- Fantastic pigmentation
- Very long wearing
- Does not dry out lips
- Feels dry upon application
This is one of the two lipsticks by Illamasqua that is part of their latest Toxic Nature collection, this one was kindly sent to me for this review.
The pigmentation on this is fantastic, bold, strong, it’s a real stand out shade. I would recommend using a lip brush for application if you are worried about messing up, something I recommend for all darker lipsticks with rich pigmentation. The finish is a semi-matte sheen, very unique and looks great in photographs.
I would suggest you wear a lip balm before applying this as the formula feels drying upon application, though strangely is not actually that drying once on the lips. If you are worried, top it off with a gloss.
One of the upsides to this formula, like the cream pigment is the grip this has to your lips is amazing. It really does last much longer than most lipsticks.
So tell me, have you tried anything from Illamasqua’s Toxic Nature collection?
