Today I wanted to review my favorite pink, Illamasqua Intense Gloss in Indulge. It’s a bright hot pink, bordering on neon, with a creamy texture. There’s no shimmer or sparkle to it. Yet, I think that makes it easier for me to get away with wearing it with a lot of different looks than if it had shimmer or sparkle.

You can purchase Illamasqua Intense Gloss at Sephora.com or Illamasqua.com.

Price:
$20 for 0.2 oz

Does it live up to its claims?
Yes! It really is a fantastic gloss with a nice texture and super pigmentation. It’s almost like a liquid lipstick. It’s not drying. It almost seems a bit moisturizing. It’s pigmented enough to be worn on its own, with or without a lipliner, or on top of lipstick. I think this is a shade of pink that would be flattering on all skintones.

Would I purchase again?
Yes! I love this color! While $20 is at the more expensive end of glosses for me, I love the product. I want to wear it daily, though I typically change up my lips as often as I change my eyeshadow.
