Today is ANOTHER Illamasqua review, this time on their black lipstick called Pristine.
Hope you enjoy. xoxo
This is NOTHING like the dire black lipsticks that come out around Halloween.
It is very different from the oily, weak black lipsticks most of us know. It is pure opaque, matte black! You can get full opaque colour in about two swipes which is incredible!
I would certainly recommend using a good lip balm and scrub before using it as it can be a bit drying as it is a matte shade.
I know a lot of people go “Oh no I can’t wear that!” When they see black lipstick, however it is surprisingly wearable and also looks amazing on those who aren’t Gothic in dress sense.
There are so many possibilities with this! Teaming it with a dark blue based red (Like MAC’s RiRiWoo) for a vampy ombre lip. Or for an ultra slick and evil Goth lip applying Illamasqua’s sheer lipgloss in Viloate (dark, shimmery ivy green) over the top!
