Illamasqua Lipstick Swatches

I have never owned a single item from Illamasqua but a sweet friend of mine, LeeLeeBell, from MakeupAlley LOVES their lipstick line.  She recently posted the swatches of her favorites so I wanted to share them with you.
Information from the brand:
“Let your lips speak volumes with this color-intense lipstick. Indulge in this highly pigmented formula that’s available in a choice of flawless finishes from matte to glossy. Illamasqua Lipstick glides on smoothly for the perfect pout that stays put all night.”
 
What LeeLeeBell says:
“They are the smoothest, most long lasting mattes I own; honestly they are the best stains too. They last as long on my lips than most stains. They combine beautifully with Revlon Lip Butters too btw, if you’re into adding some gloss to your mattes without gooping up the texture…

If I had to answer: The ones that are my least favorite of the bunch (because they are not as smooth) are Diablo and Fable. In general, the reds are my favorite. And Atomic :-D”
 
L-R: Diablo, Sangers, Drench (LeeLeeBell’s HG red), Maneater, Salacious, Atomic, Welt, Brink, Scandal, Fable
L-R: Diablo, Sangers, Drench (HG red), Maneater

I hope these swatches helped you chose a perfect color for yoruself.  Thanks for looking!  If you have something from the brand and love it, tell me below!  I feel like I need to pick something up!!! :)

      I haven’t seen these in person either. They aren’t sold in any of my local stores. I adore the swatches though. Makes me want to try them. I am a total texture person so I want to see them in person first.

    Illamasqua has replaced MAC as my Lipstick Supplier of Choice.
    Yes, Illamasqua’s lipsticks are on the dry side, but I keep my lips in good shape, and I find Illamasqua’s lipsticks quite wearable, with a bit of balm underneath.
    And I LOOOVE the bold colors!
    So far, I own Salacious, Box, Magnetism, Atomic, and Shard. I’ve got Drench coming, and I’m sorely tempted by Glissade.
    This bright lip thing is ME! :)
