Review: Illamasqua intense lipgloss in Petulant

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.

Petulant is a rich, fuchsia.  It leans more red than pink or purple, but the color itself is STUNNING.  There’s no visible sparkle or shimmer, but it’s QUITE glossy.

My comments on packaging and overall value from previous reviews still hold.  It doesn’t apply the most evenly, it’s more expensive than other decent mid-range lipglosses, like MAC lipglass, and you do get slightly less product than I’d really like.

    Wow, the shine is sort of vinyl-esque. That is really glossy stuff.

      It’s really flattering too, since it actually fills in your lips texture a bit so it isn’t just reflecting lines and scabs.

      Especially with the medium-pigmentation level in it, it’s just this deep color that really DOES look like a vinyl coating. These have been pretty fun to play with!

      Illamasqua is a bit difficult to find. You can buy it online from their site, or sephora. But many sephora stores don’t carry it. It’s a really pretty product, but definitely not one I would expect to be in common use!

      It’s a very flattering look that melts away most of my natural lip lines… they look so pillowy and smooth! I love a good thick gloss.
