Company’s Description

Come out of the shadows with high-shine, colour-rich Illamasqua Intense Lipgloss in a wide range of bold colours. Create lips that look full and glossy, without feeling sticky with this “liquid lipstick”. Draw attention to your lips, and to you.

Illamasqua’s Holiday 2013 collection includes a new Intense Lipgloss in the shade Maiden, which is a pale, warm peach shade.

Packaging: 9/10

The Intense Lipgloss comes in a rectangular, clear plastic tube and contains a brush applicator.

Quality: 9.25/10

Maiden is a light, warm peach without shimmer that leaves a subtly glossy sheen on the lips. Maiden is one of those colors that pales out the lips without making you look completely washed-out or dead. I find it balances a smoky lid very well.

The formula is medium/thin and doesn’t have any stickiness to it. It’s pleasant to wear and lasts about 2 hours on the lips. The pale nature of the color can emphasize dryness you have on the lips, so exfoliate them well before application.

Ease of Use: 9/10

I find that the long brush applicator for this gloss draws out too much product from the tube, so I always wipe it off before applying. Otherwise, application is simple.

Price: 9.25/10

You get 0.2 fl oz (7 ml) for around $23.00.
