Illamasqua had a flash sale couple of weeks ago. I'm glad I noticed that, everything was -50%. But it took me an hour to get my order through. Illamasqua relesed Paranormal collection few weeks ago and I was interested in the 2 lipsticks: ESP and Posture (both are purples). Too bad ESP was sold out before I could get my order through. I've been reading reviews about ESP being quite dry and not that good, so I'm not too disappointed.
It was really hard to decide what to buy. Too many option, too little time. I knew I wanted the cool mauve lipstick 'Posture' and I've also wanted to buy 'Atomic' lipstick and 'Naked Rose' blush. I probably should've bought Skin Base in shade 04 or Gleam in shade 'Aurora'. But maybe it's better I didn't get that much stuff.
Lime Crimen Chinchillaa. Alempana on sävyvertailu. Tämä ei ole vielä päässyt käyttöön, joten pysyvyydestä ym. en osaa vielä sanoa. Koostumus on melko kuiva, joten väri pysyy varmaan oikein hyvin paikallaan.
I've been wearing a lot of lipsticks lately (almost everyday at work). 'Atomic' is a nice work color and I had high hopes about it, but I'm not sure if my hopes were met. It's a very pretty fuschia color that stays and applies well, but it was lighter than I expected. 'Posture' just screamed my name. And yes, it resembles Lime Crime's Chinchilla. I haven't tried it yet, but based on its dryness, it's going to be long-lasting.
Naked Rose is just as pretty as I thought. Beautiful, neutral pink. First I feared that it would be too similar to MAC's Pink Cult, but Pink Cult is greyer (in a good way) and Naked Rose is more beige. Wonderful everyday shade. Highly pigmented, so little goes a long way.
Here is a comparison. As you can see Posture is much lighter than Chinchilla. I hoped that Posture would make a perfect dupe, but sadly not. I've heard many people say that Atomic is a unique shade, but my Urban Decay's Jilted is really close to Atomic, but it has a stronger bluish glow.
