I expected this lipstick to be deeper, darker and matter than it appears on me. Surprisingly I don't mind the semi matte finish, it's comforting on the lips and it develops well over wear. Often Illamasqua matte lipsticks can be quite hard to work with, I found this lipstick much easier to apply than some of the others I have tried.
Growl is one of those lipsticks that suits, but also looks completely different on everyone. This lipstick on my complexion is more a scarlet than a mahogany brown - It's perfect for those beautiful berry bitten lips. I love it to inject a bit of colour on my lips and at this time of the year I often opt for richer tones like Growl. This lipstick is so seasonally appropriate and I really recommend it to all you berry lovers out there.
Have any of you tried Growl?
Lots of Love
