Illamasqua Lipstick in Kontrol

Last week, I was very excited to have a parcel from Illamasqua waiting from me when I got home from Edinburgh. I had decided to make use of their special offer on lipstick and lipgloss if you order them as a pair. The lipstick I chose was kontrol, an awesome purple lipstick that's tones in with my hair, and the lipgloss I went for was violate which I'll be going into detail on in another post.

My family came over for my birthday the other night so I decided to try out kontrol, knowing that family are the only people you can really rely on to be brutally honest and tell you if you look like a freak because you're too old to be wearing purple lipstick. Anyway, at the end of it, I think I passed the sister test and the even the brother-in-law test and my little 3 year old niece seemed to love it!

I did my eyes in blue and green and decided to go full-on dolly-mode with pigtails and my new lace collar from New Look (£2.50 in the sale, reduced to £1.25 since it had a fault in it I had to sew. I'm turning into a bargain hunter like my dad). Hope you like the look!

    1. Thanks miss! That's totally what I was aiming for :) Morticia is normally my inspiration but sometimes it's cool to dress like her daughter!

  4. That is such a 'Goth' lipstick! It suits you perfectly, especially with matching eyes! I was wondering weather to get it during the Easter sale but decided it probably wouldn't look very nice on me, but you pull it off perfectly!

    Your birthday outfit reminds me of Wednesday Addams turned into a Goth biker chic! ♥

    1. "ednesday Addams turned into a Goth biker chick" - That's such an awesome compliment! Haha.

      Yeah, it's a risky colour. I think you could pull it off nicely with your long dark hair though x

  5. You look so pretty and the colour of the lipstick is perfect for you. It's is interesting how you achieved to turn your quite simple outfit to a more dressed up by the lovely combination of accessories.

    1. Thanks, miss! Yeah, it's just a black cotton dress and a black cardigan. Accesorising is always the fun part x

  6. I love that lipstick! I have it myself - a little while back I made a post where I'm wearing it. It really is a beautiful color and looks great on you. Unfortunately my folks seem to hate anything that looks "unnatural." ;)

    1. Thanks Lauren :) Aw that sucks that your folks don't like "unnatural" looks. Sometimes I feel like it's the rest of the world that hates the way I dress and only my friends and family that actually *like* it. But that's not a great feeling either so these days I try to say... "who cares!" :D x

    2. It'd be nice to have my parents not mind so much (or make rude comments), but I just shrug it off. My friends like it, as do other random people but in the end what matters is if I like it or not. :)
