Illamasqua Touch Intense Lipgloss ($22) is what the brand calls a red with fine shimmer. I call it a must have! This beautiful shade has been available in the UK for a while but it recently launched just in time for Valentine’s Day with the Illamasqua I’m the One Collection at Bloomingdales.
Please if you’re a fan of red, GRAB this!
Illamasqua Touch Intense Lipgloss isn’t typically a shade I migrate too as I consider it a touch too cool for my skin tone. I like warmer reds to be honest.
This red is sizzling though and I’m completely hooked on it. Hooked enough to grab a back up! I was thinking of combining it with Urban Decay Gash Lipstick and see what madness comes out of it.
Touch Lipgloss, Feisty Lip Pencil, and Maneaster Lipstick
It wears well for around five hours on me without a single bit of stickiness or tackiness. It’s lightweight, with a slick feel and has a nice hydrating feel on lips with a high shine finish. Of course, I probably should mention the crazy pigmentation as it rocks an opaque finish on a single application and builds to pure vividness. Of course, it helps dramatically that it includes a lip brush for application because lord knows that’s so helpful to build with. Sponge applicators are great but can be super annoying sometimes!
It does have a slightly fruity flavor that’s quite pleasant to my mouth but sensitive users but not love it.
This is the first time I’m trying Illamasqua Intense Lipgloss and Touch has made me want to indulge in several more shades. The pigment, the texture, and the finish make for a beautiful quality gloss that earns a spot on my HG (holy grail) list.
