It’s #NationalLipstickDay on the 29th July and what better way to celebrate than Professional tips on how to let your lips do all the talking  

Make a statement with our handcrafted Lipsticks, Lip Liners and Loaded Lip Polishes. Create a stained lip, matte pout or a glossy finish with our amazing shades and formulas. 

With our go to long lasting, colour intense Antimatter Lipsticks and non-sticky, high-gloss mirror-shine Loaded Lip Polish; it is easy to see why our Illamafia are obsessed with our Lip finishes. With hidden benefits, go bold with colour and be the master of your own creation.

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.

Our Antimatter Lipsticks bring you intense pay off from the initial stroke and it can also be applied lightly as a lip stain that wears all day. Apply with an Angled Eye Liner Brush for a super sharp cupid’s bow, with over 30 shades to choose from you will spoilt for choice. 

Match with our Colouring Lip Pencil for a defined pout or mix with our Loaded Lip Polish, for a pout worth puckering up for. Add the right amount of pop and shine to any lip with super smooth application.  Apply to the lips using the applicator, for fuller-looking lip concentrate the lip gloss in the centre of the lips. 

Loaded Lip Polish is perfect for anybody who wants an uber glossy finish lip look. This gloss has a comfortable feel and also contains Babassu and Jojoba Oil to help condition your lips. Apply on top of your favourite Lipstick to add a highly pigmented and mirror-shine finish.
