Illamasqua Matte Lipstick in Liable

Holy Moly!  I never thought I could find a red matte lipstick that would be suitable for me.  I now present to you the Illamasqua Matte Lipstick in Liable.

This lipstick is a matte red lipstick with (personally) a neutral undertone.  The product itself is not very moisturising and can be quite hard to apply as it drags quite a bit.  This can be quite inconvenient for someone like me who is on acne medication and has sensitive and very dry lips.  However, I’m willing to let that all slide as this lipstick has great pigmentation, reasonably long wear and it looks really great on my lips.  As with all lipsticks (or products in general), this one clings on to the dry parts of lips and stands out for all to see.  The lipstick can be quite stubborn to remove from the lips.

Without further a-do.. picture time!

Conclusion:

Although the lipstick is not very moisturizing, it is not very drying either.  Application has quite a bit of tug and pull.  However, the colour payoff is excellent, giving an excellent shade of red.  This lipstick is also really affordable!

Price:

£16.50 (online) or AUD$25.00 (stores)

Where to buy:

Illamasqua Medium Pencil in S.O.P.H.I.E Black

I have been looking for an excellent Pencil eyeliner that is smudgeproof, budge-proof and waterproof.  So, when Illamasqua had a sale, I jumped at buying myself their Medium Pencil in S.O.P.H.I.E, which is a black colour.

This pencil can be used on the body, face, lips and eye. Yay! Who does not love an all-in-one product?  I used this on my eyes as an eyeliner.  The pencil is extremely creamy and black.  It applies like a dream: so smooth and no snags.  Is it the blackest of black?  No, not really.  However, this is great for defining the eye without having a harsh line.  The eyeliner did not last on my eyes, even with an eye primer.  Within a few hours, the eyeliner was smudging on to the bottom of my eyelids!!  I’ve heard rave reviews about this pencil but I’m not feeling it.  Maybe I’m not using it right????
