Illmasqua Summer 2014: Velvet Blush & Matte Lip Liquid


Illamasqua's Summer 2014 Collection looks absolutely divine. The imagery is stunning and the new products come in very Summer appropriate colours. The new additions include 3 Matte Lip Liquids, 3 Velvet Blushers, Matte Veil and a Matte Top Coat for nails. I was kindly sent two products to try out: Surrender Matte Lip Liquid and Sleek Velvet Blush. They are both beautiful!


Illamasqua Velvet Blusher in Sleek* (£21.50)
The texture of this matte blusher is very soft and it transforms from a cream to a powder, adding a natural looking flush of colour to the cheeks. The formula is easy to blend and I like applying it with my fingers or a stippling brush. The finish is completely matte and the colour is long lasting, providing 8-12 hours of wear. Sleek is a peachy orange shade and it goes perfectly with the Surrender Lip Liquid.

Illamasqua Matte Lip Liquid in Surrender* (£18.50)
The lip liquid is a dream to apply and it comes with a very precise applicator. The pigmentation of this product is insane and one thin coat gives opaque coverage and a matte finish, without accentuating dry patches on the lips. I like wearing it on it's own, or with a gloss on top. It looks stunning both ways. Surrender is a true warm peach shade and it lasts on the lips for 4-6 hours.

    1. If my lips are already dry/chapped - yes, it feels a bit drying after a while, but doesn't accentuate the dryness or any dry patches (on me anyway). If my lips are in good condition and I use Nuxe Reve De Miel before applying the product - it feels very comfortable and doesn't leave my lips feeling dry at all. x
