Illamasqua Glamore Lipstick in Virgin Review

1st October 2014 in Lipstick, Makeup - 14 Comments - 2 min read >/div>
Hey Beauties!

I thought i would do a post today on this awesome lipstick from Illamasqua called Virgin (£18.50*) Its is a part of a collaboration between Illamasqua and Virgin Atlantic to celebrate their 30th anniversary also after the revealing of the redesigned iconic red uniforms, from what i understand this shade of lipstick aptly named Virgin will be worn by all of the staff at the airline.

Colour and Pigmentation
Virgin is a warm cherry colour which reminds me a lot of MAC Ruby Woo actually so it would be great for you guys who want a change but i’ve heard a lot of people dont like to wear Ruby Woo as it doesnt suit them so maybe try this before you buy it . As with all Illamasqua lipsticks the pigment is amazing i feel like in terms of pigment you cant beat Illamasqua because even with their satin lipsticks the colour is just so opaque.
Wear Time
From what ive heard from everyone is that these lipsticks last around 4-5 hours and for me i would say the same about 4-5 hours you could blot and reapply that way they might last longer but what i do like about the way these wear off is that you’re left with a sort of stain rather than it just completely wiping of your lips so i suppose in a way thats a great thing
Packaging

I say this every time i review an Illamasqua lipstick but the packing is great its really simple, a shiny rectangular tube that is kept the same right across the Illamasqua range as i like to think of their shape. Illamasqua lipsticks snap shut so you won’t find the lid off in your bag or pocket staining everything. Apart from the design of the packaging its just your average lipstick tube

Price and Where to Buy

If you’re in the UK you can purchase these online or at any Illamasqua Counter, if you live outside the UK then Virgin is set to launch internationally sometime in October. You can also purchase the “Virgin Gift Set” which contains the Virgin Lipstick, Neutral Palette and Lip Pencil in Lust for £50 and that can be found online as well

  • I see this all the time people talking about shrinking their pores by using hot water and closing them with cold water but this simply isn’t possible 
There are no muscles connected to the pore so there is no way for them to open and close. The size of pores is largely down to genetics and there is not much you can do to change that.

He only muscle that can be found is the arrector pili which causes goose bumps by pulling the hairs up on your skin but it doesn’t have anything to do with your pores and tightening them. 
When you see an enlarged pore it doesn’t mean it’s open it most likely means it’s congested with dead skin cells and hardened sebum however you can fix this by using something like salicylic acid which can penetrate the pore lining and flush everything out making the pore appear smaller.

While there are products out there that can blur and temporarily tighten the skin there is nothing permanent out there that can change the size of pores.

  • If you haven't already heard Kylie Jenner is now dipping into skincare as well as makeup.

All I'll say is it's completely different putting a makeup line together as that's rather easy but trying to put together a skincare line that's actually useful and not a bunch of generic rubbish is harder.

Kylie Jenner has effectively repackaged one of the worst face scrubs known to man, St Ives Apricot Scrub! 
This new scrub will contain crushed walnut shells as it's main exfoliant which couldn't be worse for the skin as it has the tendency to cause micro tears in the skin if it's used roughly and can lead to all sorts of problems from letting bacteria into the skin to comprising your hydrolipid barrier.

With all of these new technology in skincare coming from brands like Deciem it feels like this Kylie Jenner product is coming from the late 2000s. To me it just screams lack of thought and can we talk about how generic it is? It's like all she wants to do is  make more money instead of actually formulating something actually useful.

What do you think about this new range? .

  • I know your first instance when it's really sunny is to strip off and enjoy the sun and while it's true you should enjoy the gorgeous days of summer you should be protecting yourself.

While we should be wearing sunscreen everyday it's especially important on beautiful sunny days like these.

You should be applying a broad spectrum sunscreen of at least SPF 30 every 2/3 hours when you're out in direct sunlight.

It's recommended that you use at least 20p piece size of sunscren for your face. 
I absolutely love the @larocheposayuki Anthelios range especially the Fluid version of Anthelios. I also really like @colorescienceuk sunforgettable mineral SPF 50 powder for reapplication when wearing makeup.

  • There's this idea that somehow applying more of a product will get you better results but this isn't true.

The opposite is actually true if you apply more all you'll get is unnecessary irritation and it might put you off using a product.

When using actives try to follow the recommendations on the back of the packaging.

I know I've done this before when I first used AHAs and it didn't go well but I'm glad I eventually learned as my mum would say "I'm a bull in a China shop" 🤣🤣

  • *SKINCARE ROUTINE*
I thought I would mix up my routine a little bit lately.

Cleanser- @dermalogicauk  Special Cleanser - I love this little bottle it's great for using when at the gym. It's a basic cleanser that gets the job done.

Tone/Serum - @katesomervilleskincare Dermalquench Liquid Lift *gifted* -  I apply it straight after cleansing. This is a spray loaded with hyaluronic acid and oxygen, apparently it's meant to felt firm and smooth whilst quenching and plumping the skin hence the name. It really is amazing if I'm honest it's as if you're just wiping away any dehydration and puffiness.

Serum - @officialmedik8 Hydr8 B5 Intense *gifted* - Whilst I do feel like this is way too expensive for what it is I do really like it. Hydr8 is really hydrating and soothing Its great for using with a retinol as it helps to combat the dryness with the Natural  Moisturising Factors (NMF)

Treatment - @sundayriley A+ Retinoid Serum *gifted - This is a brand new retinoid to me I originally used Luna which was the first ever retinoid I used so I was pretty excited to try this out. it says it's 6% it's more like a 4/5% because there's no way the plant like ingredients actually constitute as retinol. Other than that I'm liking it it doesn't compare to Adapalene but it's still good.

Moisturiser - @stubborncosmetics Customised Moisturiser *gifted - I am freaking loving this moisturiser it's so good to have a different moisturiser for the different parts of my face. I'm amazed no one has had this idea before it's so simple yet genius! I have combination skin so there is a side for the dry patches and a side for the oily parts of my face. This is a truly balancing moisturiser ❤️
