Illamasqua Intense Lip Glosee- Artiface*
I am definitely one of those people who are set in their ways- on nights out you will only ever see me with a smoky eye with a nude/pinky nude lipstick/gloss on. During the day you’ll probably only see me wearing mascara if that, maybe a bit of blusher if I can be bothered. However as its officially summer (I use that term loosely) lately I’ve been wearing more bolder colours on my lips, and this is the shade I’ve been reaching for.
I’ve had this since the Illamasqua Leeds store opening back in December (feels like it was only yesterday) and I’ve never really had a chance to wear it properly. Now in the tube this colour looks scary (well to me it does)- super bright bubble gum pink. However I’ve realised if I use very little of the product, instead of slicking it on like there’s no tomorrow, the colour is very wearable. Personally Illamasqua lip glosses are slightly sticky and like all lip glosses my hair is attracted to it like there’s no tomorrow, however it does last a good 2-3 hours before I need to reapply this. My own gripe with this is the fact that you have to squeeze the tube to get the product out, I prefer a screw top with an applicator. Apart from that I would definitely recommend trying their lip glosses if you get the chance.
Illamasqua lip glosses are available direct from their website/stores and online from Selfridges, Debenhams and Asos.
