Illamasqua Box Lipstick......

I always have, and I'm pretty sure I always will.
Some people may think that a red lippy is a red lippy, if only they knew how wrong they are.

Finding your signature red can be like finding a needle in a haystack. There are so many different shades, finishes and tones that I think that is why so many think that red lipstick doesn't suit them, find that right one tho and you are guaranteed a glamorous look that will NEVER go out of fashion.

I for example cant wear anything with a orange base, it just makes me look urgh and my teeth look yellow.

Put me in a classic blue based red tho, and woop woop, my teeth are back to there usual shade of white (Not bright white but I must admit they are not too shabby if I do say so myself lol) and I have the glam look that I adore.

So anyway, enough waffling on , I wanted to share with you one of my current favorites, this is BOX from Illamasqua, for me a beautiful classic red.

This lipstick has a satin finish in my opinion, its not too matte but doesn't have so much shine that you run the risk of it ending up everywhere!! 
Its long lasting ( I personally find red a good long lasting colour in general) and doesn't dry my lips out, a win win in my opinion.

This for me is what I see as a traditional red. Admittedly its not as blue as I would normally go for, however its a beauty of a red. I really do think that the perfect red just looks so classy and timeless.

What are your favorite red lipsticks?



  1. I love this shade its such a classic red, ive only very recently branched out into the world of red lipsticks and its not as scary as I once thought. This lipstick looks great, and I love how long lasting Illamasqua lipsticks are x x

  2. Sleek Stiletto is gorgeous, stays on forever xxx

  3. This is a lovely colour, and I'm glad to hear that you are enjoying this lipstick as I am getting an Illamasqua gift set for Christmas and have recently seen a bad review of one of their lippies (I'm yet to try one). I was hoping that this wouldn't be a universal opinion :)
