Review & Swatches - Illasmqua Glamore Lipstick in Buff

If you managed to catch my recent post about my experience at Selfridges (you can read it here if you missed it!), you may remember me saying that I found the nude lipstick of my dreams at the Illamasqua counter.

I love Illamasqua as a brand, I love that they cater to POC, that their swatch photos on their website are on a variety of skin tones, and their slick, quirky packaging.

I've never tried out an Illamasqua lipstick, and I wasn't on a quest to find one, I stumbled across Buff, a browney looking nude.


I swatched it on my hand and it came off as a brown/grey neutral shade on my skin tone. It's considered a Satin finish, but it's super pigmented and really long wearing. It's actually more long wearing than some matte lipsticks I own.



The shape of the lipstick itself isn't one that I'm used to, but it made it way easier to apply as I could get right up against the edge of my lip lines. The shade reminded me of Limecrime's Cashmere liquid lipstick, as it's more of a grey toned browney nude, rather than pink or brown based.

I would highly recommend this shade to my fellow POC, this neutral would look amazing on warmer/darker skin tones.

What's your favourite Illamasqua lipsticks?
