Illamasqua | Encounter Lipstick

The party season is over, it's time to put your Christmas frocks away and try and repair the damage you have caused to your miserable bank balance but none of this should mean that you disregard all of those vibrant reds and festive burgundy lipsticks until next Christmas - if anything you should be making the most out of that expensive Mac lippy that you bought in a panic two hours before your Christmas work do (we've all been there!)

This pillar box red number from Illamasqua is quite possibly one of my most successful panic purchases to date. A staple for any girl, a Hollywood glamour style red that really lifts your whole look immediately. The packaging from Illamasqua is the one for me though, it's whole glossy black finish is so on point and classic, whilst being a block tube casing rather than a bullet it feels a lot bigger than most lipsticks to hold but sits incredibly well in your hand when applying.

The shade Encounter can be as dramatic or dressed down as you like, team it with a sultry smokey eye for a perfect night look or a subtle shimmer and fresh skin for the day.
