Not impressed, it's pricey and does not match up to the picture colour on advert. Also doesn't last long! Definitely won't be buying again.

esp lipstick
please dear god don't discontinue this lipstick I love it so much now and ,its pretty much the perfect purple lipstick and its hard to find the right purple

30 August 2015

Perfect Purple
I've always coveted Illamasqua lipsticks, however, this one, I just HAD to have it. The moment I had a chance to purchase it, I did! It's the perfect purple shade for me, everyone notices it every single time I wear it. It's a bit pricier than other brands, but the colours just make it worth it.

Also, good job on shipping to the Philippines! Cheers! xx

Gorgeous
I love this lipstick. I own a fair amount of purple lipsticks, but this is by far my favourite- it has a subtle iridescence with a slight blue tone which is simply stunning. Possibly one of my favourite lipsticks of all time; it's long lasting, beautiful, and I find the formula just right- while it is matte, it still manages not to dry out your lips. Can't recommend enough!

18 March 2015

So awesome
The lipstick isn't dry and stays on for hours. I bought this lipstick last year and wear it most days, and even now it barely looks half used. Such a bright amazing colour, this one is defiantly my favourite.

19 December 2014

YES!!
ESP is rich and heavily pigmented. I do not find it 'dry' or 'difficult' to apply. On the contrary, it goes on smooth for me. A couple of passes on the lips and it goes from opaque to a deep purple. A fantastic change from wearing brick or burgundy reds! I love that I have the option of making this matt formula glossy on the lips and/or even satiny or not. ESP is definitely rock star color and the formula is perfect! I can't believe I waited so long. I am an Illamasqua lipstick convert! Please, please, please... keep making this color. LOVE!!!

28 October 2014

I almost don't want to use it.
It's my favourite lipstick so far! I've just asked my friend to get it for me when she was in the States and my gosh, my heart was just so happy when I first saw it.

I think it's the perfect purple for me, and even my mum loves the colour! She said it's so 90's! Hahaha. The colour pay-off is amazing, but the application is a tad bit difficult. It's soooo matte that it rubs vigorously on my lips and I fear for its life.

7 October 2014

Very good!
This lipstick is great. It covers well and is easy to apply, stays on through a lot of wear and is generally very nice. I had expected a deeper colour though, it comes off as almost pink which really isn't the look I'm going for sadly.

27 May 2014

Amazing colour, questionable formula
This was my first lipstick purchase from Illamasqua. The pigment is absolutely incredible, and it's worth the purchase for the colour and matte effect. However I do have some drawbacks regarding applying and the lipstick itself. The lipstick snapped when I first used it, and it's difficult on a brush. The last isn't as long as I wanted, although I'm extremely fussy over wear time (if it can survive eating/drinking etc). I love Illamasqua products though, and hasn't put me off trying another lipstick.

Colour is great but lipstick itself takes some work
The colour is amazing , absolutely slays macs heroine , wear with severity lip pencil to add even more depth my one complaint is it's patchy application but this can be remedied with well prepared lips , ex-foliate, moisturise , use a primer or good lip pencil for best results

7 March 2014

Almost perfect
Getting this lipstick to look fabulous does take some work, but it's worth it. I love purple lips, and ESP is one of my favourites.

18 February 2014

Esp best purple
ESP has been the best purple I've came across , lasts long and its very eye catching , worth the money , esp if you like the colour purple love it x

ESP review
I love the Illamasqua lipsticks, but mainly because I always go for a matte look. They're not the best to apply - you have to add the colour with a light hand, as the product is quite dry so it doesn't move easily along your lip. Apart from having to be careful in application, the colour has incredible staying power, which is handy for when you don't want to have to be constantly re-applying. Finally, for this particular shade, as other customers have said the colour can seem slightly patchy. I barely notice it though and it's still an enjoyable colour to wear and admire! I also have liable which has the same problem of being a little dry. However, once on they both don't feel too dry on your lips. I still prefer the brand NARS for experience, but Illamasqua do better colours, and are more ethical as a company (in their policies on animal testing and such).

27 December 2013

Purple perfection
I live for this lipstick its so stunningly eye catching,.. always get complimented on my look. So long lasting you won't constantly be retouching

19 December 2013

Great product
This is a great product and comes beautifully packaged. It is the perfect unusual colour that no other make up brands dare to sell! I look suitably strange I love it!

24 October 2013

disappointing
this is the first illamasqua lipstick I purchase and I have to say it was disapponting.The colour is absolutely gorgeous but the texture was horrible.it doesn't bother me that it's dry-I was going for a matte finish anyway-but what I find very disappointing is that it was very patchy and it applied uneven.i tried applying it both straight from the tube and with a lip brush but nothing worked.lip balm helps but then it loses its matte finish and it doesn't last long.I would not recommend it.

9 October 2013

Super gorgeous
I read reviews saying this lipstick was very drying and hard to work with that you have to use a lip brush and scrub your lips before.... BUT as soon as I got it I was so excited just used it straight from the tube on my dry lips and it was so creamy it just gilded on. I'm in love with this lipstick it's beautiful. Never going to believe reviews again. I must have more colours

7 October 2013

Really lovely colour
This lipstick has a very unique and intense colour. I have yet to find another lipstick with this shade. The texture is very dry though so make sure you put a bit lip balm underneat. Because of its texture it's hard to apply evenly so the best application is with a lip pencil. But it lasts almost forever which makes up for it :)

30 July 2013

Fab color not so fab texture
I absolutely love this color but is is far too dry and a nightmare to apply evenly, HOWEVER when i finished messing around with brushes etc to get it on properly it looked fantastic and stayed put all night :)

4 July 2013

Totally gorgeous
The best purple lipstick I have ever EVER purchased! Love the way it stays put all day and I get so many compliments! <3

4 July 2013

PERFECTION IN A STICK
This lipstick is just Fab!!! I cannot stop wearing it and it lasts all day! I know people say its dry although all matte lipsticks are so I always layer over a small amount of lip balm and if I'm going out I love to add my Illamasqua lipgloss in Boost over it. I going to wear it to my wedding day too!

2 July 2013

Can't Recommend
I wanted to love this lipstick I have wanted a really purple lipstick for a long time.

Unfortunately the formula is a nightmare, stiff dry and no matter what I did it was patchy. Total nightmare :( I have tried a few different application methods and nothing works so it's kind of useless to me now.

18 June 2013

Great shade, bad texture.
I usually like the dry textures of Illamasqua Lipsticks, however this one is too dry to apply smoothly onto my lips, so the colouring is uneven.
That being said, the colour is amazing and looks great especially with dark and metallic eye makeup. This shade also suits EVERY skin type. This shade is versatile and easy to colour-match, so with a bit of patience, this could become a favourite for a lot of people.

19 May 2013

Fabulous Effect
I adored the lipsticks! I used Apocalips and Pristine. As I do a lot of theatre I wanted to get noticed. I wore Apocalips in the streets of london, and got a lot of smiles! Very smooth, buttery texture,great colour and WOW appeal. Goes on good with a few good strokes. Apply lots for best results. Great for actors and bold girls. Get your wowcha on now!

11 May 2013

Love ESP!
It amazing i like the texture i usually i tend to not wear lipstick but with this i forget i have it on :) it's become my daily lipstick! I have to buy another :) Thanks !

9 May 2013

Perfect Purple
I have been after a matte dark purple since forever, this is perfect and best applied with a lipbrush. Colour lasts also, I kissed my boyfriend, my cat and had a bath whilst wearing it and it's great.

8 May 2013

Really good, almost great.
I absolutely love this shade of lipstick!

Sadly, it doesn't have the best texture, and I find it doesn't go on very smoothy. Once it's on, it looks awesome, but you do have to perceiver with it when applying. However, I would say it's worth it for the great shade .
