Overall Opinion:

I have loved every single Illamasqua lip products so far, but this was a huge disappointment. Too dry and hard to blend, I seriously spent somewhere about 15 minutes to get it on my lips, so I could take the swatch pic.
Color is awesome, but texture isn’t.  Good thing is that this may not be for everyday use ;D So if you’re a makeup artist, and you have a fantasy ohotoshoot coming, you may want to add this to your list, even though it’s hard to work with.

How ever, if you mix it with lipgloss, it get’s a new life completely! I tried using it with Gosh’s black lipgloss, and I loved the result.

MUG Seal of Approval:  ( 3 out of 5)
