I'm a massive fan of Illamasqua and I love a nude lip so when I saw this lipstick. I knew I had to have it. Sonnet is a cool peachy nude with a matte finish. It's the first light matte nude I own.
The colour is really pretty yet it is quite hard to pull off, due to the finish. I wish it was slightly less matte, as I love the shade yet think it would be alot more flattering in a different formula. The plus side to having such a matte finish is the durablity this is one of the longest wearing lipsticks I own. It lasts a good 5 hours without the need for touch ups and is super pigmented with just one swipe.
This is my first Illamasqua lipstick and it hasn't put me off, I will just make sure I stay clear of the matte finish. This finish really isn't for me, I already struggle with fine lines on my lips. This just didn't do me any favours and made them stand out even more. The next Illamasqua lipstick I buy will be a satin finish! Fingers crossed I will get on alot better with it as I love the shades Illamasqua produce.
Lots of Love,
