Illamasqua just came out with a black matte color called Scorn. It’s kind of like “the partner” for their new nail quills.
If you haven’t seen what nail quills are you can check them out here. I like the idea of the nail quills for a VERY theatrical event or maybe for someone so rich they don’t have to lift a hand to do anything. In other words, practical they are not, interesting, yes. 🙂
But back to Scorn. Let’s check it out.
Scorn is a jet black matte, though it’s not all that matte in my eyes. It definitely has a flat feel, but it also has a nice satiny finish that does reflect light. I much prefer these satin type mattes over chalky flat ones, however I’m not really into mattes at the moment. I kind of feel they have been done, unless it’s a totally different color that we haven’t seen yet.
The formula is nice, it’s extremely black and you could get away with one coat. I did two here anyway.
If you don’t already own a matte black, this is a great one. If you already do, then I don’t think it’s a “must have” or anything.
What do you think about Scorn?
