Ahhh how I love Illamasqua. In my book, they can’t do anything wrong, to me, they are the perfect make up brand: creative, professional, colourful and brave. You’ve seen my favourite item from the Imperfection collection already in my review of the fabulous new Blush Up Brush and Illamasqua Blusher Duo.

If you’re into matte lipsticks, you’ve got to check out the selection from Illamasqua as they really are excellent. You always get super long lasting colour, bright shades and super matte finishes. I always tend to prefer matte lipstick, I find them low maintenance and love the vintage vibe you get with them.

Here’s their latest offering, Immodest…

A truly candy pink, channelling the 80s in a super matte formula you’ve got to be a bold lady to wear this shade at first glance. It’s so bright! However, as with most Illamasqua lipsticks the colour is buildable so you can apply in layers to achieve the intensity that you want.

Mix this colour with a little lip balm for a subtle rosy pink or apply with precision with brush for a solid matt colour. I’d really like to try this with a sheer coloured gloss over the top too, there’s some stunning iridescent shades in Inglot that I’m going to have to pick up.

Here it is, Illamasqua Immodest Lipstick swatched on my lips along with a whole bunch of other lovely Illamasqua products, including the speckled eyeliner that I featured previously…

Not as terrifying a shade as it looks at first glance right? It reminds me of Lime Crime’s Countessa Fluorescent but a matte version, I think this shade suits me better, it’s slightly warmer and I think I’m going to get on better with the matte finish. I reckon this shade is going to be flattering on a lot of different skin tones and make up styles, I’m sure it’ll be a hit!

What do you think of this shade?

What is your favourite Illamasqua product?

Illamasqua Imperfection SS13 Immodest Matte Lipstick Review

  1. Oh my…this looks so fab, it is tempting. I wrote about my search for the perfect pink lipstick a while ago, this doesn’t make your teeth look too yellow does it? Don’t laugh, it is a serious concern of mine!

    1. Thanks! It’s the speckled eyeliner look also from Illamasqua, I did a post on it previously and hope to do a video on it very soon. Super easy and effective.
