Illamasqua Toxic Nature:  Flare Lipstick

Illamasqua Flare Lipstick (£15.50 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “bright orange,” and it is new for spring/summer and part of the brand’s Toxic Nature collection, which should show up at Sephora in April. For now, though, it is available through Illamasqua directly.   It’s a vibrant, medium-dark orange–it’s almost neon but more like traffic cone orange.

And yes, that is a broken lipstick.  It arrived that way, with the entire bullet dislodged and stuck to the cap, and I used absolutely no finesse to maneuver out it would appear!  I haven’t had this issue with my other Illamasqua lipsticks, so I’m considering it a one-time deal and not a product defect.

my thoughts on the formula: Illamasqua’s Lipstick formula feels a little dry when applied, but let it warm up on your lips, because it really isn’t the drying kind. It does hug the lips, though, which makes it a much longer wearing lipstick (six hours or more).

Flare

B+
It's a nice bright orange with a near matte finish, and it has a tendency to pull the yellowness out in my natural skin tone.  I think this is an orange best suited for warmer complexions.
