ASOS Beauty Haul - Illamasqua, Korres & Ciate ♥

Photobucket
Hi everyone! I've been quite a naughty girl lately- I've recently been hauling some products all because of the ongoing sales. I went through the sale section of the ASOS site and got a few things: Illamasqua sheer lipgloss in Torture, Korres lipstick in Coral and an ASOS Paint by Ciate duo set in Kate & Cheryl. As you can probably tell, I'm in a bit of an orange/coral kick lately! Keep on reading for my initial thoughts and swatches ♥

Illamasqua Torture is my first lip product from Illamasqua, and my second product from the line! (Illamasqua Dixie blush being my first one). It is a sheer coral colour. The consistency is semi-sticky but not as sticky as MAC lipglasses, and it is moderately sweetly scented. Illamasqua lip glosses in this range come in a thin squeezy tube that's pretty convenient for on the go. ♥

Korres lipstick in Coral was my second buy. It is a well-pigmented coral colour that glides on lips effortlessly. I think pigmentation and finish-wise, I think its a cross between MAC amplified cremes and lustre lipsticks - both of which I adore! And oh, it also has SPF10, which is a good thing.

I also purchased an Asos Paint by Ciate duo set with the nail varnish shades in Kate and Cheryl. Out of all the shades available, I was attracted to Kate (medium grey colour) and Cheryl (bright coral) the most, and I was happy to see them in a set! These are my first nail polishes from Ciate. I have been hearing good thoughts about Ciate nail varnishes from the other blogs, and I must say I have good thoughts on them as well! I love the consistency - not too sticky, a bit on the runny side, but they are so pigmented on the first swipe. They are very easy to apply! I have not worn them long enough to describe the wear on these, so I might share my thoughts on that in a later post. But I love these ♥

Please forgive the messy application! 

I hope this post was useful! Have you tried any of these products? ♥
