This lipstick has been on my wish list for an extremely long time. I’ve had a couple of Illamasqua lipsticks in the past and wasn’t overly impressed, but this colour was too tempting. I’m disappointed. The colour is absolutely gorgeous which has saved me from giving it one star; unfortunately the texture is just too horrendous for me to give it anything higher. It tugs, pulls, and dries out your lips. I don’t know if mine is just a very bad batch because I have experienced that wish Illamasqua before, but I don’t have dry lips AT ALL, I even used a balm and blotted off before hand and had the same problem. My lips were flaking by the evening! I’d have to say, save your money and find a teal lip pencil/or make your own.

I would love to give this lipstick a higher rating because the colour is so amazing! But unfortunately the formula doesn't allow for even or easy application because it's so dry it pulls on the lips. If you can find a similar colour of eyeliner to use as a lip liner then the application will look a lot nicer, and you'll be able to achieve a good shape. Again, the colour is really something unique to find in a lipstick, and I am so happy I bought it because of that, but it's quite a pricey lipstick, and having seen many other matte finish lipsticks done with a smooth and easy to apply texture I am really disappointed that isn't the case with this one. I highly recommend it for people who don't have limits when it comes to colour, and especially for themed or costume looks. The packaging is nice, a simple black rectangular plastic bullet with the brand name down the side, which fits nicely into a standard size lipstick organiser.
