Illamasqua Atomic Lipstick
Illamasqua Toxic Nature: Atomic Lipstick
Illamasqua Atomic Lipstick (£15.50 for 0.14 oz.) 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. Illamasqua describes Atomic as a “fuchsia violet.” After swatching and applying, Atomic is a deep, reddened fuchsia with violet and fuchsia sheen. It has that satin finish but such a strong pull of iridescent sheen that it almost looks like a frost.
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).
