ILIA Funnel of Love Lipstick

23 Jul 2014

As you may know I went to London for the Field Trip Tour and visited the green beauty haven that is Content Beauty. Whilst I was there I picked up an ILIA lipstick in the colour Funnel of Love. I had actually wanted Karma Chameleon but it was very bright and I already have a lot of brights so I made the sensible decision to choose a colour that I don't have!

ILIA Beauty was founded by the inspiration to create a connection between organic beauty and contemporary fashion. ILIA has a prestige line of natural and organic lip products that combine superior colour performance and nourishing organics. All ILIA products are made with 85% certified organic ingredients that nourish the skin. I didn't know that the organic ingredients were so high before reading about the lipstick on Content! ILIA are on the higher end of the natural make-up scale and the packaging is so luxe. The lipstick is housed in a grey matte lipstick tube inside a lovely aubergine shade box. 
 
My first impressions of ILIA weren't that great as it was the Moonbeams & Polkadots Illuminator that I tried first. It's an okay highlighter but it didn't blow me away. So I was happy that I got to try the lipstick in Content before making a purchase this time.

Funnel of Love is described as a a peachy nude and I completely agree. It's the perfect colour that I can just whip on if I'm not wearing make-up and it just finishes off my look when I do wear make-up. It's the perfect colour to go with a smoky eye and I think it really complements my skin tone. I've been wearing this so much since I bought it on the Field Trip Tour and I love it!

It's a matte formula but it goes on really smooth, however it's a teeny bit drying on the lips so I make sure I use lip balm beforehand so my lips don't look dry or flaky when it starts to fade off. It's a really wearable shade that I personally think would work well on all skin tones.

  4. Hmm, I wonder if all of the lip conditioners are the same, or the hydrating properties get affected by the colors? I think you're the first one whom I've read say that it's a ittle drying. I have the lip crayon and i'm glad it worked well for me coz I have chapped lips too. xx

    1. That's strange! Its not very drying but it does stick to any dry patches I have on my lips, especially when it wears off. I think it must get affected by the colours! xx
