Illamasqua Disciple Lipstick
Illamasqua Art of Darkness: Disciple
Illamasqua Disciple Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a deep navy blue with a near matte finish. It’s pretty opaque, but it is a little dry, so it’s best applied with a lip brush. Between the opacity and the more clinging nature of the formula, though, it’s incredibly long-wearing–yielding about six hours of wear for me. Illamasqua’s lipsticks are also scent- and taste-free.
Most of probably wouldn’t wear this shade on the regular, but it’s always nice to have options, which is one of the fun parts about the Illamasqua brand. Disciple is surprisingly flattering even when worn on its own. Normally, I’m not a huge fan of really dark lip colors on myself, but I kind of dug the way the blue worked with my skin tone here. I also appreciate that it’s not a black-blue but a true navy blue on lips.
