeup 16-09 (FOTD)

Hey there, Internet!

It was an Illamasqua kind of day. Usually I like to mix different brands of makeup but when I was playing with my face today all the products I went for were Illamasqua. Actually these day’s I dive into my entire collection quite a lot, even those colors that were not used for ages find their way onto the brushes and into the face. Reason? Detailed post will follow in a few days but changed my haircolor to some greenish black (even though some ‘black’ areas still do have a lot of copper and orange pigments to them but soon!)

Today’s Outfit & Makeup 16-07 (II)

Hey there, Internet!

There are not a lot of days that I consider being too warm for a jacket of some kind, but that day definitely was. So the DIY shirt from last post got its first se already because it is one of the thinnest fabrics and loose fit which both are perfect for this hot weather. Still, sunblock on, fan was added to the bag and off to the city, spent that entire day off outside, catching Pokémon!

Would Sunblock and Shadow from whatever we could find count as accessories?

Today’s Outfit & Makeup 16-07

Hey there, Internet!

Actually, nothing special was done that day, being lazy, watching DVDs, skype, cleaning the flat and that fuzz. But as you were able to read a few days ago, I slowly am getting back into my old shape which means my corsets and other ‘tight fitting’ clothes start to feel better on me again, who could resist putting them back on asap?
