Ilamasqua Intense Lipgloss Review and Swatches

Dontcha just love products with "intense" in the name. Golly, that must mean they are really special. Intense gloss..oooooo! So important!

Ilamasqua Intense Lipgloss has made it's way to US shores recently and the Muse must say indeed it's intense. Intensely rich, intensely pigmented, intensely thick and creamy....yup, intense for shiz.

Jump for it!

All though I'm not a lover of matte gloss I can't help but be slightly tickled over the new Ilamasqua Intense Lipgloss.

Housed in an ultra slim line tube this gloss is unlike anything I've had the pleasure of trying to date. It's more like a lip enamel as it gives lips a patent leather shine.

I've never had the pleasure of using anything like it in all my beauty days. It's quite like a thick, creamy, ooey gooey lip cream. The gloss is incredibly pigmented and extremely thick in consistency. You'd think the combination of those two traits would make it a mess to deal with but so not the case. The gloss fairly glides onto lips without having to go back over it (you can if you want to get an extra, extra bold look) as it's rich pigmentation covers lips completely in a thick layer of beautiful gloss. Although thick it feels quite comfortable on without being sticky, tacky, or overwhelmingly heavy. It's quite lightweight for such a formula and feels natural and pleasant on my lips.

I'm actually pleased with the applicator as well which is a simple squeeze tube with a narrow, thin slant. The slant fits the curve of my lips quite well and aids in getting the gloss in place minus mess or drama. The gloss itself also has a fresh fruity taste and scent. It also manages to wear very long.

The color I tried was Indulge which is a hot neon pink. Not exactly my shade of choice but surprisingly works well with a minimal makeup look!

If you're a lover of very thick glosses with super pigmentation Illamasqua Intense Lip Gloss is bound to please.


Have you tried Illamasqua gloss yet?

Loving it?

Do share!

That color looks like it's right up my alley :) since I am apparently turning into a hot pink / magenta fiend!

Oh, I really want to see this on you! I love when you try stuff on, we're about the same skintone (although I think I'm a bit paler). Do you think this is too intense for pale girls? I have to have the Illamsqua blush you reviewed a while back.
