Illamasqua Lipstick in Corrupt

The yontif lipstick method of layering on various brands and colors results in this lovely pink shade, which kind of makes my other weekday lipsticks look a little bland. And quite by accident I have found a single product that looks not only close to that hue, but better. 

I adore Illamasqua since the majority of their products are vivid, matte pigments. Idly playing with the lipsticks in Sephora one day I swiped one on. 

Oooh.

The Sephora website describes "Corrupt" as hot pink, but it is not. Believe me, I have hot pink lipsticks; this is not hot pink. 

The Illamsqua website refers to it as a warm bright pink, which is definitely a better description. While light, it is dramatic yet remaining refined.

The consistency of Illamasqua lipstick can be temperamental, however. While they are matte, if left in too warm an area they begin to get testy. Don't leave it in a purse on a sunny summer day.
