Illamasqua Lament


I wore this last summer (and took a crappy iNOTD picture of it) but I have completely changed my mind after my initial, not-so-positive reaction. Initially I was a bit taken aback by the fact that it's more pink than coral. However, I popped it on my toes and ended up loving it so much that I left it on for six weeks before finally acknowledging that its time had come. It really is the perfect pedicure colour.






Anyway, I think my initial reactions were off in another respect. I described this as 'watermelon'. I have since decided that the exact pantone is in fact 'Dr Zoidberg'. It has that kind of creamy, lobster-y undertone but it's quite neon for an almost-pastel. I'm not very good at describing colours.



Coming up tomorrow is some more Illamasqua, including a rather exciting trip to the flagship store!

Gorgeous! Lol, it is indeed very "Dr. Zoidberg"! Looking forward to hearing more about your trip to the Illamasaqua flagship store. That's the one on/near Carnaby street, right? I went there when I was in last in London, and had a blast. Really nice people working there.
