Nearlyblack Lipsticks: Illamasqua, Moth
Hey there, Internet!
Today’s post is about one of Illamasqua‘s newer lipsticks, Moth. Moth if I am not mistaken in the beginning was released as limited edition but from the five lipsticks of this set (Moth, Shard, Resist, Born, Wanton) it seems only Resist still is limited edition. The lipstick is £22.50 for 4g / 0.14 OZ product and should be used within 12 months.

Official description from webshop: Let your lips speak volumes with Lipstick in Moth. Indulge in colour-intense lipstick with a highly pigmented formula, in a creamy matt finish. Illamasqua Lipstick glides on smoothly and doesn’t give up without a fight for the perfect all-night pout. A must have for professional make-up artists, and those who want to make a statement.
My thoughts: I guess I have a problem, as soon as I see some dark reddish brown lipstick of a cruelty free company you will find it in my shopping basket. This happened a lot with Moth until I finally bought it though. The packaging, both paper and plastic, this time are golden instead of the typical Illamasqua black. The lipstick itself has the typical, slightly sweet Illamasqua scent to it and applies really smooth on the skin and on the lips. It is highly pigmented and does not stick to your piercings. Finish as they said is matte and depending on the light it will look chocolate brownish or show some bloody red hint which I really liked. As I was expecting it lasted for hours, not even my coffee and salad could make it disappear. Really happy and probably one of my favourites for day and night.
Is there any product you find yourself not being able to resist, what would it be? Have a nice evening!
