Illamasqua Lipstick - Howl

A few weeks ago I attended a master class session with the amazing Alex Box, Illamasqua's make up genius.
At the event, one of the make up artists suggested I try Howl, a blood / cherry red with warm undertones. It doesn't take much to convince me to try a 'different' red so I quickly added this to my collection.
As with my other Illamasqua's lipsticks, Howl is also fantastic. The pigment, consistency, non feathering factor and packaging all rate very highly in my book and continue to lure me back for more. I'll be swatching more Illamasqua red colours soon so stay tuned!

Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture - 1 Le Rouge

YSL's new Rouge Pur Couture lipstick range is amazing. I purchased 1 Le Rouge a couple of months back and am really pleased with my purchase. The product is highly pigmented, long wearing and works like a lip conditioner without feathering. The packaging is incredibly sophisticated and I love the printed YSL logo on the bullet (packaging is my weakness)!
