Illamasqua Maneater Lipstick
Illamasqua Maneater Lipstick

For spring, Illamasqua released a red-themed collection called, I’m the One, which features a lipstick, lipgloss, lip pencil, and polish. The lipstick and polish are repromotes from the permanent collection, while the lipgloss and lip pencil are new.

Illamasqua Maneater Lipstick ($24.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “matte classic red.” It’s a vibrant, medium red with neutral-to-warm undertones and a satin-matte finish. It had rich, opaque pigmentation. The texture was lightly creamy, so it did drag a little on lips, but it wasn’t difficult to apply–it definitely felt creamier than some of the drier Illamasqua lipsticks in the range. The color wore well for seven hours and left behind a stain, but it was somewhat drying. Kat Von D Underage Red (P, $19.00) is more matte. Anna Sui Minnie Mouse (01) (LE) is cooler-toned. MAC Night to Remember (LE, $16.00) is similar. NARS Future Red (LE, $26.00) is glossier. Marc Jacobs Beauty Neo-Noir (126) (P, $30.00) is glossier. Urban Decay F-Bomb (P, $22.00) is darker. NARS Mysterious Red (LE, $25.00) is more matte. MAC Eden Rouge (LE, $16.00) is darker. MAC Ruffian Red (LE, $16.00) is similar. MAC Must Be Red (LE, $16.00) is similar. See comparison swatches.

Illamasqua Touch Intense Lipgloss ($22.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is described as a “red with fine shimmer.” It’s a brightened, cherry red with subtle neutral-to-cool undertones and very fine pink and ruby red shimmer. It had mostly opaque color coverage, and this shade wore well for five hours and was lightly hydrating. Milani Red My Lips (12) (P, $5.49) is less shimmery. Maybelline Signature Scarlet (020) (P, $8.99) is lighter. Giorgio Armani #400 (P, $29.00) is less shimmery. Revlon Fire (P, $7.49) is warmer. MAC Driven by Love (P, $19.50) is darker, cooler-toned. MAC Ready to Roam (LE, $15.00) is slightly darker. See comparison swatches.

Illamasqua Feisty Lip Pencil ($20.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “scarlet red.” It was a brightened, medium red with slightly warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was just lightly creamy, but it wasn’t too difficult to apply, and it did apply evenly. It had opaque color coverage, and it lasted for five hours before it started to show signs of “cracking” where it pulled into lip lines. Worn alone, it did not look clingy and dry as some lip pencils can, but it’s not a particularly comfortable product to wear by itself as it is slightly drying. MAC Kiss Me Quick (P, $19.50) is darker. MAC Redd (P) is warmer. MAC Cherry (P) is cooler-toned. MAC Freehand (LE, $15.00) is very similar. See comparison swatches.

  1. I really liked how the lip pencil looks in the lip swatch, very creamy. And the combo of all three of them is like fiery red… looks so good. <3

    I love it!!!! Love red lipstick that looks so pretty on you, I think I need it ♡♡♡

  3. I want the lipstick and lipgloss so badly.

  4. What a lovely combination…I’m always a sucker for a great red combo!

    Christine, I can’t tell you how beautiful your skin is looking since sometime, it has a photoshop effect.
    Please, can you do a video or photo tutorial of your latest foundation, highlighter, powder application ?

    • Hi Neha,

      I apply my foundation the exact same way I have done for four or five years now – no changes! I just have way better skin today than I did a year ago, let alone four years ago.

  6. I LOVE red lipstick, I have a whole drawer full of them :) This one seems to have more of an orange tint to it though, I like the deeper, more blood red colors. I love how you set your post up with the photos though cause just looking at the tube, it looks deep red and when shown on the lips, you can see the orange come through. Awesome job!

    Wow, the perfect red lip! Maneater is stunning! xo

  8. I think actually just the lip pencil and the lipgloss would be enough!

  9. Both the gloss and the lipstick look great! They both actually look a bit lighter than I had expected, and I like it!

  10. Amanda

    Maneater has been one of my favorite red lipsticks for awhile!! I always get compliments on it too. It is drying, but it looks great on us pale girls :)

    • What do you like to wear it with (cheeks/eyes)?

      • Amanda

        I don’t put too much thought into it, to be honest, but I like to use a bronze shade like my old Coco Beach pigment or Smog e/s on my eyes and any blush. I *have* to use lipliner with it though to keep things looking clean! I’ve been using one from MUFE, but I am thinking about buying the Illamasqua one if it matches better.

  11. Looks nice, I really like them all together. The lip liner looks nice and creamy too!

  12. All three are gorgeous! You know I’m all over these! ;-)

  13. Zainab

    I definitely want all three of these!

  14. O_o What a stunning combination!

    I’m so impressed by how smooth that lip pencil looks! Still too lazy to really bother with lip pencil myself (bad, I know), but nevertheless, that one looks good :-)

  15. The pencil,gloss, and lipstick together look amazing! Very vampire-esque hah but I love!

  16. Ooh! That lip combo is really nice! Touch is my favorite out of the 3. :)

  17. Maneater lipstick :o wow!

  18. Avatar of Helene Helene

    I love all three, but would probably not wear all of them at the same time. I love how pigmented the Illamasqua products are though the lipsticks I have are quite difficult to apply. (Howl and Underworld)
    I’m really looking forward to their new lipsticks, you know, with the creamier formula. At least one of them will find it’s way to me when I order products from them next time.
    As always wonderfully swatched!

  19. Oh my – I am now obsessed with this lipstick! And the lip pencil also looks really great!

  20. Have mercy – I LOVE red lips!
    Is Maneater at all similar to the late MAC lipstick Powerhouse?
    Powerhouse was the very first lipstick that I could count on to look RED, not pink, on me, and I’ve been looking for its dupe for literally years.
    The closest I’ve found so far is Paula Dorf’s Legend, which is a wonderful true red, but is on the dark side.
