ILLAMASQUA Liable lipstick is described as Orange Red with matte finish . It is fiery shade of Scarlet ( reddish orange ) with strong warm undertones with not so creamy texture. The lipstick is part of HUMAN Fundamentalism Collection and released along with beautiful bright Fuchsia Pink Lipstick Eurydice , I wanted the color so badly ever since I saw it on my friend Anamika …. from wiseshe and placing the order as soon as I get a code and some bucks to spend .
These are priced at £15.50 and considering my Bank charged me conversion rate of 88 /- INR this time , I am hoping , if not more it will certainly cost me 1370/- INR .
The lipstick has a matte finish and is very drying on lips if they are not well moisturized. I find the color good for my coloring but if you are little lighter then NC 40 you might want to use it as a stain not that you are not able to wear it with full force but that is just my opinion . It is hard to layer evenly as the texture is not super smooth like some of the other lipsticks I have from ILLAMASQUA , but no complaints if you want a orange red matte lipstick .
It stays for good 6 hrs on my lips and even after that the lips are stained pretty well , I do need a touch of lip balm to get rid of the dryness it gives . If you want to wear a different color lipstick the other day you need to scrub it well and again use a lip balm to smooth it down . It hides the pigmentation completely and gives coverage in one stroke .
If you love orange based red and long staying color do get this , I have 2 more shades from ILLAMASQUA to show you this week and they are WELT and SCANDAL … do wait for some more shades for your alter ego .
And this is how the color looks on my medium NC 40 skin tone :
I hope you find the review helpful ??
