Illamasqua Brink is a orange coral that shows up very bright in real life. Like in my previous post, Brink similar to Obey is meant to be a matte lipstick. When applied without a lip balm it truly is matte, but being matte the lipstick can be quite drying. For this reason, I apply lip balm and the lipstick looks like it has a sheen. Being a matte lipstick, Brink is extremely pigmented and I barely need any. With well moisturized lips, Brink does not sink into my lip lines at all. As a brighter lipstick, I was not surprised that this lipstick lasted quite well on my lips (5-7 hours, without eating). It does leave a slight stain. There is no smell and the packaging is sleek. Downsides to the packaging is that it seems the bullet isn't too strong and the bullet can break from the base or shift around.
