Illamasqua Matte Lip Liquid in Exotic

Last week when I opened the envelope I actually squealed at how beautiful this colour is. It’s part of the new Illamasqua Summer 2014 collection which is made up of 3 Matte Lip Liquids and 4 Velvet Blushers.

I’ve seen a lot of new liquid lipsticks pop-up on the market but this one has to be the most vibrant and exciting colour. They have an intense colour, highly pigmented and long lasting that said the first application was a real struggle.

It comes with an actually really nice brush so it is very tempting to apply straight onto the lips however I found this product to simply be too heavy for that and I was left with too much product on my lips which was not only uncomfortable but didn’t look great either.

Since the colour is so beautiful I carried on trying and discovered that this product work better dabbed into the lip. As it is such a pigmented product you still get a very vibrant colour that is wearable. It also last really well even through drinking and eating although as most matte products do it has a tendency to cling to some dry patches. Exotic is also a beautiful orange colour which I would highly recommend for summer.

Have you tried any liquid lipstick and if so which are your favourite?

    That colour looks so good on you. I've had a few really bright matte lip products that I've always thought looked awful but just today I decided that they must look good somehow and like this product, they were best when dabbed on the lips. It has solved my bright lipstick phobia.
