Illamasqua Flare Lipstick

I never used to be much into orange lipstick. In fact there was a time I thought it was just a poor cousin to red. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Recently though I have been seeing some really nice bright orange lipsticks and the newest one is from Illamasqua’s Toxic Nature collection.

The name says it all: Flare.

I mean really, who wouldn’t like this? What I love about Flare is it’s not too warm or cool. It’s right in the middle which makes it super wearable for a wide variety of skin colors.

Also it’s very pigmented and feels pretty creamy going on. I cannot comment on wear just yet as I haven’t worn it for very long.


If you are looking for a bright fun summer lipstick, but are tired of red or fuchsia, orange might be for you!
