I'm my Mother's daughter give me a bright pink lipstick and I am happy. Illamasqua's Immodest £16* is a blue based matte pink lipstick, which in the bullet looks neon but I was pleasantly surprised that on it is very wearable.My initial thoughts when I saw this lipstick was that it was going to be like Nicki Minaj’s viva glam lipstick, it looks lovely in the bullet but on it will wash me out but I think it did the opposite it really made my lips pop and instantly made me feel summery. Even though it is a bright pink this is a shade I would wear in the day more than night/clubbing which is when I usually wear bright lipsticks…. If I ever pluck up the courage to spend my evening with sweaty strangers in a club,(I’m not really a clubbing sort of gal’ haha). The packaging is lovely and sleek, I like that the packaging is a shiny texture I personally think it makes it seem luxurious.
One thing I will say is : you need to prep those lips girrl. Due to this being a matte finish and a bit dryer than the Mac Matte finishes it shows up every imperfection on your lips. I have recently got in the habit of applying lip balm about 3 times a day while I am at my desk and I have noticed a huge difference in my lips they are a lot less dry. I found if you apply a basic lipbalm I am using Nivea honey and milk at the moment then apply the lipstick straight away it actually applies very easily. This lasted on my lips for about 4 hours until I had to top up. I am very happy with my first dabble in the Illamasaqua lipstick world :).
What do you think of bright pinks? You brave enough to wear this in the day? I’m getting there slowly!
