LOTW | IMAN Cosmetics Luxury Lipstick in Babydoll

IMAN Cosmetics Luxury Lipstick in Babydoll review and swatch

Hello everyone! I hope you've all had a great week. I've spent most of mine at work, trying to catch up on the hours I missed during all the stress that was third year! My lipstick of the week was one mentioned in this haul, the IMAN Luxury Moisturising Lipstick in Baby Doll* which I actually picked out myself. I can't believe how perfect this shade is, yaaaaaaaaaas!

Price: £12.99 This is a very mid ranged lipstick and I think it is priced just right. The formula, as well as the unique and very flattering nude shade makes it worth the money and I will definitely be repurchasing.

Colour: This is the most perfect nude shade I have ever come across for my medium skin tone! I am generally a fan of pinkier shades for nude lipsticks, as the more orange coloured ones tend to look odd against my light brown skin - they normally clash! In the swatch below, it's coming out a little more orange than it appears on my lips - I think that's because my lips are pretty pigmented. ‘Babydoll’ is the perfect mix of nude/peach and brown, which looks so flattering on my medium skin and it doesn’t wash me out in the slightest. I normally wear it with Rimmel’s Tiramisu lip liner and it’s the perfect shade for everyday, going to work, popping to the shops, or even pairing with more of a smokey eye. I am such a huge fan of this shade and could not be happier to have it in my collection.

Formula and Lasting time: The formula is satin/creamy and glides on like a dream! One swipe is also enough pigmentation for me, which I'm a huge fan of, although you can build it up for a more opaque look. This lipstick is so comfortable to wear, it feels almost like a balm and I have to say after wearing liquid lipsticks for a while I've missed wearing something so light and comfy! Lasting time is pretty standard for a lippie with this formula, it's around 2.5 hours before it's faded.

Favourite way to wear it: I like lining my lips with a neautral lip liner, usually the Rimmel Tiramisu and then I apply this, one layer for medium coverage, two for fuller coverage. Finally a colour and lipstick I can just wear ALONE without mixing!

Overall: I am so glad I picked this lipstick up! Finally I have a nude shade for my complexion which I don't need to mix up with other shades. The packaging is stunning, black and gold, with a clear screen on the lid. The lid is also very secure and I think this lipstick is fantastic value for money. As IMAN Cosmetics is a brand specifically created for women of colour, you can really see that they have put a lot of thought into the shades and I only wish I had discovered this sooner! 

Available from: the UK Iman website here or currently on sale on feelunique here!

Rating: 9/10 - I just wish these lipsticks were easily available in stores so I could swatch the other shades rather than relying on online swatches.

Repurchase? Yes 100%! I know I was gifted this, but that's when you know that a product is really great - when you know you're gonna have to repurchase!

Have you tried this range of lipsticks? Have you found the perfect nude lippie for you?
