Illamasqua Glamore Lipstick in Cherub Review

I was excited to see the addition of nude shades to the Glamore collection, their range of satin lipsticks. Before the Glamore collection was launched earlier this year their lipstick range was all matte, which are amazingly fantastic but it's nice to have something softer. Having fell in love with Glissade from their initial release I was excited to pick up a more natural shade to take me into winter.

Using their nude shade selector, very handy when you're greedy like me as it minimises your options, I decided to go with cherub, a warm coral shade. Although it's a very light shade the lipstick isn't sheen so this colour is strong which is perfect. Sheen lipsticks are nice but wanting to wear a light shade doesn't necessarily mean you don't want to stand out.

It smells delicious (silly thing to observe for a lipstick but it counts), sits perfectly on the lips as it feels soft and moisturising. Colour remains on the lips even after blotting, I do find I need to retouch more than darker shades but I've found this with most light shades.

It's a beautiful natural shade that works perfectly year round, it's strong enough to work on its own but also works well with heavy eye make-up, a perfect all rounder. 


  1. This is such a beautiful shade. Nice review.
