Beauty | Illamasqua Matte Lip Liquid.


When the words ‘Illamasqua’ and ‘matte’ come together in one sentence or product name, chances are that I’m going to get my hands on it. And that is exactly what happened when I ventured to London and visited the amazing Beak Street store. I picked up a couple of pieces from the Summer collection; one of which being ‘Matte Veil’ and the other the ‘Matte Lip Liquid’ which I’ll be showing you lovelies now.

I just had to check out the Matte Lip Liquid; it seemed to good to be true. A product that glides on like a liquid and dries matte? I was beyond intrigued. I opted for the shade ‘Forbidden’ which is a gorgeous candy pink, and I am pleased to report that I am 100% in love. The colour is so wearable and the product applies like a dream. I’ve worn it for 8 – 10 hour shifts and the transfer-resistant colour hasn’t bled at all! I find myself reapplying mid-day and that’s all that’s needed. After being such a lover of Illamasqua’s lipsticks I wondered would I love this as much - but I definitely do. And you all know I don’t say those words lightly. My only comment is that is can feel slightly tacky if you apply too much, a light layer is sufficient for full coverage and stay-in-place colour.

If you can’t already tell I am crazy about this product and wear it at any given opportunity. Now I’m just patiently waiting for them to release it in a whole rainbow of colours so I can own them all! Would you consider trying the Illamasqua Matte Lip Liquid? xo
