File under: cyberpunk school run, summer goth supermarket looks, deus ex augment chic, cyborg aesthetics.
I’m only being mildly facetious, of course. Life would be a hell of a lot more fun if all those Bladerunner-esque future aesthetic predictions ever came true and platinum gold lipstick became de rigueur, but until that JC Denton-infused zeitgeist happens, one can always turn to Illamasqua to scratch that futuristic itch.
Illamasqua Stranger Intense Lip Gloss is a golden platinum metallic gloss. It’s metallic. It’s super duper metallic. It’s a funk android powerhouse of shine that can stop traffic in full sunlight and leave a perfect lip print behind should one deign to kiss a humanoid on the cheek. Who needs practical when you’ve got the ultimate robot lip happening?
Illamasqua have made a few nods to day to day wearability recently – I see there’s a new line of nude lipsticks on the UK website, and I’m moderately interested in peeping the collection should it be released here as well – but it’s nice to know that when push comes to shove, when Mass Effect chic overrides Plain Jane practicality, when you need to unleash your inner android, you can always rely on Illamasqua to have just the ideal piece of electrofuture high art makeup.
