When Sephora stopped carrying Illamasqua (bummer), it made the brand a little harder to find here in the U.S. for those of us who don’t happen to live within driving distance of the Kryolan City stores in Chicago or Toronto.
But if you do live within day-trip distance, and/or you don’t mind paying extra for shipping to order online, you might want to check out Glamore, Illamasqua’s line of full-coverage lipsticks released earlier this fall, because talk about pigment up the wazoo!
There are 15 shades available, and I’ve been wearing three of the nudes — Tease, Cherub and Naked — all of which are completely full coverage and super smooth. They glide on without any patchiness whatsoever. Really pretty to wear with smokey eyes, and other dramatic eyes, I imagine. Wear time clocks in at around 4-5 hours for me, and they have a barely-there rosy lipstick flavor and scent that I like.
They are rather expensive at $30 a tube, but I think you can stretch these out, since you’ll probably only want/need one layer.
PRICE: $30.02 each
AVAILABILITY: Available now online. If you live in the U.S., they can be difficult to find in stores, unless you live near the Kryolan City stores in Chicago or Toronto.
MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: B+ (I think they’re gorgeous, but they aren’t cheap, and around here in the U.S., they’re also a little hard to find.)
