After I saw Lisa Eldridge use Illamasqua "Obey" in her video documenting a "modern take on 60's peachy makeup" I. had. to. have. it. If you don't watch Lisa's videos, you're missing out on so many amazing, insightful tutorials from a very successful veteran makeup artist. I could sit and watch her videos for hours, and so what if I do!?! This is a judgement free zone, Mom! Seesh. I applied it very lightly and made it a little more wearable with a thin layer of Smashbox Lip Enhancing Gloss in "Pop." This gloss is one of my favorites -- despite the fact that I, personally, am not a true lip gloss fan. Gotta give credit where credit is due!
In the flesh I'd say that this lip appears a little more chalky and bright, but barely. It really depends on your application with this lipstick, as it can be used in a variety of ways for different effects.
