Valentine Special: Illamasqua I’m The One Collection #imtheone

Posted by Lipglossiping On February - 4 - 2014

I’m not doing any Valentine’s gift guides this year because, quite frankly, I can’t even come up with a single gift for my lovely husband, let alone a heartfelt collection that you lot could choose from.

A Twitter friend suggested that I just need to look down to find his gift, I assumed that she was talking about my baby bump rather than my vagina, but either way… after 10yrs of marriage and one snotty five-year old, I don’t think either suggestion will raise more than a sarcastic eyebrow.

However, the one Valentine’s-related release that has made my blood pump a little faster is this beautiful collection of sultry reds from Illamasqua.  If you’ve been reading Lipglossiping for more than a few seconds, you’ll already know about my love affair with red lipstick.  I only own the one from Illa’s range (Sangers), so to see the ridiculously feisty Maneater in my parcel evoked a couple of mid-air heel clicks.

Valentine Special: Illamasqua I'm The One Collection

The new I’m The One Collection* contains a total of four passionate pieces from the British makeup line.  Including:

NEW! Intense Lipgloss in Touch (£14.50) – Infused with fine shimmer particles, this plush gloss will add depth and fullness to your lips.

NEW! Colouring Pencil in Feisty (£14.00) – A creamy addition to your lip collection, use our Feisty pencil to create a precise and alluring red lip.

Lipstick in Maneater (£16.50) – An intense, full coverage formula, apply this lipstick to bare lips for a long-lasting pop of colour.

Nail Varnish in Throb (£14.50) – Apply two coats of this glossy blood red shade for an elegant, classic manicure.

Of all the items in the collection, I have to say that I fell in love with the least likely offering.

Feisty, the brand new lip pencil is one of the most pigmented-yet-creamy red lip-liners I’ve ever had the pleasure to use.  With a deep, long-lasting pigment… you usually have to compromise on the texture and a dry, unyielding lip pencil is something that many of us will be familiar with.  No such compromises are necessary here, it’s an absolute dream.

I’ll leave you with a couple of extremely pose-y FOTDs featuring the new Feisty Colouring Pencil and Maneater Lipstick.

    That lipgloss, holy crap!!!!

  2. Nah, she was probably talking about your vagina. GET CREATIVE, CHARLOTTE! You can’t get pregnant twice!

    In other news, though, these products really are rather pretty together. Not blue enough for me, but I bet the boy would love ’em. (On me, not him. He has a weird thing about warm reds. Perhaps you’ve just inspired my valentine’s day lip…)

    • Rae! There was once a time I used to not think twice about using the word vagina in a blog post… but nowadays, you know… blogging’s gone all upmarket n’ stuff. Sleepless night over that word, I tell ya!

      Boys do seem to like the less formal looking reds don’t they? Stupid boys.

      P.S. Your comment made me proper LOL. Proper.

    I think the gloss steals the show 🙂 It’s stunning!

    Not going to lie, I did have a little squee moment at being mentioned in this post (I assume it was me, that will be horrid if not!)

    And to clarify, I did mean the little bubsy but vagina works too.

    Loving that red lip liner, been looking for a classic powerful red – may have just found it.

    Your skin is looking pretty darn lovely – baby benefit, or a new regime? x

    • Yeah, that was you! Ha!

      The lip liner is honestly immense. I know everyone is like “ooh gloss, sparkly” but if you need a workhorse red liner, this one is amaze. My skin is so dry but the Becca Radiance Primer I picked up for £5.99 from Fragrance Direct is the bomb, proper sorting me out (if only superficially!) xxxx
