Illamasqua Lipstick in Corrupt: Review

I got this lipstick ages ago now, it was a Christmas present from my family! One of the things I love more than anything is bright lipsticks. I have a selection in my stash from pink, orange, red, purple, and most things in-between. I really adore bright, shocking colours, and this lives up to that reputation.
Illamasqua Lipstick, Corrupt, £15.50 
There's another picture of me wearing it here, just after Christmas (looking at that post makes me miss all my big comfy Winter jumpers!) I got it from the Illamasqua store just off Carnaby Street in London and the girls there was so lovely. Sat with me whilst I uhmed and aahed over various shades before I decided on this one! She also showed me how to blend it with a blue eyeliner to get a really interesting shade of purple, which I've attempted! Here's a closeup;
It's a really lovely lipstick, and has a beautiful matte finish. The only problem with that is it's quite a drying lipstick, so you need to make sure you have super moisturised, free from cracks or flakes, and I recommend not wearing it for that long a time, because when it starts drying out, you can tell. But then, that is an issue with all brightly coloured lipsticks, and |'m used to it, so it doesn't bother me that much anymore. The only real issue I have with it is that their lipsticks are a funny shape, which isn't really that useful when you're trying to apply them. 
They cost £15.50, which | think is a little on the pricey side, but it's a beautiful colour that I'm willing to pay the extra for! I'd be more comfortable with a £10-12 tag, though. At least we're not talking Rouge Volupte here! The packaging is nice, I like a more square tube, actually, like Nars lipsticks. 
Price: 4/5 
Packaging: 5/5 
Colour: 5/5 
Texture: 3/5 
Would I buy this product again?: Definitely. I have my eye on that navy blue lipstick that they do..

Tiger's are my spirit animal..

Quick outfit post for you today! I went to Longleat at Easter with some friends because I had a sneaky discount and we wanted a little Easter break. It was quite nice, wandered around Bath a bit, had a lovely time. And I bought an amazing shirt. For five english pounds. I couldn't believe my luck. I bought it super big so I could wear it like a dress, and I do.
I don't look myself in these pictures, I'm not sure why that is, haha. I look a bit like a demon. Sorry for the awful lighting! I tried editing them a bit, but I just looked more and more strange! Here's the graphic on the shirt;
You can't really see but theres a black leopard under my hair! Snow Leopards and and Tigers are my ABSOLUTE favourite (hence, my blog title!) so I was in love. I've been wearing it with my Primark boots, but now it's getting warmer again, I may have to put these away. We shall see! Hope you en joy my silly taste in clothes..!
