Be your own admirer.

That’s the message behind Illamasqua’s I’m the One collection, a small but eye-catching release with just one lip pencil, a lipstick, one gloss and a nail polish — but man, oh, man, are they bold! And red. Two things I can really get behind. 🙂


Here are pics and swatches of three of the four pieces from the collection…

  6. Love the last picture Karen! I’ve tried Maneater and didn’t love it on myself, it leaned a bit orange and I prefer cooler reds. But it looks lovely on you!

    !!!! That is gorgeous.

    The lip gloss looks like the PERFECT red. I might splurge. MIGHT. Just bought RiRi’s lip glass and it’s a nice subtle reddish pink.

    Thanks for sharing the info. Might have to practice my red lip technique 🙂

    Hey Karen, what a beautiful red lipstick! Really interesting combo too, the purple/pink subtle smokey eye with warm red lips. It works and is stunning.

    Love how your blog is so inspiring for different make up looks to try out. Especially for us ‘natural palette only’ type of girls with secret red lip obsessions.
