If you remember my tiny Illamasqua haul, one of my half-priced purchases was this Illamasqua Lipstick in Scandal. The swatch on the website is very misleading; however, as it describes the shade is a beautiful ‘warm coral pink’. It is a pigmented matte finish. I picked this one because after reading different reviews I found it less drying than other mattes. And I was right! Oh boy, the finish is amazing, matte yet creamy, gliding smoothly, very pigmented and giving full coverage. It does not appear as patchy as absolute matte finishes do.
I can’t tell you how stunning this colour is, I just can’t get over its amazing colour payoff and lasting power of 8 hours without eating or drinking. If you have very dry lips, apply it over a lip balm but definitely, definitely give this baby a try.
Scandal brightens my whole complexion. It is one of those shades which makes people stop to ask its name. I have fallen head over heels in love with this shade. And imagine my joy that I got this beauty for only 10 EUR. Teehee.
