YES I HAVE ANOTHER PIMPLE. ;_;
Illamasqua Obey is a milky pale peachy pink with a hint of coral (IN REAL LIFE). This lipstick is marketed as a matte finish lipstick, and yes, this is matte as matte if you apply it to totally bare lips. However, being matte, the lipstick is pretty drying and for that reason I really can wear this lipstick without lip balm. That's the reason why there is a sheen in the swatch. Although on the very inner area of my lips it seems like the lipstick sinks into fine lines, I really don't think that's the case if your lips are exfoliated and moisturized. The upside to this matte lipstick is the amazing pigmentation, one swipe and I have opaque lips. The lipstick does not seem to have a particular smell. The packaging is very sleek, but I must say, many people say that the base is not strong as the lipstick often breaks off. I haven't experienced breaking off, but the lipstick does move and the side of the bullet has been dented by the tube, very unfortunate. Without lip balm, I assume this lipstick will last longer, but with lip balm, I get about 4-5 hours of wear.
