Loving Illamasqua Touch Intense Lipgloss but not the price? Give Black Radiance Ice Angel Refreshing Lip Gloss in Scarlett a try at a mere $2.99.
It’s not an exact dupe mind you but it comes close plus it looks like liquid metal on lips! Yes please, bring that lip drama!
Black Radiance Ice Angel Refreshing Lip Gloss s a thinly textured peppermint flavored and fragranced lipgloss with a high shine and a metallic finish. Apparently the mint helps keep your breath fresh…shrug! It tastes nice that much is true!
This little three dollar lipgloss packs the pigment of a full coverage liquid lipstick! I find the texture wears very comfortably without being tacky or sticky. A single layer is opaque but I find two applications give the gloss sizzle and pop it lacks with one. I can get a solid four hours of wear from it before it fades and leaves a slight staining effect behind.
Scarlett is a gorgeous garnet red that really reminds me of Illamasqua’s touch shade but it’s a bit richer in color.

I will rant about a few things though…
This has a small precise brush for application that’s very dense. It really doesn’t bend well so I find the texture is a little hard on my lips and it makes application a little difficult with no give to the bristles. I understand why they did this as lip brushes tend to have issues with split bristles and get very messy but the brush is a bit of a pain none the less.
Secondly, this goes for all Black Radiance Lipgloss products, PLEASE STOP with the TERRIBLE stickers! They seal the packaging with a wrap around stick but it’s impossible to remove and when you do get it to remove it leaves a sticky mess all around the tube. It’s awful! Get some new stickers to seal your gloss with because this isn’t working for me.
Overall, rants aside, Black Radiance Ice Angel Refreshing Lip Gloss is a total win for me! I’ll buy more! You can’t afford not to at this price as the pigment is crazy and really it looks like I’m wearing $30 lipgloss on my mouth and it only costs me $3!
