Illamasqua Magnetism Lipstick: Review and Swatches

Illamasqua Magnetism Lipstick: Review and Swatches

I first came across Illamasqua Magnetism lipstick when it was released with the Generation Q collection (great review on Anatomy of Beauty). At the time I wanted to pick it up, but was on a makeup no-buy so I held off purchasing this- until ASOS had a 25% off everything sale at the end of last year.

Magnetism is a cool toned deep mauvish berry  (somewhere between raspberry and grape) with full opacity. It has a creamy, slippery texture with a glossy sheen- which is quite different from the super mattes that form the vast majority of the illamasqua lipstick collection. Staying power is great for a creamy lipstick (around 3.5hrs on my lips), but not quite as long as their matte formula lipsticks (around 5hrs) keeping in mind that lipsticks generally don’t last long on me.
