Illamasqua Intense Lipgloss in Mistress
Friday, 13 July 2012
I bought this lipgloss last week on a complete whim. I'm really not a lipgloss fan, I always find it too sticky and SO irritating when my hair gets glued to my mouth. But I was browsing the Debenhams sale section online and saw this, and since I'm not one to refuse a bargain, I just had to get it. I've never tried anything from Illamasqua before, so I was quite excited!
The lipgloss is usually £13 but is currently selling at £5.99 on Debenhams, and you get free delivery if you have a beauty card! I went for the shade Mistress as from the pictures online, it looked like a nice orange/coral. When I opened the package, I was gutted because it looked a bright red colour in the tube! However, once it's applied it does tone down a bit and it is more of a sheer coral on the lips. I really like it!
The thing that surprised me most about this lipgloss was the lack of stickiness! It's a really great consistency which gives good colour pay-off and high shine, but it doesn't feel like I've smeared syrup on my lips - yay! I really didn't like the applicator, it made it really awkward to apply the colour so I've been squeezing it out on my hand and then applying it.
I'm really tempted to pick up a few more shades whilst they're at this price!
Have you found any great bargains in the sales? Have you tried Illamasqua's lipgloss?
