Illamasqua Haul

Hello everyone :)
Yesterday I went to Selfridges in London and spent some of my Christmas money (late I know!) at the Illamasqua counter.

This is what I bought:

A powder blusher in Katie, and three lipsticks in Liar, Fable and Obey. Sorry the packaging looks a bit dusty - it just seems to attract dust, and lots of it!

^ Lipstick in Liar. This is the only non-matte lipstick I bought. I had wanted Liv, but they didn't have it in stock. This is a gorgeous very light baby-pink with very subtle glitter. I am wearing it today and love it. It is along the same lines as YSL's Rouge Volupte in Lingerie Pink, but far more long lasting. My only issue is the glitter/shimmer. Although it is subtle, I do prefer matte lipsticks, so for this reason I am tempted to get Liv at some stage. (According to the MA Liv and Liar are virtually identical, but Liv is the matte version)

^ Lipstick in Fable. Illamasqua describes it as a 'Bright rose pink' which sums it up pretty effectively. It is a very pretty shade, but I would say it was probably better for summer. This is much more wearable than Liar, but I prefer Liar!

^ Lipstick in Obey. Illamasqua describes this as a 'Bright peachy pink' - I would actually day this runs a bit more coral. It reminds me quite a lot of Barry M's 147, if any of you have that. Another gorgeous shade, but brighter than I had previously expected. I can see myself wearing this a lot when the sunny months arrive!

^ Powder blusher in Katie. Described by Illasmasqua as a 'Soft candy pink', this blush is exactly that. Very similar to Mac's Well Dressed, but with far superior pigmentation. One light swipe of this blush is all you need. I am really impressed with the pigmentation of this blush, so who knows? Might be buying another one...or two at some stage!
