Illamasqua lipstick in Sangers is my go to lipstick for long lasting red lips. I brought this last year when Illamasqua were having the sale for just £7.50.
The colour of this lipstick is a true blood red, for me Its definitely an evening shade or one for the winter if you were to wear it in the day. Before applying it I always make sure to exfoliate and moisturise my lips for a smoother application of the lipstick. the formula of the lipstick is not at all drying despite the semi matte finish.
|It looks slightly orange here, trust me, its not.|
I've worn this lipstick in the day a couple of times and it has such incredible staying power, for me I found that it lasted around 5 hours before the tiniest amount started to wear on the inner part of my lips so a quick touch up and it went on to last a further 5 hours.
Illamasqua Sangers Lipstick is so pigmented, all you need is one swipe on the lips for full coverage.
Overall I love this lipstick! it is the perfect true red with it not being too blue, pink or orangey, its incredible lasting power is also a big winner for me. It has certainly made me ant more of Illamasqua lipsticks!
This lipstick retails for £18.50 and you can get it here
