The Edit


If you ask us, nothing pulls a look together quite like a lipstick can. From cool nudes to bold brightsthe transformational quality of a lipstick can shout a thousand words. That’s why we have expanded one of our favourite categories to allow you to find your own voice and celebrate your individuality. Adding Sheer Veil and Ultramatter to two cult favourites, Antimatter and Loaded Lip to form an all-encompassing lip collection with a choice of finishes and endless colour options. 


The long lasting, colour intense Antimatter Lipsticks are a semi-matte cushioned finish and a cult favourite amongst our Illamafia. Half-way between matte and satin, Antimatter lipsticks glide onto lips smoothly and provide comfortable, continuous wear. With over 30 shades there is something for everyone and every mood, making it the perfect go to finish especially for makeup artists.  

‘Antimatter Lipstick gives a soft matte finish but with a cushioned comfort feel to the lips. While this formula is dense in colour, I love to apply it lightly for a soft stained look by using my fingers and patting the colour onto the lips. For a full look, apply with a makeup brush or straight from the bullet. I sometimes use Antimatter to create a soft blush look, by using a soft fluffy brush and blending in circular motions on to the apples of cheeks.’

Load up on colour and shine with our Loaded Lip PolishThis formulation provides immediate intense pay off from the initial stroke to create a bold, glossy lip. It can also be applied lightly as a lip stain that wears all day for a more subtle look. Forget a sticky 90’s gloss, Loaded Lip Polish is enriched with Sweet Almond Oil and Jojoba Oil to help condition your lips leaving them feeling soft and smooth.  In 14 amazing shades including clear Glaze that is a makeup bag must.  

‘For fuller-looking lips, concentrate the lip gloss in the centre of the lips this is where the light is going to hit them and create the illusion of plumper lips. You can also apply on top of your favourite Lipstick to add a highly pigmented and mirror-shine finish.’
