It's not often I'm this excited about a lipstick. I've been stalking the launch of Generation Q from Illamasqua since I read Cami's amazing post and have been most excited about the raspberry pink lipstick in Magnetism.
I got an email yesterday saying the collection was launching in Debenhams today so I popped in to have a look. I spent a while chatting to Lauren at the newly positioned and very snazzy looking counter before parting with my pennies and leaving with Magnetism.
I got home an hour ago, took photos of the lipstick and quickly applied it. I'm obsessed with it already. It compliments my favourite scarf (which I conveniently happen to be wearing today; it's fate) beautifully.
The colour is a deep raspberry pink with a (very tiny) hint of purple and I think it's one that will flatter almost everyone. The texture of this lipstick is a bit different to the matte lipsticks we've all come to expect from Illamasqua; whilst it's incredibly pigmented, Magnetism is also a bit glossy and thus feels a lot more comfortable on the lips. I can't comment on how long it wears (because I've only had it on for 45 minutes) but I can say that it's easy to apply straight from the bullet which is handy for re-applying on the go. If I was doing things properly I'd use a lip liner and a lip brush but neither are really necessary.
Isn't it gorgeous?! If you buy one thing from the collection, make sure it's this lipstick. Magnetism is available nationwide at Illamasqua counters and online from tomorrow. It is priced at £16.
Please excuse the fact that the rest of my make up doesn't look too great; I wasn't planning on taking pictures!
