Illamasqua Matte Effect Lip Liquid

As part of their new summer collection called Matte Effect Illamasqua have launched their new matte liquid lip glosses.

Each gloss is in a 4ml tube with a flexible plastic brush applicator. It comes in three colour options of Forbidden - a lavender pink, Exotic - a neon orange and Surrender .- a vibrant coral

Forbidden, Exotic, Surrender

The texture is thick so apply a small amount and build. This dries pretty quick and once dried off it is totally matte. The colour pigment in these is insane so if you want a vibrant matte lip then head over to Illamasqua.

The texture still feels comfortable although if you are used to a glossy finish it is going to take a bit of getting used to.
 Staying power is fab. These don't bleed out, feather or transfer. I would use a lip liner with it just to give a crisp edge.

We tested two of the colours in Exotic and Surrender.....

How gorgeous are these!!???
The glosses are £18.50 each and available now from

Illamasqua are also currently running an online selfie competition where you could win the entire collection from the Matte Effects summer launch.
 All you have to do to enter is take a selfie of you and your best friend who is also crazy about lip gloss. Post your picture on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook using  #illamasqua and #LipGloss and tag Illamasqua and your friends name in it too. They will then pick their favourite entries from that week. You must be following Illamasqua on the chosen platform of entry. You can enter more than once and with a different person in different pictures if desired.
 This competition runs until 3rd June 2014. Good luck!
