This review covers Illamasqua’s Theatre of the Nameless Intense Lipglosses in Belladonna. Illamasqua describes Belladonna as a “deep pink.”
The Intense Lipglosses come in clear, squeezable tubes and have slanted plastic applicators.
This is a very opaque, strong, bright, cool-toned magenta/pink. You get a glossy finish.
Some lip glosses are very thin, almost watery. Illamasqua’s Intense Lipglosses are more thick, though they aren’t sticky or tacky. The wear time is also longer than most lipglosses–3.5-5 hours if you’re not drinking or eating.
Ease of Use: 9/10
You get a tiny bit of resistance when applying to the lips because of the formula, but otherwise the gloss goes on easily. You will need to be careful and precise–Belladonna’s bright color will make any mistakes stand out.
You get 0.2 fl oz for £13.00 ($20.00 in the US). For comparison, MAC’s Pro Longwear Lipglasses are 0.06 fl oz and cost $18.50 each. You get tons more product-for-price plus opaque color with Belladonna.
