As many of you remember, I did some major beauty binge-ing with Illamasqua at the start of the summer. One of the products I ordered was a lipstick called Fable, a pretty matte bubblegum pink. I picked it based on the swatch online as I was looking for a pretty light pink for the summer. When I got it though, it wasn’t the colour I expected it to be. The colour is very pigmented and milky. I thought it would be a softer pink.
It’s pretty enough, but I’m not convinced it suits my NC35/37 skintone. On me, it is too blue-based and pale so it looks ‘off’ on my face. Below, I show a ‘sad’ me. LOL.
But I want to make this lipstick work as I do love the quality of the Illamasqua lipsticks.
So, I’ve selected this lipstick to be the next lippie to be featured in my “1 Product, 5 Looks” Challenge.
Stay tuned for the results next week.
On another note, I encourage you to visit Stefanie at the Lip Print who has taken up this challenge as well. Stefanie has been posting different looks you can do with red lipstick. Very cool!
