The Search for the Perfect Red: Illamasqua Box Matte Lipstick

Affilier Acheté

On my continuing quest to find the perfect red,* I decided it was high time I hit the Illamasqua counter. They have an amazing array of colors in their lipstick line, and I had read about Maneater and Sangers, in particular.

(*I’m starting to think there’s no such thing, but more on that a different time.)

Color me surprised that I wound up walking out with a shade I hadn’t even heard of. Box, described as a deep, scarlet red, was actually created by Illamasqua’s creative director, Alex Box, as her signature red lipstick. So it looked like I was in good company!

To the video tape! I mean photos…

I Caved (or, A Phillip Lim for Target Tale of Shame)

Just a quickie to show you my outfit today. Featuring the BOOM Sweatshirt by Phillip Lim for Target. Because I couldn’t help but succumb to a few pieces, despite not having a job. (Can you blame me, though?!) I staked out the Target site last Saturday night at midnight EST and stayed up until all the pieces I wanted were listed. And yet I still managed to miss the Yellow Mini Satchel. (Sad face 🙁 )

(Hmm. those boots look familiar…)

The other things I picked up were the Floral Shirtdress and the Black Faux Leather Dress. (I also have the Navy/Black Faux Leather dress, which I ADORE, that front zipper is so sexy, but it’s one size too small. I mean, it fits, but just, and I’m afraid I’ll always feel self-conscious, and I can’t rationalize keeping it. Despite.)

Did any of you pick up any of the collection? What did you think?
