Illamasqua Midnight Bite Duo

Guess what I had under the christmas tree? I put there a little gift for myself:

This cute little set from Illamasqua contains two full size products - a gloss and a lipstick. I bought it on ASOS for 9.5 pounds! Yes, just for this little and I am always happy to get such a deal. Sadly this product is already out of stock.

First is the lipstick in Sangers which is a true red. It is not blue, not orange, it is just perfect. It matches my skin tone perfectly and I finally found a red lipstick I feel good in. Illamasqua lipsticks are not very creamy, but I don´t mind because that makes them stay on longer and that is what is most important for me. I already had this on for a dinner and it lasted very well!

Since the lipstick is matte you can add a clear gloss to make your lips look even better. That is the reason why Illamasqua Sheer Lipgloss in Brilliant is also a part of the set. The gloss has a very nice scent, not too strong and also stays for a long time. It is not very watery, rather on the thick side.

And here are the swatches. On the left is Sangers alone and on the right it is with a small amount of Brilliant. 

How do you like this set and the price I bought it for? Did you find any Illamasqua under the christmas tree? Would love to know!


  1. The color is so beautiful, but with the gloss it just makes it POP! It's incredibly gorgeous, a wonderful buy for yourself!

  2. Wow, that looks amazing with the gloss!

  3. I would like to get something from Illamasqua but I think I need to earn more money ;)

  4. Oooh I love the look of the gloss on top of it :-)

  5. Absolutely gorgeous! It's so hard to find a perfect, true red lipstick. Orange based reds look awful against my skin tone and blue based reds can look magenta if they aren't balanced. Sangers looks perfect! The sale price is amazing! :)

  6. Haha - like you, I was also one of the clever people to snap up this deal when I saw it on ASOS! ;)
