Illamasqua Kontrol Lipstick Review and Swatches
Illamasqua is a brand about drama, "Make up for your alter ego". If you have been following my blog you would know i have a bit of a love affair with purple lipstick. It is no surprise that when i heard of this color i had to get my hands on it immediately. Kontrol by Illamasqua is a blue based, matte, purple lipstick. It glides on soft and is not terribly drying. Since it is a matte it does sit drier on the lips than a satin or a creme but the color payoff is phenomenal. True to the tube color that applys opaque and stays put for 5 hours. The sleek black square tube and price point of about $16 dollars the quality and price range are on point with other mid/high level brands of lipstick.
Overall if you are looking for a rich purple shade that will never be mistaken for anything other than purple, this is a safe bet. Since it does lean blue it is not exactly a safe for work shade and will bring a lot of attention to the lips. If you like the drama of a statement lip, or just love purple you can pick it up here!
