Illamasqua lipstick drench makeup review Pros & Cons

Illamasqua lipstick drench makeup review,pros are that everything that I have used from Illamasqua has this gentle and very pleasant smell, even the lipstick. The powders have a very soft floral and powder smell that is so pleasant that I wish it were a perfume to be honest. The lipstick also has a similar smell. The texture of the lipstick is soft that it is easy to manipulate, control and apply on the lips. Another thing in this makeup review of illamasqua lipstick drench, is that the lipstick is very pigmented and I can compare it wish the Graftobian HD lipsticks. Drench, unlike the Graftobian lipsticks, last a very long time on the lips even without using a lip liner. I usually apply either Illamasqua’s lip liners or NYX’s, and when I used Drench over it, I ate and drunk that night, the lipstick did wear a bit but not even as close as other lipsticks. This completes the pros and cons of the makeup review of Illamasqua lipstick in Drench.

    They’ve discontinued Drench, drat it!
    Does anyone know of a dupe?
    Illamasqua Salacious is *somewhat* similar, but is more muted. I love Drench’s brightness!
    Why do all of the really great lipsticks seem to get axed? 🙁
