19/11/14: Ilia Beauty Giveaway!


Ilia Beauty is a luxury green beauty brand, founded in 2011 (!) by Sasha Plasvic with just six lip conditioners that came into being after she had dreamt up and created the sleek silver gold packaging that features so heavily in green beauty lustings across the continents.  Just three years later the line now extends to almost forty lip colours, several face multi sticks, mascara and the also recently launched tinted moisturiser and concealer. 

About two weeks ago I was able to get my hands on some samples of the new Ilia Beauty colours via the excellent Amazingy sample service.  If you read my quick swatch post then you'll know that I was immediately taken with Strike It Up, the new cool toned red lipstick and planned to purchase it.   I was aware that as a lipstick it would be drier than the Shell Shock Conditioner in my collection, but as I love the colour so much I was willing to give it a go.  

I'm a little bit obsessed with their existing lip colours and have a wishlist as long as my arm for various Blossoms, Karmas and Bang Bangs, but I delayed all of those purchases to get my hands on this beautiful red.  I think it will suit a variety of skin tones, hair colours and personalities - I'm not a glamourpuss by any means but I think it will be perfect for a pop of colour during the winter months and I'm very happy to have it in my collection as my first "grown up" lipstick!   

The good news is that not only do I still love it in the full size but (as I not so subtly hinted on Twitter) I bought an extra one to share the love with you!  I was going to wait to review this fully before sharing, but I just couldn't wait! So, the highlights:

- High organic content
- No carmine
- Creamy formula
- Thick pigmentation
- Drier lips may require a bit of balm
- Standard red lipstick advice - exfoliate!
- Worth £22

For your chance to win a full size Ilia Beauty Lipstick in the gorgeous red shade Strike It Up, just fill out the Rafflecopter below.  Every option is worth a point, and the winner will be picked at random using their program.   I've tried to cover various platforms so that even if you don't use Facebook/Twitter there's an option for you.

I'm also really happy to say - this is open internationally!  

Good luck!

(PS 1. Hopefully it's obvious, but the one pictured above is mine, yours will be completely wrapped and sealed as it was bought. :) and 2. The lip swatches are the most accurate, the hand swatch is reading a bit brighter than in real life.)

  23. Hi Hephzibah! I've switched pretty much all of my skincare and make-up to more natural alternatives - lipstick is one of the last on the list. This would be a great start :)
