Illamasqua Toxic Nature Collection – Atomic Lipstick Review

Posted by Lipglossiping On March - 15 - 2011

Illamasqua’s Atomic lipstick is a non-hooker fuchsia pink with blue flashes makes for one hawt Spring/Summer lipstick!

It’s packed with pigment for an opaque, matte finish which is pretty unforgiving on lips that are in anything but the best condition.

I own a few Illamasqua lippies and they are all hard-textured, solidly opaque affairs that are unkind to dry lips but I think this is the most drying yet and should be accompanied with a lipgloss.

I know that some will be happy to sacrifice moisturisation for lasting power and Atomic has plenty of this, with the kind of longevity you’d expect from a stain rather than a lipstick.  Thanks to the hard texture of the lipstick, you shouldn’t get too many bleeding issues from this bright.  I didn’t notice any problems despite not using a lip liner… it just doesn’t move.

Overall: Illamasqua Atomic lipstick* is an awesome shade with amazing pigment, incredible lasting power but potentially quite uncomfortable to wear without proper lip preparation.

Illamasqua Atomic is a shade from the Toxic Nature collection and is available to buy on counter, instore or online priced at £15.50

  2. My Gosh that is stunning! You just woke up my addiction for fuchsia lipsticks!

  3. Lucy says:

    It’s a smidge too frosty for my liking but it’s a pretty colour!

  4. I love it!! big fan of a bit of frosting…really suits you as well !!

  5. Ida says:

    Your lips must be in perfect condition, it looks awesome on you!

  6. I’ve got this one, too and I LOVE it! Interesting, how unlike you, I don’t like it with a gloss. And I even think that this particular lipstick looks better even on my dry lips than the other shades that I have…
    Speaking of the shade (which is gorgeous) most of my girlfriends loved it while men ehm didn’t, not to say that they hated it.

    Too bad it’s drying + uncomfortable to wear – it’s such a pretty color.

  14. gio says:

    That’s a gorgeous shade and it really suits you!

    Makes me wonder if this is Welt by a different name as the description sounds identical to the lipstick i have ( and mine looks nothing like the Welt on their website????). Welt was in their sale recently and i picked it up. Love the colour, especially with the blue fash. I wear Welt alot, so will pop in with it, to compare!
    Looks great on you!

    With any Illamasqua lipstick, i apply balm when i start doing my makeup. By the time i get to my lips, they are ready for the lipstick and my lips dont feel dry that way.

  16. Leah says:

    Wow, that is so pretty! *covets*

  17. Gemx says:

    I love the colour and the subtle blue sheen. I’m never sure about the Illamaqua lipstick formula, but it does last even if it is slightly dry and hard 🙂

  18. Annie says:

    Looks great on you! Would be too cool-toned for my colouring though.
