I do love a good lipstick launch! For 2017 Illamasqua have launched the gorgeous semi matte lipsticks in 16 shades from nudes to pinks and deep red tones.
Of course I love the packaging, Illamasqua’s signature black case which is elegant, trendy and sassy all at the same time.
Illamasqua are known for their rich pigments and fabulous colour pay off and these lipsticks are no different. In just one swipe you get such good colour pay off that really lasts. The application is smooth and creamy, the lipstick feels so nice to put on your lips.
I always rave about matte lipsticks because I find they last longer but the Illamasqua Antimatter Lipsticks have a creamy texture when you apply and look creamy but set matte so they still last so well. They do not dry out your lips at all due to the creamy texture. So if you love matte lipstick you will love these but equally if you don’t like matte lipsticks and prefer a creamy texture than you will still love these.
I have the shades Cosmic and Midnight, as you can see Cosmic is my kinda shade. It is the perfect pinky nude that I wear everyday and it will suit most skin tones. Midnight is a rose red, it has a slightly more pink undertone than a pillar box red. I think this is such a pretty shade and it is a shade I have been searching for, for a while now.
As a lipstick lover these Illamasqua Antimatter Lipsticks have definitely ticked the box for me, they are £20 and you get take a look at the other gorgeous shades here.
