Day 1 of the advent season. The only calendar I have bought this year is the Look Fantastic calendar, having missed out last year. The calendar itself was £89 and is worth over £300 in products, plus the added bonus of a jewellery/ accessory cabinet once you get to the 25th.

And so here we are on day 1…

Illamasqua Lava Lips Marbled Lipsstick in shade Vixen

Illamasqua Lava Lips Marbled Lipstick in shade Vixen

RRP £20

I love Illamasqua lipsticks for their quality and pigment, but I’m not quite as excited about the marbled lipsticks. The marbled lipsticks are a mix of light and dark shades and blend to a slightly different shade with every application. It just feel a bit gimmicky to me and I’m not sure if I like the variability in the shade. That said, the finish of all Illamasqua lipsticks are beautifully creamy while still being very matte. They are definitely up there as one my favourite matte lipstick brands.


Have you tried the marbled lipsticks? What were your thoughts?
