Review | Ilia Lipstick 'Funnel of Love'

Sunday, May 11



Ilia Beauty are my holy grail for organic lipsticks. With 85% organic ingredients, their colour range is beautiful and the quality of their lipsticks easily rivals that of mainstream brands. A recent love of mine is 'Funnel of Love' - a peachy pink toned matte shade that adds the perfect flush of colour to your lips for the summer. With subtle warm undertones, it's flattering on almost any skin tone, and according to Ilia is inspired by the laid back glamour of Brigitte Bardot.

Ingredients

Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil*, Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Seed Oil*, Jojoba (Simmondsia Chinensis) Seed Oil*, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil*, Beeswax (Cera Alba)*, Triisostearyl Citrate, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter*, Manihot Esculenta (Tapioca) Starch *, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Rosa Canina (Rose Hip) Fruit Oil, Sage (Salvia Officinalis) Leaf Extract, Tocopherol. May Contain: Mica, Titanium Dioxide, Iron Oxide (CI 77499, CI 77492, CI 77491), Red 7 CI15850, Red 28 CI45410, Yellow 5 CI19140. 

*Certified Organic Ingredient

Thankfully there is no carmine in this lipstick. I know carmine is a more natural alternative to synthetic dyes, but to me that doesn't necessarily mean it's a better alternative. In my opinion, no animal - no matter how small - should be routinely killed en masse just so we can wear a nice lipstick or blush. No products will be featured on my blog that use carmine in their colourings. 

The Lipstick




The lipstick delivers an intense colour pay off that is easy to work with and blends beautifully into the lips. Despite being matte, the lipstick is incredibly nourishing and moisturising and I could almost apply this as a balm to keep my lips hydrated. There is absolutely no dryness or flaking, without doubt due to the blend of beautiful oils and cocoa seed butter. The finish is modern and fresh, needing just one coat for a vibrant splash of colour. This is the perfect summer shade, and lasts for a long time. I'm a lip-licker (!), and this still stayed around, although I do reapply my lipstick fairly regularly to keep it from looking tired and faded. I am highly impressed with this colour from Ilia, and think it should be in everyone's make up bag for the summer. 

The Price - £22
With Ilia you pay for a quality product with truly beautiful ingredients. In my opinion, it is completely worth paying a little bit extra for.

  6. This lipstick looks gorgeous on you. This color was the first ILIA lipstick that I bought and has become a staple in my everyday routine. I totally think that $25 is well worth it for a quality lipstick. Besides, I don't know anybody who goes through a tube of lipstick super fast!

  7. I have a Couleur Caramel one that looks really similar (maybe you've never ever heard of that brand XD) Matte but not drying, that's a must ^^

    1. Is it the Limited edition one? I've got the shade in 116 and although it is similar, I think my CL is more vibrant. Also it stays put no matter what. I love it but I'd like to try out Ilia too :)
