Illamasqua Glamore Satin Lipsticks in Kitsch and Pinkie

All kinds of crazy occurred when the new nude shades were added to the Illamasqua Glamore lipstick range – the brand’s first range of satin lipsticks – but at the same time with a lot less talk, there were four new shades added too, two of which I’m going to show you today.  I have to say, I really love the way Illamasqua does pink – they do what I’d call “pink with an edge” which results in some seriously beautiful shades that aren’t overly girly or sickly sweet, so a total thumbs-up from me.

There are four new non-nude shades that have been added and these are Vampette – a deep, berry shade; Rockabilly – cherry red; and the two pinks which the brand describes as a rose pink in Kitsch and a cool pink in Pinkie.  Having had a quick look on the site, there’s also another new shade called Virgin which appears to be a true red that looks absolutely gorgeous too.

I’ll say right away that Pinkie is an extremely tricky shade to wear that would suit someone who can pull-off very pale, chalky shades without looking like this:

Two words: “Josie Cunningham”.  It is not a good look for me sadly, yet I can see this on someone considerably cooler who can take shades like this and make them look good, whereas sadly, Josie and I are not these types of people.  Thankfully Kitsch is an absolutely gorgeous shade that has quite a bit of blue to make it very flattering for me and my pale skin:

What a difference a shade makes, eh?  It’s a little bit berry in certain lights which also makes it an ideal shade to carry into autumn and it’s a firm favourite for me as it works really well at pulling together a laid-back make-up look.  The Illamasqua Glamore lipsticks are £18.50 each.

    […] When I posted about the pink shades that extended the Illamasqua Glamore line-up, I mentioned that there appeared to be another new shade available on the Illamasqua site called Virgin.  It turns out this is the shade we’ll be seeing on Virgin Atlantic Cabin Crew from now on as Illamasqua have created a new make-up look to mark Virgin Atlantic’s 30th anniversary, hence the shade name “Virgin”.
