In 2014 Illamaqua amazed me again with its newly released formula of illamasqua lip liquid. They recently introduced three great shades of the season. I got two of them Exotic and forbidden. The formula is something different. It's a thick liquid in tube, but instantly settle matte when you put it on. I still don't understand its amazing formula, but it's amazing.

You cannot ignore the illamasqua glorious packaging and this time illamasqua come up with an amazing transparent tubes. It's a thick liquid in a tube, but dries matte. Although both shades are equally beautiful, but I like the exotic more because its so trendy and chick. A pure orange shade for summers. I found it very pigmented and smooth. Forbidden is vivid tone pink. I usually ignore such bright lipstick shades neither I have liked it when it arrived, but started loving it after applying it on. It was looking for a bit too bright in tube, but on lips it feels really beautiful. I like the amazing soft and smooth texture which dries matte, but do not feel sticky or over dry and it stays for a very long time. However, I'm very happy and impressed with Illamasqua Matte Lip Liquids, but application could be a little tricky I drew outside my lipline and applied a lipstick with the brush carefully.
