The lipgloss is stunning, according to Illamasqua it's 'blueberry violet', but to be more exact it's a light purple with a shimmery blue duochrome to it. Alone it isn't too opaque but it is still noticeable and looks really unusual, but over a purple lipstick it looks amazing.
I like that it comes with a brush rather than those ridiculous squeezy tubes or doe foot applicators, but I think that I got a dodgy one because it seems to have a bit of plastic sticking out from the bristles which isn't great! It's only tiny but still annoying.
Onto the swatches! Apologies for my gross dry lips... I tried to pick the best one out of a bad bunch haha! In the bottom two I have applied it over Topshop Inhibition which is a combination I absolutely love!
