Ilia Beauty makes great colours when it comes to lipsticks and it has just launched the fall 2016 collection. I will review The Brides, a super wearable dusty pink with a warm undertone. It is a limited edition and the name is inspired by Dracula’s movies.


PERFORMANCE: the lipstick goes on effortlessly and it is in a bullet (so no fingers or lip brushes required). The colour is super wearable, just the perfect mix of dusty pink with brown that is easy to wear, whether in the office or during the weekend. If you have a darker skin tone it works also as a nude. The finish is semi matte, very classy.

The texture is comfortable, the colours does not streak. My problem with Ilia is the scent: unfortunately the scent of this lipstick is very prominent. If you dont have issues with scents this would be a great pick, otherwise go for scent free lipsticks.

SCENT: very prominent, especially in summer.


HOW TO USE IT: it can be used directly from the bullet. The texture is creamy and comfortable. It can be applied with a lip brush adding also a coulee of layers or, if you want a super natural look, with fingers as a stain (in this case you want to top it up with some lip balm).

I purchased the product with my money. It was NOT sent by PR and I did not receive any money to post this review.
