Illamasqua Intense and Sheer Lipgloss Swatches
TGIF! What a long week it has been for me! I've been working my ass off and doing extra hours and work. I'm pooped now but I just want to throw this post out there for you before I pass out because I haven't posted anything since Monday.
I currently own 2 Illamasqua Intense Lipglosses and 1 Illamasqua Sheer Lipgloss. I've got them swatched for you. The two that you see above, I got them through the Illamasqua Alter Ego Mystery set. I must say I am quite happy with them.
Succubus is a gorgeous opaque true red, no shimmers. I really love how this one looks on me. Very pigmented and glossy. The consistency and formula was nice too. If you are looking for a red gloss for the holidays, this would be one to consider.
Tantrum is a semi-sheer purple-ish pink shimmery gloss. It gives just enough color for my pale lips. This one settles in my lip lines. It's noticeable up close but not to obvious I think.
Last but not least, Hermetic is an intense burgundy gloss with shimmers. I think this color is appropriate for fall and even for the holidays. Not sure why the formula with this one is a bit different because it is thicker and sticky. Some people may be uncomfortable with that but the color is beautiful I think. It doesn't apply evenly but I think if you wear it over a lip liner, it should be fine.
Overall, I do like these Illamasqua glosses. The Intense shades are very pigmented. They have a subtle and pleasant fruity scent to them.
Sorry, if I didn't put much detail on this post but I am very tired and ready to crash. Feel free to comment if you have any questions. Hope everyone enjoy their weekend.
Do you own any Illamasqua glosses? If so which shade would you recommend I try.
