Swatch Sunday: Illamasqua “Flare” lipstick


Now let me begin with saying that orange isn’t a shade of lipstick I would ever choose for myself. Orange just isn’t a shade I naturally gravitate towards…it’s just a bit of a funny one no?

I was given Illamasqua’s “flare” lipstick at an event a few years back…tried it on in the house but ultimately it’s just sat in my collection of lippies & never really seen the light of day.

That being said I thought I’d choose it for this week’s “Swatch Sunday” as I do love the textures & longevity of Illamasqua’s lipstick formulations & Flare is a bit of a different one…

Check it out:

Have I worn it outside of the flat?


I consider myself quite bold on the lipstick front but am not convinced that this one is for me. But looking back at this photo I think it might be growing on me. Bit OTT with the red hair mind you!

Would you wear orange lippie? Would love to hear your thoughts :)
