Illamasqua Intense Lipgloss is a very pigmented formula, though I never found it totally opaque. I’ll be reviewing three shades-Follow, Mistress, and Petulant.
Mistress is an unusual color. It’s a rich, red-orange. It’s not a true red at all. It’s very glossy, and there’s no sparkle or shimmer.
Previous thoughts on reviews still stand. I have minor quibbles with the packaging,and I wish that you got more product for the price. It doesn’t apply evenly straight from the tube, but it’s easy enough to touch up with a brush, or your finger.
Mistress blends nicely over other lip colors. Though it’s definitely best suited to warmer skin tones, I had nice luck blending it over a cool berry for a very bright coral.
