Review: IQ Cosmetics Matt Lipstick (Summer)14:26
I can't believe the summer is almost over and I've only now found the perfect summer shade of lipstick. I love orange based reds and today's pick is just like that. If you're still looking for a nice matte orange based red, then this one is a pretty good choice as far as the shade goes.
The lipstick is from a brand called IQ Cosmetics, which I think can be bought only in Bipa stores. I got it in Austria. The shade Summer is part of their Matt Lipstick collection. There are 5 shades available in this collection, but I went for this gorgeous orange based red.
It costs 4.99€ and there's 3.5 grams of product in it. The packaging is plastic and matte black. How appropriate for the formula. The packaging clicks nicely and should be secure enough. The bullet has an IQ sign on the top.
The shade Summer is a very orange based red. It's one of those shades that was really popular this spring and summer season.The formula is creamy and matte. It's extremely pigmented and one swipe is enough to get really bold lips. I find that all of the IQ lipsticks have a very pleasant vanilla smell.
The lipstick is a bit drying, like most of the matte lipsticks. It stays on very well and even stains the lips a little, that's how well pigmented it is. I sometimes like to apply it as a stain and dab it into the lips for a more soft color. Sometimes, I may even put a moisturizing lip gloss over it. If you apply it like a normal lipstick, you get crazy bold color that will surely make you stand out, wherever you are.
Here you can see how it looks like applied as a light stain and how it looks like full on.
