Illamasqua Lipstick in Over - Review, Photos, Swatches

Illamasqua is a high-end makeup brand that offers a wide variety of beauty essentials for your alter ego. I've been reading great reviews about their products, particularly their lipsticks. So when the chance of ordering in Sephora came my way, I just had to grab it.I ordered 2 matte lipsticks from them. Here is the first one:

Illamasqua lipstick in Over is a matte coral-orange shade. It's not the kind of orange that's too bright. It's pretty long wearing, too.It's on cool toned side of orange though. It's a girly orange lipstick that's perfect for spring and summer. 

PROS: The color is fab, especially for spring and summer. It has a matte finish and long wearing. The packaging is also sleek and sophisticated.
CONS: A little too drying. The opacity needs work, especially for girls with pigmented lips. It's also expensive and not locally available in the Philippines.


  I will repurchase when I don't find something better.
