#ProjectLipstick30 Day 2 - Illamasqua Obey

Monday, September 02, 2013

Once again today was spent re-decorating all on my lonesome (can see this being a long process) & having a clear out and sort out of my room - yes multi-tasking. Therefore, it was a clear face day with speckles of paint that laid on the face like freckles but I didn't want to cop out on the second day, that would be weak so...I hope you don't mind the follow swatch of this Illamasqua matt lippie.

I've worn this once before, forgot how bloody loud and peachy pink it is. I purchased it on various swatches, the pain of having no store to swatch so I thought based on the swatches it would be a bit more milder in colour but - wrong, wrong! It's a matt finish and quite drying. It can drag along the lips during application but it might look good with a lipgloss, think I'll try that otherwise I may just have to sell up.

Obey or disobey?

    1. Oh really, I think I will try it with a lip gloss or mixed with another colour but now I remembered why it was thrown in the back of the drawer *sighs* just so loud against my skin tone. xo

  4. I recommend bare minerals range lipstick in Jude, it's creamy texture and doesn't dry your lips all day long, one of my favourites

  9. Bloody hell, it looks drying, doesn't it?

    I think the colour does flatter your skin tone but some gloss over that would make this perfect!

    P.S - The colour looks strikingly similar to 147 by Barry M (I think?) which is just as drying!

  10. This actually reminds me of their Androgen Pigment, which is something I adore but it is HELLA LOUD on the lips. I only ware it sparingly, and even then it's super drying. I don't know if this is an Illamasqua thing or if it's just the type of pigment that makes it so? xo
