Two New Illamasqua Lipsticks from Paranormal Collection 2013
Illamasqua Lipsticks in shade ESP & Posture, £16.50 each are amazing duo combination for a two toned lip effect which Illamasqua are promoting from their new collection! I have used both shades now, and not for lips but for cream bases on my models eyes from a recent photoshoot for House Music ‘Fierce Angel’ next album cover . I couldn’t think of a better way to use these lipsticks!
ESP: A beautiful iridescent vivid purple tone with a matt finish with a colour intense pigmentation which has amazing staying power when applied to prepped & primed skin!
Posture: I will warn you… If this lipstick is not applied on the right skin tone & makeup design it can make you/models appear dead looking (which is amazing if you are creating that look) so I am not a fan of using this shade alone, however using my creative mind if blended & teamed up with other colours it looks amazing on. It’s a cool matte mauve colour, and once you build it up it will then look exactly like it does on the bullet and with a lot of build up and layering you can get the desired colour.
Due to both shades being matt you do need to really warm these lipsticks up for full action. I simply apply on the back of my hand with a lip brush and warm it up before applying to the skin. I used my Synthetic brushes from Crownbrush to add into this above eye design before setting with a variety of purple toned eyeshadows! It made the colours pop!

Does anyone else use lipsticks for blusher, eye designs etc?
