Illamasqua Lipstick in Fable
Illamasqua describes Fable as a "matte bright rose pink" and although there are roses in this shade I have to disagree with this description. To me, fable is a warm toned light pink, I would even go as far as saying it could be described as a coral. It has a very summery and 1960s vibe to it in my opinion. Like all Illamasqua lipsticks that I've tried, Fable is very opaque and none of my natural lip colour shows through. I have pigmented lips so I appreciate that this lipstick looks identical on my lips and in the tube.
The finish of Fable is extremely matte which means it can unfortunately show any dryness you have on your lips. Although I prefer the matte look I often pair this with some gloss to make it more comfortable to wear. Illamasqua lipsticks are very thick on the lips so they need a lot of blotting. All of the work is worth it though as this lipstick is very long lasting and doesn't move all around my face (I seem to have this problem a lot!).
