Illamasqua Matte Effect Lip Liquid* £18.50 in Exotic (vivid orange) and Surrender (warm peach)
available on counters and online

Is it a gloss? Is it a lipstick? No, it is the new matte lip liquid from Illamasqua and boy are they good! Coming in three exciting shades the matte lip liquid come with an innovative formula which allows easy precise application – letting it glide on like a gloss but within seconds drying to an intense finish with a strikingly vibrant colour. The shade is long lasting and completely water-resistant once on the lips and will literally last for hours, through tea breaks, warm walks to work and more. Literally no feathering, transfer or budging. It really did take some elbow grease and a lot of Bioderma to take the colour off at the end of the day!

The packaging is new and improved from Illamasqua’s previous lipgloss tube and doe-foot applicator. The 4ml gloss is housed in a chunky cylinder tube with a flexible brush applicator which makes it easy to fill your lips in precisely and build up the colour to an intense pop of colour. The texture is thick so a little goes a long way and you do have to work quite quickly before the lip liquid dries to a completely matte finish. I like wearing matte lipsticks so the feel on the lips was quite comfortable for me but if you are more of a lip gloss and balm kind of girl then the new matte effect lip liquid might take some getting use to. I think these are awesome, absolutely perfect for an easy, long-lasting lip option for the upcoming summer festivals and I am excited to perhaps treat myself to the third shade in this trio, Forbidden – a sensual, lavender pink colour.

Have you tried these new matte lip liquid from Illamasqua?

    What stunning colours – I'm getting more and more keen on the matte look. Wasn't sure of it at first but this post is a perfect demonstration of how good it can look! x

    Wow, these look beautiful! Usually I'd head straight for the orange toned red, but Surrender is seriously catching my eye!

    They're both such gorgeous shades, but this is the first positive review I've seen of these! Everyone seems to hate them! xx

    I've never tried Illamasqua. I don't even know where you buy it round our way but the packaging looks so good and I hear great things about it. Both these shades look so lovely on you
