If you are on the hunt for the perfect red lipstick then look no further than Illamasqua’s “Box”.
Regular readers of my blog will know that this has been a staple red in my collection; my HOLY GRAIL that for a good while was out of stock for an absolute AGE at Illasmasqua stores!
I visited the Selfridges & Beak Street stores several times over the last few months to always find it out of stock. Not that I was ever short of red lipsticks mind you…here is a handful of the red lipsticks in my collection:
This is only a few of what I could easily find & you will notice that there are a few mac ones too; all of which I’ve never been 100% content with…so I resorted to scraping the remnants of my beloved Box lippie:
This is the red that features the most in many of my outfit of the day pics, it’s just the most perfect red shade with blue undertones, super long lasting & a fantastic vintage matte finish.
I know many people rave about Mac’s Russian Red but I find it to have no depth or richness of colour like Box does. It’s just a very confident & bold red that I LOVE.
So you can imagine my joy when I finally got my mitts on a new tube of my HG!
