I love love love this lipstick. It’s my first Illamasqua product and has been a staple for my winter look. Minx is one of the darker nudes in the Glamour nude collection. It warms up my complexion especially when it’s winter dull. I’ve tried many nude lipsticks and the majority of them had washed me out and or accentuated the dry lips. The pigmentation is exceptional. One smooth swipe is all it needs without the need to build up the intensity.
The texture is creamy and moisturising leaving a slight shine at first but then will quickly wear off to a satin finish. After eating and drinking, there is colour still left on the lips, looking like a stain without a chalky look. It’s hands down one of the best lipsticks I’ve tried as I’ve only felt the need to top up once whenever I had fancied. I’ve worn this without a lip balm and chapped lips and due to it’s texture, the dry lips becomes unnoticeable. It’s comfortable and feels like I’m not wearing any lipsticks.
This is definitely an all year rounder and I will wear it in the upcoming Spring and Summer months. For £19.50, it’s worth it. I’ll need to check out the other lipsticks and products Illamasqua has in store for me. If you’re looking for a different nude lipstick, this would be the one, complimenting all skin tones.
Have you tried any Illamasqua lipsticks?
