Illamasqua Immodest Lipstick

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!

  1. I love the colour of this lipstick and it really suits your skintone :) I'm always scared to try bright pinks like my MAC chatterbox as it does make me look a bit pale but with a hint of bronzer it looks great. Loving the new quality of your photographs too hope you're getting on alright with your new camera :)

  3. It looks gorgeous on you!! I find my Barry M Hot Pink one the same, you need to load on the lipbalm first. I don't know if I'd be brave enough to wear it as an everyday lippie though :) x

  4. This is beautiful! I just purchased Eurydice from Illamasqua, and agree with you about the formula. I have to apply a lip balm under neath because it's an entirely different world of matte...but they stay on FOREVER! xx

  13. This looks really nice on you~ and i can see how it can be compared with the new Nicki Minaj viva glam lipstick because it looks so similar. I haven't tried illamasqua lip products yet as i have been overwhelmed by their blushers and other products hehe. I personally cannot stand matte lipsticks because my lips are always so dry regardless of always applying lipbalm~ I prefer more balmy sheer finishes instead because i think im too lazy when it comes to wearing a bold lip.

    Thanks for sharing and i just discovered your blog, it looks great ^^
    Have a lovely day <3

  15. Such a gorgeous colour! Looks fab on you - I'm never brave enough to try really bright lips, but then I normally go for bolder eyes than lips anyway!

    Thanks for commenting and following! LOVE your blog so I'm following back :D

  20. Ahhh this looks SO perfect on you! I love matte lippies but my lips shrivel up like mad haha! I might have to take up that idea of applying lip balm multiple times a day as I really love the matte finish!
