This is definitely one special lady! I don't have anything like her in my makeup collection so far which is always interesting since my makeup collection is very large. :)
Anja is a sky blue beauty who is extremely pigmented. I'm definitely impressed!
Bold and blood red - Sangers will definitely be part of my everyday makeup! 9 days out of 10 I wear red lipstick for work and this one will definitely be among them.
Pros: Glides on smoothly like a dream and doesn't feel dry on the lips despite the matte finish, stays on for a very long time
Cons: Honestly, I couldn't find any.
This lipstick is a tricky one. It is not very pigmented and the dry and thick texture makes it a nightmare to apply and no matter how carefully you work with your lip brush it will still be somewhat blotchy. My first thought - when I had abandoned any hope of a smooth result - was "Okay, this just isn't worth it!". Then I popped on a little lipgloss and voilá; gorgeous navy lips that aren't shrunken into nothingness! :D
Pros: Gorgeous and rare color
Cons: Not very pigmented, dry and extremely hard to apply
Flare has the classic dry Illamasqua texture that makes it stay on your lips through blistering ice storms and scorching deserts. It is nevertheless easy to apply and leaves your lips fiery hot.
Pros: Easy to apply, gorgeous color, long-lasting
Cons: Yellow teeth alert!

This is also so good you won't even believe your eyes when you try it. Just look at the picture and you'll understand what I'm talking about...
Also, if you're worried that it will smudge or disappear when you cry - don't be! This picture is taken after washing my skin twice; the first time with soap and water and the second time with waterproof makeup remover! Isn't that incredible? :O Yet, when you use it on your eyelids (which are oilier than the skin on your arm) it won't be difficult to remove it with waterproof makeup remover.
Have you ladies and gentlemen (do I have any male readers? It is hard to know sometimes from just a username of the people who comments!) got any favorite items from Illamasqua? Have you tried any of these and what did you think of them?
Thanks for stopping by! :)
