Feel like I haven't done any reviews for ages so today I come with a big set of lipstick for lipstick lover from Illamasqua! The perfect pout gift set is a limited edition set of 6 matte lipsticks. This set was released just before Christmas last year. And I'm lucky enough to get it as a Christmas gift from my boyfriend (actually...I kept moaning until he bought it for me hehehe. This trick always work with him). If you buy the lipstick separately the rrp is £16.50 each but you can grab the set for only £60 and saving £39.

The set includes:
❤ Plunge (bright mauve pink)
Plunge is a baby cool tone pink. It's a nice colour but I don't think I can wear it in everyday life. I love to wear it for a night out or for a date. Unfortunately I've owned this colour since 2 years ago and still can't manage to use it up. So this one I have to keep as a spare one in the back of my drawer
❤ Fable (bright rose pink)
I have been wanted this colour for ages. I think it's a nice rose pink colour which I can use it everyday.
❤ Scandal (warm coral pink)
Scandal is highly pigmented lipstick just only one swipe and then here you go. It is a warm pink shade with orangy undertone. It's perfect for someone who want to wear red but still want to be in a comfort zone
❤ Over (bright coral pink)
Over is a nice coral orange colour. I love that it isn't too light as most corals can be.
❤ Isis exclusive to this set (red pink)
Isis is very similar to a colour Illamasqua discontinued called 'Drench'. In my opinion I think it also quite similar to Scandal but redder if that make any sense. Sorry that the picture above make it look too orange!
❤ ESP (vivid violet)
ESP is a gorgeous purple colour. It is a vibrant purple with blue undertone. If you dare you need to try and I'm sure you can rock it.
For anyone who has never own any Illamasqua lipstick should be aware that most of the lipsticks from this brand are really matte. Comparing with Mac matte lipstick I think Illamasqua is more intense matte. So make sure that your lips are smooth before apply. Although all lipsticks contain vitamin E but lip balm might be essential for some of you who have chapped lip. For me I like the colour, how pigmented and long lasting the lipsticks can give. Some time I also apply a lipgloss on top to make my lips look more moisturised and dewy :)
